Feeding a Six Week Old Puppy

What do I feed a six week old Lab/German Shepherd puppy?



Feeding a Six Week Old Puppy

Most vets recommend leaving with mother until about 8 weeks, but lots of mothers wean younger so you can feed a high quality dry food which has been soaking in warm water for awhile, maybe a couple of hours. Let it get really soupy, put in in something like a pie plate and let them slop around in it. Gradually decrease the amount of water so that the pup is eventually eating dry food. This is better for the teeth and easier to manage, but that part wasn't your question. A good quality dog food is the answer. Not table scraps.(04/16/2009)

I would say soft food with puppy milk replacer mixed in or the mommy's food which has been soaked in puppy replacer milk.

The pup can eat regular soft or watered down puppy food; high quality not a grocery store brand. (04/20/2009)

I mix baby food with puppy food from the first time they eat dry food til they are about 8 weeks old. Remember they need a puppy food for the first year and should be fed a food that is formulated for large dogs so they don't grow too fast which can cause health problems later on down the line.
