If this is the first time you have a puppy, it is expected that you ask yourself many questions, such as: what can and what can not your puppy eat. In the following article, we will tell you everything you need to know.
The feeding of the puppies is very important so that they grow up healthy, strong, and in very good health. Therefore, you must give it all the necessary nutrients.
Normally, although breast milk is essential during their first months, puppies can already take solid food at 3 or 4 weeks.
So at that time, you can add dry food with water and grind it to make a porridge. Then, as it grows, you can offer it drier.
How much food do you need? It is best to give small amounts of food frequently, depending on the age, size, and recommendations of the veterinarian.
Normally, when breastfeeding, you start with a spoonful of food 5 times a day. Then it varies by age.
From the time he begins to eat solid foods until weaning, about two months, you should give them about 4 or 6 meals a day. When it is two or three months old, about 4 meals a day.
Between four and six months, about 2-3 meals a day and, after six months, you can already eat 2 meals a day; but it depends on the breed, so you must consult with a professional.
We recommend reading the feeding instructions on the food container because they will guide you on feeding it and how much to give.
Because, for example, energy is key, a very active dog will need to eat more than one that is too calm, and that hardly goes out for a run.
Exercising is also very important, so you should take them out for a walk a few times a day and play with them whenever possible.
But you mustn’t feed them before or after exercising; better that there is 1 hour of margin.
Finally, remember to avoid so-called forbidden foods for dogs, as they could cause a lot of harm. And, if the feed feels bad, you might need a hypoallergenic one.
By following these tips, you will be taking care of your dog in magnificent conditions. And if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask us what we are here to help you.
