Default Puppy food

My two Chi's were born 4/6/15 and I got them two days ago. What should I be feeding them. We go to the vet in 3 days, I know they will tell me too. I am feeding them wet puppy food but they are having trouble licking it. I have had to ball it small put in mouth.

As they are only 6 weeks old,make sure you have some Nutrical / honey as they could suffer low blood sugar levels.They should have stayed with their mother till they were at least 10 - 12 weeks

Nutrical is very important and lots of food at all times!

What part of SC are you in? What are you trying to feed now?

There are special foods for 'weaning puppies' I believe. The other thing you can do, is buy some canned food and moisten it with broth, or water. They shoud be fed 4-6 times a day as they are so small. If you choose kibble, try a 5 star food like Fromm, or any other really good food.(At most boutique places) If you go to a Pet Co/Smart store Blue Buffalo grain free is a good one. Make sure you soak the kibble before you give it to them.
