The Puppies are 4 weeks old now and are starting to walk around a bit. I put them in the pen with something accross the doorway so mom can get in and out but for now the puppies can't.
When should I start offereing them food and do I start with wet food? They are just starting to get their teeth in, so I know I have to wait until the teeth are in a bit more. They are starting to get their personalities, Bear is confident and explores everything, Teddy is more shy and cries when mom isn't with him. They are sooooo huge. I am hoping once they are weaned they may lose a bit because they are so fat, they can barely waddle.
It's funny how the cold makes good friends out of two animals that usually ignore each other.
You can start weaning them now, only soft foods (super soft kibble completely soaked and mushed up in water, chicken baby food (BE SURE IT HAS NO ONION!!), cottage cheese, etc. Your vet may have some other recommendations as well for foods to wean onto. You can also soften the kibble with a milk replacer at first.
