Food for tiny puppy

651 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  chihuahua-lady
I have a new boy puppy who weighs 10 oz. and is 6 weeks old. Wondering about food and snacks??????? Feeding him Nutrical 3-4 x a day with canned Sc.Diet. Any recommendations? I am worried about him getting low blood sugar.

I'd get some Royal Canin or NetroMax or Wellness dry food and leave it out for him to eat whenever he wants and give him a bit of yogurt everyday. If he doesn't like the hard crunchies of the dry food you can always soak it in a bit of warm water or broth.

Oh BTW, welcome to another Okie
welcome :D when he's so small you can mix some canned food (like your science ) with a bit moistened eukanuba or royal canin ....
so they can eat easier.....and have all the nutrients :wave:

Welcome :wave:
Both of the above posts are good advice, I wouldn't give him the NutriCal unless he's acting like he might have low blood sugar. If he's eating good and drinking water he should be fine, a little bit of the NutriCal probably won't hurt though he is a little guy and 6wks is early to be away from his momma.
iv always gave my tiny tiny pups a bit of hony on my finger it keeps there sugar levels up apparently
