How to Wean Your Puppies

As a puppy parent you should talk with your vet to learn the best timing and best method for weaning your puppies from their mom. The weaning phase generally starts around four weeks of age and ends by eight weeks of age. You can start by giving mom and pups a little separation time each day. Extend the time little by little. You can also introduce them to puppy chow. Place some in a bowl and wet it with warm water to make it soft. You may always want to use a milk replacer to help entice them. You can do the same with a bowl of water. Place it nearby and use your finger to dip in the bowl and then allow a few drops to fall in the pup’s mouth or on them so they know what it is. Talk to your vet Burlington, ON for more tips.
