How to Feed Your Puppy

The dietary requirement of a puppy will largely be dependent on various key factors such as the breed, sex, age, as well as the activity level of the puppy. 

Newborn pups are reliant on their mother's milk for nourishment until they reach about 3 to 4 weeks of age. When the pup reaches one month of age, you can introduce some solid food bit by bit. Don't forget to do your research and provide your pup a nutritious, high-quality puppy food so that he can meet his daily nutritional requirements. Weaning could prove to be stressful for a young pup, and that is why you need to switch to a solid diet bit by bit (ideally at least 5 to 7 days). A sudden switch to a solid food diet could bring about digestive problems because of the lack of time for the pup's body to adjust to a new diet. Call your vet Gresham, OR immediately if your pup gets diarrhea in the process.
