what can i feed my one month old shih tzu puppies?
my puppies are already one month old, is it advisable to feed them milk in bottle, along with their mother's breastfeeding, or what>? thanks. Ü
Probably, mother's milk alone is fine, unless she's not feeding them. Newborns need to eat every few hours for the first few weeks.
If you don't think they're getting enough from mother, Esbilac is a great formula to use. Your puppies are probably old enough to begin feeding them puppy food. You put the puppy food into a blender with water until it's liquid. Then you put the mixture in a bottle (you can enlarge the hole in the nipple) and start them out that way. Then, you gradually decrease the amount of water and start letting them lap it up from a bowl.
However, before trying anything, you should consult your vet. He/she is the best person to advise you in this.
