Hi this is Dr. Holloway and I can help you with your question concerning your new puppies. First off congrats!

Puppies should be weaned off milk and wet food between 3-4 weeks of age. This is the period where they start getting teeth.

What are the puppies eating right now?

Expert:  Drhollowayvet replied 9 months ago.

They should have their teeth by now, are they showing interest in dry food but unable to break it down properly?
