My chihuahua had 3 puppies. They are 34 days old. They are trying to eat real food. When can I start feeding them? Also how much should I feed them if they are average a little over 1 lbs each? And when should they go to there first vet app

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Caramel?

Hi there

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

You can start feeding them now :)

I would just offer the food to them and NOT put restrictions on amount

They are very good at self-regulating intake

First visit to vet should be at 6 weeks

Take a stool sample with you

Okay?

Paul
