The first month after weaning
The first month after weaning is the most difficult month for puppies to be managed. At this time, the puppies tend to suffer from loss of appetite and emotional restlessness due to sudden changes in eating habits. If this condition persists, the puppy is likely to fall ill. Therefore, during this time, you should feed some foods that are good in taste and easy to digest, and it is best to contain protein ingredients.
The food you prepared for the puppy during this period is very simple: add the appropriate amount of chopped fish, meat or cooked chopped greens to the liquid food such as soy milk, milk, porridge, etc. This is their delicious meal. .
The number of feedings during this period should be based on eating small meals. Feed 4-5 times a day, as long as the dog is only 80% full, to avoid letting the dog eat too much. For dogs with poor appetite, you can use small meals to feed. After the first time, it can improve the attraction of the food to the dog to mobilize the dog's appetite; eating less can make the dog always have a feeling of emptyness, which can correct the dog's picky eating habits.
