When do puppies start eating on their own?
No do not give puppies milk. Unless it is Puppy formula. I start feedin my puppies puppy kibble about 3 weeks. Mom is starting to wear down a little and is spendind a little more time out of the box. I take Purina Puppy chow brown kibble only and put a little in a blender and blend it into a meal and feed it to my puppies with a little water to keep it from flying everywhere when the puppies slide into it..
Never stop Mom from nursing she will wean when she is ready. Some moms wean about 5 weeks some earlier and some a little later.
I like to feed my puppies 3 times a day. Some people say two. Here is the catch once you start feeding your puppies dog food. Mom will stop cleaning up the poop so have a poop plan in place. Newspaper or puppy pads whatever you like best.
Never feed puppies people food or cows milk.
If you are bottle feeding as ty asked there are special puppy and kitten formulas at pet food sections
I dont understand? have you been bottle feeding them? they shoud be able to drink milk on their own in a bowl by 5 weeks or so at the latest...
At 5 weeks you are going to have a very hungry puppy on your hands.
I've always seen anywhere from 3-5 weeks. Usually 5.
I would say at about five weeks.
id say three weeks
