I was trying to feed him and myself at the same time. Never do that again!!! Should I go ahead and try some soft puppy food with formula mixed in? They act like they are starving, but they are so fat! I have one brindle girl who has all of a sudden not take anything, not even the replacement milk. She just sits there and yaps non stop. I know she wants her mother, but Zoey will have nothing to do with them at all!!! I know part of the reason why is because of her condition and that they have teeth now.
Are you stimulating them to go to the bathroom? The poor thing may be all stopped up? If not Take a warm wet washcloth andrub her little bottom and try to help her go. Usually a puppy that is constantly crying is not a good sign
Get a high grade kibble and soak it in puppy formula not regualr milk until it is a mush and you can add a tiny bit of yogurt or cottage cheese . I didn't add anything to my mush but mine also nursed quite a bit longer than these pups.
You may also want to warm it up a tad to at least room temp the first few feedings.
Put a small amount on your finger and intro them to it. Some may take to eating on their wn sooner than others. Are you giving them water? If not start doing that as well?
The second week start substituting some of the formuka with water. Continue dropping the amount of formula used each week until you are only using kibble and water
At about 7 weeks they can eat regualr kibble with nothing added.
