Never change your puppy’s diet instantly. A change of diet in the first few weeks of a puppy going to their new home can quickly lead to gastro, diahrrea, dehydration and an expensive visit to the vet. It is important that you continue to feed your puppy the diet they have been fed here. Once they are old enough you can gradually introduce the food you choose.
Your puppy is eating Blackhawk puppy (lamb & rice) dry food which you
will need to buy from a pet shop.
Soak the dry food in boiling water to make it soft and feed it to the puppy once it has cooled to a warm temperature. This is your puppy’s main meal that you will have to make twice a day until 16 weeks of age.
Also have a bowl of the dry food not soaked at all times for the puppy to pick on.
Your puppy will like chicken necks and meaty bones that you buy from your local butcher but only give your puppy one a week to start with.
Make Blackhawk puppy (lamb & rice) dry food available to your puppy at all times.
Water and dry food should always be available to your puppy but don't feed your dog solely on dry food.
Do not feed your puppy cow’s milk because you will give your puppy diarrhoea.
Always give your dog some variety once they are old enough like
- Meaty Bones
- Chicken Necks
- Fresh Meat
- Good Quality Canned Food
Meaty bones are an essential source of calcium and protein for dogs and they will happily chew them for hours. The bones have two benefits. They will occupy your dog when they are bored and they will do wonders for their dental health.
