1、 Steps for Feeding Puppies
Before feeding puppies, it is necessary to prepare a dog food and water basin, as well as a comfortable and clean kennel, to provide sufficient food and water for the dog.
Follow dietary habits: The dietary habits of young dogs are different from those of adult dogs, and they need to follow the principle of eating fewer and more meals. They should be fed 3-5 times a day, and the amount of food should not be too much each time. The amount of feeding for a puppy should be calculated based on factors such as age, weight, and activity. Usually, puppies need to feed 2% to 4% of their body weight every day.
Choose appropriate dog food: The digestive system of young dogs is not yet fully developed, so it is necessary to choose foods that are easy to digest and rich in nutrients. Common puppy foods include dog food, canned dog food, nutritional creams, etc. Choose dog food specifically designed for puppies to ensure they receive sufficient nutrition and energy. According to the age and weight of the dog, feed according to the instructions on the dog food packaging.
Observing the health status of dogs: During the process of feeding young dogs, it is necessary to closely observe their health status, including mental state, appetite, excretion, etc. If there are any abnormalities, consult the veterinarian in a timely manner.

Maintain cleanliness and hygiene: During the process of feeding young dogs, it is necessary to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of the dog’s food and water basins to avoid bacterial growth and infection.
Regular veterinary examination is necessary during the process of feeding young dogs to ensure their health and good development.
