How do I know when to start chihuahua puppies on solid food?


Answer by  Molae06 (1467)

Once the puppies are six weeks old start feeding mama around them with solid food mixed with water. The water will cause the solid food to become soft enough for the puppies to chew on. After two weeks offer solid food by itself, if the puppies seem to have trouble offer wet food for a week, then try solid again.

Around 6 weeks you can start to offer you puppy some dry food. Mix it with a small amount of water just to moisten the chunks or you could buy a kind that is already moist. Once the puppy gets bigger you can stop adding water. Dry, hard food is actually good for the puppy for it's teeth.

You can start feeding chihuahua puppies solid food around food weeks. One way to interest them in the solid food would be to include a little baby food as this would soften the solid food and be more similar to the milk they are accustomed to.
