We just got our new addition 4 days ago. He is a miniature dachshund. He just turned six weeks old. I wanted to know what kind of puppy food is the best to use and also how much he should eat. He is scheduled for a vet appointment on Wednesday but I was interested in knowing what some of you recommend. He doesn't seem like he is hardly drinking anything is that normal? I would appreciate any type of input anyone can give us.Thanks
Six weeks old seems a litle young to be leaving its littermates. What brand food did the breeder feed the puppy? I would feed him the same food and if you want to try a new food, do it very gradually. I would recommend sticking to the same food as what he is use to as you have only had him for 4 days, once he gets adjusted to his name home and started in a schedule, maybe consider gradually switching his food.
There is a great sticky on this forum about dog food. I learned a lot from it and would trust it over anything the average vet recommends. If your vet sells Science Diet, that is more than likely what he'll recommend. Seems like a conflict of interest huh?
