Japanese Spitz’s feeding method and identification selection.
Japanese Spitz feeding method
The first 30 days after birth are mainly based on breast milk.
After 3 weeks of birth, the puppies start to grow teeth. In addition to feeding it with dog milk, a little weaning food should be added. The weaning period is the most critical period in the development of a puppy, and we must prevent it from malnutrition. There are special weaning dog foods on the market. You can also add some boiled water or dog milk to the puppy dog food to make softer dog food, which is convenient and nutritious. The number of feedings varies depending on the individual differences of the weaned puppies, and feeding 4 to 6 times a day is the most appropriate. The size of the weaning food should be small so that it is easy to digest.
