Why should newborn puppies eat Weaning Paste or Follow-On Paste?

Written 5 months ago
When puppies are about 3 weeks old, they would start needing to eat their first taste of solid food as a simple paste - just finely ground chicken and bone - which is easier on their little mouths and gentler on the tummies. But very quickly they would need the full nutrition of a balanced diet or the additional needs of growing pups puts too much of a strain on their mum (especially with big litters). 

When you want to give your puppies the best start in life at 3-5 weeks old, feed our PUPPY POWER Weaning Paste. Handmade in the heart of Wiltshire using 100% raw chicken carcasses, this paste is super easy to feed and is the best supplement for a mother’s milk.

When they are between 5-8 weeks old, we would recommend our PUPPY POWER Follow-On Paste as it's a super healthy and convenient meal to feed growing pups and will help to prepare them to move on to our adult raw food. 

If you have a small litter, so 2-4 for example, you can get away with staying on the weaning for an extra week.
