How do I make it soft for 4 week old puppies?
Answer by ChewyAug 19, 2022
Puppies can start to eat dry kibbles when weaning, which begins at around four or five weeks. But to make them easier for very small puppies to eat and digest, it's best to soften them with water initially.

Love This For Pregnant Mom

My little momma loves this food. It's in super tiny pieces so she can eat a few here and a few there when she needs a boost and her beautiful boys are fat and healthy on day 3.

First Ingredient "Chicken Biproducts"

Came recommended by an online veterinarian. Shocked at the primary ingredient was "chicken biproducts". Switching to Hills Science with primary ingredient is chicken meal.

Extra small size of kibble

Love this bag due to the size of kibble which is very tiny. I have rescue toothless Yorkies that will only eat this. Due to the 15lb being temporary out of stock, had to look for other options. I was able to find the purina pro plan toy breed puppy which is almost the same size. Will be back to royal when is back in stock.
