Puppy Love and Kibble

The puppies are continuing to thrive. I trimmed all of their toe nails yesterday. That was a lot of toenails! They are really enjoying playtime in the screened room in the morning before it gets too hot. Mama Ruby has been teaching them how to socialize and play nice with one another.

Most of them seem to have the hang of drinking from both the water fountain and the water bowl at this stage. Also, I have been rotating dry food. None of them has gotten an upset stomach from any of the kibble I’ve included in the rotation. So far I’ve tried Royal Canin Puppy x-small, Royal Canin Shih Tzu, Vital Essentials Freeze Dried Nibs all flavors, Stella and Chewy’s Meal Mixers Super Beef, Instinct Be Natural real chicken and brown rice puppy, The Honest Kitchen whole grain chicken and oat recipe puppy blend. Their favorites in order are Stella and Chewy’s, Vital Essentials, Royal Canin x-small puppy, Royal Canin Shih Tzu Puppy.

I also give Vital Fresh Pet grain free Turkey. They love it! It’s the one you can find at Petco or Petsmart. It has spinach and blueberries in it. I give that twice a day. I steer away from any food containing legumes. Also, no matter what food you decide to feed them, make sure it’s for puppies or all life stages until they reach adulthood.
