It should be feeding off it’s mom until a few weeks old, at least if youwant a healthier dog. go to the petstore and get the puppy formula. It is like baby formula but made for puppies. I’m sure you want a healthy happy dog. Where is momma dog?

  1. yes

  2. Diane D says:

    Get the puppy version of Similac from your vet or from a pet store!

  3. No. You need to get the formula that is made for puppies to make sure they get enough vitamins and minerals. Why are you getting it as a newborn.

  4. You can go to petco or your vet & buy powdered or liqiud puppy milk that suits the puppies needs. Human babies have different needs than a puppy so I wouldn't use human formula.

  5. Gmedina says:

    Yes its true, but start by making it a little watery their stomache might not take it at first they might have runs.

  6. I wouldn't feed that stuff to my kids. Get puppy formula at vet. Puppy's should be left with 'mom' until they can eat food on their own at about 8-10 weeks

  7. first of all….why are you getting a newborn pitt. pups need to be with their moms for about 9-10 weeks.
    second..id ask a vet, there are things in human foods that dogs/cats/etc. Cannot digest or are poisonous.

  8. Yes, just watch the puppies feces and if it gets runny that means it needs to be diluted……I love pits!! Send me a pic, I wanna see!!! PLEASE!
