hi guys new here I recently became a new mommy to two pug puppies
I need to switch their food .but am having such a hard time trying to figure out the best food for their growth I have one fawn baby girl 11weeks which weighs like 5 pounds and a Runt of the little baby boy who weighs 1.6 lbs im desperate to make him gain some weight.
He is very active eats every 4 he's three times a day but I just want him to get as much as he can from a good food any tips ...? Thank you all
Hello and welcome to you all
There are many very experienced and knowledgeable people here who will give you excellent advice, I'm sure. Wow, 1.6 lbs is 0.7 of a kg - I can't imagine such a tiny baby! But as I say, I'm sure you will receive some good tips on how to nourish such a growing pup.
All the best and would love to see some pictures

He's so adorable. Well, they both are.
Adding scrambled egg to his food might help. Maybe some salmon or sardines? Go slow with introducing any food additions so as not to give him an upset tummy. Because he is so small you may be better off feeding him several small meals per day rather than less frequent larger ones. Less strain on his tiny stomach. Also you need to ensure that his weight gain is proportionate to his size.

They are darling! Pick the best food you can afford. I agree he needs smaller more frequent meals. Pugs come in all sizes and he may never be close to your female in size.

Thanks Ladies yes hes ALWAYS HUNGRY I just get scared of over feeding
usually just give him a tbsp of kibbles w some wet food. I recently bought them
some Blue Buffalo Wilderness but have been soo scared to try it after
reading soo many horrible things about it .
Talos was about that size. Is he gaining weight normally, aside from being tiny? Has the vet given him a clean bill of health? Is he skinny? If he is gaining weight, eating well, healthy and doesn't have bones sticking out, he may just be small. Feeding him too much will only make him fat.
