Shar-pei food

We are getting two Shar-pei female puppies who will be eight weeks on arrival, what would you recommend we feed them and should part of the diet include full cream milk.
Thank you

By 8 weeks they will probably be weaned and can eat puppy food. Use a premium brand puppy food and if the food type has stages use them as the pups grow. Feed according to the instructions on the container. They will need their daily requirements divided into 4 or 5 meals throughout the day. Introducing tooth brushing while still pups is essential. (For all pets not just Shar-peis.)

Hi there Pat!

A good quality puppy-food available from your Vet is fully balanced and will cater to all their needs. And no, it doesn't have to include full cream milk. Ask the breeder what they are currently eating - and if it is a good quality food - why not continue with that?
At the end of the day your Vet will be the best person too advise you as he/she will be able to see the puppies and prescribe the best for them.

Good luck!
