[quote name='[email protected]']is it ok to feed my 1 month old shih tzu milk? and if yes is soya milk good?[/quote]

thats a great question! one most would think of as pure common sense, although that question was at the top of your list I have so much info to share, first of all sure milk is good. the bigger question would be what your willing to spend on your puppy? if its not an issue than go ahead and pick up at a health food store!:fadein: organic milk its about $3 for a half gallon.

best of luck.

Hello sosexxetrini :)

I would say there are a lot better things that you can be feeding a puppy. Milk is not natural for a dog. Yoghurt has calcium like milk, but it is more easily digested, and contains pro biotics. Cheese makes a good training treat in small amounts.

Soy milk is not good for dogs, for starters, soy binds to other nutrients which can lead to a malnourished pup. Also, it is not natural (even more so than milk) and contains oestrogen, not good to be feeding to a pup!

One month old, did you breed it yourself? Or has the breeder sold it to you at 4 or 5 weeks of age? At this age it should still be with its mother and litter mates. If you have bought it and cannot return it to the breeder (until it is at least 8 - 10 weeks old) you really must make sure you enrol it in puppy pre school to ensure it gets the required social skill to get it through a happy life :)

:lol:I somewhat agree with this Aroura":fadein:

I picked out organic milk not soy " Organik milk it is best for puppies and it is not that expensive to feed your pup" moreover a pup really needs a probiotic blend of good supplements to go with the milk as well," by all means see this web site [URL="http://www.everlifeanimalhealth.com/"]Animal Health Supplements[/URL] on probiotics you will be amazed of the quality they add in to their pet products.

I use them for all my puppies Im a breeder so I make sure they get the best of their young lives once the pup hits about 5 months you can stop the products they will have been updated enough with probiotics.

Aroura what school did you send your pup too???

Yes pro biotics are good to add to the diet, I just buy the human ones and give them to the doggies, to be honest they aren't real fans of yoghurt so this works better!

I live in Australia, so probably not a school you've heard of! Unfortunately I couldn't get Chino into Puppy Pre School - He missed the boat, as he was ten weeks old when I got him and they'd already started a course (even though I knew all the dog training, I just needed him to get the socialisation - But by the time they actually returned my call 3 weeks later I'd missed the course!). He's started training now though, and just on time - He wasn't quite sure how to react to the other dogs at first, but quickly caught on!

I didn't realise how long ago the initial post was. What happened here? When I posted here years ago it was always a busy place!

Looks good, well referenced. Good website, I'm impressed :)

Nothing I would buy though, got everything I need here is Aus :)

I like to buy human products, for the same reason I don't buy dog food. Personal preference.
