Feeding Instructions: Due to toy/teacup puppy's small stomach size and high metabolisms, toy/teacup puppies need to eat more than once or twice a day. They need to eat every 2-3 hours for the first two weeks in your home until they become less nervous and more settled in on a daily feeding routine. After the first two weeks, depending on the size of the puppy they will
need to eat every 3-6 hours. The smaller the puppy the more frequently remembered food = energy and without the proper nutrition the puppy is highly susceptible to having hypoglycemia which we already informed you about in our contract.
Our recommendation — and the least complicated feeding schedule to implement is free feeding — meaning allowing the puppy to have access to dry food at all times! Free feeding means there is always dry food in the bowl which is readily accessible in its living area, and the puppy can get to it 24/7. That also means that if you are carrying the puppy around with you a lot, you need to allow it to eat at least once every few hours or more often. Puppies have a very short attention span and are easily distracted by new people, new surroundings and love to cuddle and play instead of eating so it's crucial you make sure they eat. They do not have good self-discipline to do so on their own always, so offering and having food available to them at all times is the best practice to keep them healthy, happy and FULL!
The most important rule to owning a toy / teacup is your puppy MUST EAT and on its regular schedule! You cannot just say: "Well he didn't eat this meal maybe I will try again later." "He's tired so 'III just let him sleep" "I can't make him eat” WRONG! If the puppy will not eat the dry food or turn up its nose then you must try other foods. We suggest boiled chicken or brown rice or chicken baby food/beef baby food. You may also try canned dog food and usually Cesar brand works best for us in the purple or pink package. If your puppy has missed a meal and is not wanting to eat then the next step is NUTRI CAL or Dyne. If your puppy has been asleep for more than three hours without a meal, wake him/her up to eat or give it Nutri Cal or Dyne. If ever in doubt give Nutri Cal or Dyne. It doesn't harm the puppy and it's always better to be safe than sorry! If you plan to take the puppy with you to work, travel or just to do daily errands then you must pack a bag with Nutri Cal or Dyne, food and water. When you take the puppy out for hours and it's not on its normal daily routine and feeding schedule, it's fun but it will also cause stress on her/his body, and they tend to get overly excited, overly stimulated and nervous. So not only are they burning more calories due to this they also don't want to eat. it's crucial that you always have a Nutri Cal in safe places for these times. Such as in your glove compartment, in your purse, in your desk at work. While out if the puppy isn't eating every 3/4 hours then you must give Nutri Cal or Dyne! You can purchase on Amazon or from your Local Vet
How to give Nutri Cal or Dyne: Put a dime size amount Nutri Cal or Dyne Syrup on your finger and most of the time the pups will lick it off your hand but, if not you must physically open their mouths and place it on their tongue, rub it on their mucus membranes, gums cheeks and allow them to swallow the rest, for them to get the nutrition they need to eliminate the possibility of hypoglycemia. Any signs of lethargy, vomiting, blood in stools, hyper salivation, disorientation, or
seizure it's imperative you give the puppy Nutri Cal or dyne every 15-20 minutes and get to the vet hospital immediately. If you ever get caught in an emergency without Nutri Cal or Dyne you can use Kara syrup or raw sugar. Honey is also an option but is risky as it does contain natural bacteria that can cause the puppy to get sick, but if this is the only option then use it as hypoglycemia is a life threatening emergency. Housing Info: We do suggest buying a puppy playpen so your puppy has a safe place to be when not being supervised. This also allows the puppy to get accustomed to where the potty pads will be in their new home. Set it up away from air vents or drafty areas. We suggest buying 2 so the puppy has a nice large area to play. You can connect them together and you can add their beds, food, water and puppy pads in there.
Sleeping/Rest/Outings: Toy/Teacup Puppies Sleep a lot and need their rest. It's important to let them take their naps during the day and not too much playtime, especially for the first two weeks. They like to take cat naps during the day and sometimes may only last 30 minutes or so but, it's an important part of their well-being and health. Do not take your puppy out immediately after bringing him home. Let him adjust to you and his new environment and keep them away from other dogs other than your own until they have finished all their vaccinations. That means not taking the puppy to public parks, pet stores, groomers or places other than your home or yard. At your vet trips keep your puppy in your arms and don't let him run around on the floor, as Vet hospitals are a source of deadly viruses and illnesses from other pets there, seeking treatment. Bring a blanket or towel with you to the Vet, ask them to clean the table off in front of you and put the blanket on the puppy on the table. Do not put the puppy directly on the bare table.
FEEDING YOUR NEW PUPPY
Royal Canin (small breed) dry Kibble - Petco
We like to leave the kibble out all day, small breeds tend to snack throughout the day since their stomachs are so small they need numerous small meals throughout day, so leaving the kibble out all day allows them to eat when they'd like!
On top of dry kibble, we give 3 meals: below are some of the foods you can incorporate Breakfast at 9am - scrambled eggs, baby food, plain yogurt
Lunch at 1pm - Boiled chicken, sweet potato
Dinner at 7pm - Wet Food, Baby Food, Chicken etc.
Feel free to change their diet and experiment with what your puppy enjoys best; these are just some ideas! Most important thing is that they eat!!
