    DefaultEating habits of a new puppy

    Well Hi everyone, im Natalia. Im new to this new world of having a dog especially a lab. I found this puppy in the forest.. She was about 3 days of age, alone and dieing I rescued her and got her to the vet right away. Gave me medicine and everything. She has terrible congestion. She's about 4 weeks now and os better than ever. I had her on premium puppy milk replacer and I wanted to ask when to stop giving her the milk? Since she didn't have alot of milk from her mom.. She might need it longer

    Hi, and welcome to the forum! Wow! A puppy only 3 days old and you have nursed her and she's now 4 weeks old! That is amazing! You are literally her savior! I would ask the vet how long to give her the puppy formula. It would depend on her overall health. Is she still congested? Where are you located?

    Well she has no more congestion. He said to keep giving her milk with puppy chow inside it. He never told us to stop or to keep on going. She's in great shape he told us on her check up last week. Im in florida and she hatea going outside. She opened her eyes the first day I got her. She's very strong and she's changed my life completely.

    How can a 3 day old blind/deaf pup find it's way to the middle of a forest?

    If the story is true, then you have done an awesome job, and you deserve a hearty CONGRATULATIONS!

    Very odd story...I don't understand how a 3 day old puppy ended up in the "forest" of FL either.
    I hope it all works out for this puppy. I would definitely be asking your vet the question about the milk replacement. Good luck.

    Pup could have been tossed out I guess... They do have National Forests in Florida...I googled it.
