What puppy food do you plan on feeding and when do you expect to wean them? Young puppies are on a rapidly changing feeding curve, as is the bitch while she is nursing them (she's eating for herself, and to produce the milk calories necessary to maintain growth for all six pups as their weight changes during the first 8 weeks). I would expect the pups to be nursing for the first 8 weeks.
