The best way to feed a shih tzu puppy is by giving them quality food. Yes, you heard that right! Quality food from the start will prevent health problems in your dog later on in life. The first three months are crucial for their growth and development, so make sure they’re getting all of the nutrients they need to grow big and strong. A good rule of thumb is feeding your pup as much as it would eat if it was free-fed (meaning left out). You should also make sure that you don’t overfeed your pup – this can lead to obesity or other health issues like pancreatitis.
If you have a shih tzu dog, then you know that they are just like their human counterparts when it comes to appetite. They want to eat all the time! For some reason, many people believe that because of their small size and thin hair, these dogs do not need as much food as other breeds of dogs. This is not true at all. Shih Tzus can be very active dogs that require more calories than most other breeds of dogs. It is important for them to get enough protein in order for them to maintain healthy muscles and bones while trimming down any excess weight on their bodies.
A shih tzu puppy needs a very specific diet to grow up healthy. It is important not to feed the pup any of the following: chocolate, grapes, onions, raisins, avocado or bread crusts. These things are toxic for dogs and can make them sick or even kill them. The pup also should be fed three times per day with smaller portions than an adult dog would eat.
When you have a new puppy, it can be difficult to know when they’re ready for adult food.
The first sign you should look for is a decrease in the amount of food they’re eating, no matter what type of pet food it may be. This will happen at different points depending on your puppy’s breed and size but usually after about five months old. Keep an eye out for this because puppies are naturally very hungry animals! When their appetite starts to dwindle even if they seem healthy otherwise, that means there’s something up with them and might require veterinary attention.
Another important milestone to watch out for is when he/she has stopped growing or hatching teeth – since these can provide some temporary relief from teething pain as well as help chew hard-textured foods like kibble more easily.
