I have 4 puppies still sucking on Maltese mommy for milk. They are 4 weeks
old now. Anyone knows when I should start them on solid? They are going to
their new homes in two weeks. I want to at least introduce to them. And if
I should, what should I feed them?

You should leave them with mommy until 9 weeks of age. In fact many states
have legislated that puppies shall NOT be sold before nine weeks so that
they get full litter/dog socialization and it prevents future issues. I
start solid foods at age two weeks. Breed maturity rates vary, so your
mileage will also vary.

6 weeks is too early - should be at least 8 weeks. This gives them time to
socialise with their litter mates and I believe it gives them a better start
in life.

HOWEDY diddler,

You're full of crap, diddler.

Scott & Fuller and The Amazing Puppy
Wizard SEZ pups belong in their new
HOWESES at six weeks.

You mental cases think the Federal
interstate shippin regulations
restricting shippin pups pryor to
8 weeks of age has to do with apupriate
breeding practices.

You're INSANE.

I think the earlier (diddy) minimum age of 9 weeks was better.

There are none better equipped than the mother to teach them what they need
right now.

It most definitely does give them a better start, and the benefits of that
time shouldn't be withdrawn lightly.

I could feel my face light up, when I read that! Diddy, could you post
that list of states, or where to find it, please? I hope TN is on that
list, because it's definitely something to be proud of. Hmmm, I wonder
if that law will apply to animal shelters, too?

Knowing some of our ridiculous laws, it's probably fine to kill a puppy
under nine weeks, but illegal to adopt it out.
When I die, I want to go where dogs go!

Sorry Michael. I know Ohio Law says 9 weeks.
I used to have a list of what states had what. But considering it didn't
apply to me, I lost it, and have no idea where I got it.
