What can i feed my 26 days old Cocker Spaniel?

I've got a 26days old American Cocker Spaniel,Mustard!The breeder has advised to give him 'cerelac' 4-5times a day in small amounts. and he's doing good with that so far. just wanted to know what more can be given to him,what points to keep in mind while nurturing him,coz he's such a tiny baby!

milk can be given but with water added,otherwise cerelac is as good as it gets.but he will not like it for a long time,i guess after 45-50 days.then you can shift to milk....curd can also be given.

actually since thepup is soooo small, no matter whatever u feed him it will be immuno deficient for life.

you should study BEFORE getting a pup.Hopelessly you are playing with a life.You got the puppy too late. he is a old stock..26 days old.. should get a pup when born..first day fresh stock......sic

As u can see you have blundered...the best suggestion is that if u can return it to its mom and take it back when it is at least 40-45days old!!!

> Do NOT give milk...it causes stomach upset. Give curd made at home, from double toned milk. [Not recommended now].
> Give light meals. Dont feed much at one time. Min. 6 meals a day is recommended.
> You can interchange between Neslac and cerelac (Stage 1, wheat/rice) between meals.
> Mixture solution should not be very concentrated.
> No medicines are recommended right now but start as early as it is 35days old (At least A-Z multivitamin & multimineral drops). [You can keep Neopeptine Drops as an emergency measure]
> Protect from cold and take good care of it!!

I just forgot 1 thing, I will tell you when i remember.

Visit a vet when its 35-40days old.

[Expert comments will help you better than mine].

my best advice for you pls leave him with his mother and take him after 45days....50 days will be better.....pls dont feed milk and any other things just return him ASAP

no point of returning now as mother might not accept the back. Simply give Cerelac mixed with warm water/milk about 6 times a day. 2 scoops per meal. Keep this for 2 weeks. Then shift to puppy starter of Eukanuba. Avoid Royal canin. give 4 times a day. Deworm the pup using Nemocid. 2.5 ml 2 times a day for 2 day. repeat after 2 weeks. A bit of hard work but will pay in long run. all the best

@Anil..m taking care of it to the best to my knowldge,keepin him warm,under a continuously lit 60w bulb (thts how it was kept by the owner),covered in cotton mattress. apparently,it was under a lactating Pug,who had got her own litter around same time. he's doing fine with cerelac with warm water 5times a day. m giving him 2drops twice a day of liver tonic(Livgivan,ayurvedic drops for pets) and VenGro each (as informd by the owner/breeder).Milk is strictly NO - NO,tht m aware..m ready for the hard work,coz i fell in love with him whn i first handled him.
