How to Wean
With healthy, standard sized Pom puppies at the 4 week mark, the dam will begin to nurse less and the puppies - now walking and able to explore more - will have enough curiosity to investigate and try to eat other foods.
The adjustment of weaning a Pomeranian puppy from milk to dog food is a huge step. To try and prevent possible stomach upset, it is best to use the same food brand that has been being fed to the dam. Mix a quality canine milk replacer with this and blend well. You will want the consistency to resemble a thick soup.
Place this into a shallow dish that easily allows the puppy to reach it. He may poke his nose into it and lap a bit to check it out... and in most cases he will try some.
If not, take a small spoon (baby spoons work well) and encourage him to have small tastes. While young puppies should be free-fed (food is left out at all times) when you first begin weaning, it is often best to supervise a puppy and then remove the dish when he is done. If not, he may make quite a mess playing with it as much as eating it. Offer this solid-mushy paste food every couple of hours.
