He looks to be about 5 weeks old to me. Old enough to be off a bottle and fed 4-6 meals per day. Keep doing what you have been doing with moistening the food. He looks nice and solid so he is eating well.

I actually have no experience with a pup that age, but there are several people on here that will be a big help. I think you need Kari.

I agree, he looks about 5 weeks old. We got Pheona at 4 weeks (way to early). We fed her puppy milk replacement for the first week followed by a combination of puppy milk & puppy milk soaked kibble, along with offering her water. I did about 6 feedings a day including some at night time for the first few weeks. I'd cuddle with her a lot as well as keep her wrapped with a blanket to keep her warm as she was so tiny. She was 2 pounds at her first vet visit (she was 6 weeks) she weighed 2 pounds. She was also the runt of the litter. Like I have told the others, I took care of her, I got to hear her first bark, saw the first tail wag. Her & I have a bond like no one would believe.

Puppies that young dont get heartworms. You do need to start him on preventive when you vet gives the go ahead. Good luck with the little guy.
