Three Prepautions for Soaking the Puppy Dog Food Three Prepautions for Soaking the Puppy Dog Food

Should You Soak Kibble for Puppies?

In general, puppies under 3 months old need to be soaked or semi hard fed, because the intestines and stomach of puppies at this stage are not fully developed and their digestion and absorption functions are not good. The soaked dog food can make it easier for puppies to eat and digest.

We know that for recently weaned pups, it's preferable to soak the dog's food to the softened condition, but what should we attention when soaking puppy food? In general, the following three points should be considered of soaking puppy food in water.

Soaking Dog Food in Warm Water

Water temperature: about 40-60 degrees lukewarm water. However, it must be pre-boiled and then chilled lukewarm water (to prevent the loss of nutrients in puppy dog food due to boiling water, and hot water can easily scald dogs).

The Amount of Water When Soaking Puppy Food

The amount of water: the baked fresh dog food can only be absorbed by the water, therefore the puppy dog food after soaking can only be absorbed by the water. So you don't have to waste water by pouring it out so as to lose some of the nourishment.

How Long do You Soak Puppy Food in Water?

Time: soak until the puppy dog food has spread (softened); the soaking time will vary depending on the solubility of the dog's food. Usually 60 degrees warm water is needed, and 20 minutes will be enough. At that time, the water temperature is about 30 degrees, and you are ready to feed the puppy.

When to Stop Soaking Dry Food for Puppies?

For dogs more than 3 months old, there is no need to soak dog food for them, because at this time, dogs have entered the molar period, and their teeth feel itchy, so they like hard food, which can be used to grind their teeth. Of course, it's better to buy some tooth grinding toys or healthy dog treats in bulk, and the effect of tooth grinding is better.
