Ok so I bought him some goats milk from the grocery store and he is eating more and more. My problem is with the kibble. I tried to soak it in the milk (it was cold, maybe thats the problem) and it doesn't soak up the kibble.

I have him eating a slur of: canned puppy food and kibble soaked in the milk. He LOVES the milk, so it is working...do you heat the milk up before letting it soak with the kibble? Also how long should it take. The puppy food I got him takes forever to soak anything up. Its good kibble too.

ya sometimes i smash the kibble up in a ziplock bag first and then soak in warm milk , seems to help . I think I had to soak atleast 15-20 minutes before hand, it does take a bit. but within the next couple weeks here he should be able to be weened onto unsoaked kibble so it isnt for too long.

Thank you very much for the help! He is now eating decently, I think the goat milk was a deal breaker for him. I can't wait till hes 3 months so he can eat normally.

By 8 weeks he should be able to eat normal kibble , all ours did by that age. You can keep on with the goats milk if you want, we always stopped at 8 weeks.

Yea I probably will stop with the milk asap. I read that the calcium in the milk can causes growth spurts in dogs, and I don't know how healthy that would be. I am just so relieved that he is eating. He got over his litter mate and mom pretty fast...he runs into my lap and falls asleep. I took a nap next to him and he woke me up by licking my face.
