Didn't you already go through this with another dog? Now you have two more puppies?

uhh, yes, didn't you, OP, JUST post that your dog who wants to attack children (please tell me these aren't the offspring of that dog) is eating nothing but boiled eggs because you can't afford dog food?

I'm extremely confused as to why someone who doesn't know what they're doing with one dog and can't afford dog food has two, 4 week old puppies, and clearly doesn't know what to do with them either. Why are we feeding 4 week old puppies chicken and boiled eggs? Is that ALL they're eating? If not, what else are they eating? And you mentioned milk, is this COW milk you're giving them?

Is this a troll? If not, yes, those puppies need to go to a vet. They should also be turned over so that they can be placed into responsible homes.

We talked to a veterinarian and they said that they have to reach 6 weeks old before they can eat puppy food.. No, its not the offspring of the my dog that attacked an old lady.. We bought yesterday 2 new puppies which were 4 weeks old.. We decided to buy 2 puppies so that the other dog have playmates.. Actually, the other one were owned by my sister.. I decided to give them some chicken because i feel sorry for them that they will only drink milk.. No, this is not a troll.. I will post their pictures tomorrow..

Four week old puppies are far far too young to be away from their mother. Are you in the states? In most states, if not all, it is ILLEGAL to sell puppies of a certain age because they are FAR TOO YOUNG TO BE AWAY FROM THEIR MOTHER.

Two puppies is generally a bad idea.

If your vet told you they have to be six weeks before they can eat puppy food why on earth would you think they should eat chicken?? They aren't old enough.
Take them to the vet immediately.
You shouldn't have these puppies.

I'm a breeder, and if you actually called a vet to begin with and aren't just pulling information out of some orifice, the vet is full of crap. The puppies need to be WEANED, but most breeders START weaning at 3-4 weeks and puppies are on solid food by 6 weeks.

WHAT kind of milk are you giving them? What ELSE are they getting aside from this milk and how often?

You're going to kill these puppies if you're not feeding them correctly, puppies that young are not nearly as tolerant as adult dogs to poor feeding! If you don't know how to take care of puppies that young, please give them to the humane society or someone who DOES.

Right. You do know that this forum allows members to view past posts, don't you?

Four weeks is much, much too young to take them home. And a difficult age to deal with too. My suggestion would be to take them to a rescue, or return them to the mother at least, and pick them up in a month when they are actually ready to come home. Anything else is sounding just bad as far as the 'advice' you're getting and the mixed stories. Most breeders do start to wean at that age with puppy food, but the pups still nurse on mom for a while too and learn important social skills from her as well. At this rate you are going to end up with two more dogs with dog issues, if they make it.

Hopefully you're referring to the "advice" from the vet, though it doesn't sound like it. far as I've seen, nobody here has posted any bad advice. At all.

Which is true, but I made the very logical and reasonable assumption that whoever this person bought these two puppies from is not going to take them back, when they were so hot to offload their pup$forbuck$ at 4 weeks old to begin with.

I stated that breeders start to wean that young, meaning that puppies are most certainly not required to drink only milk (I still want to know what kind of milk the OP is feeding to these puppies) at that age, not that they wouldn't normally be getting milk from their dam as well, nor can they "not have solid food" until 6 weeks.
