When Your Foster Arrives
Foster Animals and Your Pets
Bottle babies need to be fed frequently, general rule of thumb is 1-2 hours per weeks of age. For example a 1 week old baby needs to be fed every 2 hours, a 3 week old baby should be fed every 3-4 hours, including overnight.
If you are interested in bottle feeding but have never done it before, please visit The Kitten Lady's website for information. Feeding puppies and kittens is fairly similar when they are under 4 weeks old.
Weaning can occur gradually around 4-5 weeks using canned food (mixed with warm water or puppy/kitten milk if needed), dry food soaked in warm water, or dry food mixed with canned food.
