~~~Gruel Time For Molly’s Puppies~~~

The Boys

This evening’s meal was the first attempt at “solid” food for Molly’s litter…

Their eyes are almost completely open now…

The formula (just by itself) isn’t filling them up to where they feel happy & content with their full tummies…

Tube Feeding Apparatus

They can’t sink their newly emerging teeth into it…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~So It’s Gruel Time~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It was one of the easiest transition that we have ever had…….!

The Girls

The little boopers just dove right into the gruel with little to no outside assistance…….

…..by that I mean…..we didn’t even have to dunk their muzzles into the goop the first time to help them “find” it…….

…..I was so surprised…….

In the past we’ve had to hover their faces in a holding-pattern over their food dish…

Or we had to resort to making the gruel extra sloppy and use a big syringe to squirt it into their mouths…

Molly’s Puppy’s First Meal

But this passel of pooches learned immediately…….

…..albeit with a GREAT DEAL of MESS…….!!!

They LOVED their new found drippy/chunky/spongey formula…….

Molly Cleaning One Of Her Sons

…..and Mom (Molly) was called in to help clean up her tasty, sticky children…….

…..several of them literally swam across their feed pan…….

A Swimmer

…..it was a fun…..slippery…..first meal for the pups…

I’ll alternate the next few meal with the regularly, delivered formula (via syringe and tube)…

Molly Took Clean Up Very Seriously

…..that way I can be a little more confident that everyone is getting adequate nutrition inside them and not just smeared all over their outside…….
