    Default Kong filler and puppies?

    Hi - I am sorry if this has been posted elsewhere. I saw many posts for kong fillers for full grown cavs but wondered what was safe for puppies? I will be bringing home my 10 week old next week and would love to be able to fill his kong with peanut butter or cream cheese but wanted to know everyone's thoughts for a puppy that young.

    Thanks in advance,
    Pam (and Maxwell)

    Peanut butter and cream cheese are both very high in fat and short so should only be used in moderation for adults and puppies.


    There are lots of good idea for filling a Kong in Rupert 's fund recipe book, you can get it here http://www.cavaliertalk.com/forums/s...pe-book-ORDERS!!
    You can use one to give all puppy 's meals - dry or raw. Do also have a look at Ian Dunbar 's puppy books (free to download)

    I have found that many cavalier's, especially pups, have sensitive tummies. I would check with the breeder to see what the puppy has been eating and start with that. If you decide to change the food, gradually introduce it. Once the pup has a diet that agrees with him/her, only then would I even start to introduce new foods, including snacks/treats.

    Maxwell is adorable! Best of luck with him.

    If you have a dry dog food that you are feeding,,, you can fill it with that. I fill Sophie's Kong toy with dry kibble, and add one of the Kong biscuits as a "stopper" http://www.kongcompany.com/products/...-liver-snacks/ so the kibble doesn't fall out. Somehow, she gets it all out while the 'stopper' is still in there. Gives her a challenge and she loves it.

    I feed Lady's kibble in the kong wobbler every morning. Also, northern biscuits fit perfectly snug into the regular kong without making a mess like peanut butter does. http://www.northernbiscuit.ca/ I usually break them in half and put half in each girl's kong before I head to work.

    you can put in canned pumpkin or sweet potatoe and freeze it. high in fiber, low in calories, and easy on the tummy.
