    A puppy should stay with it’s mother and sibs till 8-12 weeks. Consult a veterinarian, if you don’t believe me, or the pup is motherless. Best of luck.
    Survival at that age (without a mother) if possible, would require the expertise of a veterinarian.

    Hi Lorie D-

    Do you mean that you want to start feeding the pup solid food in addition to nursing, or that you are actually taking it away from it’s mother?

    I wouldn’t expect a 3 week old puppy to be able to stand or eat on it’s own. I hope this was a typo.
    Have you consulted a veterinarian?

    Why don’t you go for dog food suppliers. They have good knowledge about what food should be given to dogs. They know what amount of supplements should be added to the dogs food.
