How much water should i give my 8 week old puppy?

Best answers

Not surprisingly, there is no exact amount as to how much a puppy should be drinking on a daily basis.

However, a good rule to go by on days with minimal activity is an ounce of water per pound of body weight.

Example: An eight pound puppy should drink, at minimum, eight ounces of water every day.
