Feed Cerelac/puppy milk if pup is less than 45 days old. After that Buy Puppy Starter or Mother and Pup.

Introduce Starter (Royal Canin /Drools/ Pedigree : Mother & Pup) to the pup by adding a few in the milk powder itself. Overtime increase the quantity of Starter and reduce Milk Powder, replacing finally.

To Feed Starter Add it In Hot water. Put a Handful. Wait for it to be soft and warm. Then mash and give. Soupy form.
