Hi....At 6 around weeks the pup should be off mother's milk. One way to check the odor is to take some from the mothers milk from her and smell it, if it is sour then it is really time for the pup to be off of her milk.

The sour odor will leave the pup in time with food changes. Also ask your vet to see what he/she tells you to put your mind at ease.

Let us know if you bring this little one home.
