Gradually switch. I raised a number of pups on science diet that was provided by the rescue. They did fine.

Jackie, if you see the other post, you will see that the pup is a Maltese...do you still think that just kibble is adequate?

We found 3 orphaned mix breed pups,many years ago,they vet guessed about,4-5 weeks, we bottle fed and worked on giving them softened high quality puppy formula food,they did really great...
We kept them in a home built box with a heating pad under it,not inside the box but under for warmth... Would put them in a sling,for bonding and warmth plus it stimulated them with environment changes...
Keeping them warm, hydrated and close contact,I think helped them alot...

If the pup is eating well, it is fine. If you need to moisten it or add canned, that's fine too.
