PUPPY CARE TIPS
Be Prepared: before you bring your new puppy home, consider what you will need. Here are some suggestions: Crate, not too big but not too little; a lightweight harness and leash which should only be placed on your puppy while in your presence; shampoo designed for puppies (perhaps your particular breed) comb/brush; food/water dishes which will be short enough for your puppy to adequately eat and drink from; bottled water since water differs from one part of the country to the other; exercise pen provides a safe place for your puppy to play safely; toys that are durable and cannot be chewed apart; doggie toothbrush and toothpaste to maintain a healthy smile.
Recommended Puppy Food: Your puppy with come with a packet of food of the following combinations that he/she has been on, but any good puppy food that you and your vet chooses will work great as long as you gradually introduce him/her by adding some of the packet you receive with the puppy to the feed you have chosen. Our combination includes: NutriSource for Puppies Starter; NutriSource for Puppies; Taste of the Wild; Pro Pac for Puppies . WE ALWAYS KEEP ON HAND SOME FORM OF MICROBIOTIC to help stimulate the immune system and keep your puppy's health in tip-top shape, such as: Benebac or FasTrack (by Conklin - www. conklin.com) To find the puppy food that is available to you in your location go to: www.petfooddirect.com Please keep informed of the current news on the pet foods that are being recalled by going to http://menufoods.com/recall/product_dog.html or call: 1-866-895-2708 PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT NONE OF THE FOOD THAT WAS RECALLED WAS EVER ANY FOODS THAT OUR ADULTS OR PUPPIES WERE ON
NOTE: your puppy should always have feed and water set before him. With the smaller breeds, once a day offer a soft food like Pedigrees canned Puppy, Chicken Soup for Puppies by Diamond or a high quality of food source formulated for the high energy and nutritional need of your new puppy. I have a favorite *Meatball Recipe* which is wonderful for any puppy -- keeps them healthy and adds to their overall well-being and lustrious coat.
Puppies love to jump from couches, etc. but this can injure their knees. Discourage any type of jumping to protect their knees. Further, collars can cause collapsing trachea in small dogs--use a harness.
THIS IS MANDATORY FOR ALL NEW PUPPY OWNERS:
Puppy MUST be seen by your veterinarian within 48 hours of when you receive your puppy... It is very important for your puppy to have a follow up exam and vaccination/worming schedule to be set up for its first year of healthcare... Your veterinarian is a good source of information concerning a number of topics with regards to the newest member of your family. Make sure you discuss all your questions with your veterinarian, including any new virus or parasites that may be prone to your State or community in which you live....
It is Very Important to keep the puppy up-to-date on his vaccines. At your initial health check, have your veterinarian schedule future appointments to maintain a current vaccination schedule. Puppies are born with special immunities passed to them by their mother, but that last for a short period of time and ceases at different ages for different puppies.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Because of the stress of transition, we recommend that your puppy have at least 2 weeks to transition into its new home and environment with just you and your immediate family... the stress of transition may weaken its immunities, puppy is still susceptible to many known virus and disease, we suggest that you keep puppy with you in its new home ONLY
MEATBALLS from the Kitchen of Loyal, Loving & True
2# lean hamburger 2 eggs 2 cups oatmeal 1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup wheat germ oilPinch of garlic
Mix together and form into meatballs.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes (depends on size of your meatballs).
You can bag and freeze them and use them as you need them.
These are excellent when you have a finicky or picky eater --
a rehabilitating puppy -- or to add a little weight back on.
They'll bring a SMILE to your puppy's face and add luster to its beautiful coat.
NUVET: As a Professional Dog Breeder, animal health is my top priority. That's why I enthusiastically recommend NuVet Plus immune system builder to all of my customers. Simply put, it is the best nutritional supplement available today. NuVet Plus provides optimal health and strong immune systems. A strong immune system will protect them from environmental and food toxins such as backyard pesticides, hormones, toxic formaldehyde in furniture and carpeting. NuVet Plus also supports proper development as well as a beautiful skin and coat. This is NOT just a vitamin, it's an immune system builder with a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids and high-potency antioxidants. That's why it works so well through all 3 stages of a dog's life:
Puppies: fills the immunity gap all puppies experience. Shortly after birth maternal antibody effectiveness is greatly reduced. By 8 weeks your puppy's immune system is at a vulnerable point. Once in their new home, the immune system is weakened by the stress of adoption and exposure to novel bacteria and viruses in their environment. This is also when the vaccine series is started. Vaccines are most effective if the immune system can respond properly. Staring NuVet Plus is important to helping your puppy grow into a healthy adult.
Dogs in their prime: Provides the necessary antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals to sustain peak performance in the prime of their lives.
For Older dogs: helps provide the nutritional needs to live long, happy, and productive lives in their senior years.
I highly recommend NuVet Plus to keep you pet on the path to perfect health!! It's not available in stores, and is only available to the general public with an order code from an authorized pet professional.
For your convenience: you may order directly from the manufacturer by calling 800 - 474-7044 and using Order Code 87522, or ordering online at www.nuvet.com/87522. You can also save an additional 15% and assure you never run out of NuVet by choosing the "Autoship" option at checkout.
