Highlights of Going Home:

Do not change puppies food or give treats for the first week of adjusting. Puppies are under stress leaving their mama and siblings and effects each puppy differently. Not changing or adding food helps puppy.  If puppy gets loose stool after leaving that is normal for some puppies under stress. Get a large can of  100 % pure pumpkin and store in Tupperware in refrigerator offer puppy 1 tablespoon 3 times a day until gone. Pumpkin adds fiber, helps with inflammation and is very healthy.

 

*** When adding in treats do it modestly think of it as giving your child candy. When switching dog food, please consider a large breed puppy food for minimum of 12 months but if youd like to switch to a new food—switching should go slowly.

Dog Food Change -- if you would like to change dog food please follow this guide in switching:

75/25 for 3 days then if Good (no loose stool)

50/50 for three days then if Good (no loose stool)  

75/25 for three days then if Good (no loose stool)

100% new food *** at any point they get loose poo go back to the mix you were just doing and hold it for three more days then try again

  1. Puppy is teething like a baby freeze ice cubes 50/50 with low sodium broth offer as a treat. Put puppy toys in a zip lock and freeze and alternate giving back puppy the frozen cold toys throughout the day.

  2. Starting off on the right foot potty training: 1st 2-3 days at home  puppy should be on a leash with you when not in a kennel. Puppy is currently doggy door trained and has not had an accident in the house in weeks. Your new home they have no idea how to get out or how to tell you they need out. We recommend using Potty bells. Keeping them with you on a leash when they are not in their crate will stop accidents before they start. Take puppy out every two hours during the day to the exact same spot outside EXACTLY, a place out of human traffic, someplace you want them to choose long term. Bring them there say “potty or whatever”, absolutely no playing-- business only!! Praise them when they do the deed. Remove them from the area before playing. Puppy should be taken out when sniffing the ground, circling, whimpering, barking, after waking up, within 15 minutes of eating and drinking.

  3. Worming your puppy is important, one of the very best things you can do for the health of your puppy. Follow the worming schedule ---Buy the safeguard wormer for goats it is Fenbendazole exact same as Panacur C just much cheaper!

 

8 weeks, 10 weeks, 12 weeks- Safeguard liquid wormer for goats (fenbendazole) bought at feed supply store for 7 days. Basically, a week off between dosing.

 

 

Troncil Plus or Drontal Plus at 6 months, 12 months. Then twice a year for lifetime.

There are many different wormers, trick here, is make sure it contains praziquantel. I recommend worming with Troncil Plus which is generic Drontal.

  1. Puppy has been on a vaccination schedule we have given their first shots of  NeoPar and Neo Vac Da2 so puppy has the best foundation for going home. We stop where we do in our vaccination schedule to prevent OVER vaccination. When taking puppy home they are ready for their next shots from Your Vet. Your Vet will offer a 5 way or 6 way which is multiple vaccines at once. We encourage you to complete the puppy vaccine schedule and please try to be as on time with the vaccines and wormings as possible! Please be sparing with the quantity of vaccines given at one time. If you do the 5 way wait between that and the next vaccines. Research vaccines before giving them to your puppy to make an informed choice. Some things they want to vaccinate against will merely make your puppy ill say for example kennel cough but the side effects of certain vaccines could be very bad. Some dogs have allergies and run reactions to vaccine while others show no symptoms. Lepto vaccine is one we choose not to do because so many dogs have reacted to this vaccine. Do your research make informed choices. We vaccinate against those that kill--Parvo and Distemper. Wait until puppy is 6 months old for the Rabies vaccine and make sure puppy only receives rabies by itself on that day. Rabies is a very strong Vaccine.

 

Avoid multi dog areas until puppy is fully vaccinated and then wait two weeks after puppy receives final puppy vaccine series. No dog parks! No public places!
