Bringing home a new puppy is such a joyous event. To keep it as such, your new puppy will need special care and attention over the next several months.
One trip to the veterinarian does not ensure immunity from disease. The DHLP-P vaccinations require at least three doses done at four-week intervals and a Rabies vaccination is required by law by as soon as the puppy is old enough. This is usually around four months of age.
It is very common for puppies to cry the first night or two in a strange place. An old fashioned “ticking” clock or one of your dirty tee shirts will often settle the pup down to sleep. Others have found a small stuffed toy, a or even an old fashioned bottle to be affective as well.
Your puppy is eating Solid Gold Hundchen Flocken Puppy (lamb) Growth Formula for puppies. Petco sells this brand and it can be ordered online at http://www.solidgoldhealth.com We are providing you with enough food to allow a healthy switch to new food should you wish to do so.
Feed dry, your puppy is used to dry food, and food available at all times.
If you want to control the food, begin feeding 4 meals a day to start with, after about 2 or 3 weeks Feed 3 times a day for a puppy up to 3 months and twice a day for a puppy under 6 months. While the puppy is under 6 months old you can have food available at all times, when in doubt consult your veterinarian. Each puppy is different and has different needs. By controlling the puppy's feeding helps with housebreaking, as it provides consistency, and a schedule to follow. A normal size adult Pap should not eat more than ½ - 3/4 C of food a day. We normally do not feed Lola & Manni moistened food, as this can cause more tartar to build up on the teeth. The amount of food given with each meal should never be dictated by what is on the back of the puppy food bag. That is a good place to start, but many puppies need less than what is on the bag, and a few may need more. Adjust the amount fed to maintain your puppy at an optimal weight. Your veterinarian can help you determine the proper amount to feed. Remember to have water available with or immediately following the meal. Here’s a good rule of thumb: Offer the bowl of food, as long as the puppy is eating, leave the food down. (Usually 15 minutes at a time) when the puppy stops, or walks away, pick up the bowl and leave it out of reach until it is time for the next feeding.
One of the biggest complaints that veterinarians hear from dog owners, especially those with animals less than 18 months of age, is that they never eat enough. The owners feel the dog is not putting on weight or growing as fast as they think he should. They are tempted to somehow encourage their animals to eat more. Do not do it. The growth rates and appetites of young animals on a good quality food are primarily dictated by their genetics. Do not try to make your dog grow faster than he should or into something he is not. This will only cause problems. Artificially accelerated growth leads to bone and joint disorders. Feed them the amounts they want and let their bodies dictate their needs.
To change your puppy's diet, always do so gradually. Sudden changes in diet can cause digestive upsets so make sure you start your puppy out on the same food as he or she has been getting. If a change is to be made, space it out over the course of a week. The first two days feed 75% of the original food and 25% of the new. The next two or three days feed in 50/50 increments. Towards the end of the week switch to 75% new food and only 25% of the old and finally end by feeding only the new type of food.
If you don’t live in the same area and use the same water supply as us, it is recommended you get a gallon or so of water to switch over in the same manner as described above. Different levels or lack of chlorine, fluoride and other components can also cause upset stomachs.
NO COW MILK…NO MILK
It is a common misconception that puppies need milk. Cow's milk can cause problems Cow’s milk has the sugar lactose. Dogs do not have the enzyme lactase that is necessary to digest it. That is why they often develop diarrhea or softer stools when given it. Most humans produce this digestive enzyme. Those that do not are said to suffer from milk intolerances or allergies. When you see milk or milk by-products listed as ingredients in pet foods, lactose bacteria have been used to break down the sugar into easier digestible forms. Dogs do not need fresh milk.
Fresh water should be available at all times.
If your puppy shows signs of hypoglycemia…take the puppy to your vet. Our dogs have had no history of hypoglycemia, this is a relatively rare, and can be attributed to bacterial infection of some sort. For the health of your puppy if you observe any problems that cause you concern TALK TO YOUR VET! You can also contact us any time if you have questions, or minor concerns.
If your puppy doesn't eat, vomits, has diarrhea or appears weak, notify your veterinarian immediately.
Your puppy is teething. Provide “approved” items for the puppy to chew on. I recommend avoiding pressed, particle rawhide. Whole rawhide is ok, hooves, ears, nylabone, and other brand name teething bones are ok. Our dogs absolutely love Greenies. It’s good for keeping their breath nice, and satisfies a chewing desire.
Don't over handle your new puppy during the transition to its new home. The puppy is used to household noises such as vacuum cleaners, and television or stereo sounds, but transitioning to a new home and leaving its mother & siblings will cause some stress. We will provide a familiar toy for you to take with your puppy, and we suggest that if you crate-train (for housebreaking), put an article of clothing that you have worn (so that it has your scent on it) into the crate with the puppy. Expect that it might get chewed on and soiled, so pick the item accordingly.
For identification purposes we encourage you to have your new Puppy micro chipped, it may mean the difference of a quick recovery if they happen to become separated from you. There are microchip clinics at dog shows, kennel club meetings and most vets offer microchips as part of their services.
Please do not let your Papillon run loose even though he wants to be with you as much as possible. Please make sure that gates are latched when he is in your yard. Never leave your dog outside while you are gone. You have a beautiful elegant little dog and someone else might think so also. Do not leave your Papillon outside in extremes of cold or heat. Papillions are not able to stand long periods of extreme temperatures that could cause heatstroke or pneumonia.
Don’t leave your puppy alone in a car, even with the windows open, how hot is that vehicle when you come back to it? Like climbing into an oven, right? And you want to leave your Best Friend in there? Not even for a few minutes. Here are the boring statistics--but keep reading, because this info may keep you from loving your dog to death.
On an 85 degree day, the temperature inside your car, even with the windows open a bit, will climb to 102 degrees in 10 minutes! After half an hour, it will go up to 120 degrees or even higher! On a 90 degree day, temps in that car can top 160 degrees faster than you can walk around the block. We won't even talk about the back of a pickup truck, "in the fresh air," with no shade. (Poor puppy can burn its feet on hot metal, or plastic bed liners.
The most important need for your new puppy is an abundant amount of love and understanding from the family. By taking in the puppy, you have introduced a new family member to the house that can be with you for many, many years. He will be a source of great joy, comfort and companionship if given the opportunity to reach his full potential.
We would love to see photos of the puppy as he/she grows, feel free to email us with any questions & photo’s you would like to share with us. We love photos! With your permission we would love to add the photos to our website, so that when we have another litter, the prospective owners can see what beauties they have become.
Congratulations on your new family member.
