Puppies need to be monitored closely the first
few days in their new home to make sure they are
eating and drinking properly.
If your puppy stops eating or is just nibbling, you
need to be prepared to prevent hypoglycemia.
Having some baby food on hand (Gerber strained meat,
chicken, veal or lamb), is something most all puppies will
eat. If they won't eat the baby food, we suggest you get
some Nutri-Cal (which can be purchased at your local pet
store or at your vet's office) this is very helpful.
Follow the directions on the tube, we also
recommend you call your veterinarian.
Feed your puppy quality food made for puppies and not
adult dog food. Puppy food is made to keep your puppy
happy and healthy. It will also keep your puppy looking
good, maintaining the health of their coat and teeth.
We also suggest you don't change your puppy food or
eating habits started by your breeder, during the first few
weeks. Any changes made should be done over a gradual
amount of time to prevent diarrhea and a upset digestive
system. Your breeder should give you directions
as to how this process needs to be done.
