Health Q & A

What do I feed my new puppy?

Your new puppy has been eating dry food for about two weeks now. It is important that a change in diet for your puppy occur gradually in order to avoid upset stomach or diarrhea. Therefore, you will receive a small bag of puppy food when you take your puppy home.

 

What about shots?

Your puppy will have his/her first shots before going home with you. At six weeks of age, we administer Nobivac-Canine 1(Galaxy DA2PPv) which is for the prevention of Distemper, Hepatitis, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza and Parovirus. We encouarge new puppy owners to schedule an appointment with your vet prior to picking up your puppy.

 

Do you worm your puppies?

Absolutely! All puppies are treated with Strongid wormer at 2 weeks of age, and at 4 weeks and 6 weeks they are give a 3 day regimen of Panacur.

 

Do you treat for parasites?

Most defintely! All pups will be given a five day regimen of Albon at the age of 4 weeks and 6 weeks.

 

Can we visit the kennel and/or puppies?

Visits to our kennel are allowed with a scheduled appointment only. If we have newborn puppies, you will only be allowed a quick peak at them. Puppies cannot be held by anyone visiting the kennel until they are 5 weeks old and we ask that you do not visit other kennels on the day you plan to visit ours. We do everything possible to insure that we have happy, healthy puppies for you to take home with you. If you plan to visit our kennel when we have young puppies, please let us know how many people are planning to visit. We prefer to keep the number to no more than 4 at one time.

When can I take my puppy home?

Your puppy will be ready to go to his/her new home at the age of 7 weeks.
