We usually feed Purina puppy chow, along with canned Pedigree Puppy and goats milk. First place ½ of a cup of dry food in the bowl, then add about ¼ of a cup of warm water and wait till dry food is soaked, Or feed it to them dry. Then 3-4 tablespoons of canned food in a separate bowl. You need to feed this food every morning and night until he/she reaches 6 months (for toy and t-cup size puppies, you have to leave the food out at all times). Then at one year you can leave the food out all times or you can start feeding twice daily.
The puppy needs vitamin and calcium in his/her body when he/she is a baby. So you have to give Nutri-cal or Nutri-stat by mouth 2 times a day or as needed. Do not over do it.
Always make sure your puppy is current on his/her vaccinations throughout his lifetime. A record of the vaccinations we have given, will be on the bill of sale,
Consult your vet for all the de-worming and shots they recommend. Do not give the Leptospira shot to puppies and dogs under 5 LBs. If ever your puppy is not his normal self, please DO NOT give vaccines or worm medicine at this condition. If he/she has loose stools without his diet being changed or if he just doesn’t seem right to you, please immediately call us first and take him to the vet.
Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is a disorder that occurs mainly in toy breeds between 5 and 12 weeks of age. A hypoglycemia attack is often precipitated by stress and can occur without warning. It is a real threat to tiny puppies, watch for your puppy to become tired or droopy. The first signs are listlessness, depression, and muscular weakness.
If your puppy has any symptoms of hypoglycemia, you must give Nutri-cal, Nutri-star, honey or syrup quickly. It will put the blood sugar level close to normal. You have to keep puppy in a warm place and don’t let it because chilled. You should be taken to the veterinarian at once.
You have to watch out your new puppy be carefully. Few first day, they can get very sick if they stop eating. Keep dry food and water available at any time. Do not allow the puppy to overtire.
Young Puppies, especially small breeds are vulnerable to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Hypoglycemia can potentially be fatal if not treated quickly! Factors that contribute to hypoglycemia are stress, excess exercise, exhaustion, heat, cold, and low calorie intake.
The seller DOES NOT guarantee any puppy that suffers from hypoglycemia and/or dies. Because how the puppy is cared for, is out of my control once it leaves my home.
