Frequently Asked Question!
What you feed your puppy now has a direct effect on his future health, growth and development, so it’s not surprising that I get asked a LOT of questions about diet and puppy food.
Choose puppy kibble that has the wording ‘a complete and balanced diet’ on the package. This shows it meets the standards set by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials).
You need to be sure the dog food you pick has a good source of high quality protein as it’s first ingredient. Chicken or Lamb are both good choices.
Puppies grow very rapidly, and to support that growth they need a diet high in protein, fat, vitamins and minerals.
Protein values should be around 25% plus and fat around 15%. If you have a large breed or small breed puppy, look for a puppy food that is especially designed to meet their specific requirements.
Even when potty training is going smoothly, there will be times when your puppy has an ‘accident’. It’s one of those ‘puppy FAQs of life’.
To avoid having your carpets ruined you need to act quickly, and tackle those puddles in the right way.
To be effective, you need to blot up any liquid that is in your carpet. Then you need to rinse the area well with clean, cool water and blot that up too.
Follow this with an application of an enzymatic-based cleaner/odor remover. Allow this to soak into the carpet for at least 10 minutes and then blot up the excess. Allow area to dry thoroughly.
You may need to repeat this process more than once.
If you want your precious little puppy to grow up to be a well-behaved companion, you need to teach him or her some manners, and some basic obedience commands.
A fair number of puppy FAQs center around puppy behavior, and learning what behavior is acceptable and what isn’t should be some of his earliest lessons!
If you want your pup to understand what you expect of him, there are three simple steps that you MUST follow :
- tell your puppy what you want him to do
- help him to perform that behavior
- reward him with treats and/or praise when he is successful
Several short training sessions per day are much better than one longer one because you want him to enjoy his trainings sessions and think they’re a fun part of his day.
Luckily for our customers, all puppies from pets4lovers are already well trained to recognize their names, and also obey all basic commands like “sit”, “come”, “down” etc.
Constant licking and/or scratching and red, itchy skin or hair loss are all signs of dog allergies.
I think it’s important to point out in this Puppy FAQs page that dogs suffer from allergies just as people do!
There are many different causes and triggers for dog allergies, but most result in skin problems and a variety of allergies
- Flea allergy
- Inhalant allergy
- Dog food allergy
- Contact allergy
There are many, many different ways to treat allergies in dogs, and of course the treatment depends on the trigger!
Puppies are like children. They love to learn and they’re inquisitive. And just like with children, you have to keep things they can chew on and swallow out of reach. So keep toys away, and don’t leave food where they can get to it, especially candy or foods that could make them sick. Keep trash cans secured or they will get into them and eat bones and beer bottle tops and other things that are dangerous. I can’t tell you how many beer bottle tops I’ve taken out of puppies’ bellies.
The biggest thing we see in our emergency room with puppies is that they’ve swallowed something. They swallow balls, a sock, a piece of a plastic toy. Puppies love to chew on plastic.
Not all puppies, but it is very common for puppies to have roundworms or hookworms, either passed in utero or through a mothers’ milk. Because worm infection is so common, we normally deworm puppies just to be safe. Fecal samples might not show parasites, but it’s so common that it’s almost irresponsible not to deworm a puppy.
