Puppy Pick Up

 PUPPY  PICK UP DAY

 

  • 5-way shot will be administrated. Please don’t not take them to pet stores, parks, sidewalks, or unknown dogs until their 2nd rounds of shots are given. This is to protect them from parvo and other diseases. A record of their 5-way shot will be provided for you to show your vet in 4 weeks. Shot records click here.​

  • We have wormed the puppies at 2, 4, 6, & 8 weeks.

  • The balance of puppy is due when you come to pick your puppy up. You may pay by check, cash, PayPal, or credit card. A receipt and zero balance will be given.

  • Poodle Information will be given.

  • Please bring a blanket, towel (just incase puppy get sick on way home), water, and harness/leash if puppy is to have long car ride home.

 

A bag of puppy food is provided in case you plan to switch foods. Please mix their food slowly so not to upset the puppy’s tummy. But keep puppy on my puppy food for 1 week. We are using 4 Health Grain Free Puppy Food.

 

PLEASE use 1 or 2 teaspoon of Royal Canin Mousse on top of their dry puppy for the first few days until they start really getting use to their new home.

  • Puppy will probably cry during the first couple of nights, this is natural, seeing how they are taken away from siblings and mother. Make sure your puppy is WARM during the night. Try putting a blanket around their crate!

  • Feedings: Feed all day until puppies are 12 weeks old, then 3 X a day, and then 2 X when they are 6 months. . Please moisten their food until they are about 9 weeks old, or longer if they are picky eaters. Or you may try to add the can of Royal Canin to their dry puppy food.                                      

  • Poodle puppies LOVE water, but take it up at night.

  • REMEMBER: Puppies need sleep/naps during the day!

 

FEEDING

*You will need to keep your puppy with his/her puppy food 24 hour daily until he/she is 12 weeks old. Soft puppy foods are often needed; as your puppy may too stressed to eat hard food. They need extra warmth too.* 

 

** Owners of young toy puppies should buy and keep on hand a tubes of Nutri-Cal & Royal Canin Puppy Mousse Starter.**

 

I think a significant part of the risk from hypoglycemia is that so many of the triggers can occur in the first hours and days in a new home, just when the new owner has least experience and does not know the pup's normal behavior. A puppy leaves everything it knows (stress), travels to a new place (potential for chills and a missed meal), finds itself in a whole new environment, which may make it stressed and fearful or too excited to eat, is possibly offered a change of diet, and may not be fed as frequently as necessary, especially if the new owner is working. Perfect storm conditions for hypoglycemia, and for a new owner it may just seem that the pup is rather quiet or sleepy.

 

Toy-breed dogs are not only at risk for hypoglycemia, they can die from the low blood sugar disorder if they do not receive prompt treatment.
