Puppy Care

We raise our babies as naturally as possible. Our moms & babies eat Blue Buffalo's Lamb & Oatmeal formula... Tiny babies will need their food ground up for them until they are old enough to eat puppy food on their own. Add some purified water to ground up puppy food to make a mush for them. Moms get Qrill Pet sprinkled on their food before, during, and through nursing. They also get diatomaceous earth (for de-worming & it also has many minerals) sprinkled on their food once a week while pregnant & nursing. All of the moms get a Multivitamin daily from heat to end of nursing. Once a month, they get a couple sprays of colloidal silver in each ear, we also use it for them to stay healthy. Babies will have their dew claws removed in the first three days of birth, and will also come with a letter of health from our vet. Please see the more natural vaccine chart below & read the Vaccination Information page so you can make a decision you feel right about. It will be your choice whether or not to vaccinate your puppy. They always have access to clean water with the Lixit pet water bottle. I would suggest looking at the puppy apartment (link & coupon code below) for small ones especially if you work and can't take them to the bathroom regularly and/or to help with potty training. Also puppy playpens are awesome ways to keep them safe and they love having their own little bedroom that's their own safe & comfy space.


When taking your puppy home, you will need to make sure that he/she receives plenty of rest. Do not let him/her over exert himself/herself for the first two weeks. Minimize their activity level so their blood sugar levels do not drop. Puppies are easily stressed by excessive holding. You should limit holding your puppy to 15 minutes an hour unless he/she is sleeping on your lap. Puppy playpens or play yards are best to house a toy breed puppy. It allows them to see their surroundings and not feel lonely. Make sure they are kept warm enough and away from drafts, but where they can see you. They will always need access to clean water to stay hydrated. Until your puppy is to a strong and stable healthy weight and age, they will also need their food ground up with added purified water to make a mush, or soaked for 15-20 minutes whole before feeding. If you ever find your puppy lethargic, rub a small amount of honey on his/her gums. Make sure to never give your puppy something that could hurt them or that they could choke on. If you don't know what is going on with your puppy and are worried about him/her, call your vet. Make sure your puppy is eating and drinking regularly and going to the bathroom regularly. Always remember your puppy is a baby...

https://sovereignsilver.com/pages/pets-immune Silver for pets...I highly recommend getting this & using it for your baby to stay healthy...it's also good for their dental & tear stains...

Recommendations for our tinies, 1-2 sprays in their mouth a day until they are bigger, 3 sprays in their mouth a day for 2 1/2-3 pounds, 5 sprays in their mouth a day for 3 1/2-7 pounds. Ears... 1-3 sprays in each ear once a month, if they have tear stains, 1-3 sprays in each eye until gone.


Diatomaceous Earth for those in Utah, Good Earth has a pound bag for around $3, if you're not in Utah, food grade diatomaceous Earth can be found online. I recommend 1/4 tsp once a week mixed in food....this adds minerals and also naturally deworms your baby


Pumpkin....I recommend having a small can of pumpkin incase your baby is throwing up, has an upset stomach, or has diarrhea... give them 1/4-1/2 tsp twice a day until symptoms are gone.


Because your baby is so small, I highly recommend getting a portable playpen for when you go places so your baby is never wandering around to get stepped on... you can find small & medium sizes online or in pet stores. You can take a puppy pad with you for them to place in the playpen.

This is one of the vitamins that we love that our moms get in-between breeding, and dad gets all the time...you can get this at Costco
