Puppy Care & Favorite Products

We raise our babies naturally & with Puppy Culture protocols.  Our moms, dad, & babies eat  Lamb Meal & Brown Rice Recipe Life's Abundance All Life Stage. All of our moms & dad get Pet Honesty 10 for 1 peanut butter vitamin.  Once a month, they get a couple sprays of colloidal silver in each ear, we also use it at necessary times internally for them to stay healthy.   Babies will have their dew claws removed & tails docked in the first three-five 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.   

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.  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...

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.

Over vaccinating has been linked to many health issues, even death.  Please educate yourself about vaccinating your puppy so you can make the decision you feel good about.  Please read the Vaccine Information page.  Silver for pets...I highly recommend getting this & using it for your baby to stay'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.

My favorite natural way to deworm and make sure your baby stays worm free, is crush up some raw organic unsalted pumpkin seeds... I would do this at least once a week on a specific day.

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.
