KEEPING YOUR PUPPY SAFE

KEEPING YOUR PUPPY SAFE FROM DISEASES, PARASITES & INJURY
To keep your puppy safe from communicable diseases and parasites, puppies should be kept off the ground outside and kept inside your home (this is a no absolute guarantee, but will reduce the risk to the puppy immensely).
Your puppy can contract a number of illnesses (some of which are fatal) from being on the ground, some of which are distemper and parvo just to list a few). If your puppy is outside on the ground, it may also pick up a number of parasites (some of which can be fatal----especially to tiny puppies) such as coccidia and Guardia, as well as, a number of diffrent type of worms. Some of these things can be brought in on your clothing, as well as, your shoes, so just beware....cleanliness is the only way to keep your puppy healthy. Please make sure all food items that need refrigerated be refrigerated right away so they do not draw bacteria. Also, we recommend using baby food meat instead of using canned dog food. We have had tremendous luck in doing this .... Tiny puppies need to be protected from everything outside and need to be handled with clean hands and clean clothing at all times to prevent them from becoming ill. Please make sure you ask your breeder how they raise their puppies. Veterinarians will advise you to keep unvaccinated puppies off the ground at all times to prevent all types of infections and illness.
Another method of transmission can occur by someone else touching your puppy before they wash their hands. Make sure everyone who touches your unvaccinated puppy has on clean clothing and washes their hands BEFORE they touch your puppy. Some diseases can be carried in on clothing and is airborne (namely kennel cough). Your puppy does not even have to come in direct contract with kennel cough to become infected with it.
Most people looking for a puppy will visit several places before coming to ours; as you can see, they bring everything with them from the previous places to our home to possibly infect our dogs/puppies. We cannot ensure you a happy healthy puppy if we do not take every precaution to protect your baby from the outside world. We take every precautions known to man to ensure you receive a healthy puppy, as well as, well-socialize puppy.
 If you have any questions about this information, please do not hesitate to ask questions about the information provided, health, and conformation. We are careful what we breed and to whom we breed.

I hope this gives you a better idea about how we price our puppies. Please let us know if you have any questions about pricing.... thank you for your time and patience.
HYPOGLYCEMIA (LOW BLOOD SUGAR) on (chihuahuas only)
FOR CHIHUAHUAS ONLY!
      This is a central nervous system disorder caused by low blood sugar levels. It                         occurs mainly in toy breeds between 6 and 16 weeks of age.
*STRESS IS THE LEADING CAUSE*
              The first signs are listlessness and depression. The are followed by muscular weakness, vomiting and/ or diarrhea, tremors (especially in the facial muscles), and
later convulsions, coma, and probable death. The entire sequence of symptoms is not always seen. The dog may simply appear to be depressed or he may be weak, wobbly
and jerky or he may be found stiff, unable to coordinate or in a coma.
Hypoglycemia can occur without warning when a puppy is placed in a new home. It might appear after a puppy misses a meal, chills, becomes exhausted from too much playing, or has a digestive problem. These problems cause an added strain on the
energy reserves of the liver and bring on the symptoms.
TREATMENT; Beginning at once! Treatment is directed at restoring blood levels of glucose. Give the puppy mouthful of NUTRI-CAL* or Karo Syrup. If he can not swallow
it all at once, it will begin to absorb under the tongue to begin bringing him back to a conscious state so that he will be able to swallow the rest. When he can swallow, give him water (about 1 cc at a time so he does not choke). Continue to give him Nutri-Cal
and water about every 10 min. Until he is conscious and moving about. CALL YOUR
VET IMMEDIATELY IF THE PUPPY DOES NOT RESPOND!!! The puppy will need sub-q injections of lactated ringers solution every 4 hours for about 2 days to restore it to
a normal state. He may also need some antibiotics to combat secondary infections
that can arise from the lowered immune system that results from the hypoglycemia.
*Nutri-Cal is high calorie supplement. It will helps the puppy's blood sugar level and energy. You can buy at pets shop or any vets office.
If you do not have Nutri-Cal, honey or syrup can be used until you can get some Nutri-Cal. The does is 1 cc every 10 min till recovered. As soon as the puppy begins to recover,
give him some canned food (we recommend Science Diet A/D canned) and try to get him
to eat. You will also need to begin some pepto or bisol to help him from getting bad diarrhea. The large does of Nutri-Cal or Karo syrup will probably cause some diarrhea
to occur, but it is usually self limiting.
Prevent recurrent attacks by making sure the puppy eats at regular intervals. He should have dry food and fresh water available at all the time and should be fed canned food at least 2 times a day. A daily vitamin should be given, (Nutri-Cal 1 cc 2 or 3 time a day) also cottage cheese or yogurt can be added to the diet.
Owners of toy puppies should not allow them to become overtired or chilled. Play time should be limited and controlled to prevent undue stress and tiring. Hypoglycemia must be offset by frequent feedings. A puppy who does not eat frequently, for whatever reason, is heading for trouble.
PUPPY'S FIRST DAY
Some of tips your first day with your new puppy a great beginning.
* PLEASE READ *
1. Your puppy will be as excited as you are. But he/she may feel timid until the new surrounding begin to feel like home. One of the biggest mistakes people make when they purchase a new puppy is they immediately have to take it visiting to show it off. NOT A GOOD IDEA!!! Take your puppy straight home and try your very best to keep it there until it has adjusted to it's new surroundings and it's new "parents". Don't do anything that stress the puppy out. Introducing your puppy is trouble when in a new situation.
2. Puppies spend most of their time sleeping until they are several months old. So PLEASE limit play time the first day. Given the chance most puppies will play until they are past exhaustion. We suggest you and your puppy play as hard as you like for up to 15 or 20 minutes but then allow undisturbed time for a nap or rest on their bed. Do not carry around or let puppy take nap on your lap all day. Puppy needs their own safety place and rest. After a nap your puppy should be ready to go again. Remember they have just been on a long trip. Think about how you feel after traveling.
* PLENTY OF FREE TIME FOR REST AND SLEEP AND AVOID STRESS *
3. Make sure that puppy has fresh water and dry food all day and your puppy is able to drink and eat whenever they can. The most important thing is that PUPPY MUST EAT AND EAT ENOUGH TO KEEP IT SYSTEM STABLE WHILE PUPPY IS GETTING USED TO HIS NEW HOME. If you have a human baby, you will make sure that your baby has a full belly.
4. It is best to wait at least a day before introducing other pets such as dogs or cats. Then when you introduce them do it carefully and always keep watch closely in case you may need to intervene.
5. Be sure you have your vet appointment set up and you follow through on any additional vaccinations needs as they grow and an annual booster. DO NOT LET PUPPY WALK AROUND OUTSIDE OR TAKE IT WITH YOU SUCH AS PETS SHOP OR PARKS UNTIL THE PUPPY HAS ALL THEIR VACCINATIONS. When going to the vet office use some common sense, keep your puppy in a crate or in your lap when you visiting the vet. DO NOT LET YOUR PUPPY ROMP ON THE FLOOR OR FURNITURE AND MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT ALLOW IT TO SOCIALIZE WITH OTHER ANIMALS that may be in the office at the time. Where do all people take sick animals? Where the best place to pick up germs to contact disease? Remind all of the time, the puppy is like your new born baby!!!
* PLENTY OF FREE TIME FOR REST AND SLEEP AND AVOID STRESS *
6. Prevention is most important. Give your puppy NUTRI-CAL or STAT (1-1.5cc) 3-4 times daily in the morning, when puppy is playing hard the day and big helping at bedtime, and until puppy is 4-5 months old. This will make sure your puppy getting the nutrients and sugar to maintain good health. PLEASE DO THIS FOR YOUR PUPPY'S HEALTH.
Don't stop because the puppy is doing great, or your preventative measures. Hypoglycemia can be deadly but it easily prevented by following this guide.
* ALLOW YOUR NEW PUPPY PLENTY OF FREE TIME FOR REST AND SLEEP DURING
THE DAY TO AVOID STRESS, REMEMBER, PUPPY IS IN NEW SURROUNDINGS *
7. Be especially careful when handling your puppy, don't carry puppy around too much and do not drop it. Allowing young children to hold your puppy without supervision is very risky and the puppy is not a toy for children.
* PLENTY OF FREE TIME FOR REST AND SLEEP AND AVOID STRESS *
CONGRATULATION ON YOUR NEW FAMILY ADDITION!!!!
