Teach you to raise a puppy from 0 to 12 months

The two most difficult stages for dogs to care for are the puppy stage and the old age stage. Today we are going to talk to you about how to take good care of a puppy. It is much easier to take care of a puppy after it is one year old.

0-1 month: breast milk/warm period

The best time to take a puppy home is when it is naturally weaned from breast milk, about 2-3 months old. But sometimes there will be some special circumstances, such as the adoption of stray dogs, the lack of milk from the mother dog, and so on. Newborn puppies are weak and need to pay special attention to warmth and environmental cleanliness. Breastfeeding is the best, if there is no condition, can be suitable for pets born to drink goat milk powder instead, do not feed milk.

Artificial feeding: Pay attention to the dosage. You can use a syringe with the needle removed.

0-7 days: every 2-3 hours/time
7-21 days: every 3-4 times
21-28 days: every 4-5h/time

Keep warm: Prepare a warm kennel and put on a diaper.

2-3 months: vaccine deworming period

At this time, puppies enter the weaning period, and without the protection of breast milk immunity, puppies need to complete deworming and vaccination to improve their resistance to various viruses.

Deworming: Start internal deworming at 4 weeks and external deworming at 6 weeks.

Vaccine: 45 days to start vaccination, 4/6 can be. Pay attention to the dog’s physical condition before vaccination, and do not vaccinate during a cold.

Dog food: It is recommended to choose milk cake. Soak the dog food in warm water and feed it with a small number of meals. The dog doesn’t know how to be hungry and full, so he must not overdo it.

Tips: Check whether the puppy is full, you can touch its belly with your hand, gently press it is solid, and protruding one or two centimeters is appropriate. If you press it down, it proves that the dog is not full. The belly of the puppy is obviously larger than the waist, that is, it is too full, which will cause the puppy to vomit.

4-5 months, the period of changing teeth and food for the puppy

At this time, the puppies’sharp deciduous teeth began to fall off, and the constant pressure had begun to grow completely.

Feeding: At this time, it is no longer necessary to use soft dog food to feed, you can directly feed the normal full-term food or puppy food.

Teeth grinding: You can choose toys or teething sticks that are safe and resistant to biting and have moderate hardness.

6-7 months: a critical period of development

At this time, the puppy is in the golden period of growing up, so we should pay attention to the usual nutritional supplements. When meat and vegetables are fed in moderation, the puppy’s appetite will increase greatly. The amount of feeding can be increased appropriately, but not too much. At this time, the dog is also in heat.

Estrus: The dog can be allowed to vent properly, but don’t indulge it and do some impolite behavior, which will bring embarrassment to the owner. You can also take the dog out for exercise to distract his attention.

8-10 months: daily nursing period

Dogs need regular grooming, bathing, eye cleaning, nail trimming, and dental care when they enter the molting period.

Hair care: usually comb the dog more to prevent knots, you can feed it some fish oil, egg yolk.

Dental care: Brush your dog’s teeth regularly, especially after the soft food is used up, you can give your dog a tooth cleaning stick.
