Do not allow your puppy to go over 3 hours without eating once it arrives at your location. It must also drink plenty of water.
Please give your puppy a full body bath the first day that it arrives at your location, just in case one of the flight attendants handled your puppy after they held someone else's puppy. Pay close attention to the feet, just in case your puppy was put down on a counter where another puppy had been. You can use Tear less Shampoo, it can normally be found at Wal Mart or your local pet store.
We recommend: Brand: Lambert Kay ( Fresh & Clean or Oatmeal Shampoo ) They both smell great and the Oatmeal Shampoo with leave your puppy with a very soft conditioned coat.
When you give your new puppy a bath, DO NOT IMMERSE HIS/HER HEAD IN WATER. It will frighten them and if they gasp in for air and take in water, it can get down in their lungs. If this happens they normally develop pneumonia, and it can be very costly to treat if they are hospitalized. Run a cup of water over their face only if needed while holding your hand over their mouth and nose to rinse off their face. However, we do recommend that you wash their face right away. The best way to do this is with a warm wet cloth. Wash their face with a warm cloth until they are a little older and become less afraid of bath time. It will help prevent them from getting water into their lungs. If you cannot get a vet appointment right away to have your puppy examined, ask your vet if you can at least drop off a stool sample. This will allow them time to get the results back by the time of your first exam. Don't let anything stop you from taking your puppy in for his/her first office visit. If you did not get your shot records in your new puppy folder, let me know right away and I will e-mail them to you. Most of the puppies are given a vaccine by the breeder, not the vet, within 2 to 5 days of leaving our location. If you do not receive the shot records in your folder, please call us right away. Rabies vaccines are only given to puppies that are over 12 weeks of age. Vaccinating your puppy too soon can cause illness or death to your puppy. Vaccines should be given 15 to 21 days apart. First set of shots are given at 40 days of age and again at 8 weeks of age. If your puppy is 8 weeks old, when you receive it, It will have had it's first and second set of shots and de-wormed. You will then only need to make 2 more trips to the vet for vaccines instead of the usual 4. Your puppy will be ready for a third set of shots at 10 to 11 weeks of age.
It will be your responsibility to activate your pet insurance. We strongly recommend that you take out the pet insurance before your puppy arrives at your location.
