Puppy and Dog Care Update

Puppy care update: If you care about your pets health, I recommend using a high quality food and vitamins and limited vaccines.
I research constantly and upgrade the food and supplements that I feed my dogs.
I also stay up to date with the current vaccine protocol.
Recently, AND FINALLY! Vets now admit only 2 doses of the core vaccines are needed in puppyhood with a booster at 1 year. Then NEVER again. This will provide immunity without causing antibody competition and causing disease.
Please remember,  all dog foods are processed and our pets need a quality vitamin. I recommend Nuvet for life. Since our breed is small and the wafers are large, I recommend 1/4 tab daily for adults and 1/4 tab every other day for puppies under 6 months. This is approved by the manufacturer.

** Vitamins For your convenience, you may order onlineby clicking on this link

The next post will address dog food quality.
Thank you!
