Get excited for the start of spring with National Puppy Day on March 23. If you are planning on buying or adopting a new puppy on National Puppy Day in Covington, it is important to know how to properly take care of a new dog. If you are a first-time dog owner, follow these crucial puppy care tips!
Find a good vet
First thing’s first: find a good vet. If you are in the Conyers area, you’re in luck. Spring Lake Animal Hospital, Rockdale Animal Hospital, and Conyers Animal Hospital are all close by and offer excellent care for dogs of all ages.
Buy quality food
Similar to infants, puppies need different food than full-grown dogs. Depending on the breed of your new puppy, plan on sticking to puppy food for around one to two years before switching over to an adult-dog diet. Regardless of your dog’s age, spending extra on nutritional food is always a good bet.
Catch illness early
When puppies are young, they are susceptible to sudden illnesses that can pose serious health risks, if not treated right away. Call your vet if you notice any red flags such as a loss of appetite, weight loss, vomiting, lethargy, and pale gums in your puppy.
Like a puppy, do not forget that your car needs a check-up as well. Take it to the service experts at Ginn CDJR.
