hello Two weeks ago, I found a little puppy abandoned in the street , he followed me so I took him home and I'm trying to take care of him but I used to be a cat person so I don't know much about taking care of dogs , I would appreciate any help I get Thank you very much
For starters you need puppy food and water, newspapers on the floor, and a gate or door to confine him. If he is not eatting, you must do whatever it takes to get him to eat. Canned food mixed with dry might work. He should see a vet right away, but if funds don't allow it, definitely buy dewormer right away and dose him per the directions. Worms kill puppies. Check for fleas with a fine tooth comb, or you will have them bad if you don't catch it now. Don't use Hartz flea products. They are dangerous. A vet can help you after this point if you call them.
The first thing you should do besides getting puppy food for him/her is to make an appointment with the vet immediately!
The puppy will need examined to find out approximate age, make sure it is wormed and that it is not ill and also to begin its series of shots to avoid it contracting, parvo, etc.
Depending on age is what you may need to feed to get it to eat sufficiently. Does it have its teeth in?
Offer a good quality dry puppy food 3 times a day, you can add a bit of can food to entice it if it does not eat well at first. Also, consider soaking the food in hot water first to make it softer if it does not seem to eat the dry well.
The vet visit will be a good time to ask alot of questions about what it will need now and in the coming weeks.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.
Thank you so much for your help , I will make time for the vet as soon as I can The good thing is that he's eating well, and I began to take him on little walks , he's very energetic though , should I be worried about that? A dog keeper told me that he's 3 months old
Its nice to hear you about your new pet. Well its scary if you have kids in your home. You must train the dog to behave well. There must be someone to take care of the puppy while you are not at the home, make sure that the puppy will not trouble at that time. New puppies have a tendency to get into everything and will rip apart curtains, slippers, and couches without knowing what kind of destruction they're causing. Bathing, medicating for growth and infection, giving food and water in right time etc are the basic things you must have known. Playing with the puppy by tossing a tennis ball, giving him a rawhide bone, or taking him out for a walk in the park are all things that need to be done to keep the animal healthy.
Hope you will like my suggestions. Thanks, Puptrainingcollar
thank you for your suggestions , I did most of the things you advised me to , and thank god , I have now a healthy , beautiful puppy :) I can't take him for walks everyday though , because I don't have the time but I try to give him those toys he can shew but the problem is , he only plays with them when I'm around , otherwise , they're thrown on the floor and he's tearing something else apart , I don't know why !! I don't have enough time to train him right now , and I can't afford a personal trainer of course ! so right now I'm just trying to keep most things away from him He's eating well and he looks happy but I find raising a dog has the same responsibility as having a child !! it takes so much time but I'm trying to be a good "mother" :) Wish me luck !!! and thank you all again
And when you go to the vet ask if there's any medicine your puppy needs, like HeartGard for heartworms, ear drops for any ear infections and flea and tick protection. That's would my family and me did with my dog, a few days after we bought him. It's a good thing you found that lost puppy!
"I can't take him for walks everyday though , because I don't have the time but I try to give him those toys he can shew but the problem is , he only plays with them when I'm around , otherwise , they're thrown on the floor and he's tearing something else apart , I don't know why !!"
You don't know why? Really? You need to make time to take him for walks! He needs to work off his energy, and if you're not providing an outlet, he's gonna work it off in his own way, which appears to be tearing things apart.
Thank you all for your advice :) I am glad to tell you that now I take him for walks (almost) everyday and he seems very happy , but he didn't stop chewing everything he lays his eyes on , and no matter how many times I say 'NO' , he only listens when he's done tearing that thing apart , I also don't understand him being so attached to me , I play with him when I have the time but I can't carry him with me everywhere I go , and I love him , I really do and I want him to be happy but sometimes I wonder if I'm a good owner to him or if maybe this was a mistake
Get your dog food, fresh water and up to about 5 toys. You should also start house breaking your dog. Make sure he/she gets exersice. And don't exersice your dog after he/she is done eating. I heard it can cause stomach problems. Anyways, take your dog for a walk once a day. But, it also depends on whow high it's energy level is. If it is a smaller dog feed it once a day, if it's a bigger dog feed it 2 times a day. Go to the vet, too. And they will also tell you what food to buy. What breed is your dog?
I love my dog! He's on security guard! And also a natural born cutie!
