When I get home after I buy a dog in Tampa what is the most critical time period for my new puppy?

The first 48 hours after you get a puppy for sale in Tampa  are especially critical.  Many new puppy owners will have the urge to excessively hold the puppy or let the puppy round around. Don’t do it! If you let it run around or excessively hold the puppy, in the beginning, it may cause loss of appetite.  It's also important to educate the entire household on how delicate a puppy is.  For example, if you buy a puppy in Tampa, and you accidentally drop it, the dog could have severe injuries such as a broken femur or a fractured leg which will be very painful for the puppy and give you a very large veterinrain surgery bill.  Never let any children under the age of eighteen hold a puppy in their hands standing up , they should interact only on the floor.

After I look for puppies for sale in Tampa and bring my new dog home, why are the first two weeks so important?

When you find a dog in Tampa, the first two weeks are usually the adjustment period.  When   getting a puppy in Tampa, and it is brought home for the first time, it is in the most stressful period for your puppy’s  life as it enters a new environment and leaves a familiar environment. 

When you get a dog in Tampa, it needs an appropriately sized single confined space (such as a playpen or crate) in a designated room during the adjustment and house-training period. When you cannot supervise and interact with the puppy, it must remain in its designated confined, quiet, clean space and be provided with access to clean water at all times. 

Please avoid bringing the puppy into contact with other pets during the adjustment period because it will overstress your new puppy. If other pets are present in the home, do not let the other puppies make contact with the new puppy for the first 14 days. Thereafter, contact is to be gradually and slowly increased, under supervised conditions for successful integration. Do not bring the puppy to parks, beaches, etc… during the adjustment period. Do not disturb the puppy while it is sleeping, napping or resting. Excessive, continuous interaction/play prevents the puppy from resting/napping and will weaken its immune system (making the Pet more susceptible to any infections or intestinal parasites that it may have come in contact with).  Furthermore, dogs for sale in Tampa can easily get over exhausted, which can trigger spikes in blood sugar.

When I adopt a puppy in Tampa, what are some simple rules I should follow to make sure it will stay happy and healthy?

When you buy a dog in Tampa, there are a few simple rules that must be followed to make sure the puppy stays healthy and happy and to ensure that you will not void the pet dealer’s warranty. The first item is to make sure you keep the puppy inside the house for a minimum of two weeks. 

A puppy’s immune system is still not fully developed so keeping it inside will separate harmful viruses and bacteria from your puppy until it can get its next booster shot. If you must take it out immediately to start housebreaking, then take it only on concrete floor walking for the minimum amount of time necessary, and take it back home.  Never let a new puppy run around in a park right after it comes home, you risk it catching harmful viruses and bacteria which can seriously threaten its health.  In addition, you should  very closely monitor the puppy’s eating, drinking, peeing and pooping for any changes in the first two weeks and follow up promptly with your vet  if the need arises.  Your pet dealer will have notification requirements in their contract so please be sure you understand and ask a lot of questions.

After I find a puppy for sale in Tampa, why should I register my puppy’s Microchip in my name?

Once you get a dog in Tampa, you will want to register the microchip in your name in case your new friend gets lost, others will be able to scan the puppy’s microchip and look up the number online and see your contact information, to advise you that they found it. One item to be aware of when it comes to microchips, they will shift with time. So when you go to the annual vet visit, make sure your vet, reverifies that the microchip is still there.

When I buy a puppy in Tampa, what is the best way to migrate it to new dog food?

After getting a puppy in Tampa you may want to change the food.  That is fine but you have to do it slowly so you don’t cause the puppy diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration. What do you want to do is mix 3/4 of the old food, and one order of the new food and let the puppy eat it for the next 2 to 3 days. If everything goes well and the puppy does not have any irritation, or negative reaction to the new mix, you can give it half of the old and have than you for the next 2 to 3 days. If that goes well then give 3/4 of the new and 1/4 of the old, and if that is fine, you can put it permanently on your new food. If you are migrating a very small dog to new food, you also have to be on guard for loss of appetite.

Will dogs for sale in Tampa have different feeding requirements, and what are some good sizing guidelines as far as quantity of food I should give based on weights of the puppy?

First off, puppies need to be given individual attention to their diet on a daily basis, you have to monitor new puppies every few hours to make sure they are eating during the first few weeks.  We suggest you give daily dry kibble, if your puppy currently weights:

  • If the puppy OVER 10 LBs, give 3 evenly-spaced meals, 1 Cup for EACH MEAL
  • If the puppy is between 5-10 LBs, give 3 evenly-spaced meals, 1/2 Cup for EACH MEAL
  • If the puppy is UNDER 5 LBs, give 4 evenly-spaced meals, 1/4 Cup for  EACH MEAL. 

For SMALL Puppies, it is highly recommended at the start of the day, end of the day and halfway in between meals (3 hours after a meal), give 1 small pea sized drop of a high calorie nutritional gel/paste (like Nutrical). The puppy can lick the drop directly from a finger or spoon. Leave extra food during the last meal of the day for the night.

If the puppy does not want to eat the dry kibble, mix in 2 Tablespoons of wet canned puppy food with the kibble for each meal. In addition, you can try to put some water on the kibbles and microwave it to release odors that will give the puppy more appetite. Should your Pet not want to eat, you will have to slowly spoon or syringe feed it gently.  Please discuss feeding at the first vet visit. As the Pet gets older and larger, the quantities will change in accordance to the guidelines established by the food manufacturer. Please No human food, ever! It can poison the puppy and cause serious health problems and/or death.  Avoid giving the puppy liquid milks/foods, it can cause an upset stomach.

When you are looking for puppies for sale in Tampa, why is it important to always make sure you receive an official certificate of veterinary inspection? Also, what should I be looking for in the official certificate of veterinary health?

A dog’s health certificate is your insurance policy that the puppy you are getting has been cleared by a veterinarian and it is fit for sale prior to purchase.  This is an instrument that is actually owned by the veterinarian, even though it is given to you through the store.  The store or breeder does not sign off on the document, it is the veterinarian’s license that’s on the line when the document is issued.   In the veterinary health certificate you will see the date the puppy was inspected at the bottom of the document and also the dates of administration of the vaccines and prophylactics. Another important point about the health certificate is that in the comments section you will see any observations or additional disclosures regarding the puppy.   Note that there are many ways to buy a puppy in Tampa, but you should be especially careful from getting a dog in Tampa from individuals operating out of their homes or meeting them at random locations.  You are likely not going to get a proper health certificate, or more likely not even get a health certificate with the puppy.  This is illegal in all states.  Without the insurance of having a vet sign off on the health of the puppy your exposing yourself to getting a puppy in Tampa with problems.  As time passes the puppy will need follow up booster shots to increase the immunity of the puppy to common canine viruses.   Another mistake that some people make after purchasing a puppy in Tampa is thinking that the store shots given at time of purchase are the only one that is needed. A vet will explain to you the additional vaccines that a puppy needs after taking it home so be sure to visit your medical professional on a timely basis so they can review that.

After I find a puppy for sale, should I sign up for pet Insurance?

Like any insurance product, you have to break down the benefits and costs against your situation. Some pet insurance products tout low fees but have exclusions for many situations and have monetary caps on what they pay out.  Remember, the insurance company is in business to make money, just like your home or auto insurance company.  If insurance companies would generally pay out more in claims than they bring in, they would go out of business!  Generally speaking, if your puppy is healthy, it would be better to put away a fixed yearly amount into an emergency reserve to cover different situations.  In most cases, the amount that you will put into premiums will be less than you would yield in case of an emergency with the pet.  So our advice is to maintain your pet with ongoing recommended vet maintenance as the best defense against unexpected vet bills.
