Daisy May's mummy

Never had a puppy before

7 posts in this topic

Hi Every one,

Just got Daisy on Saturday,I have always had dogs before but never a puppy.She is 9 weeks old and is a good little girl (wasn't until we had her in bed the first night!).I know you shouldn't change their food over too quickly, but the breeder was feeding rubbish.She gave me a can to take home that was bigger than Daisy,4% meat deriatives.I got some wainwrights puppy turkey and rice (wet) and mixed it in with the other one. I can't use their one after today and I don't want to buy another.She did have Wainwrights on it's own this morning and poo was normal.

Do you think I could carry on? Thank you, 

Christina

Welcome Christina.  She's gorgeous.  Afraid I'm no expert on the food front and will leave it for one of the 'experts' on the forum but just wanted to say welcome,. This is a really helpful forum.

Thank you,I'm sure I will have lots of questions.Took her tonight for first injection and she is fine. Enjoying her Wainwrights 5 small meals a day(turkey and rice trays)Just not sure how much.Rang the Pets at Home helpline and they said 1/2 a tray, so will go with that for now.Lost my little yorkshire terrier in November through neglect by vet (had tummy ache rushed her food) took her in three times and they sent me home, finally admitted her for observation and let her die in agony, It was obvious from her symptoms ( being sick and bringing up undigested food ) that is was an obstruction or bloat.So after a whole day and night in pain rang me to say she had died.I have been very ill over this for six months so please excuse me if I get worried  about Daisy.Picked her up last Saturday and the place looked liked a puppy farm.Vet said she is very healthy but has worms.

Looking forward to getting to know you all, and please feel free to tell me if I get paranoid!

Hi Christina

Your pup is lovely. I hope settling in well. 

Feed pup at least 4 meals a day. Little and often that will build pup up. You will find the best food that suits Daisy. Most of the time its trial and error but it will sort itself out. You will also work out how much to give. 

I am sorry to hear about your other dog I lost my German Shepherd Jake in march.

we now have a new German Shepherd pup Cody who is 12 weeks today. 

He had a bad belly a couple of weeks ago glad to say he is better now. Please keep us updated as to how both you and Daisy get on. 

Below is our Cody.

Thank you so much, Cody is gorgeous,thought I had replied earlier my couldn't find it! (70 next week and not very comp savvy) Daisy May is settling in really well. had her first injection Tues and really cried afterwards (and they didn't give her a sticker!) Didn't know what she had had before (although the breeder!! said no injections) so at least I knew that and didn't want to risk too much.Had advocate and a worming pill,all my other dogs would be such a job to get a pill down them but she ate it in with her food.Going on the puppy pads most of the time, and have taken out in her carrier.Vet said next one in four weeks but some say two.Was going to Spain for my birthday but have given it to my grand daughter as I couldn't leave her with anyone.Husband does the night wees and poos (about 3 times!) she sleeps up between our pillows and having hot sweats again from all the other pillows piled up around us.So happy I have found you all.I have only got her and so glad I did.

Hi christina

Daisy May is only little so it would probably hurt her. Most of mine have cried for a couple of days after the jab. 2nd jab is done at different times by different vets. Ours doesn't do the 2nd one until 10 weeks and over. Because Cody is a big dog our vet gives top so he goes next sat for that as vet says normal lot in big dogs doesn't always take. 

It will be interesting to see how much he weighs now. I bet Daisy May weight is coming on fine.

Dont worry about not being computer savvy I am still getting to grips with it. 

As for Daisy May sleeping with you I have 3 yorkies and a cat sleeping on my bed. With Cody on the floor by the side of the bed. 

Remember Daisy May wants comfort and to be near you. She is just a baby. 

Happy Birthday for next week. 

Just to add our Scottish terrier sleeps with my son. 

My hubby sleeps in our other bedroom reason is he snores terribly and keeps me awake lol
