1        WE FEED PRO-PLAN PUPPY FOOD… YOU CAN CHANGE THIS TO THE FOOD OF YOUR CHOICE…DO IT GRADUALLY OVER A PERIOD OF A FEW
DAYS… YOUR NEW PUPPY SHOULD BE EATING ABOUT 4 TO 6 CUPS DAILY SPLIT UP IN 3 FEEDINGS…AT THIS TIME WE ARE FEEDING 1 1/2 CUPS 3
TIMES DAILY...YOU MAY WANT TO INCREASE THAT SLIGHTLY IN THE NEXT WEEK OR SO...WE FEED EARLY IN THE MORNING…AGAIN AT MID-
DAY…AND AGAIN ABOUT 6-8:00 PM… THE LATEST WE GO IS 8:PM WITH WATER REMOVED AFTER THE LAST FEEDING…THIS ACCOMMODATES
THEIR LAST POTTY BREAK BEFORE RETIRING FOR THE NIGHT.


2        FOR FEMALES … IF YOU NOTICE SOME EXCESS "SQUATTING" AND VERY LITTLE URINARY ELIMINATION TRY GIVING HER SOME CRANBERRY
JUICE MIXED IN HER WATER... HELPS ALLEVIATE ANY URINARY TRACT PROBLEMS.

3        YOUR PUPPY IS RECEIVING ONE NuVET PLUS CANINE SUPPLEMENT WAFER EVERY DAY... WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONTINUE
FEEDING THIS SUPPLEMENT EVERY DAY FOR THE LIFETIME OF YOUR DOG... ESPECIALLY IN THE PUPPY STAGES OF LIFE... YOU CAN OBTAIN THIS
PRODUCT BY COPYING AND PASTING THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS INTO YOUR BROWSER...                 http://www.nuvet.com/28251  OR BY CLICKING

GELLCAP… (YOU CAN GET THEM AT BJ'S FOR A VERY REASONABLE PRICE

4        YOU CAN ALSO GIVE YOUR PUPPY A FEW (3 OR 4) IAMS PUPPY BISCUITS AS A TREAT DURING THE DAY. (YOU CAN GIVE MORE IF YOU WANT
TO)

                                                                     GROOMING

5        BATHE YOUR PUPPY IN A SHAMPOO RECOMMENDED FOR PUPPIES…NO FLEA OR TICK SHAMPOOS AS THEY ARE HARSH ON A PUPPY'S SKIN..
WE RECOMMEND BIO-GROOM PRODUCTS… WE USE OATMEAL & ALOE… NO SCRUBBING, JUST LIGHT RUB AND RINSE

6        NAILS SHOULD BE TRIMMED EVERY 7-10 DAYS TO KEEP THEM SHORT AND PROPER… WE USE A DREMMEL; WITH SANDING WHEEL…NO
CLIPPERS… THIS WAY THE EDGES OF THE NAIL ARE NOT SHARP AND SCRATCHY.

7        TEETH SHOULD BE BRUSHED EVERY FEW DAYS TO PREVENT PLAQUE AND TARTAR BUILDUP…HAVE YOUR VET CHECK THEM ONCE A YEAR
OR WHENEVER NECESSARY… HAVE THEM CLEANED IF NECESSARY BY YOUR VET.

                                                                      VACCINATIONS

8        YOUR PUPPY WILL HAVE RECEIVED ALL THE REQUIRED VACCINATIONS BEFORE YOU GET HIM OR HER.  WORMING HAS BEEN DONE.  RABIES
SHOTS ARE DUE ANY TIME BETWEEN 3 AND 6 MONTHS OF AGE

9        YOU SHOULD VACCINATE AGAINST LYME DISEASE…ESPECIALLY IF IT IS PREVALENT IN YOUR AREA OR YOU TRAVEL WITH YOUR PET. (IT’S A
2 SHOT START, THEN A BOOSTER ONCE A YEAR)

10        ALSO CHECK WITH YOUR VET ABOUT HEART WORM AND FLEA AND TICK CONTROL… FOR FLEA AND TICKS THERE ARE MANY GOOD
PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET…BOTH TOPICAL AND INTERNAL…FOLLOW YOUR VETS RECOMMENDATIONS

                                                                      TOYS

11        YOU CAN GIVE YOUR PUPPY THE TOYS OF YOUR CHOICE…WE RECOMMEND NYLA BONES, SOFT LATEX SQUEAK TOYS,  OR LATEX RUBBER
BALLS AND HARD RUBBER TOYS…WATCH THE PLUSH CLOTH TOYS WITH FOAM FILL…IF THEY CHEW A HOLE IN IT…TAKE IT AWAY THEY WILL EAT
THE FOAM (NOT GOOD!)… ROPE TOYS ARE ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR “TUG OF WAR” AND ALL AROUND PLAY, BUT IF THEY GET FRAYED…TAKE
THEM AWAY SO YOUR PUPPY CAN'T EAT IT!!! … NO TENNIS BALLS!!!

                                                      THE “DON’TS” FOR YOUR PUPPY

12        DON’T GIVE CHEW HOOVES TO YOUR PUPPY…DOGS HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO SWALLOW THEM WHOLE AND CHOKE TO DEATH ON THEM OR
SWALLOW A BROKEN PIECE WITH THE SAME RESULT…(AN OCCASIONAL PIGS EAR IS OK BUT DON’T OVERDO IT)

13        IF YOU GIVE THEM RAWHIDE BONES OR SHEETS TAKE THEM AWAY WHEN THEY BECOME SOFT OR RAGGED… YOU DON’T WANT THEM TO
SWALLOW THEM WHOLE… USE ONLY UNDER CLOSE SUPERVISION

14        DON’T ALLOW THEM TO CHEW ON YOUR FOAM FILLED CUSHIONS AND PILLOWS…THEY WILL IF YOU LET THEM… THE RESULTS COULD BE
DISASTROUS!

15        DON’T FORGET TO “PUPPY PROOF” YOUR HOME… PUT ITEMS OUT OF HIS REACH THAT YOU DON’T WANT HIM TO CHEW WHEN YOUR BACK
IS TURNED!

16        DON’T FORGET TO SHOWER YOUR PUPPY WITH ALL THE LOVE AND ATTENTION YOU CAN POSSIBLY GIVE

                                                      THE “DO’S” FOR YOUR PUPPY

17        GIVE YOUR PUPPY ALL THE TRAINING YOU CAN…THIS CAN AND SHOULD INCLUDE OBEDIENCE TRAINING…THE MORE TRAINING HE HAS, THE
MORE YOU WILL ENJOY EACH OTHER.

18        CRATE TRAIN YOUR PUPPY… YOU WILL WANT TO “STEP OUT” FOR A FEW MINUETS ONCE IN AWHILE AND YOU WANT YOUR PUPPY TO
REMAIN SAFE AND SECURE WHILE YOU’RE GONE… YOU DON’T WANT HIM TO “GET INTO EVERYTHING” WHILE YOU’RE GONE!….BY THE
WAY…NEVER USE THE CRATE AS “PUNISHMENT”… IT WILL BE VERY DETRIMENTAL TO HIM.

19        TAKE YOUR PUPPY TO AS MANY PUBLIC PLACES AS YOU CAN…KEEP HIM SOCIAL WITH BOTH PEOPLE AND OTHER ANIMALS… IT’S VERY
IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR PET SOCIALIZED!

20         CALL US IF YOU NEED ANY ADVICE OR SUGGESTIONS THAT WILL HELP YOU OUT!

                                                              EAR POSTING

21         YOU HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED ON THE EAR POSTING PROCESS... IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR NEED ASSISTANCE CALL US AND WE'LL
BE GLAD TO GIVE YOU FURTHER HELP.... FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF SYNOPSIS OF OUR EAR POSTING METHOD:

                                               EAR POSTING INSTRUCTIONS

OBTAIN ½” STYROFOAM PIPE INSULATION FROM ANY HOME SUPPLY OR HARDWARE STORE… MEASURE FROM THE POCKET TO THE TIP OF THE
EAR…CUT SECTION FROM THAT TO THE LENGTH OF EAR YOU’RE GOING TO POST…THIS WILL GIVE YOU A LARGE ROUND LENGTH FROM WHICH
YOU WILL SLICE A PIECE LENGTHWISE ABOUT ½” THICK… YOU CAN GET SEVERAL POSTS FROM ONE LENGTH OF INSULATION…. ALSO OBTAIN
FROM ANY CRAFT STORE POPSICKLE STICKS…. OBTAIN FROM A MEDICAL SUPPLY STORE OSTEOBOND OR SKIN BOND GLUE…. OR JUST USE
WHAT WE SUPPLY YOU WITH

LAY THE CUT PIECE OF FOAM FLAT WITH THE ROUNDED EDGE ON THE TABLE… CUT 2 PIECES OF ½” OR 1” ZONAS POROUS OR OTHER MEDICAL
TAPE ABOUT 1” LONGER THAN THE PIECE OF FOAM… LAY THE ROUNDED EDGE OF THE FOAM ON THE FIRST PIECE OF TAPE SO IT STICKS TO
THE STICKY SIDE OF THE TAPE AND BOTH ENDS ARE COVERED… PLACE A POPSICKLE STICK ON THE TOP SIDE OF THAT PIECE OF FOAM SO IT IS
APPROXIMATELY 1” FROM ONE END OF THE FOAM AND CAN COVER THE REST OF THE FOAM BUT NOT TO PROTRUDE PAST THE FOAM… YOU
MAY HAVE TO TRIM THE STICK… TAKE THE OTHER PIECE OF TAPE AND COVER THE TOP HALF OF THE FOAM AND STICK… ROLL THE TAPE SO IT
COMPLETELY COVERS THE FOAM AND STICK… TRIM THE ENDS OF THE TAPE SO IT IS SMOOTH…ESPECIALLY ON THE END TO BE INSERTED INTO
THE EAR POCKET… THEN YOU WILL GLUE THE ROUNDED EDGE OF THE POST LEAVING THE END OF THE POST WHERE THERE IS NO STICK
WITHOUT GLUE… THIS END OF THE STICK WILL BE INSERTED INTO THE POCKET OF THE EAR WITH THE STICK OUT AND THE GLUED SIDE OF THE
STICK AGAINST THE GLUE OF THE EAR…

NEXT YOU WILL TAKE YOUR OSTEOBOND GLUE AND RUN A STRIP OF GLUE UP THE MIDDLE OF THE INSIDE OF THE EAR FROM THE LITTLE BUTTON
TO THE TIP OF THE EAR. MAKE SURE YOU STRETCH THE EAR UP WHEN INSERTING THE POST TO MAKE IT STAND CORRECTLY… REPEAT THE
PROCESS ON THE OTHER EAR…

CUT 3 LENGTHS OF TAPE… ONE ABOUT 3” LONG TO BE WRAPPED AROUND THE BASE SO THAT  THE POST IS HELD TO THE POST BUT NOT SO
TIGHTLY AS TO CUT OFF CIRCULATION… ONE ANBOUT 2” LONG TO BE WRAPPED AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE POST (NOT TOO TIGHTLY) AND
ONE ABOUT 1 ½” TO BE WRAPPED ART THE TIP OF THE EAR… REPEAT THE PROCESS FOR THE OTHER EAR..

CUT A LENGTH OF TAPE APPROXIMATELY 10” LONG AND ¼ TO ½” WIDE… HOLD ONE EAR UP STRAIT AND WRAP THE TAPE AROUND JUST ABOVE
THE BASE AND STICK IT TO THE TAPE AS IT WRAPS… HOLD THE OTHER EAR UP SO IT IS ABOUT THE WIDTH OF THE HEAD APART FROM THE
OTHER AND STRETCH THE BRIDGE TAPE AROUND IT AND AROUND AND BACK TO THE OTHER EAR SO THE STICKY SIDES OF THE TAPE ARE
TOGETHER… THE EARS SHOULD THEN BE ERECT AND APART APPROXIMATELY THE WIDTH OF THE HEAD…

WHEN PROPERLY POSTED THE EARS WILL NEITHER TIP IN NOR OUT… AS THE PUPS EARS GAIN STRENGTH HE WILL BE ABLE TO WORK HIS EARS
AND THE BRIDGE TAPE WILL BEND IN THE MIDDLE LETTING YOU KNOW HE IS GAINING STRENGTH… LEAVE POSTED APPROXIMATELY 7-10 DAYS
WITH EACH POSTING… BY THEN THE GLUE WILL HAVE WORN FROM THE EAR AND YOU WILL NEED TO TAKE THEM DOWN AND REPOST… YOU
SHOULD LET THE EARS BREATHE FOR A FEW HOURS AFTER EACH POSTING AND CLEAN THEM THOROUGHLY BETWEEN EACH POSTING…

IF A POST POPS OUT AT THE BASE YOU CAN JUST STRETCH THE EAR UP AND REINSERT THE POST AT THE BASE… THE POSTS CAN BE REDONE IN
LESS THAN THE 7-10 DAYS IF THEY BECOME VERY DIRTY OR DESTROYED FROM PLAYING…

ONCE THE EARS ARE NEARLY FINISHED WITH THE POSTING PROCESS THEY MAY NEED A LITTLE EXTRA HELP BUT NOT QUITE A FULL POSTING…
WHEN THIS OCCURS YOU CAN FINISH THE PROCESS BY APPLYING A BREETHRITE STRIP UP THE MIDDLE OF THE INSIDE OF THE EAR… DO THIS BY
APPLYING A STRIP OF GLUE UP THE MIDDLE OF THE INSIDE OF THE EAR FROM THE BUTTON UP TO THE TIP… APPLY A THIN LAYER OF GLUE TO
THE STICKY SIDE OF THE BREETHRITE STRIP AND WHEN TACKY APPLY IT TO THE INSIDE OF THE EAR… THIS WILL ALLOW IT TO STRENGTHEN
WITHOUT THE USE OF A FULL POST
