Important Health Issues
This is just a medical awareness, anyone purchasing a puppy should be aware of this parasite, it lives in almost every dog or puppy. Coccidia are tiny parasites that live in the cells of a dog's intestines. IT IS VERY COMMON in dogs/puppies to have this parasite and when a dog/puppy is stressed (such as moving to a new home, shots, worming, shipping, etc.)this parasite may surface. So basically the puppy can leave my home showing no signs at all, even be negative by doing a fecal exam, then show signs a few days later at their new home.
Symptoms: Loose stools, usually with blood or mucus, but not always. Coughing, acting depressed, not eating or drinking. Sleeping a lot more than a normal puppy should, lifeless and getting worse by the hour.
Treatment: Usually 10 days on Albon or other type of sulfa drug.
Even though all puppies need to be socialized at an early age, it is best to avoid taking your pup to the park, walks in the neighborhood, or around other unknown pets until it has been fully vaccinated and had a fully developed immune system(16 weeks of age). Until your new puppy has a full set of vaccinations, its immune system is not properly equipped to handle diseases. Your puppy could easily get worms, parovirus, Coccidia from contaminated feces or ground. I have made every effort to insure that your puppy will not be exposed to any disease. Unfortunately, these diseases can live in stray animal feces and on the ground for many day, even years and can be easily transmitted to a puppy.
Symptoms: Symptoms could very widely, depending on which disease your puppy has come in contact with. Depression, vomiting, diarrhea, blood, mucus in stools, breathing problems, tender belly or swollen belly.
Treatment: Seek veterinary treatment IMMEDIATELY if your puppy has come in contact with any of these diseases as they can possibly cause death in your puppy. Of course, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Avoid contact with other animals and unknown places prior to full vaccination of your puppy. Have those people who handle your puppy wash their hands before handling. Since parvo can also be carried on the bottom of your shoes, it is a good idea to keep shoes that you wear outdoors from contacting any area where the puppy sleeps or plays.
Bulldogs can overheat very easily. They need to be in a controlled climate(indoors). Occasional breaks in the backyard are okay, just keep them as brief as possible. Always make sure they have adequate fresh drinking water to keep hydrated. Limit exercise, playtime and exertion levels during those hot days.
Health Program for Puppies
Puppies are on NuVet Plus vitamins starting the day they are conceived and continue to get this daily vitamin.
Each puppy receives deworming at 2, 3, 4 & 6 weeks of age. They receive pyrantel pamoate.
At 4 weeks a series of Albon is administered for 10 days. This is to help prevent the development of Coccidia which is common in puppies. Puppies can have coccidia develop, even when there are no signs of it. Coccidia if treated is nothing to worry about, but when unknown or unseen vet testing, it can cause a young puppy all kinds of illness and trouble.
At 5 weeks the puppies are treated with Metronidazole to help prevent the treat of Giardia. Although Giardia is a puppy illness which threatens all pups in their young age.
At 6 weeks the puppies get their first puppy shots.
We want your puppy experience to be an experience that is happy and fun, not one that is taking you to the vet on a daily basis !!
