Please don't hesitate to contact me with any problems or questions, I have a lot of experience and can help you resolve most issues very inexpensively or point you in the right direction, especially before going to the vet! I‘m sure I’ve taken one of my dogs to the vet for the exact same thing and between my network, we can get you educated on the matter before your visit! Not all vets are created equal and you need to be the ambassador for your dog♥️This would include most anything.
The first 3 days after getting your new puppy are usually the most difficult time for the puppy! Stress from the move can start up some simple problems but they do need to be addressed!! You can sometimes expect the puppy to get low blood sugar or act a little lethargic, and its very simple to treat. Just give your puppy about 3 Tablespoons of DARK KERO SYRUP, having Nutri cal on hand is even better, you should see a difference in energy level and wanting to eat within 30 min. If your puppy has diarrhea that is pretty common for puppies to have and I will have packed some Zole for you; go a head and give for 3 days, regardless, to help with the stress of the move. Chances are your puppy will struggle with stress and runny poo, it is pretty important for you to have Zole on hand, chewy has it, zole will help you with runny poo. It's important to watch for vomiting, vomiting can be from parvo to having chewed and swallowed a toy that is stuck in them so its very important to go to vet! First thing the vet should do is a parvo test; your puppy will have received 2 neopar, one at 3 and 5 weeks plus a 5 way at 7 weeks and you wont be getting your puppy until 9 weeks of age so God willing your Parvo test will be negative! The best preventative on swallowing toys and socks is to keep house picked up and throw away toys that have started to show wear!! Please call or text me night or day in the event something like this is happening!
We are feeding Purina one smart blend large breed puppy food, we will add warm water to a 2 cup sized bowl along with tablespoon pumpkin stir it up and add a tablespoon of puppy canned. I feed them 2 times a day. You can offer them a total of 6 cups of food a day throughout their life, get them on adult food at 12 weeks of age. Give her more food even though it says differently on package. If u feed them like package it makes them crazy for food. If you give them more they don’t care about it. Also dogs need a quality grain, don’t do the grain free, fad diet. I chose purina because they spend millions on research and development and they have only had a couple limited recalls. I have tried all the other foods and fads and always go back to Purina , I’ve been doing this sense 2007. I have people tell me they fed this and their dogs have lived 15 and 17 years and I also have had no issues feeding this food.
At 12 weeks of age you need to start switching him over to adult food, you can mix any left over puppy 50 / 50 with the adult until it is gone. This is to control growing to fast and by doing this along with limiting exercise for first 2 years you are helping to insure your dog lives a more physically fit long life. Also, it is recommended to wait at least 2 years before getting the puppy spayed or neutered! This helps in the different leg bones growing at same rate. The dogs need their hormones!
Do not change your puppies diet right away after getting him, this will help the puppy maintain his solid poo!!!! Wait 10 days before getting vaccinations!! Your first visit to vet is a puppy wellness and no shots should be given! It’s an opportunity for you to introduce your puppy to vet and your vet to teach And help you with your new friend. Vet will do a fecal and this is an important visit!! Get rabies shot on a different day as other vaccines, and only get the 1 year rabies! I will gladly help you with anything that comes up!! We have spent hours with these guys and have become emotionally attached to them before you get him and we want them to have as easy transition as possible because we care about them!
Pumpkin is seeming to be a great substitute for these medications, I would try 100% canned pumpkin to my dry food see if that helps!!! I would strongly recommend having this Pro-Pectalin on hand!! In a crunch you can give Pepto-Bismol, teaspoon for every 10 lbs. It can be offered every 6 to 8 hours. It’s kind of natural for a puppy to have real soft stool but you need to watch for the lethargic puppy and don’t let him get dehydrated. Call or text
**It is very important to get your puppy off puppy food at 12 weeks!! Your vet probably will not have heard of this but you can google it or get on some golden forums to learn more. Having the biggest, fattest golden retriever may be cute but it is not in the best interest of the dog!! Puppy food and high protein dog foods make your puppy grow too fast causing growth issues!! If your puppy continues to get fat on adult you then will need to feed him less food. At 12 Weeks we are feeding 6 cups of adult a day, that needs to be watched; if he is getting too thin feed him more and too fat feed him less. Take pictures and evaluate his weight every Sunday, its not easy maintaining a dogs weight but it is very worth it!!**
Lots of times at the age between 4 and 8 months the puppy will have a pretty big growth spurt and will be pretty uncomfortable and even limp. This can go on for quite a while and the best thing you can do for him is to continue feeding the quality adult dog food, manage his weight(now and throughout life), limit activity, joint supplements are great, dont let him run up and down the steps and jump off furniture. You really just need to wait this out and let him grow!! Swimming is a great activity for them!

As far as collars go I like to use a slip solid dog leash. reasons why is it is not safe to leave a collar on your dog when you aren't around and your puppy is going to be out growing collars very fast!
I would buy hard rubber toys and I would be afraid to leave cloth bedding in the crate with the puppy. The puppy can swallow one of the stuffed toys whole and get it stuck in their throat and intestines and they can chew bedding and have the same thing happen. I don't bath my goldens very often, I think it's hard on their skin. When I do, I make a bubble bath with dawn dish detergent and poor it over them and take a conditioner and comb through their coat while they are in the tub to get a lot of loose coat out! https://isbusa.com/product/honeycomb-ultra-greyhound-style-809/

Your puppy will be coming to you in the infant stage of life. Everything will be new to him! The long trip, new hours, new way food is prepared, no litter mates, new people! It’s going to be your job to introduce him to all of these news. He will need sleep, he will need you to teach him not to be food or toy or treat aggressive, especially if you have young children!! The puppy doesn’t need to have treats right away, that’s actually a lesson in its self! If he does something great just hearing how happy you are and getting petted is enough!! Remember how important you are to this new family member and do as much training research as you can while you wait for the big day🥰

You need a wire crate and a leash. Have him sleep in crate over night. Let him out emdeiatly when u wake up, u can’t do anything but wake up and run him outside. Just stand there like a statue until he goes to the bathroom and then tell him what a good boy he is. Then come back inside put him in the crate and give him his food and water. 30 minutes later let him out and stand like a statue wate for him to poo and pee and tell him what a good boy he is. When you feed him give him a large bowl and let him eat what he needs and then that’s it for the day.
anytime you take him out of crate or arrive home you take him immediately outside and stand like a statue tell he goes potty. Then in the house have him on a leash and have him follow you around and this way you can catch him if he starts to go potty. If he does scream and grab him and take him out side. Scream no like u r getting in a car wreck!!!! but when he is good be so nice and use the sweetest voice you have!!! You can feed and water him in the evening again…do it the exact same way …let out,statue,good boy put back in crate with food and water wait 30 minutes let out, statue,good boy!! Same thing everyday at as close to the same times as possible!!
