New Puppy, Now What?

A puppy can be a great addition to any family. They are fun, cute, and wonderful companions. However, here at Casillas Veterinary Hospital, serving Montebello, Lynwood, and East Los Angeles, we also understand that puppies are a huge responsibility. Before you bring your new puppy home, there are a few things that you will need to do to prepare for their arrival.

Food and Dishes

It is best to buy your pet food designed specifically for puppies. Puppy food is easier on the stomach and teeth than adult food. When buying dishes, you should make sure that the bowl isn’t too large for the puppy.

Potty Training

When it comes to potty training, you will need a few items. First, you will need a leash and a collar to take your puppy outside. If you are planning to crate train your puppy, you will need a crate that is large enough for them to be comfortable. You should also get a package of puppy pads to prevent accidents. Finally, you should research how to potty train a puppy.

Toys

When a puppy gets bored, they can become destructive. If you don’t want to come home to find that your puppy has chewed up your shoes or furniture, you should make sure they have toys to keep them busy. It is best to choose toys that are specifically designed for puppies to ensure that they won’t choke on the toys.

Find a Veterinarian 

Before bringing your pet home, you will need to find an animal hospital to take them to. Not only will they need an appointment for their first shots, but they will also need to see the veterinarian for regular check-ups. If there is an emergency, you will want to have a regular vet who knows your puppy.
