Your pup’s immune system is not fully developed until he’s about 12 weeks old. To help protect him from several serious canine diseases, it’s crucial during this time to keep up with his vaccine schedule (his “puppy shots”) as recommended by your veterinarian. It’s also very important to keep him away from other dogs, and from areas where other dogs may have soiled the ground, until he’s 12 weeks old.
Resist giving your pup “people food,” but be sure to feed him four times a day with a high-quality puppy food that has the nutrients his growing body needs.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: We use Science Diet Puppy Little Bites for all of our puppies until they are 12-18 months old.
