Puppies and Progress

Hello Fellow Boxer Lovers!

Note from the Breeder: (she said it so well I just copied and pasted! LOL)

" Hi Everyone!

Just a few quick notes for everyone. All the puppies are doing great! Thy are growing so quickly now that the "baby" bands had to be changed 2x a week so for now their identifying collars are "kitty collars" bell less I might add lol.

They have been introduced to soft foods this week to get them a greater variety of diet. Not that "mommy's milk" isn't doing the job but after almost 3 weeks she needs a break from the "chow line" now and then.

Of course, it has become obvious who the "boys" are they are starting to get a little heavier than the "girls", but those girls can hold their own when it comes to getting some dinner.

Their first de-worming will be Sunday to insure no problems, this is standard procedure. As well as, @ 6 weeks and 8 weeks. Also their first vaccination will be @ 8 weeks. For those who do not have their own vet now is the time to "shop" around and find one you like. They will need a vaccination @ 12 weeks and again @ 16 weeks, followed up by a rabies @ 4-6 months.

Food, very important, they will go home on a diet of Nutro Max, this food can be found at Petco or Petsmart. If you do not have one of these stores in your area you may need to check your local pet/feed store to see if they also might have it. A 35# bag runs $25.99 but sometimes lower at the bigger stores. If you intend to change food be aware that if you do not gradually change their food over several weeks you could be headed for many sleep weary nights of taking puppy "potty" from upset tummy if switched right off to another food."

Have a Blessed Boxer Day!
