The first thing you do when you bring a puppy home is to take him to the vet. The vet will examine your pet and make sure he or she is not exhibiting any signs of common illnesses that puppies are prone to. Your vet will also give your pet preliminary vaccinations and then give you a vaccination schedule that you should follow diligently. Make sure that you do not walk your puppy to the vet but carry them or take them in a safe vehicle. Meeting other dogs at this stage is risky as your pup has not been immunized against anything. Your pet could pass on disease to the other dog or vice versa. You should keep your pet away from other animals until all their vaccinations are complete. Puppyhood requires a pet parent's watchful eye. They have immune systems that are not yet as strong as those of adult dogs.

This is why they are susceptible to a number diseases including lethal ones like distemper and parvo virus. It is for this reason that we do not recommend that you take your puppy out on the street for walks until they have been given all their vaccinations. Even at home, do not let them, put their heads in the dustbin or eat anything that they shouldn't. Given a chance, your puppy is likely to eat anything. So, be extra watchful to make sure they are not gobbling down things that may get stuck in their throats or cause internal blocks. They could also pick up extremely dangerous diseases like parvo virus from the garbage. Keep a close eye on your puppy, if he or she is refusing to eat, shivering or seems lethargic, rush them to the vet right away.
