We hope that you will enjoy your puppy for years to come. We have taken steps to ensure that your new puppy is healthy by feeding a premium quality food and we have introduced your puppy a raw food diet.
We Believe that a raw food (uncooked) diet is of paramount importance in the health of our dogs.
We hope you will continue with this diet for the health and longevity of your new puppy.
The results of this diet are a silky coat, beautiful white teeth without the need for constant Veterinary cleanings, and a proper trim physique.
Additionally we ask you to consider following the NEW MINIMAL VACCINATION Protocols after your puppy has received the initial series of puppy vaccinations.
This will consist of yearly blood Titers to check continuing immunity RATHER than automatic “Boosters.” The cost of these titers is virtually the same as the shots; however you will spare your dog from the possible side effects (cancer and allergic reactions) of continuing over vaccinations . Rabies vaccinations are mandated by state law and your pup must be vaccinated to comply with this law. We suggest the 3 year Rabies vaccine
As this reduces the number of times your dog must be exposed to this harmful procedure.
