How to feed a puppy
Brought into the house, a puppy from the first day requires a lot of care and attention. Torn away from maternal affection, warmth and milk, the baby feels lonely and helpless. Therefore, it is necessary to create the most favorable situation for it. And then you will be convinced of the justice of the above proverb, but, most importantly, you will bring up a strong and cheerful pet who will pay you a hundredfold.

The place should be kept clean – systematically shake out and periodically wash the litter, wipe the floor with a damp cloth.

For the prevention of rickets, they give a little fish oil or vitamins A and D from 2 to 10 drops per day, mixing them in food. During the period of teeth growth, they make sure that small objects (buttons, plastic boxes for medicines, etc.) do not lie on the floor, and also lift all electrical and other wires, curtain ends, curtains.
