Wheaten & Schnauzer Food Guide
Our puppies are checked before they go home for worms, coccidia, and giardia. Even though we test, we ask that you also have your pup tested as soon as you can make your first vet appointment. Some of these parasites are not always in every stool.

Drinking Water Quality for your Puppy
Poor quality drinking water (well water in a country setting as well as tap water in the city) can actually make your puppy sick and cause loose stools or even diarrhea. Both will cause dehydration, which leads to loss of appetite – which leads to low blood sugar levels - repeat after me – which leads to Hypoglycemia! At times there is to much chlorine in City Water for your new Puppy. Provide Clean, Filtered Drinking Water!
Offering "clean" drinking water to your pup – filtered by a house, faucet or fridge filtration system. Be sure to allow the pup access to water 24/7 - free choice - the same as with its puppy food!
