Having Shih Tzu puppy is not easy as you think especially when we talk about taking good care of it. And to be able to meet such obligations to our puppies, it needs a lot of money. The first thing that we need to do is to complete the 5 vaccines require that cost more than 500 pesos to make sure that your Shih Tzu puppy will grow healthy and to avoid sickness. Puppies are weak when they are still young specially in he first and second months so the injections or vaccines helps her to be strong and be able to live long. After that, you need to buy vitamins to be taken by your puppy and especially the prescribed dog food is recommended other than foods taken by human. Grooming and a lot of checkups followed. Very expensive right?. To avoid such thing, try doing this.
Taking care of your Shih Tzu puppy in the most simplest and affordable way.
After you read my article in ALL ABOUT SHIH TZU you found out that my Shih Tzu puppy is my first pet that is why I do everything for her. On the first five months, I followed everything that is prescribed by the veterinarian because I thought it is the right thing. I spent thousands just for the checkups and vaccine. Foods, toys, vitamins, treats, eating utensils and a lot more is also added to my expenses. But I am not bother with that because what I think is only for the best of my pet. Lately, we adopt the common way of treating a toy dog in convenient way. For you to be able to save money:
Taking Bath- Instead of using dog shampoo and other conditioner that cost 500 pesos each, try human shampoo like Palmolive with VCO.
Blow dry- What’s unique with the Shih Tzu is their hair tat grows long and can be able to brush and tie up like human. When the hair is still wet, dry it with a towel and blow dry it while brushing to avoid tangles. Make sure that every part must be dry because it can affect the other part. THIS IS IMPORTANT!- Do not let your puppy dry in front of electric fan or else it will cause pneumonia and your puppy will be confined. If that happens, it is not recommended that your puppy will be pregnant or else it will just turn into waste because the baby will not be develop. It need months and years to rest before letting her to be stud. In case where it is already in the risk stage, the vagina is needed to be removed or it will be the cause of death.
Bow tie-You need to tie the hair of your Shih Tzu puppy especially on the upper part of the eyes because if you dont do anything about it and let the hair get into the eyes, then it will cause blindness.
Brushing- You need to rush the hair of your Shih Tzu every time to avoid tangles. Whiskers are also need to brush because it easily get dirty whenever she eats. Cornstarch is also helpful in avoiding tangles.
Yakult- 0.5ml of Yakult should be taken by you puppy when she is experiencing constipation.
Water- water must be sterilized.
Food- I recommend Hollistic dog food for your dog because it helps the hair be shine and stay your dog healthy.
Exercise- Your puppy needs to be exercised. This can be done through bringing her together with you while walking or jogging outside.
These are some of the basic needs and process on how to take good care of your Shih Tzu puppy.
Try to apply it and enjoy bonding with you puppy.
