New Lurcher puppy

Recommended Posts

Hi, we picked up our beautiful lurcher pup Tez yesterday and to say she has settled in straight away is an understatement (although a 5am start to the day is something I'll need to get used to again). She has come used to a diet of tinned food and Asda dry complete which I want to wean her off and get her on to something decent and better for her to give her the best start in life. What do you all recommend? She is going to have a very active life although she is a pet rather than a purely working dog. At this stage (8 weeks) how many times a day do you recommend I feed her and how much? I have had dogs before but I k ow all breeds are different. I want to do my best for this gorgeous little girl so look to the expertise out there for advice. Thanks in advance

4 times a day ,and get it wormed as well.dont take their word for it.

forgot to say small meals handful of biscuit a time,try and give it some raw meat as well.

Myself I used to get the pup in settle it then take it to vets for its first jab after a week so not to stress it out to much by having a new home then getting a needle stuck in it,

sometimes that's why I think it's better to have a pup at 6/7 weeks ,give them week or 2 to settle and get to know you before taking them to the vets.

Hello and welcome mate , once you've got her settled and wormed try her on raw meat and a nice knuckle bone to  give her something to help with her teeth and relieve  the boredom
