    Do you have the ability to order online? Is there a tractor supply company near you (they carry many brands of dog food)? What is your price range (per month) for dog food?

    I also wanted to add that if you feed a low quality kibble you could end up paying more in vet bills over the corse of your dogs life.

    A injection for what?
    How old are you? Judging by your Jonas brothers avatar your pretty young and this should be something your parents deal with..

    we have had that problem in the past and Mackeral juice from the can (which you can get at the grocery store, it's near the tuna and salmon) and pedialyte worked everytime! Hope that helps!

    You don't need to give a puppy supplements. Just quality kibble

    Sooooooooo is the pup 4 weeks old or 4 months old. There is a big difference

    Puppies (and dogs) fairly usually have parasites, which most be eliminated in order for your puppy to stay strong and healthy. Have a stool sample checked by your veterinarian as soon as you get your new pet.

    Look for a pet planet or some type of pet store that doesn't sell pets (those often will carry good quality food) I would recomment Acana, Origen, NOW, Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods most anything in this link.

    In reference of not being able to afford a premium food. It should run you around 80 - 100$ a month for kibble. For a good quality food. This is taking into consideration Acana that is made close to me so is cheaper to buy but one of the best foods around. I do NOT feed this to my 6 year lab/pit or to my 11 week pit puppy but did have my labX on when she was a pup. It does not sit well with my new pup and the adult did not sit well with my lab when i switched from puppy BUT my shih-tzu and cats are on it. I AM LOW INCOME WITH 4 KIDS. I am on medical disibilty and do not get much money especially whe n you factor in feeding 4 boys and the animals I have and I still make it work to feed my animals a quality food. A good way to look at it is pet chow or a grocery store brand is FULL of cancer and other health related causing preservatives and fillers. It is like consistently feeding your pet McDonalds or the like.

    Even if you could cut it half and half that would be something. Or see what you can cut out on a daily or monthly basis to be able to afford a premium food. It will be worth it in the long run. Your animal will %wise be healthier, less vet visits and feel better, be happier.

    So my 4 month old puppy Gags or hacks sometimes, like he has something suck in his throat. I don't know if its him teething and his gums are bleeding or allergies.
    I don't think it is a serious condition because he still has an appitite and energy as normal. Help.

    Do you play tug with the pup using a blanket? I have noticed that sometimes fibers get loose from blankets or other "material" like items that the dog puts in its mouth...then sometimes after playtime gags and hacks up saliva onto the floor.
