Getting a Havanese Puppy Soon

Hello all!

I am getting a Havanese puppy in a few weeks. I used to groom a few Havanese puppies. While that helps with keeping them clean and fluffy, I am not quite so knowledgeable regarding other aspects. Such as food for a Havanese, what type of flea and tick preventative, etc. I aim to learn a lot from this forum to provide a healthy and happy environment for my Havanese.

It is best to find out what the breeder is feeding and start with that. In the mean time you can research other foods if you like. If you decide to switch you must do it by gradually mixing in a little of the new food with the old over a period of time. The amount of new food increases after you see that it is tolerated by your dog over a period of days. If you go too fast you will end up with an upset GI system! I would discuss your flea, tick, and heartworm options with your vet. There may be products that are not as effective in different areas of the country.

Hi Bibliophile and welcome to the forum. I am a first time Havanese owner and can't offer much advice. Best of luck to you with your new puppy!
