Things you'll need-- (there are times we will change their dry food if a pup won't eat it)
Nutro-ultra for small breed puppy's (I will give you enough for a week) This is a tiny dry kibble.
Fresh pet, select. This is a refrigerated, rolled food, sold at Kroger, Petco and Walmart. I will also send some home with you.
Kefir- is a yogurt in a drink form, sold at Walmart and usually Food Lion grocery stores. It only comes in a larger size. but still only a few dollars. This is good to help prevent stress on the digestion system that comes from change. Change can be stressful and cause the bacteria coccidia. They do like strawberry flavored Kefir.. You can just put some on your finger and put it in their mouths. It has strains of probiotics that other yogurts do not have and can help prevent coccidia. And even alleviate symptoms if diagnosed with coccidia, before the medicine can ever begin to work. (you can refer to coccidia section of my site for more info..)
