One of the most common questions we get from new puppy families is "what do I need to buy for my new puppy?". So we decided to put together a list of some of our favorite products that you can easily refer back to anytime, and we will continue to update this as we discover new useful and fun products for your pets!
NéVetica™ was referred to us by a trusted breeder friend so we decided to try out the products and have not looked back! We use the products for our adults, pregnant and nursing moms, and puppies. Their products are made in the US and certified by the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC).
A few of the must-haves are:
Wet-a-way (THIS IS A MUST FOR PUPPIES!): Without trying to sound dramatic, I swear this is a miracle product. We use it not only when we have puppies and are potty training, but anytime we need to clean up a liquid spill. This is a powder that you sprinkle on liquid spills, wait 45-60 seconds, and the liquid is absorbed into the powder and can be swept up with a broom. Think puppy accident, spilled drink, vomit, someone kicked ice cubes under the fridge instead of picking them up..... you know who you are. This is a must have in our house, and especially during "potty training season".
- The Multivitamin: for obvious reasons, it is always a good idea for your puppy or adult dog (or cat) to be supplemented with a multivitamin for the nutrients they may not be receiving from their food.
- Waterless Shampoo: Despite what most people think when bringing home a new puppy, they should not be bathed every few days or even weekly. By removing their natural oils often, it dries out their skin and coat and can cause irritation like itchiness, redness, and flaky skin. However, we all know pets (especially puppies) like to get dirty and stinky whenever possible. The waterless shampoo is a great alternative to frequent bathing in order to keep your pet fresh and clean (and sanitized), without drying out their skin and coat.
- Calming Support: A couple of our dogs are scared to death of thunderstorms and fireworks. They climb on top of us and just shake anytime its thundering or fireworks season. These treat-like chews have shown a huge improvement in their stress when storms roll in and they are finally able to relax a bit and sleep through it (meaning we finally can tool!)
I stand behind all of the NéVetica™ products, and we use several others like the Anti-Itch spray for our little Yorkie-mix's allergy issues, Paw Protector for cracked paws, chapped noses, long walks, or cold/dry weather, Skin & Coat chew to keep everyone looking their best, and the dental chew for stinky breath (particularly the mamas when they have puppies!)
*I usually place a bulk order of NéVetica™ products when we have puppies going home so that you can get products at a discounted price. If you would like to order any of the products, let me know and I can add them to the bulk order!
