We also start our puppies on a good All Natural Nutritional Diet plan. Do your research when choosing a good Nutritional food for you puppy. The first 2-4 ingredients are very important when choosing a food, whether it be for a Puppy or an Adult. Grains are fillers. Your dogs food should not contain Corn, Wheat or Wheat Gluten. There are plenty of websites that can give you more information on the foods and what to choose. Do your research or ask the person that you are getting your puppy from. Nutrition is vital in your puppies life stages in growing.
We are presently feeding Nutrisource dog food. I have been more than pleased with this food. If you would like to read more info on the food that we recommend click on the link...
We want the best for our Adults/Puppies when it comes to Nutrition and we know that you also
want the best for your new puppy. Your puppy depends on you when it comes to their Health & Happiness. In most cases dog foods will not provide them with some of the Nutrition that they need in their growing years. We start all of our puppies on a All Natural Supplement.
NuVet Labs™ main purpose is to help increase your pet's longevity and quality of life. Our products, NuVet Plus™ for Canines provide the very best human-grade, natural ingredients available and utilize the latest advances in medical, veterinary and nutritional science. We pledge to adhere to the highest standards in products and services. Our goal is to maintain a lasting and caring relationship with our family of NuVet Plus™ customers and their pets they love.
Our scientists, veterinarians and formulators began with the premise that most pet diets are lacking the proper amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. There are important nutrients that animals once received when they were living in a more primitive environment that are not available in the modern diet. Commercial pet foods contain numerous by-products that can make them poisonous, toxic and incapable of reducing the devastating effects of unstable oxygen molecules, also known as "free radicals." Free radicals have been implicated in more than fifty health problems in humans and animals including various forms of cancer, heart disease, arthritis, cataracts and premature aging.
After extensive testing with many different combinations of ingredients, our scientists formulated NuVet Plus™. We believe, based on the most current medical, veterinarian and nutritional reports, NuVet Plus™ will combat the onslaught of free radicals in our companion pets. This unique formula consists of precise amounts of vitamins, minerals and high-potency antioxidants that when combined, create a synergistic and powerful boost to the immune system.
I will be adding other links that may help you with questions & answers. But, we are always here to answer any questions that you may have.
***** Many different drugs and drug classes have been reported to cause problems in Collies and other herding bred dogs that carry the MDR1 mutation.
Aussies and other herding types (Collies, Border Collies ans Shelties) can have certain drug sensitivities.
Aussies should never be given any type of drug below.
***** Please note Heartguard is on the list and can cause seizures in aussies.
***** Never give Heartguard to an Aussie, choose Interceptor instead.
Also note, not all vets are familiar with this list or the MDR1 mutation.
DRUG NO NO'S
Drugs that have been documented, or are strongly suspected to cause problems in dogs with MDR1 mutation:
* Ivermectin (antiparasitic agent) "Heartguard"
* Loperamide (Imodium; over the counter antidiarrheal agent)
* Doxorubicin (anticancer agent)
* Vincristine (anticancer agent)
* Vinblastine (anticancer agent)
* Cyclosporin (immunosuppressive agent)
* Digoxin (heart drug)
* Acepromazine (tranquilizer)
* Butorphanol (pain control)
All puppies are sent home with a Swab Kit for the MDR1 Test. This is very simple and either you or your Vet can do this swab test. I encourage all new families to have this test done if you have question as to whether your new puppy carries this mutation.
" An Ounce of Prevention, is worth a Pound of Cure "
Your new puppy deserves the best start in life...We are here to help you start your puppy on the
right path with a Healthy Nutrition.
Having a new puppy is kinda like bringing a new baby home... They are both helpless and dependent

Please do your research on the FOOD & TREATS that you choose for your pets! There have been ALOT of recalls on our food/treats for our pets this year.
ALL of our dogs are tested or cleared by parentage in our breeding program for CERF, PRA, HC, DM, MDR1, HIPS Cleared by Parentage means that both of the parents were clear on their testings, so their offsprings would be clear as well. If we have any question of testings, we have our dogs tested with GenSol and PawPrints Genetics.
