Common puppy problems usually occur within two (2) weeks after purchase. Most of these problems are stress related. Stress can occur when your puppy is taken into a new environment. Your puppy is in many ways like a child during his/her first weeks at a new school. Your puppy may look fine in the familiar surroundings of Just Puppies, but shortly after bringing the puppy home, stress related symptoms might arise. Just Puppies has compiled this list of “Common Puppy Problems” that should clear up quickly after you and your puppy get used to your new life together. These problems can occur no matter where a puppy was purchased and therefore are not subject to returns or refunds.

There are many viruses that can make puppies sick and some are even fatal. Nursing puppies get antibodies from their mother’s milk (maternal antibodies) that protect them from disease for the first few months of life, these antibodies begin to gradually decrease when the puppy reaches a few months of age. To protect the puppy’s health, incremental shots are administered to replace the lost protection.
