How to take care of 3-months Beagle puppy? Today we will try to give you answers on this important issue.
Appearance and Feeding
Healthy Beagle puppy in its 3 months should weigh about 6 kilos, and its size is approximately 30 cm height at the shoulder. A puppy with a sound health should have a silky and shining coat, clean and bright eyes. It should be active and do not refuse eating 4-5 times a day.
A daily diet for 3-months Beagle puppy should contain a significant amount of proteins – 55-60%, slightly more, than for 2-months puppy. The main source of proteins for a puppy is still read and white meat that should be fed slightly boiled: soft beef, veal, mutton, turkey meat and rabbit flesh without bones.
15-20% of an overall diet should consist of starches – the best source of “right” complex starches are in cereals. The best cereals for a Beagle’s puppy correct development are buckwheat and rice.
In 3 month dairy products still play a very significant role in a daily diet of a puppy. 35% of a puppy diet should be made of curds, yoghurt, cream and milk. One can mix curds with yoghurt, for example.
Fresh vegetables (carrot, cabbage, sugar beet, pumpkin) should contain 10-15% of a small Beagle daily diet that are able to enrich puppy’s body with some necessary vitamins, microelements and sugars.
Health and Care
Your 3-months Beagle puppy was vaccinated in 2.5 months, so, there is a high time for your puppy revaccination with the same vaccine to make its immune system resistible towards dangerous diseases.
The next immunization is planned when your puppy will be 6 months’ old. So, at this point, you should carefully check your 3-months Beagle’s health: protect it against ticks and fleas, each month treat it against worms, clean puppy’s ears and eyes with special cleaning solutions.
Take 4-5 walks a day in 30 minutes after each meal (for 10 minutes) and do not overstrain a puppy with active games. A walk before sleep should be the most long to provide your puppy with healthy sleep (15-20 minutes).
A puppy is still too young to undergo some special training which starts from 1 year, as a rule. You just can proceed with slightly breaking of the habit of relieving a puppy at home and do it outdoors. Another important thing is to proceed teaching a puppy a command “stop that!”, “don’t do that!” when it is going to do something unpleasant. Also, you should consolidate other basic commands like “sit!”, “heel!”, etc. in a playful manner.
3 months is the age during which a dog owner should be very responsible and responsive towards a puppy: well-balanced diet, frequent walks with moderate activity, in-time vet examinations and revaccination are very important during this period.
Take care of your Beagle puppy since the very beginning to make your dog sound and healthy.
