Tips about HEALTH

Normally, except for accidental exceptions, the puppy is suckled by the mother until its first 6 weeks of life. It is very important that this is the case for future defenses and its development. From 6/8 weeks, a puppy feed can be introduced as a complement to breastfeeding until 10/12 weeks. The size of the grains of these feed are designed by the manufacturers according to the size of the puppies and the breed. Corresponding the average size to the Gos d'Atura Català. It is essential to keep this in mind to avoid any possible suffocation if the grain is too large.
When the puppy moves into her new home, she should receive the same puppy food that she received from the breeder to avoid a sudden change in her diet. A gradual mixing of the feed would be advisable if you want to change brands. The advisable distribution would be 3 servings a day until completing the first 7 or 8 months of life. The food should be puppy food until approximately 8 months. From then on you can change it to an adult and feed it 2 times a day. Pay attention to the composition of the feed when you buy it. The food must contain enough proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals such as calcium and vitamins. The proportion of the individual ingredients must also be correct.
We recommend quality feed over low-priced ones due to their obvious better composition.
Always have clean water at disposal, avoiding, as far as possible, outdoor areas where bees or mosquitoes can proliferate that can transmit diseases or stings.

Some of the toxic foods that you should avoid giving your dog are: avocado, chocolate, cocoa, onions, grapes, raisins, caffeine.

Of course, we can always moderately reward their good behavior with something to chew or a special cookie for pets.


The Veterinary Association recommends vaccination according to the disease and the age of the dog as shown in the following scheme.

Keep in mind that the rabies vaccine is not mandatory in all autonomous communities, but it is in other countries. Keep it in mind for trips and / or vacations.
The bitch is dewormed before the puppies are born. The puppies are then dewormed from day 25 and then approximately every three weeks. From now on it would be advisable for puppies and adults to always be dewormed every 3 months. The tablets are inexpensive and can be administered mixed with food or as treats.
Very important for the prevention of flea and tick infestation. We find solutions in the market in the form of necklaces, pipettes, sprays and pills. Always take into account the manufacturer's prescription for use in young puppies and other exceptions. It is also advisable to prevent the mosquito bite that transfers the Leishmania parasite. We recommend exploring the dog weekly to ensure that these parasites do not adhere, especially in good weather in spring and summer. If we see that the protection administered is insufficient, we can reinforce it with a spray in agreement with our veterinarian.
