Hi. I’m looking for some advice.. My husband and I have recently adopted a 5 month old puppy and we have a 1.5 year old dog as well, and I just want some tips on how I can help both of them acclimate well in this transition period. Our older dog has always been an only dog in our household but is around other dogs constantly and loves them, always wanting to play but lately the seems to be having a hard time adjusting to sharing his space (and toys) with another dog.. I just want to make sure we’re doing the best by both of them. Thank you!
JA: Hi there. I'll do all I can to help. How long has the dog been dealing with this?
Customer: We adopted the puppy on Saturday, so it’s quite recently.
JA: When did the dog last see a vet? Is he taking any medications?
Customer: Our oldest was at the vet a few months ago, and is on trifexis but that is his only medication. The puppy was rescued from the humane society so he has recently been vetted and is all utd as well
JA: What's the dog's name?
Customer: Our older dog is Costa and the new puppy is Atlas.
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: Our older dog has had some stomach issues the last two days but I think it may have been because he got into the puppy’s food two nights ago, and he has a sensitive stomach but I don’t know if that could’ve been brought on from the stress of the new puppy either?
