September 25, 2009, Newsletter Issue #65: Questions to Ask When Buying a Puppy

Tip of the Week

Are you searching for Cocker Spaniel puppies for sale? There are so many things to remember when you are searching for a new puppy. It is a good idea to make a list of questions to ask when buying a puppy so that you don't forget what you wanted to ask the different breeders. When you are shopping for puppies, either in person or through a site like, you should:

Ask if the puppies have received health exams and first shots from the veterinarian. Many breeders will respond that the vet did look the puppies over, but they give their own immunizations. This can be a problem if the breeder giving the shots isn't properly trained, as the immunizations may not protect the puppies if they are given incorrectly. Find out if the puppies' parents have been screened for any genetic disorders. While this doesn't guarantee your puppy will be safe from these disorders, it can definitely lessen the chance of your puppy getting sick. Discover if the breeder offers a guarantee and have the details spelled out. If you don't find out the details and your puppy has a problem, you may discover that the guarantee consists of a promise to take the puppy back during the first blue moon of the next leap year.
