Caring for your puppy means providing medical treatment from time to time. Do you know what constitutes normal puppy temperature, or what might cause higher or lower than normal readings? If your baby dog develops a fever and feels bad, for example, you'll need to know how to take her temperature.
If you're very lucky, your puppy won't get sick but even healthy pups sometimes need a bit of help. Sunburn may require you to administer skin medication to soothe the burn, while treatments for fleas or heartworm preventives come in pill form. Learn how to give your puppy a pill while she's little and learns it's a normal part of her life--so you won't have to argue with a jumbo-size pup when she grows up.
