Joyful Noise Frenchies
Nutrition Is So Important
Raw feeding is really the best thing you can do for your pet, but I realize that not everyone can do it. If you'd like to feed raw, just ask me as I have extensive knowledge with the ins and outs of raw feeding and I'm always happy to help. I never recommend anything for you to use on your dog that I haven't used myself and believe in.
Nutrition is so important for the health, vitality and longevity of your pet. We know you want them with you for years to come! That's why we recommend for kibble, Life's Abundance for your dog's food. Life’s Abundance is holistically balanced and provides the nutritional harmony that’s important to help your canine achieve and maintain optimal health.
The formula that I recommend for both puppies and adults is the The All life Stages (not grain free) and this is what your puppy has been eating from the very beginning. I personally feed this food to all my dogs and puppies with great results.
All Life Stages (non grain free formula) recipe contains only the finest ingredients, like …
• A proprietary blend of vitamins & minerals
• High-quality protein from chicken meal for strong muscles
• An antioxidant system including vitamins C & E
• Prebiotic fiber & guaranteed probiotics
• A selection of nutritious vegetables
• Omega-3 fatty acids for healthy skin & a shiny coat
• Calcium & phosphorus for healthy teeth and strong bones
• Dietary fiber to help maintain a healthy digestive tract
To be the best dry dog food, this premium kibble contains …
• No artificial flavors or colors
• No corn, wheat or corn/wheat glutens
Fresher food is more nutrient-rich. While leading brands stockpile tons of food for months on end, our healthy dog food is made weekly in small batches in Ohio and New York. When you buy this Life’s Abundance dog food, your sweet pup will benefit from our strict inventory controls and product safety considerations that are second-to-none. Put your K-9 on the path to wellness. Provide them with a recipe for a long and happy life.

SPAYING & NEUTERING RECOMMENDATIONS
Please do not spay or neuter until 10 months of age!! I do not care WHAT your vet recommends, vets care about controlling the pet population. IF you spay before 10 months your dog will not have the proper hormones in which to grow to his or her potential. They need these hormones to mature and grow. (Most frenchies don't come into heat until 12 mos or after)
No Dog Parks or Public Places until full set of shots is completed! I DO NOT recommend dog parks ever because alot of unscrupulous owners take their anti-social dogs there and accidents can happen. Frenchies are fearless to a fault and think they are giant dogs trapped in a small body. It's better to seek out French bulldog meet ups if you feel you need to be social.
Core vaccines only up to 1 year - (distemper, adenovirus and parvo)
Read this article about what vaccines are actually necessary
DO NOT administer the leptospirosis vaccine no matter what your vet tells you. They will always say it’s safe. If it is given, it deems my health guarantee null & void. Research this fb page of all the adverse reactions and death this vaccine has caused
Vaccine Detox - Frenchies are very sensitive to vaccines and flea/tick prevention. I do not recommend any yearly shots after the first year. I find, the less you bog their systems down, the healthier they are. After the puppy series, they have immunity for life. Rabies is mandatory, so use the Rebalancer after any and all vaccines. The other shots are not a requirement and if your vet says otherwise, find a new vet. Part of being a pet owner is being an advocate for their health/welfare. And yearly shots are overkill and only about the $$
You can also request titers to be done to check immunity, I can give you info on how to do that.
Here is a great article about how vaccine overkill is harming our pets.
Flea/Tick treatment dangers
Natural Heartworm Prevention
Heart guard and other chemical prevention is attributed to seizures in dogs.
To order natural HW prevention
Another choice for Natural heartworm prevention
Give 1 capful to a gallon of water and water your pet with it for 7 days out of each month. So much better for them than all those pesticides that are in flea/tick/heartworm meds.
Natural Pet wormer it REALLY works, it's almost exclusively the only thing I use on ALL my dogs!! Use 1/4 tsp (puppies) to 1/2 tsp (adults) of formula 1 for 3 days in a row, then use the same dosage of formula 2 once per week. Do not use formula #1 in pregnant or lactating animals, use formula 2 in that case Consistency is key

I highly recommend the yard sprays, to treat your yard and environment instead of your pet. They work great to treat the common areas of your yard. Also the ear cleaner and ear treatment are great and I'm excited about the new natural pet collar

SPAYING & NEUTERING RECOMMENDATIONS
Please do not spay or neuter until 9 months of age!! I do not care WHAT your vet recommends, vets care about controlling the pet population. IF you spay before 9 months your dog will not have the proper hormones in which to grow to his or her potential. They need these hormones to mature and grow. (Most frenchies don't come into heat until 12 mos or after)
The puppy playpen works better for a new puppy the first couple months than a crate does. You can put a pee pad holder in there or the dog litter box, bed, toys, food and water. Works great when you can't supervise them.
When you come get him, you can just bring a dog bed, he'll most likely just curl up and sleep on the drive home. To potty on the drive, just put a pee pad on the floor board of your car as you don't want to be putting them in grass or ground/floor that isn't your home/yard.
