Taking care of a dog
|Taking care of a dog does not only include feeding and grooming but also preventive
health care which is an important aspect, too.
Our puppies are
vaccinated against parvovirosis for the first time at the age
of six weeks. Parvovirosis is a diarrhoeic disease which in
puppies may soon be fatal. It is also called infectious
At the age of 8 weeks, our puppies are vaccinated using a
7-fold serum, i.e. against parvovirosis, distemper,
hepatitis, kennel/viral cough and leptospirosis.
At the age of 12 weeks the puppy is vaccinated against
rabies and the 7-fold shot is repeated.
With these shots, the required basic vaccination is thus
This 8-fold vaccination against all these infectious
diseases must be repeated once a year.
Since short, there is also a serum against borrelia
infection available. This disease is transmitted by

vaccinations you and your dog will be free from many worries.
Your Cairn will reward you for this - day by day, year by
year. Your vet will inform you in detail on vaccinations.
|Regular worming is
as important as vaccinating. Our puppies are being wormed weekly
from the first to the tenth week of life. It may happen despite
greatest care that an „undertenant“ will also move
into the new home. For this reason we recommend each person
purchasing a dog from us to present his Cairn to the vet after
about 10 days.

puppies wormed once again. On this occasion the vet will also
thoroughly examine your dog and can confirm that you have
purchased a healthy Cairn optimally reared.
|Apart from worms,
there are also other plagues such as fleas and ticks. Fleas can
transmit tapeworm! To have a flea is no shame but it’s a
shame not to do anything against it. In this case, too, your vet
can do something against it, he has got safe anti-flea and

The Cairn actually
does not need very much grooming, but he cannot do without any
coat care. As a rule, combing with a metal comb and brushing
with a natural hair brush once a week will do. Daily combing
will result in a an open coat consisting of soft top coat
without undercoat, which is very difficult to be plucked.
Plucking is done with the fingers only, i.e. using thumb and

Summer time -
Do you intend to
travel with your Cairn?
Please take note of the entry regulations varying from country
to country. Your vet can give you information on this and he
will also provide you with the necessary medicine to take along
for your Cairn.

enjoy your holidays very much.

Cairn will be getting older.
The senses of hearing and seeing will weaken. The hair in the
area of the foreface will turn grey. The digestion process of an
older dog is slowing down, he will now need a premium
calorie-reduced food. There are highly nutritious senior food
types available in the market. All the specific nutrients
exactly meet the requirements of older dogs.
Time will come
to have to say good-bye.

It will not always happen that the old Cairn passes peacefully
away in his habitual surrounding. More often than not he must be
relieved by a veterinarian from the pains caused by an incurable
Not to relieve an old dog from his pains due to human weekness,
although he is suffering from an incurable disease and the vet
had advised to do so, is a cruelty!
Accompany him on his last journey!
Take him in your arms so that he may be delivered from his
suffering without fear. This is the only way in which you may
thank him for his affection and faithfulness.
