Thank you for reaching out about the care for your puppy. These are all great questions and I am sure your veterinarian would love to provide you with some answers. Different shampoos can affect pets differently based on their skin so I would ask you vet which is best. In general, we don’t recommend bathing your puppy unless they have become dirty as bathing too frequently can dry out their skin. Giving your puppy too many different foods can cause vomiting and diarrhea. Also, you are correct that many foods safe for people can be harmful to dogs including onions, garlic, grapes, raisins and bread dough to name a few. Please discuss with your veterinarian any treats/foods you want to try before giving them.
