Teacup Tips

On this page we will try to give you an idea of what is involved when getting a new tea-cup puppy and how to be a responsible owner for one. Please take the time to read these important tips as it will make you feel more ready for the next step and will assure you know everything you need for the first few weeks with your new Teacup & Toy puppy.

In the first two weeks we will ask you to monitor your puppy’s behavior closely and make sure your puppy is doing what every healthy puppy does: eat food, drink water, play and goes to the bathroom regularly. The most important thing to remember is that a puppy is exactly like a human baby until it’s about 4 months old. It needs to get a lot of rest and quiet time so it can develop and be your best friend for life.

When bringing your new puppy home, we recommend you do not give it access to the whole house right away, rather, you should designate a room where it is nice and warm, and let your new friend get used to its new home slowly. In that room, make sure the puppy has fresh drinking water available all the times and has access to it whenever it feels thirsty.


Offer it a comfortable cozy bed it can climb on and off of. Puppies at this age should eat every 5-6 hrs.

We will give you detailed feeding instructions about the brand and preparation of the food when you pick-up your baby.

Since they are so small they don’t need to eat much but you must make sure they don’t skip a meal. If for some reason your baby doesn’t want to eat, it is important that you will let us know right away so we can suggest you what to do. Again, if the puppy doesn’t eat, do not wait, puppies so small can get Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) very easily if they don’t get enough calories or if they are under too much stress. Hypoglycemia can also cause weakness, seizures, lethargy and even death.

There are many things you can do to prevent this, but we must take action fast. So be sure to have our numbers handy in case you need to call. For first aid – Use a clean towel to wrap around the puppy and make sure he is warm. Rub a bit of honey, corn syrup or some Nutri-Cal on the gums to get some glucose in his blood. Try to get the puppy to eat ASAP. If the attack is very strong, take the puppy immediately to see a vet. And no, you don’t need to wake up in the middle of the night to feed your little baby.


Just make sure it ate a bit before you go to bed (you can also give a bit of “Nutri-Cal”) and then feed your puppy first thing in the morning. If from some reason you want to change your puppy’s diet, it is important to do it during the course of about 10 days when you start with 80 % old food 20% new food and every day add more of the new and less of the old. Changing the puppy’s diet at once can cause stomach disorders and diarrhea. Not good.

Check your puppy on a daily basis to make sure everything is OK.

  • The eyes should be nice and clean, if needed, use a baby wipe to clean gently around the eye.
  • The nose should be slightly wet and the stool should be nice and solid.
  • His ears should also be looked at to make sure they are clean.

For the next month or so it is recommended not give your puppy a full bath, instead, use a warm, wet towel or baby wipes to clean. Make sure the puppy is completely dry when you’re done as they are easy to get a cold. An important spot to check is the butt-hole. Make sure it is nice and clean, and if needed wash with warm water and a bit of puppy shampoo. Altogether, tea-cup puppies are exactly like any other puppies, all they need is a little bit more time and attention to make sure they get everything they need.

Remember- you are not allowed to take your dog out in public except for the vet until it gets all of its shots.

After passing these critical two weeks you should do what every responsible pet owner does: Take your dog to the vet regularly to get his check-ups, vaccinations and deworming. When the time comes- spay or neuter your dog. Keep your dog on a leash when out in public. Get your dog license, I.D tag and even a microchip to help find your dog in case it gets lost or stolen. Take it for grooming every now and then but brush its coat on a daily basis. If something doesn’t look right, do not wait; contact us or your vet ASAP so your dog can get the treatment he deserves. And don’t forget: if you will be there for your dog to love and care, it will return to you 1000 times more.

We wish you the best of luck with your new tea-cup baby and hope you will have only good times together!
