It looks like DH and I finally found a foster dog that we are going to adopt, and I could use help on putting together a "to-do" checklist, especially when it comes to the health care aspect of adopting a dog. Can any of you help?
We already have a number of dog items, such as a crate, bed, food/water dish, leash, harness, and a few toys.
We will ask the foster what kind of dog food she is currently on so that we can stock up on that.
What else do we need for taking care of the dog day-to-day?
I'm also completely clueless when it comes to healthcare. We live in MN, and I hear things like heartworm preventative...how does that work? Is there any preventative for lymes disease? How do you know what other immunizations, meds, etc. that the dog needs?
FYI, she is a 4-year old Australian Shephard mix, who the rescue tells us is in good health.
