Flea and Tick Control

Fleas do not stay on your puppy all of the time; occasionally, they jump off and seek another host.  Therefore, it is important to kill fleas on your new puppy before they can become established in your house.

Many of the flea control products that are safe on adult dogs are not safe for puppies less than four months of age.  Be sure that any flea product you use is labeled safe for puppies.
