I have some small puppies that are 2 weeks old that are getting lots of fleas on them. I know they are too young for flea sprays and powders, and i also know it wouldn’t be good to spray or powder the mother as she is nursing them. What can i do?

    DON’T USE ANY PRODUCTS! IT IS DANGEROUS. “You can use frontline top spot on them. It is safe to lactating females and their puppies. But call your vet, you will have to get it from the vet anyhow. ” DON’T DO IT, IT IS FOR ANIMALS OVER 6 WEEKS OLD. (and besides it’s otc) what we do at the vet office i work at is use dawn dish shop it works wonders. And also get a flea come. DO NOT GET A FLEA COLLAR THEY ARE MORE HARM THEN GOOD, AND IF YOU DO DECIDE TO GO USE A PRODUCT (WHICH YOU SHOULDN’T DO) DO NOT USE ANYTHING MADE BY HERTZ, WE GET MORE COMPLAINTS ABOUT IT AT WORK THEN GOOD THINGS.

    there is something called a “flea comb” that is carried by most pet stores. it has really fine teeth and as you comb it through the fur it catches the fleas and pulls them off. put a little flea spray in a bowl, dip the very tip of the comb’s teeth in the spray, pull it through the fur and then dip any fleas you get into the spray to kill them. when you are done, wet a washcloth and wipe the puppy off. good luck.

    We have always used Adam’s flea spray on very young puppies. As long as you avoid the eyes it is okay. We have never had any problems and our vet recommmended it to us. You can find it at any pet store but talk to your vet first.

    For puppies and kittens that are too young to use regular flea medication, bathe them in Ivory dishwashing liquid. This WILL NOT keep the fleas off, but will kill the ones that are presently on the animal, giving them relief until they are old enough to get on regular medication.
