I live in Pa and we have pretty cold weather until April. When do I start using Advantage on my puppy? I would like to prevent fleas as much as possible.

    Fleas can infest a dog at any age and any time. Fleas can take refuge in a warm home during the winter, if you have no pest control. I would talk to your vet, especially for dosage amount and age to start using the medication.

    i live in mn and i just had to de-flea all my animals.
    fleas can live in cold weather and crawl onto your pet as a host and then spread throughout your house.


    if you have never used it before he probably has a couple of fleas and eggs..best to start before it gets too warm and their numbers increase.once before spring and every couple of months reapply.
