puppy flea medication
Can eight week old puppy be treated for fleas?
Yes, a puppy of this age can definitely be treated for fleas, it's just important that you read the instructions and directions on any flea treatment that you buy.
The most effective treatment is to use a spot-on or topical product such as Frontline Plus. This can be used on a puppy over 8 weeks of age and is graded according to the age/weight of the pup/dog.
It can be purchased online or from your veterinary clinic. Over the counter products are generally not very effective and can have unwanted side effects.
I would also recommend checking with your veterinarian for further advice before putting any product on your pet. Best of luck
