    8 week old puppies with a mild case of fleas
    I have just adopted two golden retriever pups and as far as I knew they did not have fleas when I brought them home. I just found a flea on one of them and I have no idea where she got it from. I want to prevent any future flea outbreaks in my home as well as my other animals, what can I use on the puppies for now? Can I get the Frontline at this age?

    Check the package directions. I have never used Frontline, but I know the Revolution I have used was OK for puppies that age. A vet visit, check up. And discussion would be good. They need heartworm remedy too.

    Tapeworm is also transmitted by fleas. It only takes one little flea to cause a lot of problems.
