If they are 8 weeks or older, give them a fleaath,if they are younger call the vet.
You can treat puppies with any topical flea treatment like Advantix. The puppies need to be 7 weeks old before you can use this product on the puppy. To treat a puppy younger …than 7 weeks for fleas just apply the treatment to the mother and her close contact with the puppies will rid them of fleas.
it depends on how old they are you can use puppy flea shampoo after four weeks but always check with your vet.
Hi, . While fleas may seem too tiny to cause much more than an inconvenience, an infestation of fleas on your dog can become a serious medical problem indeed. Your dog can …run the gamut of reactions to fleas, from a mild skin irritation to a severe allergic response.. And because fleas feed on blood, a severe infestation can cause anemia or even death in some of the most serious cases. Unless you live in an extremely dry climate or at a high elevation, fleas will be a source of concern for you and your dog..

You can get some for puppies at about 8 weeks old.

Death. (Don't be cheap and take better care of your pets. They are labeled for a reason.)
Puppies can get fleas from their parents who might already have fleas or from the outside if they have been out. Fleas can jump high and the parents can pass on the fleas to t…heir puppies. Also, once a flea is on a dog, it may lay some eggs on the dog and these eggs would most likely fall off and could end up in carpet or on a rug, or even in the dog's bed. That way, when they hatch, they are already in the person's house and then they can jump onto the puppies. If the puppies have been outside, then they could have easily gotten fleas, since there are so many fleas everywhere. To prevent puppies from getting fleas, it would be a good idea to make sure the parents do not have any and that the puppies get some products specially designed to kill or prevent fleas.
actually yes. my famliy did it once and after a few days there were NO fleas on our dogs. so ur answer is yes!

Yes you can use flea powder or flea spray on a young pup. Just make sure the stuff you are using says on the label, "safe for puppies". Then you should take your pup into see …your Veterinarian to have it checked up and dewormed. Fleas carry tapeworm eggs so your pup is probably infected with tapeworms & round worms. Give your pup a bath with a safe flea soap then dry then spray him or her good with a good brand flea spray or powder. Frontline Flea spray is good but I do not know if it is safe for pups, read the label.
