What Age To Deworm and Deflea a Puppy?
Hi all! My neighbours (the ones with the puppies) asked me how old can they be before they give them deworming tablets. They are just over 5 weeks old now. She also asked if she can put defleaing powder on them now. Any advice please? Thanks!

Dear Melbalina

Pups can be dewormed from 2 weeks of age and you can use the frontline spray from a few days old.
