Is it good to keep fleas and bugs out of my pup? I get them for free from a friend and it comes with 4 little tubes, just wondering to give him the extra protection he needs. Also, at what age do I start giving him Ivermectin? I forgot how to spell it, performanceknls gives it to her dogs once a month for heart worm, and also what pills should I buy from petsmart or petco to make sure my pup is protected against any type of worm out there?

You can start putting flea treatment on a pup at the age of 8 weeks. Advantix is not the greatest product but if thats what you have it will be ok. BUT remember if you have CATS you can not use it b/c it will harm the CAT

Ivermectin you can start giving at 8 weeks also. Its a heartworm & de-wormer. IT will kill all worms but Tapeworms.

NONE OF THE GARBAGE AT PETSMART, PETCO, WALMART ETC SHOULD BE GIVEN TO DOGS B/C YOU ARE GIVING THEM POISON.

If you are having a parasite problem take your pup to the vet so you can either get the following medication...
- Droncit
- Pancur
- Strongit

alrighty thanks so much!, what product do you recommend deb? for fleas and all sorts of bug bites? I want a really good product that will really prevent him from getting anything. Is there a website that you buy it from? what do you buy for your dogs? Also, If I buy Ivermectin, what other product do I use to prevent tape worms?

You don;t need to treat most indoor dogs for fleas or ticks unless you have fleas in your yard or you pick up more than a few ticks on your dog. The only reason I treat my dogs is because we have ticks out in the valley where I live. Ivermectin you can start at 5-6 months of age or right away if you want to and use it year round to be safe.

my dogs are inside for the most part but get the occasional random fleas...for those would you recommend the biospot spray?
