: My JRT Kenny s only 6.5 weeks old but he has fleas. What should I give my baby? He has not had his shots yet as the pet shop where I purchased him gave him one shot recently so he can't have another for a few weeks.
: Thanks.


Hi Kenny's Mom,

Besides the fact that the pet store has sold a puppy that is too young and in some states it's illegal to sell a puppy less than 8 weeks old, you need to get this little guy to see a vet ASAP.

Seeing that he has fleas makes me think that he really needs to be checked out by a vet to make sure he's healthy and wormed. Do not try to remedy the fleas on your own many flea products can be harmful to very young pups! This pup is way too young and this should be addressed by a veterinian.
