With brand-new puppies? I mean really brand-new, born yesterday One of my dad's beagles had 5 pups yesterday morning, and she is an outside dog. I was looking at her babies, and the first one I picked up had a flea on its little bitty neck I know I can't use anything on them, and I'm thinking I can't on mama either, right? When can I, and what can I use? Do I have to wait until she is done nursing them? I try to help take care of this dog, well, most of his animals actually, but this dog especially. She was my son's, until a different one of dad's dogs had pups, then my dad 'traded' my 4 y/o the pup for the older dog. Really ticks me off, dad evidently thinks a 4 y/o is capable of making a deal like that So I still treat her as if she were mine. Anyway, so when can I use something on her, and what can I use? And the puppies? When and what? Do they have to be a certain weight before I can use something on them?
