Do puppies need flea treatment?
Your vet will help advise you on when to start flea protection, but for most puppies the first treatment can occur once they are six to eight weeks old.
The exact age will depend on the type of flea treatment chosen and the weight of your puppy.
These will include the core vaccines, which are administered in a series of three: at 6-, 12-, and 16 weeks old.
The core vaccines include the DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, and parainfluenza).
Your pup will also need a rabies vaccination, which is usually around $15—20.
Most animals need only what are known as core vaccines: those that protect against the most common and most serious diseases.
In dogs, the core vaccines are distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and rabies.
In cats, they are panleukopenia, calicivirus, rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus), and rabies as required by law.
When should a puppy start eating solid food? Puppies should get solid food starting at about four weeks, when they're not able to get all the calories they need from their mother's milk.
Most puppies are weaned by six weeks.
Puppies should be wormed from two-three weeks of age at two weekly intervals until they are twelve weeks of age, then every month until they are six months of age.
Worming should continue at least three times a year with a recommended veterinary preparation for the rest of the dog's life.
Well, not usually. Most training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two pups at the same time.
Just because you have two kids and they both want their own puppy doesn't mean you should get two pups.
You stand the best chance of raising well-trained and -socialized puppies one at a time.
States regulate the age at which it is first administered.
A second vaccination is recommended after 1 year, then boosters every 3 years.
Puppies need a booster 1 year after completing their initial series, then all dogs need a booster every 3 years or more often. Core dog vaccine.
