One day old puppies and one flea

I just found a flea on one of my day old puppies. my yellow lab had them on monday night. should I try the dawn stuff on all the puppies and then give my mommy another bath. we gave her one yesterday? Help…

Answer #1

Ditto to ichibanarky

Answer #2

Wait for the umbilical cord to heal completely before you bathe the puppy…in the meantime, use a flea comb to remove any fleas you see on the puppies.

Also, don’t treat the mom for fleas with flea shampoo or other treatments…stick with the dawn - while she’s nursing, the treatment can be harmful to the puppies.
