Hi Karla, congratulations on your new puppy! I recommend that you call and talk to the veterinarian who examined him yesterday. There are a few different products including Bravecto that can be used to control fleas. There is a concern in using some of these products in a puppy as they may not have been fully tested in puppies. The best product for him will also depend on his size, breed, overall health, and the risk where you live. Your vet knows your pet and the local area and they can give you the best advice on this. I do not recommend using any products unless directed to do so by your vet. Some of the over the counter medications can sometimes cause complications in a puppy. Your vet will be able to let you know which ones are safe for him.
