• My puppy will be 8 weeks July 6th. Can I get flea & tick protection for her or is she to young? Oh Can we spray the yard as well?

    There are some flea/tick products that are safe for young pets. At 8 weeks of age she should have her first visit with a veterinarian who can discuss the options and make recommendations. You can also ask questions about treating the yard at that time. Congratulations on your new family member.
