    SmileMeet Cooper!

    Hello everyone, meet Cooper!

    cooper.jpg

    My name is Steve. I adopted a black lab/springer spaniel mix from the Humane Society four weeks ago. Someone left the mom and 5 pups at the Humane Society when they were three weeks old. They were fostered until 8 weeks and weaned off the mom. They all were spayed/neutered, microchipped, first round of shots, and given a flea treatment. I have an appointment Friday for his next batch of shots.

    He's been doing pretty good as far as training goes. He knows his name, sit, drop it, easy, upstairs, outside, and some others. I'm quite impressed how quickly he picks up new words.

    I won't keep rambling now but I will have a few questions after I dig around here for a bit. I'm mainly looking into flea/tick recommendations since we go camping about every weekend and I've heard mixed things about what age to start them on treatments. I've found one tick on him but was able to completely remove it with tweezers.

    Thanks for listening!

    -Steve

    Welcome! He looks more labby than springer in the pics. He's a cutie! As far as flea/tick protection, I'd go with Advantix K-9. Frontline has been known to cause seizures and isn't as effective anyway. We use the Comfortis pill for fleas, but it doesn't protect against ticks. We live where we don't have a tick problem that much.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

    Thanks Pam for the flea/tick recommendation. The vet actually recommended Advantix K9 also. She said that frontline doesn't actively repel the ticks but Advantix does.

    Welcome. One thing to be careful with is that sometimes removing ticks with tweezers their heads will break off and still be inside. We heat up a needle with a lighter or whatever good and hot and touch them on the behind and they back right out and then you can set them aside.
