    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    We use Frontline Plus. It's available in a dosage for puppies over 8 weeks of age and dogs up to 22 lbs.

    Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]

    Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":

    I thought it could be dangerous for a pup?

    We do our vetting at Kansas State's CollVetMed Teaching Hospital and it's what they recommended for Puff as a young pup.

    We give Miko (14wks) Comfortis, which will only control fleas.

    We have also used Frontline Plus for Java since we brought her home at 8 weeks old. She is 6 months now and has never had any sort of bad reaction to it. I think we may switch to Advantix though as it tends to be effective against more types of bugs and pests.

    Thank you! Limo goes for boosters today, so I'll ask at the vet. I'm interested in seeing how much he weighs He had rounds in the beginning and those are gone. He looks like he's pudged up a bit
