Help! My breeder said...
a number of things including 1) no flea medicine "because cavs don't get fleas and its just poison"; 2) no heartworm medication or Giardia "because dogs don't get heartworm in California"; 3) no rabies shot until 8 months; and 4) not to spay until after first heat. Please Help!!! I am seeing so much conflicting information and I don't know what to do, To make things worse, my husband and I just found 2 fleas on our 17 week old pup. We took her to his mom's to "visit" NOT even thinking that their dog could have fleas. We should have known better. I am going to call the vet tomorrow but I want to be prepared about the flea medicine situation. ANY advice would be appreciated.
