With us being in Washington state where its green and wet I wanted to know when to introduce flea and tick meds. Toby is 8 weeks old. I want to be safe but also protect him, we do have grass and even though we did exterminate before he got here I want to make sure he is protected. We do not see the vet until July for his next round of shots. We are going in this evening I think just to introduce him to the staff and weigh him (get him comfortable at the vet) so I will not be seeing the vet as an office visit.
If he cannot have the meds, can I wash him with the flea and tick shampoo that you get at the store? How would you go about protecting him until he can get on meds?
