My puppies are two weeks old today and have had fleas since they were just a few days old. The mother WILL NOT clean them, I have tried to get rid of them, but nothing seems to work. I have been using a flea comb and combing the fleas off of them daily (I comb the fleas into the toilet), and have been bleaching the linens they lie on. Vacuuming all the rooms in my home several times a day. And have even relocated them to a different room (incase it is just that room). Nothing works. They have dried blood on them in certain areas and the fleas are back on them within minutes. My dog has had puppies before and I have never had this problem so please no “you dont know what your doing” comments. I am doing the best I can.
What should I do?
My vet has told me I shouldn’t bath them until they are older.
The mother doesn’t have fleas to the extent they do and she is bathed regularly. I have been combing her aswell.
