petty much rescued him... Hes eating wet and dry puppy chow and pooping really good.
See what happend is this lady called me about the puppies and gave me the guys phone number. We called him and went to look. The puppies were in pretty bad shape... He has 5 adult dogs 2 chihuahua's, 1 Cocker Spaniel, and 1 Dachsund. The dachsund and spaniel wre females and chihuahua's were males... and the cocker spaniel was the mother of the litter... ALl of his adult dogs looked really healthy but i guess he hadn't bothered to treat the puppies for fleas... they were covered and had sores from scratching. I would've taken all 3 if i could've, but we picked out the one that walked right up to us.
Anyway the vet said i could put a DROP of frontline on him only, so we gave him a good bath and put on the frontline and i combed out all the dead fleas... We also gave him a few worm pills (hookworm, roundworm, and tapeworm)
Today he is flea free!!! I've always used advantage on my cats but the frontline seems to work really good as well. My cats are starting to sniff him more and they haven't hissed at him at all!!!
Now... just gotta start working on the potty training...
