i dont have carpet in my house that helps alot too because i rarely see a flea on snickers but our yorkie gets them like one or two because she is so low to the ground but they are easly controlled my girl finds them and kills them dead lol.

Ok i have an 8 week (around 11lbs) old pup and a 3yr jack russell (less than 20lbs).
Been using Advantage on my jack in the past but stopped since a few months back. I just found some fleas on him and on my pup.
Im thinking about going towards Frontline Plus. which do i need for the pup and jack? CAn they use the same one cause they are pretty much close to weight?

All of my flea drops say not to use them on puppies. I think it said 12 weeks is the youngest. I would suggest regular baths for that duration. I however am no where close to being an expert.

I believe (check the label!) that both Frontline and Advantage are safe to use on 8 week old pups. I think Frontline is 7 weeks actually. Frontline's smallest size is 11-22 lb (they have an under 11 but it is exactly the same as 11-22), so that should work well for both your dogs.
