Hi Bailey's dad! I recently fostered three 4 week old (well, they're 9 weeks now) puppies who were INFESTED with fleas. It was so bad that they had fleas covering their eyelids. Anyway, the vet told me that I could spray some flea/tick mist (I used Adam's, which I believe says puppies 12 weeks and older) onto a paper towel and then rub it on the puppies fur. It worked, and the puppies suffered no side effects. The vet did say that he had seen puppies die from flea infestations, but never from a reaction to a flea/tick spray. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I would check with your vet before doing what I did.

As for the garlic/brewers yeast, I use it with my dogs and it seems to work. The Cavalier breeder I worked for also used it and never once after a year of working there did any of their dogs get fleas, and this was WITHOUT flea/tick preventative (i.e Advantage, etc).
