Hi. My 8 week gsd had 1 tick on her. Freaking out. We were told not to use flea meds until 12 weeks?

I was told to use powder or dawn dish washing liquid? Can I? Thx.

Call your vet or the breeder/rescue you got her from and ask them what to do. I do not think one tick will kill your puppy, however.

One tick will not hurt your pup. On your first visit to your vet they should give you a sample of a flea/tick combo. I recommend advantix 2. And make sure you have the vet give your lil one a lime disease vaccine on that visit too.

We also got a great little tool from our vet to remove ticks easily. Even with tick preventive she still gets them once in a while. What is the Dawn for? Prevention, cleaning after??
