Frontline, Advantix, or a regular flea collar and flea bath will take care of the fleas. Vacuum all the carpets, furniture and dog bedding (wash in very hot water if you can) and make sure you dispose of the bag immediately after vacuuming. Repeat the vacuuming ang washing every week. Consider using surface flea treatments as well. Read the instructions before use as some are not recommended for use on puppies or new moms.

Please, please, please, once the mom has weaned the pups and is back to health, get her spayed. Your dog is a mutt not a breed and there is no benefit to breeding her further and bringing more puppies into this world. Shelters are full of mutts (yorkiepoos, doggiepoos, whatever you call them) needing good homes and many more are dying because of the lack of them.

Not to mention that this dog is already 8 yrs old...too old to be having a litter of puppies!

Woah, CrestieRsq, way to quick in jumping to conclusions here. We know very little of the OP so we cannot jump to conclusion nor ignore the petition for help.

dbfroglover, are you new to dog forums? If you are, a word of advice...many dog people are touchy and feel very strongly about people breeding mixed breeds, so its best to give enough info so that you aren't bashed. I agree with Furb, in getting your dog spay once her litter has grown up.

There are a couple threads already talking about Fleas and preventatives, I post them up so you can have a go at them, maybe they'll help

Good call Jr_K9_Expert Welcome to the forum. It is true that people are touchy about excess dogs and people who breed just for profit, not for the betterment of a breed. So please know without much more information people may assume that you fit that mold.

To be sure, always phone your vet for advise that the product is suitable for a bitch with puppies.
