  • Give the mom Frontline and that will clear it up within a few days. It is safe for lactating dogs, I checked with my vet when our dog had pups last summer.

  • We did this to my cat. Give them a bath with cooking oil. It suffocates the fleas. Then use baby shampoo to wash them. Wait 2 days and bathe again with soap.
