I have two German Shepherd Mix dogs. One is 56 lbs, one is 50 lbs. I have a few questions.
1) Should I dose them both at the up to 55lbs, or the 56 lb dog at the 55+ lbs dose or…?
2) I just moved to Florida from MN and have never dealt with fleas before. I bathed them in a flea and tick shampoo about two hours before applying K9 Advantix II. Is it still effective? I have picked about 20 fleas off of each them today, which is almost a week after application. When can I apply another dose?
3) How do I treat the home/yard? I know this is an important step, yet I haven’t heard a safe solution.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
