    Default Forgot to ask the vet yesterday ...

    ... what other medications Stig should get before we introduce him to doggy daycare and training school.

    Since he's finally vaccinated, we'd like to socialize him with other dogs by taking him to the above activities. He's been vaccinated for Parvo, rabies and a couple of other things. How about fleas, ticks etc? How should we go about those? Should we only treat when he shows symptoms or are there other preventative measures? Stiggy's 6.5 months.

    Thanks!

    My brother takes his dog to "puppy day care" three days a week and he loves it. I know he had to have the "puppy flu" vaccine, and he also had to be neutered. His place will take them not neutered, but they won't put them in the "play group" with the other dogs. I want to take Ruckus, but he's not neutered (yet).

    i wouldnt think that training would require them to be neutered.. i would call around to the places your wanting to take him and ask what their policy is

    Definitely treat with Frontline, (to prevent flea/tick issues) and the flu vaccine is Bordatella.

    usually in puppy day care, they require a monthly flea treatment. If you don't treat your pup and there is a flea found, the will treat him at your (inflated) cost. (at least at my daycare)
