    Puppies and kittens should have started worming at the breeders at 2 weeks of age, and then every 2/3 weeks until they are 12 weeks old, then monthly up to 6months, and then every 3/4 months like adults.

    A good gentle one for pups is Panacur oral paste or the panacur liquid.
    That does round worms, some tapeworm (pups have roundworm usually mostly) and giardia. available from your vet but usually cheaper on line,
    Vet-Medic - the same medicines as your vet at consistently low prices.

    Front Line spot on dog, does fleas ticks and biting lice, each treatment gives you approx. 2mths protection against fleas and up to amonths protection against ticks. You can use it on pups from 8 weeks of age.
