Dr. Altman :

First, congratulations on your new additions!

Dr. Altman :

Bathing should not be more frequent then once weekly

Dr. Altman :

Products for fleas /ticks a product called frontline would be best (fiprinil is the primary ingredient)

Dr. Altman :

For their coat a fish oil, the name of the product is not as important as the ingredients: EPA & DHA should be listed on the label and they should get about 500 mg now daily and when adults can have 1000 mg daily
