We live in a rual area we do have a wslmart like 25 miles away in a small toen also
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the puppy's name?

JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?

I just want to know what can I get for the ferrets tonight to start treating them. We live in a small town with several small towns beside us. 20 some mikes away there is a Wal-Mart. Can we really use frontline on the ferrets. If not what can we that won't hurt them. The puppy is 15 weeks old. She was beaten at 2wks had 2 legs broken, 5 ribs broke and the sorry but jackass ' s burnt her hair off her back half but is growing back. We didn't realize the pup was covered in fleas before we let her on house. But I got the pup covered. But I have no clue what to do for Mikey and pixi. They normally go see the vet in Lincoln ne which is about 2 and half hours away. No one in this area will treat them
