What is the best tick shampoo to use on a 7wk old puppy? I read on the internet that you can use Dawn dishsoap but it was only mentioned for fleas but didn't know if would work for ticks as well. What would you suggest?



Welcome to Just Answer. Are you looking to get the ticks off or to try and prevent further ticks from getting on him?

I am looking to get them off first and then prevention as well
Ok. In this situation, the best thing to use would be the product Frontline. It is very, very effective for treating and preventing ticks. It is labled for dogs over 8 weeks of age. I would manually remove the ones on him now and then get the product from your vet.
