My jimmy is 6 weeks old . When should i bathe him ? He eats like nothing is it normal ? He lives inside my house and he pees and do the big thing everywhere around the house . And he has ticks on him ? And maybe fleas . Is there anyway without removing ticks one by one ? is there any medicine or spray or liquid ? does salt water kill ticks ? And he is always scratching himself ? maybe because of the ticks or is it a problem ?

Thank You

The vet can get you on some meds for the fleas and ticks (not sure if Frontline can be used on pups that youngs, but I know there are products that can be). Plus he needs a full checkup anyhow and probably some shots, unless the breeder already gave him the first set.

As for peeing and pooping, that will take time and patience. Take your pup out every 1/2 hour or so and tell him to "potty outside". When he does go outside, praise him and tell him what a good boy he is and make a big deal about it. When he goes inside, don't discipline him, but tell him "no, potty outside" and put him outside. Eventually, he'll get it and be potty trained. It took months for Duke to become totally trained, but we got there and you will too!

Good luck with your new little guy, they are so much fun. Oh, and if you have any pictures of Jimmy, we do love to fawn over puppy pictures.
