Congratulations to a new friend at your house! After the happiness you should think seriously about the health and care questions. Get all the vaccinations, behaviour training, the socialization process and of course health preventing care, especially FLEA AND TICKS MEDICATION.
It's always a tricky trap with young pets. Using some flea treatments on too young a puppy can be harmful, so it's a challenging task to prevent and treat the small furry friend from fleas and ticks.
Common flea treatment products are dangerous for a newborn puppy, so it's highly important to visit your vet for a consultation about specific ways of flea prevention. Most likely, you`ll be prescribed to use a flea comb. It enables you to manually check your pet's coat for fleas and ticks and makes it easier for you to remove the pests from her skin. In other cases the most careful treatment will be arranged. Do not underestimate the danger of flea infestation - cause it may be fatal to your puppy.

When your puppy is more than 2 pounds and over 4 weeks of age - you may start using natural flea products and collars.

Think of non-toxic materials while choosing the cure. Think carefully, while choosing - being sure your puppy is more than 2 pounds, thus undersized puppies might suffer from serious side effects, even neurological problems.

Flea baths may also be effective for puppies under age of 6 weeks. Begin with the neck and apply shampoo around it, scrubbing the neck area. Then continue the same with the body.After that dry the puppy, not to get him sick. Natural Chemistry Natural Flea & Tick Shampoo is a great choice, as it suits to all ages and have non-toxic chemicals - Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cinnamon Oil, Cedar Oil and Clove Oil. You should only mind the allergies.

Plus to bath with non-toxic shampoo you may start using natural flea collars. Natural collar like SOBAKEN Flea and Tick Prevention for Dogs is a great choice for that age. Spearmint Clove and citronella oils if you prefer natural ingredients of the product will protect your puppy for 8 month. Consider the best for you and your puppy.

8 weeks means you can start to use many commercial flea preventives, including over-the-counter and prescription medications. For example, Frontline Flea & Tick Spray for Dogs & Cats, with (S)-methoprene and fipronil ia a spray that controls ticks monthly and is very effective underwater.
Pay great attention to the formula for your pet's weight.
An EPA exploration shows that small puppies (10 to 20 pounds) are most likely to have allergic reactions like rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, and seizures from topical treatments. Consider also breed-specific sensitivities, so you won't make the proper choice without consulting your vet before use.
Chemical collars like Adams Plus Flea & Tick Collar for Dogs & Puppies are great choices for that age. Severe but effective ingredients (Deltamethrin, Pyriproxyfen) will keep your doggie safe for 12 month. The choice should be made after the financial and chemical aspects.

If your puppy of 12 weeks age is severely infested, your vet should recommend you to use more serious treatment.
S-methoprene or pyriproxyfen are said to be less toxic. Keep away from products with synthetic neonicotinoids (like imidacloprid and dinotefuran), which can be harmful not only for puppies but also to human brain development.
At that age a lot of products are available from collars to pills and topical treatment. You may start Seresto Flea & Tick Collar with imidacloprid and flumethrin as active chemicals, which gives 8 month flea protection and is said to be one of the most effective in this form. However, a lot of customers admit the itching allergy, so make the tests in advance. If pills seem to you more comfortable, think of Comfortis Chewable Tablet suitable for over 14 weeks dogs and cats. Its active chemical Spinosad has a common side effect - vomiting, however it does not affect the effectiveness, because a lot of puppy-owners recommend it. Use it monthly.
Remember! You should always consult a vet before making conclusions!

P.S. Clean the home.
No matter how severe the infestation is, it is necessary to also treat your home to ensure flea eggs and larvae don't grow to reinfest your puppy later.
Be cautious!

"Prevention is technically the easiest but practically the most difficult because many pet owners won't do it. But there are a number of highly effective treatments that your dog can be placed on and left on for the rest of her life so she doesn't have to suffer."
