Ask Our Vet – your pet health questions answered

Question from Diana Healy

I have a yorkie, Gidget who is 8 years old and a puppy, Misha, pom who is 4.5 months old. Misha picks on Gidget and Gidget just snaps at her. Can Misha hurt Gidget? Also, with their weight being so small should I use just 1/2 a pipe of Frontline on each dog? Thanks, Diana

Our Vet Says:

Dogs living in the same household have hierarchies and have a similar way of behaving with youngsters like humans.

Misha is still very young and it is seen as a child by Gidget. She will not intentionally hurt her until she is a few months older and hormones develop, but in the meantime she will correct her. Around the time when Misha will be reaching the adult stage of her life these fights will increase for a period of time until they find their equilibrium in the house.
