I just got a new pup today and its 8 weeks old tomarrow and it hasnt been dewormed I picked up dewormer and says how much to give but not how frequently there is three tablets and it takes one tablet per ten pounds of pup.

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

by the way its a lab pup.

It hasn't been wormed yet or it needs its 8 week dose? When we have pups around they get treated at 2,3,4,6,8,and 10 weeks. If it hasn't been wormed yet go to the vet and get some Nemex-2 and give it a heavier dose than normal. I'm not sure what kind or where you got those tabs from but I personally don't trust the petco/wallyworld brands.

Then we do it once a month, year round. If you have other animals around in my opinion its a must. We just do it with their heart worm and tick preventative. Its cheaper to do preventive things than to haul a bag of feces to the vet a bunch of times to see if you got rid of the problem.

I doesn't have to be Nemex, thats just the brand we have been using. I get a 16 oz bottle for about $60 online at revival animal, and that last us a long time.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
