Finny was a hit at the vets!
« on: September 13, 2005, 09:36:37 pm »
All is well with Finn, otherwise known as Captin Drippy Beard. His weight is up to 102 (wich is still low for an 11 month old IW) and he's healthy other than the flea allergy BUT I got him Frontline finally so he should be fine. I'm still giving him allergy pills and powdering his butt a few times a day! What a geek he is! But everyone at the vets office fell in love...people forgot about their boring old poodles to come and meet him. "He's so well behaved for a puppy his age!" one woman said. Ofcourse he is, he's my baby!!
And by the way, Frontline better be great and I mean GREAT... not one single flea will I toletate in my home or on my dogs.... $85! I'm going to find a place on line to order it. It must come cheaper than that! That's $15 a month per dog.... 2 doses for each girl and 3 for Finn. Had I know I would have just shaved them!! On the phone she said $15... she didn't say I could only buy it in packs of 3... Man.  But I'll be glad I did it when I don't have to powder Finns bum anymore!

I didn't even think of that! I did give each one a full dose. I have been doing flea baths, brewers yeast, garlic...anyth ing I could think of. I even resorted to picking the feals off by hand once cause I didn't want to irritate his skin by bathing him again. I will keep a good eye on the all and see how it goes. If they stay flea free I won't dose again and I'll try splitting a does between them. How long after a dose does it take for the fleas to die? They got theirs at about 4 today and they're all still scratching.

Nicker!!  My computer went on strike, probably because of the long hours I was making it work! So I shut off my internet (since it doesn't do much good without a working computer). I've got it fixed enough to do SOME things and I get free internet through school now but it's DIAL UP!!!  I only get 50 hours a month so I'm still not on much.... But I have missed you big much!
So no, it's not just you... I have not been here, but I'm getting back into the swing of things!

You know what else works great for fleas in your carpet?? Boric Acid. It's CHEAP! You can get it at the grocery store, just sprinkle it on the carpet, bare floor, your couch, dog's bed, etc. Rub it in, wait a couple hours, then vacuum it up. It will not only kill the fleas, but spiders, flies, roaches - anything that touches it.
