Flee, Please -Fleas!!!


I can not believe how flea infested this simple mutt of mine is!

Why in just the past 10 days now, he has been bathed at least 4 times. Prior to that, he was bathed twice plus, my neighbor even "dipped" him in flea dip too and still, they come (the fleas) and run rampant on him!

These sapsuckers must be the hardiest insects known on the planet, that is my opinion of the situation anyway!

 In all my years, and having had several dogs and a few cats too over that period of time, I have NEVER seen a dog with this many fleas and ones that absolutely refuse to die too!

Poor Sammy. I'm sure he gets very tired of scratching and trying to rid himself of these pests -just as I have been trying my level best to murder the little buggers too.

Any suggestions for some foolproof flea removal method that I haven't previously tried on him in just the past month?

I've even used those little vials that you poke at the base of the dog's neck and then, smooth it into the skin which is supposed to kill ALL fleas in X-amount of time and keep them all Dead as a Doorknob too for some specific period of time -a month or maybe it's an optimistic three months supposedly that your dog will be flea free and they don't seem to do diddly squat for the poor little fella at all either!

What the heck am I doing wrong anyway?

And why are my fingers now itching like crazy too?

Uh oh, I have not had a major problem with fleas but I have known people who have and it sounds like a horrible chore to get rid of them. I wish I had some magic herb to tell you about, but I don't know anything that would help you. If I hear of something I will let you know. Good luck.

For every flea seen on a dog there are many more & larvae in the carpet. Its necessary to spray the house as well as treat the dog.
Hope that you can get to the bottom of it soon, for Sam's sake.
Maybe they are resistant to the chemicals. Maybe your fingers are intolerant to the chemicals and causing the itch.

Nuts in May

Of all of the pet issues we've had, fleas are one thing we've never experienced. I hope you can figure out how to put an end to them once and for all.
