anyone know how I can get rid of them? My poor puppy is being driven mad by them. He's had tablets off the vet, flea powder and spray and bath stuff and they still wont leave him alone.
what else can I do?
thanks, I got the program ones for him and the cat has had an injection of the same stuff. The cat never seems to scratch or anything though and she sleeps on my bed so they would be all over that too if she had them like he does. They've both had capstar tablets too from the vet and when I did go back he just told me that whatever flea eggs are on my dog now wont hatch but that doesn't help im get rid of th elive fleas that are on him. He's about 8 months old and starting to get bald bits because he's nibbling at himself so much.
Oh and just incase you're wondering, he definately ate the tablet
I use frontline too and it's great, if you use it on a cat make sure it's on a bit of the neck they can't turn and lick otherwise you get a cat foaming at the mouth and racing round the room. It sounds like your pup may be getting an allergic reaction to them, maybe the vet can give him some antihistamines or whatever the equivalent is for dogs.
My dog went through a period of scratching and became patchy and red. It turned out to be an allergy to the fleas. The vet gave him an injection and I had some cream to rub on the sore bits along with him being frontlined. After a while it all calmed down but I was always careful to make sure I kept his frontline up to date afterwards
