Well, the flea is decreasing, the flea poop around his ear, neck and back are barely there. No blood coloured water when bathed, visible flea running around in the skin if looked closely but very little compared to few days ago.
I have been using the flea powder, feeding garlic reguarly.
Can i make mix a paste of garlic to water, and spray his skin under the fur as well??? will that do him any harm rather than good??

He has flea but we are trying something for it and if it does not work we will try something else, but for now we are playing safe.
His hind legs are almost- almost okae, he can raise his tail to the point it is almost parallel to the ground, he can wag his tail almost like when he did not had distemper.
He can run and change direction without falling down, he plays a lot.
and his prey drive is back, he has to be leashed if walked outside, again.
His drive was almost capped, guess we will have to train him that again.
He eats plenty, drinks plenty, sleeps plenty. His nose is almost normal and does not look no way near as bad as nose you get when you google "distemper nose", those pictures made my wife cry so much
His pads area also not bad and is almost similar to normal GSD. His nose does look a little different and a bit dry, but now where as as bad as the Google ones.
He barks, plays, eats, sleeps, even poops normal so i guess it is safe to say he is almost there.
we are hoping within next 30 days we will upload a video of Tson playing y all healed up, write a long post about what we went through

We did not had to do a stool test, and the deworming has been postponed for next week.
We have been using a powder for flea, we will be going in for deworming and flea check next week and we will see what to do next.

The powder is basically for Tick control but he says it will work for flea as well, we have an appointment for next week, if it is not working we will look for other alternatives.

we did had a vet visit and the vet recommended a powder which is eatable and instructed us to apply on his fur twice a day. Other than a few sneeze due to inhaling we have had no problems, for some reason the vet has postponed the deworming to next week.
Other than that, we are giving him garlic paste in his food, crushed garlic paste, 1/4 of spoon twice a day, and 1/2 spoon crushed paste pumpkin seed as you advised.
We couldn't find black walnut and we didn't even looked for wormwood.
We feel the flea are decreasing, the vet gave us few options, one was to give him some kind of medication to eat, that was the fastest method, another was a kind of pesticide to be sprayed every two days and monitor him not to scratch with his mouth of lick the spray, the last one was a bit slow one but it was safe, so we took the last option.
ETA: it is just a neem based shampoo, i have to search around for neem oil but i can find it if needed.
Please let me know how to use and etc about neem oil.
