Okay i've battled fleas before. This is the first time i've had to deal with them as it was cooling off. The house is clean. The exterminator is scheduled to come BACK OUT thursday and finish spraying the yard and the house. Shasta got flea combed, bathed, let soak, and flea combed while still soaking for better chance at getting the little annoyances and then rinsed and flea combed again. Over kill, possibly. Unfortunately getting Riley or Shelby in the tub isnt an easy task even leashing them in there and i'm looking for a decently priced do it yourself dog wash out in town. Shasta was difficult enough to handle in the tub because of my back. I'm looking into getting Neem Oil but i have to be able to find it out here. Getting some capstar from the vet later this afternoon to help me out some but i'm seriously POed about this. Our friend brought her dog over last week who is bathed regularly but i'm seriously convinced she's the one who brought the fleas in. I had FINALLY gotten them gone the first time and now they're back. Freaking hate this crap. The floors that can be mopped are being bleach mopped again, everything else is getting sprayed down. I'm so frustrated!!! Does anyone know of a quick very effective cheap way to kill these little b*****ds? I'm at my wits end. On top of the food allergies Riley has he's also allergic to fleas so now he looks like a patchwork quilt! They've been on advantix and frontline and those didnt work. Shelby had a bad reaction to the frontline and Riley had a reaction to the advantix. generally they're inside dogs so unless someone comes over with their dog who has fleas, we've not had an issue. I dont need anyone bashing me for not doing a good enough job so please if you have nothing nice to say keep it to yourself. Riley is proving to have allergies to most everything out here and he's never been good with chemicals anyway. Shelby is in perfect health except for her issues with frontline and now the fleas though thankfully she isnt allergic to the bites like Riley is. She just scratches. Riley tears himself to pieces. Shasta is also not allergic but all the scratching is annoying and i'm sure the cats are NOT going to be happy if i have to bath them too. Neem oil. I'm thinking about going back to sprinkling cinnamon in their food as it helped last time. Also brewer's yeast again. thats all i can think to do right now.
