Fleas Be Gone!

FF's father has an indoor-outdoor cat that apparently brings fleas in and passes them to Little White Dog. Then FF brings Little White Dog over to my house while he's at work and now the fleas can get to my dog and the two cats. Ugh.

So last night we had an all-out assault, even though there's been no evidence of the nastiness on the animals that reside with me. Let's not take chances though. So all furry beasts had liquid meds applied to their neck-backs. The disconcerting part is that my vet only dispenses the kind for dogs that is fatal to cats. My poor pup is stuck spending 24 hours locked up because the cats will destroy any room if the door closes. He doesn't mind because he's getting extra treats, but I feel bad.

Of course, I would feel worse if he got fleas.

Aieeee! What a pain, poor little dog, be sure to give him extra hugs too, LOL!

Why in the world would the vet give you such a treatment knowing full well you have two cats? Does not compute.

Because it's the only kind the vet dispenses.

"Neck-backs" I love it. Sorry for your doggie though.

BerryBird said...

Oh, I get it. The vet is getting kick backs.

Fleas **shudder**

Sorry you are going through that! I can't believe there is a vet that doesn't have something for CATS!!!
