My husband just flipped out!
December 12, 2015 11:57am CST
I was on the computer minding my own business when my husband came in and said, "Ruby has fleas!" She had been up in his chair with him and he noticed a flea on his hand...so he ran around the house so I could see the flea! I was shocked, Ruby is 4 years 8 months old and never had a flea, not one. I didn't panic, I called her vet and asked for suggestions. I was told Nexgard is the best but they were out of it. She gave me the name of a vet that has it and they are open all day Saturday. So off to the next town we went. What a nice place, quite nicer than where we go, we might have to switch. Anyway, we got the Nexgard, I only bought one table, which is good for 30 days. We also bought a spray for the chairs she gets in and the carpet. We have mostly hardwood flooring but we do have two large area rugs, and rugs need to be sprayed. That was a $57 trip, but Ruby is worth it. My husband just sprayed our bedroom, Ruby's bed, and two chairs in the living room, the carpet and now he's keeping her busy outside. She can't come back inside until everything is thoroughly dry. We were told due to the warm weather flea season is still bad, well I guess so since this is a first for us. Let's just hope this works and ..... bugs be gone!

I'm allergic to flea bites, living in the tropics it's really flea as in flea here' i think they breed faster, yes the best way is to destroy the breeding grounds, and give the dog a regular bath, there are also a lot of natural remedies on the net that might be less toxic, have not tried it yet, if they work or work faster than the store bought chemicals

Oh goodness, sorry that happened. It reminds me of the dog I had in childhood who got fleas one time and we had to flea bomb the whole house. We had to stay out of the house for some hours before we could come back in.

you won't believe this but with ALL 8 of my dogs none of them have fleas why?? I have NO IDEA but thank god I don't but with the one Aussie inside she has allergies so she's on the allergy pills from the dollar store cause the vet we took her to saids it wasn't fleas it's allergies so she's on them for the year.
