View Full Version : Fleas?

06-22-2009, 10:46 AM
I have some 9 week old puppies I am fostering. I have been informed that they were treated with frontline (or something similar) about one week ago. I have had them since Saturday. They still seem to be serious scratchers, and sometimes when running they will yelp and sit down and nip or scratch at themselves. This makes me think they still have something. I am inquiring further into the frontline situation. In the meantime, has anyone had any experience with herbal remedies? I can't remember the herb...or essense...but the pet store suggested it to me last time I fostered. I haven't called there yet to ask again what it was called.

Just wondering if anyone has tried anything non-chemical, and had success.

Thanks in advance!

I use to use a drop of tea trea oil in the shampoo before bathing.

Hopefully they don't have any skin conditions, not to scare you but you don't see any sign of ringworm or anything do you?

I think I have some tea tree oil....but, I don't think that was what they recommended at the pet store.

I don't see signs of ringworm....other worms, yup! :) But, not ring worm. I will look again tonight.

Fostering puppies, and Jonah in da house, and NO PHOTOS?

I'm with Karen, FOR SHAME, Joanna! (I know I spelled that wrong, can't remember how you spell it, sorry)
