Fleas and No Thank You

Ipsy and Gizmo

Apparently, if you don’t get 3 consecutive days of hard freeze over the winter, flea eggs don’t die.

Well, guess what? We didn’t have that in New Orleans this past winter, so we’re seeing the effects of a “bad flea season.”

We’ve been doing everything we can to keep the fleas off the dogs, including using advantix, but about 2 weeks after i applied advantix, i noticed fleas & tapeworm in/on gizmo. — ACK — Anyway, he’s got his medicine, been bathed thoroughly (again), and he’s now got another dose of advantix.

We’ll see what happens from here.
