I am waging war today!
Perhaps not what you would expect to hear from me, especially after yesterday’s peace post.
But there are some critters without whom the world would be a much better place.
I refer, of course, to those blood sucking parasites we all know.
What am I talking about?
Little Monkey has fleas!
And it is all-out war!!
Treat the dog
Treat the environment
Repeat till victorious!
post script: This was not the post I had intended for today, but by the time I had waged my all-out war, I was too exhausted to be creative!
It is more than three years since LM last had these visitors, so we’ve done very well. The flea and tick season has just begun; if she’s going to get them it is usually this time of year.
The reason she rarely catches fleas is because she keeps away from other dogs, even when mingling with 30 or more dogs in her weekly socialising classes. She must have picked one flea up during the last class, when all the dogs were lying very close together doing stays. I choose the calmer more stable dogs for her to lie next to and then she’ll tolerate them. Unfortunately, one of the dogs must have passed on this unwelcome visitor!
