question Flea Problem, Any Suggestions? (Taylor)
Posted: 7:30:13 pm on 5/21/2006 Modified: Never
 
Hello all,<BR><BR>I'm having a problem and I need some guidence on what to do. I have a pedigree german shepherd dog nearly 2 years of age now and I've been having him within my bedroom. Not so long after having him in my room I noticed that I started to itch and that I had bites showing on my body. So I gathered It could just be some bug in my room. A few hours later I noticed a little bugger crawling around on my monitor and it appeared to be a dog flea. After having wiped the monitor with a cloth I then went to bed. To my surprise I itched like there was no tomorrow and gathered that it had to be dog fleas as it was worse when on my bed and it had only happened since having the dog up here.<BR><BR>Ok so I've banned the dog from being in this room, and have also shampoo'd and treated the dog but the problem within my room still lies. I've washed the dovet's themselves, the sheets, the pillows and the pillow cases, I'm in the middle of doing all my clothes but I'm still finding myself itching slightly and also some of the little critters on my desk. I've had countless numbers of baths and washes but still I find myself itching. If i wash my clothes and bedsheets, then put them back on its clear that they are still in here and will only infest my clean stuff again so I'm at a loose end. <BR><BR>Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions, comments or anything on what I should do or on anything I should buy to help cure me of the flea. I've been reading about the foggers but I'm a little nervous on using that sort of tool in my room as I have so much electrical equipment (stereo, tv, expensive computer, router, digital box etc.). Do they damage electrical goods? Does anyone have any suggestions on what else I could and should use?<BR><BR>Thank you for reading and I eagerly await a response.<BR><BR>Best regards,<BR><BR>Taylor.

I've also thought about purchasing those spray cans in which you spray furnature and what not with to rid them but I have no idea if they are effective or not. Any suggestions? Exterminators isnt really an option as I dont have the cash and they are very expensive. Is there anything I can do that is very effective without having me move everything out of my room?

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><P>First off, if you think you are itchy, imagine your poor dog and the itching it is going through. You have to buy some Frontline, Revolution or Advantix and put it on the dog every month at least during the summer months. You can also buy a Capstar tablets and it will work for 3-4 days and will kill every flea on your dog within 30 minutes. YOu can buy spray that is safe to use in your home and spray. The flea eggs will be hatching every few days. Now that you have an infestation, you have to treat. Banning the dog from the room will not help if he is not properly treated. Treat your dog properly with treatment you buy from the vet and buy some flea spray you can buy at a hardware store or Walmart or Home Depot. YOu can do it yourself, just read the directions. If you dont get on it now, every time they bite, its a blood meal for the flea to lay more eggs. Its just going to get worse until you treat properly. </P></font>

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><P>When I first moved to Arkansas, I had no idea that the fleas here would be so bad.  They are not this bad where I come from (up north).  You can over bathe your dog and it will cause them to have dry, flakey skin. That in itself can be another problem for your dog. You can treat your yard, and you can fog your house, but the fleas can come back. Frontline works wonders.  My dogs have had zero problems with fleas since the first time I began the treatment. I know it can be expensive, but you get your moneys worth, and, when you took on the responsibility of having a pet, you must see it through and take proper care of your pet.  Please be sure to research any drug that you plan to use on your pet.  I used Hartz on our cat and it caused her to have the shakes. Never again.  I make sure that anything I put on my dogs has my vets approval.  Be sure to get the proper dose for the weight of your dog. Good luck!</P></font>

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><FONT face=Verdana color=black size=2> <P>Please be careful which flea meds you use on your dog.  Some of them have many complaints such as Hartz and BioSpot, but I think BioSpot may have been discontinued.</P> <P>Fleas are more attracted to people and animals who are unhealthy.  What are you feeding your GSD?  Diet plays a very big part in these things.</P> <P>LaHoma</P> <P><A href="http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/petfoodandvaccinations">http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/petfoodandvaccinations</A></P></FONT></font>

I have 4 inside dogs, live in the country and have fially conquered the fleas. At most Feed Stores you can buy Natural Chemistry DE FLEA pet shampoo and then once a month after their bath-CK9 Advantix. It's alittle high but believe me I've tried everything and it works. I buy the 6 months supply for 80 lbs. & split up between my 4. No more fleas or ticks.

You can put Avon skin-so-soft on your pet, or give it garlic pills, also put cider vinegar in their water, just a little, the pet gets use to the acidity. I spray my hands and rub the Avon SOS all over my pets. As for the bombs, read the labels, use the ones that are a can that sits in a plastic container of water, it all comes together. Put a bomb in each rom of the house and in the basement if you have one. Then leave the house, take the pets with you unless you can leave them outside for the time allowed on the box. The bomb does not harm anything in your house except the bugs. then vacuum the whole house and throw away the vacuum bag when finished, put it in a plastic trash bag and tie off.
