question Fleas & Puppies (Jessica)
Posted: 8:09:30 pm on 7/1/2006 Modified: Never
 
<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><P><EM><FONT color=blue>Hi there, my name is Jessica, I live in T.H. Indiana and we just recently became parents to 3 new puppies, our cookie is the proud mother. But we just found out that cookie has been carrying fleas. Our yard is INFESTED. I'm really sad about this whole thing, because we just lost one of the puppies about 2 days ago. It broke my girls hearts. Now I believe that they have been attacking the other two. They are only 3weeks old, and I don't know what to do, we can't afford a vet or even to pay for any vaccines or anything. We were just thinking that like in my home state Montana, the fleas there aren't as bad, so the babies would be alright. I've never had this problem before. We have one that's gasping for air now...and I am trying to stay strong and help out, but unlikely I don't know what to do. I can't just watch them die, and I can't let my kids either. We've sprayed the house down with raid and then we got this raid flea and tick remover where you can put on your dogs. We didn't put any on the puppies yet...but I don't think it would be a good Idea if we even tried, but I don't know what else to do?! If any ideas can you please email me and let me know what we can do??</FONT></EM></P> <P><EM><FONT color=#0000ff>Thank you dearly,</FONT></EM></P> <P><EM><FONT color=#0000ff>Jessica @ jaylee24@hotmail.com</FONT></EM></P></font>

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black">Never put any flea products on puppies under 8 weeks. All products state they are not safe. Even spraying your house might be the reason the puppies are dying as they can affect the puppies neurological system of the pups. The best thing you can do is wash with water and try and wash the fleas off with plain water, maybe use a little soap to help stun the fleas enough for the to wash down the drain. Please get the mother dog spayed by contacting your local animal control or local rescue groups for low cost spay/neuter clinics or free clinics. Animals should not suffer like this and it is up to their owners to be responsible and not bring more puppies into this world where millions are euthanized every year because there are not enough homes for them. Even if you find homes for puppies, puppies given away for free have a 51% chance of being euthanized in a kill shelter as adults when the cuteness of a puppy has worn off and the new owners tire of them and their normal puppy behaviors. All puppies must be vaccinated or they will eventually get parvo and / or distemper. If you are not able to afford their vetcare, please do not have puppies. It is not fair to these animals to suffer and die a slow and painful death. </font>

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black">Vinegar on a cotton ball dabbed on the puppy will help with the fleas.  Don't get any in the puppies eyes or nose.</font>

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><P>I agree wholeheartedly with the first responder to your post.  Consider this one of life's tough lessons and learn from it.  Count your blessings, spay your dog and visit a shelter to see where these cute little pups will most likely end up when not so cute anymore.  </P></font>

I really feel for this girl, she writes in trying her best to help these puppies and all she gets is lectures....shame on you people.....she could be like alot of people and just throw them in the river to die, but she tried and she got lectured, so if I were her, I would never enter this forum....I know I won't visit again. Learn to love people like you do your animals and you might be able to talk decently to humans. Furthermore, when a fellow animal lover writes in for help and can't afford a vet....don't be a crap head....all she wanted was some help not some snotty ass remarks and lectures. By the way, sometimes, no matter how careful you might be....puppies HAPPEN....I know....my husband is a VET!!

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black"><FONT face=Verdana color=black size=2><STRONG>Hi My name is Nicole.... Give this girl a brake! All she asked was what to do! Dont give her a problem she does not have to get her dog spayed! There is a way to get rid of most of them. I had the same problem fleas are bad! I just got a little puppy that is as young as yours. What i did was washed her with warm water with Dawn dish liquid it does Not harm the skin or hurt you puppy. I bought mine from a lady and my poor puppy was flea infested. All you have to do is wash her with dawn dish liquid, let her sit with that on her for about 5 minutes.. while you scryb her every so often and get a flea comb and comb her through!!  I did this with my puppy twice and now she is flea free!!!! So dont listen to all those other jerks that dont know anything about puppies! Just do this repeatedly with all the dogs and make sure the house is flea free to! I also had a long hair puppy that i had to do this to.. Yes it is some work but i know that your a good owner and that you care!!! Dont let anyone tell you any different!!!! Ignore thoes negative people that only beleive and drama!! Try what i told you to do And e-mail me @    nicolehockenberry16@earthlink.net</STRONG></FONT></font>

Oh, so you think its ok for a puppy to die from neglect and flea bites??? And for the mother dog to keep producing puppies for them to die from too many fleas? If so, you are part of the problem and are too ignorant to even realize it! Fleas are parasites and draw blood with every bite. Puppies and dogs die from anemia from too many fleas. If you think this is an ok way to live and die, you live like this and let your offspring die from fleas! Probably on welfare too arent you?

<font face="Verdana" size="2" color="Black">You are truly ignorant!  Your remarks were extreme and totally uncalled for.  People like you should keep their opinions to themselves.  I'm sure you are a lonely individual and understandably so.</font>

i took in a stray pregnant female recently. i fed her (ate me out of house and home), gave emotional support, etc. she gave birth to 7 beautiful pups. she ran out in the street and got killed so i have the pups. the humane society won't take them because they are less than 8 weeks old, and the shelter has no room (i will never give them money). i have one dog, a foster dog, and another stray to feed; so it's very difficult to raise 7 pups. they are flea infested, but i use doc ackerman's or only natural pet herbal defense spray. these are natural products made from herbs and essential oils. and they work! i agree pet should be spayed or neutered because it's hard to give these pups away. but please do not berate other pet owners who need compassionate answers to their questions. people of all walks of life love animals and should be allowed to have them regardless of station. i'm sure people who cannot afford to spay and neuter their pets do the best they can to make ends meet. garlic powder also works. that can be bought with food stamps. allivet.com has chewable tablets that puppies can take.

It's about time someone said that, I agree wholeheartely. Vet's can be very expensive and someone without warning, people can have financial problems, don't judge!

FYI - Almost all humane societies, shelters and some rescues have funds to pay for all or almost all the cost of a spay or neuter. Please contact your local humane societies, shelters and rescue groups if you need assistance with a spay or neuter. There is help out there for anyone who seeks it and requests help. There is no reason for unplanned/unwanted litters in this day and time.

Judgemental people like some of you are part of the problem with society today. This girl did not say anything about intentionally letting this dog get pregnant. And you don't know anything about why she can't afford to get the dog spayed or maybe doesn't want to. She came to this website for tips and help, as did I. I am a very responsible breeder and raise beagles. I have had probably ten litters and never had one get fleas til now. I was panicked when my sweet little babies started scratching and came here to try to find some solutions. Jessica, my puppies are five weeks old, so a bit older than yours, but my vet said to use a tiny bit of frontline on my finger and dab it on the back of the neck. I did this and in two days there were no signs of fleas. You can use just a tiny drop. Also, try some dawn soap like one person said and a flea comb. Its a bit of effort and won't get rid of all of them instantly but might help. Good luck and ignore those people who seem to love animals more than people.

Sorry for not being able to post new topics (but you can still reply to all current topics and there is a wide variety of topics so hopefully most areas are covered). We have temporary had to suspend new postings of new topics because of spammers posting inappropriate messages. Please read over the next post or the post labeled Advantix, you can still reply to all current postings. Your dog is having a reaction to the product and it should not be used on him/her again. If it were me, I would immediately give him/her a bath with Dawn liquid dish detergent. If he/she seems to be reacting, you can give 1 mg per pound of Benadryl which usually comes in 25 mg tablets. It also would not hurt for the vet to check out your doggie as when they have skin irritations, they can easily turn into staph infections. Good luck, Admin
