Dogs on Thursday -- Flea Edition
After twelve years of dog ownership, you'd think we know how to keep those nasty bugs away from our precious fur balls. You learn something new every day, and in this case, fight a new battle every day. Bucky has been scratching a lot this week, we thought he was having a reaction to a new canned food we tried over the holidays. Last night we found five fleas on Trinket, ha! there is the answer! Funny thing is, it doesn't bother Trinket at all to be a flea warehouse (a vet called him that a long time ago during one of our first rounds of flea war). I think we still have a dose of Advantage left so I might just use it on Bucky. He hasn't needed it for a good long time, but for whatever reason, we are fighting fleas in the winter. Of course we stopped the new food, Bucky is back on kibbles full time. He says he rather liked having salmon every day.
