Re: Any cheap solutions to remove fleas from dogs?

hmmmm .... a "resident swarm of flies"
now that shows some imagination !
well done !

BZ Nicole (bravo zulu if you aren't Navy savvy)

but since Nicole brought up the lack of fleas in "I'llAskHer", it made me think to remind you about mosquitos and heartworms ....

----- which i KNOW they have in the P.I. 'cause i lived there
- they are WORSE than flea and tick problems
- what are you doing about that ?
- does your rescue outfit test for filaria ?
- what test do they use ?

the only remedies and preventions that i know of all cost money, and there are more than one way to treat a dog who is positive, so a good vet is important

Lee, whenever you bring up CR, it brings back good memories of the P.I.
been to many coastal areas that sound just like it if you substitute SanMiguel for the coco locos
- Palawan was my favorite before it became a tourist trap

***Chris....I hope you are still watching your thread and not run off by all this off topic extraneous nonsense

Re: Any cheap solutions to remove fleas from dogs?

i'm sure you probably already know this but i'll post anyway

a dog who is positive for filaria can be started on meds and most healthy dogs will be fine for years and never get worse. the worms don't actually kill the dog. the accumulation of the adult worms is what does the damage

a dog who is positive will usually not show any visible symptoms for quite some time ... often when it does, it is too late

that's why testing is important to me
.... IMRO ....
....in my rude opinion //lol//

Can I be on the list too? Not the one Rick is on, but any kind of naughty list will do just fine.

And hello Chris Perez. I wish I could answer your question in a useful fashion. Unless someone brings them up from the states we don't have fleas where I live.
Actually, I will put you up with Lee. Both of you can string a coherent thought into a cohesive sentence while applying the lessons of basic grammer and usage.

And, Nicole, I did say it was a short list but I never actually mentioned how many lists I have. You, Lee, Bob, Howard, Susan, Connie, Matt, etc are on the list of people who's opinions actually matter to me.

I stayed far away from living near tourist traps. Our grocery store is located in a prime to tourist area but I didnt live there. It was a couple of hours from where I was living in a tiny mountain hamlet. When I went to the store which is on the coast I could go to the beach and suck on Coco Locos while watching the beach babe's stroll by.
