Summer is the time when fleas really wreak havoc. We've had a bad time with them this year, largely because we have so many squirrels and other wildlife. All the dogs are on Frontline Advantage Plus and that helps. We also have to do premise control by tilling up the soil and liming the kennel area. We used to be able to use Dursban but that has been banned by EPA for several years.
One of the things that you can do is to check over your dogs, especially around the tail area and along the inner thighs. We are going to have to start the puppies right away on flea preventative because we noticed that they had several on them. Unfortunately, it seems that this year may be a bad year for the blood sucking insects.

Fleas! Oh my goodness that is exactly what was wrong with my woofs. I felt terrible that I had missed it. Thanks for the reminders...we all need those don't we!
