Beth G Posted August 8, 2007 Report Share Posted August 8, 2007 Well last week I got my friend's rott, Porshe(the rott)'s shots done, and today we got her spayed. The vet is also fixing her up, as she had a severe flea infestation, and has a horrible flea dermatitis allery and skin infection from scatching at it. So she is on pain meds, for any pain from the spay, and antibiotics for the skin allergy. And she is looking alot better and more comfortable right now. She spent the night last night, and we took her in today to be spayed early this morning. But man she was crying, and itching and chewing at herself, ALL night!! I have NEVER seen a dog itch that bad!!! She had a wicked BAD flea infestation. The moment we got to the vet's, he gave her some Capstar to kill the fleas on her immediately. So she got some relief right away. So now the capstar meds, will aid the Program flea meds I put her on. She is now home here, and flea free(as our my dog's who are on preventative also). I vaccuumed all over, and now that she is on both preventative's, the pain meds and the antibitoic, she is much more comfy. Right now she is sacked out cold(She probably lost ALOT of sleep due to all those fleas). She will stay here for 2 weeks to heal up her skin, and to recover from the spay. We will keep her in the crate so she can rest. Next we need to help her owner flea bomb his house, and help rehome all his feral cats and kittens, and then fix the momma cat he is keeping so no more kittens. I think he just got overwhelmed with animals and it got out of control. So we are helping him out. Also, because all it takes it one flea to bite her and she will have another allergy attack(Poor girl), We hope that his house will be mostly flea free when we take her back. Any suggestions on how to erradicate a flea infestation from HELL?? I hear bombing a house, won't do it all. And I don't want to send this dog back into flea hell.
