RyGuy Posted February 16, 2012 Report Share Posted February 16, 2012 Hi All, I just rescued a 4 year old BC and will post an introduction and history about him later this week. Needless to say, he has fleas and I am 100% confident he had them before he came to the rescue facility as I am the one who rescued him from his former home, and took him to a shelter to be evaluated, neutered, and then officially adopted by me. I brought him home today but soon discovered he still had fleas and there were tiny pencil tip sized black spots on his skin as well, and I am told that is the excreatment that the fleas leave behind. Needless to say, I immediately returned him to the shelter/rescue facility and have requested that they take a look at him and treat him before I bring him back home, as I currently have a 2 year old lab/golden mix and a very worried mother living at home What kind of treatment is there for fleas and what would you suggest my course of action be? Regardless, I will be vacuuming and cleaning the house big time for the next few weeks Normally the area I live in is not very prone to fleas and ticks but this dog came from out in a rural part of Colorado and had been chained up for all 4 years of it's life outside, and never cared for by it's former owner, other than being fed and watered. Thanks! Ryan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
