As many others, time was short, Vet’s office wasn’t open when I was in town to pick up flea mecication so I went to Wal-Mart, bought Seargents Gold thinking I don’t have a problem, and this will keep one from developing! Ha!
I have a minature daschund who is the absolute light of my life and two precious rescue dogs which I like to refer to as “Designer Dog” aka mutts. I picked up the medication on Saturday 9/6, went home, my hubby read the directions and applied to all three dogs. Marshal Dillon, one of the designer dogs, breezed through with no problems. Miss Kitty, the other designer had minor problems, shaking her ears, rubbing her back and hiding, but didn’t seem to have any major problems. Heidi, the dashchund, cried, shook, hid, every imaginable distress behavior showed up in this dog. We do not have weekend vet service available in the county I live in so I did my best with her. Bathed her repeatedly, washed her back and neck with cool washcloths, kept ice packs on her as long as she could stand to stay still. We aren’t through with the vet clinics yet, but you can bet this company and Wal-Mart are going to hear about the misery my best friends have been subjected to as well as being presented with an outrageous vet bill for having to treat my babies for something totally avoidable.
