My poor Ally!

My adorable long haired tabby, Ally is a little over a year old now. She has had fleas since she was born ( we rescued her from an infested home). We tried several medications, such as Frontline, sentry, ect.. so my friend recommended a flea collar. We went out and got her the white rubber flea and tick collar. In the first few days it helped a bit so I decided to leave it be. Today I found a very disturbing side effect of this horrible collar. She has had it on for about a week. I noticed some rough hair around the edges of the collar and immediately ripped it off. All the hair on the bottom and sides of her neck was just completely raw. I freaked out and put neosporin and gauze on it . Then I found the terrible reviews on the Internet! Very, very disappointed. Will definitely be doing searches before I purchase flea&tick items again.

First time dealing with dog fleas

I have a Shetland sheepdog we just got a month ago. She’s 8.
Very shy so not much around other dogs. She somehow developed a flea infestation…
Gave her 2 flea baths 2 days ago, plus applied the Hartz liquid you run along their spine. I still see fleas jumping around in the groin area.,how long does it take for the fleas to die off?? Can I bathe her again even though it’s only 2 days? Thanks

Way too Long

This has been going on for a long time now. About 15 years ago, I got a call at work from my husband to tell me that our cat Kali was having seizures. I live 40 miles from work, so it took about an hour to get home. When I got there, I thought she was gone-she was out with her eyes open.

We rushed her & the package of flea drops with 1 bottle missing to the vet. He was puzzled, but when he saw the package, he remembered seeing the same thing at another vets office. The vet called the other doctor, and got the treatment. He gave her
An injection of Diazepam, a good bath, and kept her overnight.

My husband & I had both been in the Army, & we looked at each other in shock. We both remembered that Diazepam was in the self- injector kit the Army gave as a Convulsant Antidote for Nerve Agent.

Fortunately, we were able to bring Kali home the next day. She became a less active cat after that.
This has been going on for way too long!
