took skeeter to the vet


skeeter my pet chihuahua thanks you all for your kind advice.i took him to the vet and they give him a shot and the frontline treatment.sevin dust was again suggested but when i told them about the children they suggested the same thing you all did in the blog earlier.try to get something safe that won't hurt kids.they suggested also bombing the room but its hard to get kids out in hot weather and i have no relatives near.my van needs freeon so i can get my cool air running again.lots of things to do on the agenda.....

Entry #521

That is the very best and least expensive thing you could have done in the long run since you have babies. Am sure the shot will help Skeeter feel much better, too... after all that's your third 4-legged baby!!!

One more thing that you can do, since you can't bomb the room. My vet told me this. If the room has carpet (fleas breed in carpet). Vacuum the heck out of it everyday. What I didn't know was that the fleas can escape from your vacuum. So if you have a bagless vacuum, just take the containter outside and empty into a plastic bag and tie it up and pitch it. They will suffocate. If your vacuum has bags (and you don't want to use a fresh bag each day, then each time you vacuum take the bag out, put it in a plastic bag, so they will suffocate and then re-use the bag. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't leave the stuff you just vacuumed up in the house. It worked for me. Good luck! Been there...
