[Summary: Thomas Joseph found a flea on his Husky. Now he tries to make everyone afraid of fleas.]
Yes, it happened. I found a flea on one of my dogs. I was sitting there last night at dinner, minding my own business when my Husky came over to seek attention. He's the cutest thing you'll ever see with the lightest blue eyes, and a white and copper coat that is thick and luxurious. He's digging the cooler weather so is spending most of his time outdoors. Except for dinner time. So he nudged me and I leaned over to pet him. Holding his head in my hands I looked at his face and saw a speck. I figured at first it was dirt since he loves to dig. Then the speck ... moved. My heart sunk. My pup had fleas.
Now I give all of my dogs Frontline Plus, which is supposed to do a pretty good job of keeping fleas (and to a certain degree ticks) off of them. I follow the directions closely, so I was surprised to find a flea on him. So I grabbed the pyrethrin mist, worked a few good sprays onto his face, head and the remainder of his body and then proceeded to treat the kennels with an additional spray. I'll probably have to move up my Frontline Plus application to 21 days as opposed to the 28 I routinely wait between doses if I continue to see any fleas.
