    You should see the size of the ones doing solo efforts demolishing my mint plants. ARRGGHH. I'm sure they'd eat the dog if she sat too close to the mint.

    I use sentinel because its an affordable all in one tablet that doesnt wash off.

    For sores I use paw paw ointment from the chemist as its non toxic and heals well.

    For a dog prone to fleas (I walk my dog twice a day in grass areas) I would suggest finding out a healthy dose of garlic. Yes it is related to the onion, and in large doses can be bad, but I have heard of many people using it as a natural flea preventer.

    Mosty I find mint eating caterpillars by feel. I feel every bit of the mint plant especially the bits that are freshly ravaged... and the squidgy bit is a giant green mint coloured caterpiller, that you have to remove and squash. There are also tiny squidgy caterpillers that leap off and hang by a thread - but you have to kill those too.

    Or you could spray with spinosad / success caterpillar killer.

    "healthy dose of garlic" - I think is maybe 1/4 of a clove. You will be able to tell by the farts. I know people who say it repels fleas from their dogs, but if you keep your dog away from other dogs with fleas or cats and out of long grass etc - they don't get fleas.
