    Default Ladys Health is Declining..

    I have been living in this current house for the last 4 years, and have never ever had a flea problem. In the last 2 months, Lady has become absolutely infested. They are obviously coming out of the ground because nothing I do is keeping them away. Im awaiting the frost.
    Anyway, fleas are attracted to 'weak' dogs. Lades is losing weight, her coat is thin, rough and dry. She has dandruff and scabs from scratching so much. I squeezed her anal glands for the first time last month, and her whole back end beneath the tail is thin of fur.
    Roly is completely fine.
    She looks so terrible, and I feel like the absolute worst dog owner in the world. I put so much effort into the health of other peopls dogs, I let my own babys health deteriorate
    Anyway, im bringing her into work tomorrow, hopefully I can squeeze her in for a free check up.

    About to post a photo.

    I hope they can squeeze her in too.

    Something like Sentinel monthly and frontline every 2-4 weeks and a couple of flea bombs sounds like the go.

    Dogs with allergies to fleas can become very depressed. Here's hoping that's all it is.

    Will they do some bloods as well do you think?? I hope so.

    Awww poor Lady, she's so gorgeous. I hope it's just the fleas. I guess if there are that many of them sucking away it would make you feel pretty awful. Hope you find out exactly what is wrong and she makes a speedy recovery.

    Is she still eating ok?
