Yesterday I tried Sentry Friprogaurd flea spot on for my dog the 44-88 lb one. She is about 40 lbs. I didn't give her the whole tube as we have 6 dogs and I sort of distribute it between the sizes instead of buying a different pack for each weight. It has been 24 hrs and the skin on her neck is really loose and somewhat swollen, is this just from her scratching the crap out of her neck or could she be having a bad reaction?

I will keep an eye on her, she is acting normal but the fleas were driving her nuts so she wasn't eating as much, too busy biting and itching. oh and it didn't work she still has fleas, I know your not supposed to but I put sevin dust on her and she stopped itching. I don't want her scratching her neck with it like that. I will call my vet in the morning to see what he thinks. Luckily I don't have work tomorrow.

hehe next time I suggest using python dust. Yep the same stuff you would sprinkle on the goats to get rid of lice, works wonders on house pets as well :) Have even used pour ons before on pets and worked well. Even my daughter has used a drop of ivormec on her rats and cleared up their mit problems they got when they bought an infected rat of craigslist

we use poultry dust on our dogs and their bedding it works well. after last summer we had to try everything we could think of. we also found a spray called cv-80d. that kills everything from flies to fleas. it is for farm and dairy. i highly recommend it if your house gets infested.

Too many of those flea treatments that you can buy at any store will cause negative reactions. And usually they NEVER stay as a calm reaction: The skin will literally MELT off of the dog. Please take the dog to the vet asap. Advantage costs alittle more but it is so worth it to make sure your dog doesn't suffer!!!

Sounds like a reaction to me. I never recommend people using brands others then Frontline(frontline plus), advantage or advantix (advantix is not safe for cats). I use to work for a vet and I have seen too many pets using other brands that have came in with reactions. They can be anywhere from itching, swollen areas all the way to seizures. Keep an eye on them and don't be afraid to call your vet.

That stuff can cause a reaction..my little rat terrier has a burn spot between her shoulders...it stays red and scabby and dry and wont grow hair...its been over a year since I used it!! We bathe our dogs in blue dawn with added Tea tree oil and Lavender Ess. oils to kill all the fleas. But not too often since it can be drying.
