I’ve never heard of a flea before last night, but by the way my family talks about them, I don’t think they’re nice little creatures. It’s a good thing I don’t have them!
Why do doggies get fleas? Well, I know why NALA got fleas! Mommy forgot to give her her topical flea medicine. I didn’t get fleas… know why? Nala and I get different flea medicines, and I had already gotten mine. How lucky am I?! If mommy didn’t give me mine, I might have caught fleas from Nala, or gotten them from outside too!
You would have thought that mommy would have learned her lesson after her May, 2010 incident with fleas. She was late giving Nala her flea prevention medicine back then too.
Poor Nala… she ended up getting a little haircut (which mommy said she usually gives her in the summers anyway), and she had to take a pill called, Capstar… AND get her topical flea prevention medicine. Mommy also had to spray all over the carpet and furniture.
Look at these glove pictures taken before Nala’s surgery… You can see how bad her right eye was then, and how much better it looks today!
Nala hates the rubber glove that
mommy uses to give her the flea medicine.
She hates the very sight of it.
She hates when the glove touches her.
I don’t know why she’s so scared of the glove.
She’d really rather not touch it… ever.
These pics were taken last night. You can see how good Nala’s right eye looks.
After discovering the fleas, mommy gave Nala a haircut.
Mommy and MT couldn’t believe how small Nala looked.
They said that she shrunk!? Is this possible?
They said that she used to be a lot bigger than this!
No matter how small, no matter how short her fur…
we still think Nala’s cute.
Don’t worry, Nala. We’ll get rid of those darn fleas!
I guess this post could be a good reminder for you to make sure your family takes care of you! Make sure they always use flea prevention.
Of course I welcome your tips on getting rid of fleas fast! Mommy vacuumed and sprayed the house with flea stuff from our vet, and said that it worked perfectly last year. Now I’m just gonna keep my paws crossed…
Woofs & hugs,
