Its called "Ovotrol"
Kittens and puppies under 3 pounds you do as SMkie said and spray a towel and wrap the baby up in it.

I had it cleared by three different vet offices just to be safe.

Both pups are doing well.

I think that's just a pyrethrin-based spray ... been around for years.

I had nightmares for a week afterwards on those kittens. THere were so many that when the kittens opened their mouth the swarming fleas fell in. You couldn't even see their face. THey were lucky to be alive at all. I had to mop them off with another cloth that didn't have the stuff on it. Made my skin crawl. I helped the neighbor bomb her home, change the bedding and that was the end of that.

I generally prefer just to use soap and water on babies. Change the bedding..treat the area with borax and work it in good if there is carpet with a broom. BUt these were so bad there just wasn't any other way.

I share your thoughts. The first thing we did with these babies is bath them with Dawn, But even then well we were drying them we could see them swarming in their ears and see them in their fur. We used a flea comb and tried to get as many as we could off.

Then I posted here b/c it was just SO horrible.

So far I havent seen any fleas on them since we used the ovitrol.

Today we bombed our house..burned their beddng. (extreme but best way) *crosses fingures! THANKFULLY our dogs are utd with Frontline. ty frontline.

And I have to keep capstar on hand just b/c it works with some of my rehabs and when I need it I have ot have it. So when they turn 4 weeks they will have that.

How awful! How can someone be so uncaring and lazy as that woman. What a horror story about these pups' Mom. How very sad.

That sounds like an extreme infestation of fleas. Fleas can kill dogs. I'm so very glad you saved them and got them fixed up. You are an angel. I hope they continue to thrive and get some good forever homes when the time comes. Kudos Mandie!
