Would you happen to know how much oatmeal I need to use? Do I cook it like I normally would? I have a 28 lb. schnoodle.

I have never used actual oatmeal. I use this:

But, I think what you do is put oatmeal in like pantyhose or something like that and then put that in the water and let it soak for a while and sort of dissolve a little bit into the water, so it's not like you actually have oatmeal floating in the water.

No you don't! You have a 28 lb. Schnauzer/Poodle mix.

Herschel is one of those, too. We call him a terrier mix.

you might want to take in a fecal sample to your vet for your dog..

fleas are great for carrying tapeworm and tapeworm isn't a common intestinal parasite the "usual" pest control(Sentinol, Advantage etc) can protect against.

Thanks for the advice but we did the fecal test a while back. Nothing came back. I noticed today that he has what looks like mosquito bites all over his lower belly. I also found another flea. I have bombed my apartment once and that did nothing. There is another dog in the household but it's my roommates. He is on Frontline as well. He will be gone for 2 weeks so I'm going to see if this changes anything. This ordeal is stressing me out!

Just to point out, what "flea dirt" really is, is small dried specs of blood, so just putting water on it should liquify the blood again, and it will be red (of course) and you know its flea dirt
