I guess it isn't because they're on him and they are itchy. i picked up that DE stuff and i have a citrus extract juice cooling off from making it. I am going to put the citrus extract on him and rub it in to kill the fleas. i am going to be using the DE on the carpet/bedding ect. i know to wear a mask and im going to keep him out of the room for a while after i use it so he doesn't inhail the dust cloud.

Like Diaper rash stuff? A&D. I plan on getting him a big plastic thing for his head so he can't bite at his rump till these heal. Don't need them getting badldy infected.

Fleas you can see. They leave black dirt behind and can usually be seen running all over. My suggestion would be to treat the dog with revolution incase its a microscopic mite of some kind.

I feel your pain. I am going through the exact same thing with my dog. We found a flea on him at the vets office and my doc put him on a antibiotic, steroid, and capstar. The antibiotic helped to get rid of the irritation on his belly, and the capstar helped, but only for a short while. The steroid did nothing but make him pee a lot. He has been on Frontline continuously for almost a year. I am going to try bathing him with oatmeal. If that doesn't work, who knows what I will do Good Luck!

Sometimes Advantage will work when Frontline doesn't.

Yea, I just switched him to Advantage. I also switched his food from Nutro to Canidae, and am now starting to put fish oil in his food. It really is a frustrating ordeal. I almost feel as if my vet is giving me the run around. That's why I started doing my own research. Hopefully all of this along with the oatmeal baths makes a difference. If not, I'm afraid I will have to go back to the vet.

Keep in mind that vets receive kickbacks for recommending certain medications.
