I have heard it said that every creature is here for a reason but can someone please explain to me the reason for fleas? While you're at it, how about ticks? I have a problem with fleas. One single flea is all it takes to drive me psycho! At this time of the year in particular I seem to get a few fleas. My mom had to take me to the V-E-T two weeks ago because I ended up with hot spots where these little pests bit me. I went on steroids and antibiotics. My mom gave me a flea bath and put some junk on my back. A couple of days ago I started itching again and she found 4 fleas on me! She went and bought me an expensive flea collar and dipped me in a pail with flea killer in it. The V-E-T gave her more steriods (very low dose) but I haven't taken any of it. She also gave me some pills to take for 3 days that kill fleas. I haven't taken them yet either because the flea collar seems to be working and my mom doesn't want to kill ME with chemicals. She washed all the bedding in the house and vaccuumed the floors. We have had fleas in the house before but she didn't find any this time. My mom thinks I'm getting them from the stray cats so she's considering buying flea collars for all of them too... Who would think such a little thing could cause sooooo many problems? Is there a flea hit man out there anywhere? I could probably pay you in Beggin Strips.
