Flea Medication

If your dog/cat is very itchy or you see little black spots on them, these are usually fleas.  The flea medication is topical.  You put large dots of it from the top of the neck down the spine, but not so far that they can turn around and lick it off.  Do not bathe for 3 days after.  You can bathe in blue dawn dish soap (put a ring of it around the neck as high up as possible and soap all the body.  If you can, let sit for 5-10 mins, rinse and repeat.  If not, just rinse and once dry, apply the flea medication.  If your pet has a really bad infestation, talk to us about Capstar. (We have Provecta and Saviour which is generic for Advantage II)

*** I understand that receiving vaccinations for my pet comes with potential adverse effects. I am aware that such a risk is present, and am willing to accept it. I understand that any reaction that occurs is a result of my pet’s own immune system, and is not the fault of the The Fix Project, veterinarian or technician that administered the vaccination. I also understand that I am responsible for any charges incurred for the treatment of any such reactions and should seek immediate help from my regular veterinarian or animal emergency room.
