My boxer dog has been violently scratching herself lately, and closer inspection yesterday revealed fleas. I was absolutely horrified, as she’s never had fleas and is always as clean as a whistle. I religiously put Frontline on her in the spring, with another couple of applications during the summer, and that is always enough to keep her bug-free.
This morning I popped into the vets to buy some anti-flea product, and he said that there are more fleas around this year because of the warm weather. So check your animals, they may have visitors!
