- [ ] We have two problems. - [ ] We found out Cosmo has fleas, and we’ve been trying to get rid of them. - [ ] In the process, we were shaving him down with a buzzer, and accidentally cut the flap of skin where his hind leg meets his torso. - [ ] We’re concerned about the cut, because it’s in an area that has a lot of tension and movement. - [ ] We put some neosporean on it. - [ ] What should we do? - [ ] Secondly, he has fleas. - [ ] When we first noticed, we gave him a dose of the frontline plus (for tick and flea) - [ ] Then 24 hours later, we took a look at him with a flea comb. We found at least 15 live fleas crawling on him, and 2 dead fleas. - [ ] Now we want to resolve this flea situation as soon as possible. What should we do? - [ ] We want to rid our dog AND our house of the fleas, so we don't get a repeated infestation. - [ ] Can we do a flea dip and board him with you? - [ ] Can we give him a bath with any flea shampoo right now and continue this weekly? - [ ] Can we just use Dawn dish soap and give him a bath and fill the water up and try to get the fleas off of him?
