yesterday,just by chance,while brushing vinnie i discovered little black thingies at the end of his tailbone,sure enough,it's flea-poop:yell:
i have not seen any live fleas and vinnie is white,should be easy to see,but i sent hubby to get some advantage for the cats..
i cannot wait for this terrible month to be over...first my boy rocky,then my broken wrist and now fleas:frustrated:

Oy, when it rains it pours, that's for sure :( Poor you Chico2...enough is enough. That is three for you so the bad luck is over. October will bring better times, I am sure :goodvibes:

Oh no :grouphug::grouphug:. Hopefully you caught them early. Of course fleas also can mean tapeworm :yuck:

Hopefully this is it and next month will filled with nothing but good news :pray:

Oh man. Chico, I really hope this is it for the bad stuff. It's been such a difficult month. Hopefully, you caught the flea issue quickly and there aren't too many around. :pray:

Only one pill is necessary. It's in the mail. With the Advantage you shouldn't have to worry too much.
Things have to get better mf. :grouphug:

Chico I am so sorry your going through this...as for the tapeworm I do have experience with this and you will know if you see things on the bum area. This will be too much info I am sure :D but it will look like sesame seeds around the bum. As the worm exits is breaks into tiny segments. The kitty will begin to have a feroucious appetite but it will be very obvious if they have them.


Tabitha and Bomber had that when I first got them as kittens. The vet gave them one needle each to kill the worm and they were fine after.

Good luck mf.

don't forget to treat the house too....those stupid flea eggs can lay dormant for something ridiculous like 7 months!!! (i myself learned that one the hard way)
