We are doing EVERYTHING possible for the fleas we found on

We are doing EVERYTHING possible for the fleas we found on both our dog and cat. Vets, Best topical tx.'s every 3 weeks, Terminex, Spent over $1,000. on household carpet, upholstery, shampoos, bombs and we just did them (Advantix Plus II for the dog and Frontline Plus for the cat as well as anxiety and flea pills for the dog). Been vacuuming and washing in HOT water every day practically and our babies are still scratching and licking A LOT !!! My husband also used the treatments about 6 days ago (every 3 wks.) and shampooed the 11 lb. dog with a soothing shampoo 2 days ago. We're going out of our minds. The dog needs grooming and we think she may have brought them home from there so we don't know where to go for that either. Can you please help?

Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I

Hi! Last night after I picked my dog up from doggie day care I noticed he was walking slower than normal. When we got home, he seemed shaky on his legs and didn't want to walk a lot. He also has trouble sitting. While I was out today he pooped on the floor, which he never does - he always waits to go outside. Last thing - some of his paw pads are ripped, but not to the point of bleeding, just the top layer.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: Just the top layer of the pads on 3 feet are torn. But not to the point of drawing blood, it seems very surface level.JA: What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Finley, he's 1JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Finley?Customer: Noe *nope

I have a 10 month old puppy. He has been limping for the past three months. I've taken him to two vets and they have both done xrays and found nothing. The last vet thought there could be an infection in paw so antibiotics. Now on day four of these with no change. By night he is hopping on three paws and while sitting his leg is sort of shaking. I can touch the entire leg and there is no notice of pain. Any ideas?

My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days

My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days this past Saturday. A lab/chow mix at 60 lbs. two months previously the vet said his kidney levels weren't right but after 30 days on azodyl 2 in am and 1 in afternoon his levels went normal. He ate, walked, slept, everything was fine even Friday night! Sat morning he didn't want the morning pills wrapped up in turkey like he usually loved. He threw up and I cleaned it up, rested with him for a while and then we went outside. He hunched to poop but he couldn't, did that twice and then he looked at me like he had no idea where he was, what he was doing. He collapsed at the front door and his breathing became shallow, his gums and tongue pale. I touched him, dug my nail into his paw and he never flinched. What happened to my dog? :(

I have a Bichon Frise and I've had her for about 7 months

I have a Bichon Frise and I've had her for about 7 months now. She was a story when I got her. She HAD heart worms fleas. The whole nine yards. The thing that stuck with her is "allergies" I've researched her breed and on treatments and nothing has seemed to help. Lady consistently bite herself all day long. The only time she stops is if she's eating or sleeping. Other than that she's biting as her paws. I give her allergy medication once a day, she's had the allergy shot that suppose to last 2 months (didn't work). I even put socks on all four of her paws to keep her from bitting. She's bites at them until they are bleeding and swollen and sometimes doesn't even stop there. I've even tried home remedies. I don't know what else to do. Please help
