Customer Question
My dogs were exposed...

My dogs were exposed to fleas several weeks ago. I have flea and tick dipped them once a week for three wks, I have cleaned bedding and used a flea killing spray on surfaces per directions. I want to give some Benadryl. They weight about 35 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

They have been to the vet and will go again on Sat. I want to get them some relief though. Peppy and Piper

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

Nope, both are healthy, up to date on vaccinations and within a good weight. Peppy is 7 yrs old and Piper is almost 2 years old.
