Breeds in this area weren't bred for this area.
|Fleas, ticks and
We offer flea shampoo as part of our other services. There is usually a small additional charge.
Our flea treatment uses a non-insecticidal shampoo that is very effective when applied appropriately.
It works by acidifying the coat and skin with citrus oil.
This works very nicely as long as the dog is not further exposed to a flea-infested environment (If your yard has fleas, your dog will have fleas).
Here's the rundown of topical treatments:
Frontline: Kills fleas and ticks. Available over-the-counter
Frontline Plus: Kills fleas and ticks and claims ability to kill ticks in larvae stage. Available over-the-counter.
Advantage: Kills fleas but not ticks. Available over-the-counter
Advantix: Kills fleas and ticks: available over-the-counter
Revolution: Kills fleas, ticks, and heartworm. By vet prescription in USA, but over-the-counter in Australia.
We do not presently stock any of these but will apply them for you if desired.
We are considering stocking Frontline.
What to do if your pet is skunked!
1. Wash the pet immediately with whatever means and shampoo you have available. This will resolve 80% of the problem if done within an hour of being skunked.
Once the skunk oil sets into the coat and skin you will have a very aromatic life for a quite a awhile.
We have never encountered a skunk treatment that works, despite claims of the manufacturer.
All of the so-called skunk treatments we have tried seem to depend on lacing the shampoo with lots of perfume to cover-up the odor.
Does tomato juice work?
It might help because tomatoes
have high acidity. Messy and expensive.
A solution maybe?
Here's another folk remedy that has many advocates:
1/4 cup baking soda
1 quart 3% hydrogen peroxide
drop of dishwashing liquid
Make a paste of the ingredients, use immediately after mixing, work into coat, let sit 5 minutes, rinse.
The peroxide could bleach the coat but we've never had this problem.
We've also never used this concoction on a client's dog. Please try it at your own risk!
This particular remedy is attributed to chemist William Wood of Humboldt State University; we got it from the New York Times.
