Are Fleas Immune?

Fleas terrify me, I don’t like to think of them…they are so disgusting little creatures which is why i use FrontlinePlus on the pups every month but because of some talk going around which has made me switch over to NexGuard and this is why.

The talk around the vets is that the Topical flea and tick preventatives are not working as well as they use to…its like the fleas are becoming immune to it so to say. This terrifies me because for about 6/7 generations of puppies in my family have use Frontline with no problem what so ever, but i guess the times are changing along with the fleas…

Now long story short of why I am making the change from Frontline to NexGuard because my little cousins dog has fleas…she comes over pretty much every day and brings her pup with her and because I am terrified that my pups will get fleas (which i found 2 on them already) i freaked out and bought flea sprays for in the house, bedding, clothes, outside the house, they make it i got it because i can’t stand fleas.

Blogmas Day 16/25: Baby Its Cold Outside

The winter is here and the temperature in the city has dropped. Although I love the cold and cuddling inside a nice warm house watching Christmas movies, drinking hot tea and wrapped in a blanket…the pups and I still need our exercise, so here are somethings the pups and i do when its cold outside.

Hide and Seek

This is a great game to play and it will also a great mental stimulation for your four legged friend. Sometimes I hide treats BUT majority of the time we hide from each other.

Memory

This is a great stimulation for the pups nose, what i do is i hide the food with the pups in the room (one at a time) and than i take them out of the room of the for 30 seconds and then release them to find the treats.
