A number of you have expressed concern because of the huge amount of fleas inhabiting your yards and infesting your Greys this year. Because the Greys are so very sensitive to so many over the counter products, and even prescription remedies such as FRONTLINE, which has caused seizures in many Greys, we recommend that you use "ORIGINAL BLUE DAWN DISH DETERGENT" for the immediate control of fleas on your Greyhound. DAWN is 100% safe for the dog and it kills fleas on contact. You can bathe your Greyhound as often as necessary, without fear of harming the dog in any way. Simply use "DAWN" like a regular shampoo and watch the fleas die on contact!! Many users report that DAWN works even when the most popular flea shampoos fail!
Adams flea spray
is also safe for Greyhounds
A message from a dog-owner regarding Comfortis
I hope this will keep someone from losing the love of their life!!!
I lost Mia (Treceder's I've Got It All) on July 11, 2009 at 3:30 a.m. from using Comfortis. This is the first and LAST time I will ever use it. For those of you that don't know what Comfortis is, it is used to kill fleas and it is a chewable tablet.
I gave it to all my Boxers and my 2 Bull Terriers. I gave it to them on a Thursday night with their meal. Darby started throwing up a couple hours later and then again Friday morning. Mia started throwing up Friday morning. Mia threw up 2 times and it was coming out like water out of a fire hose. What we did not know at the time was that she had thrown up so hard she tore her stomach loose. Some time during Friday night and Saturday morning her stomach twisted. We rushed her to the EMS vet, it's just 3 miles down the road from us, but we were too late. I also have 2 more Boxer puppies that have had upset stomachs from Comfortis and I'm just now getting them back to eating again.
I have talked to a Vet at Lilly, who makes this drug, and yes they do know it makes some dogs very sick and have had some twisted stomachs from other breeds. But I was told that what few problems where reported was within acceptable guide lines!!!
4 Boxers out of 6 at my house where made sick and 1 died from it. I don't call that acceptable.
Lilly has even called my Vet to see how healthy my dogs where. Mia was 8 1/2 years old and healthy as a horse, never missed a meal and if you did not finish your food, she would gladly help you finish it. She went everywhere with me. I bottle fed her ... she was my baby and the love of my life.
