  • I finally found a flea in Utah...

    I could have DIED! We don't know where it came from, but I've got Revolution and he's gettin' it tonight.

        There are no fleas in Utah! When I use to groom in Sandy, UT I remember the first time one of my co-workers saw a flea. She flipped out. She didn't know what it was and was freaking out. I was dying laughing. The dog belonged to a trucker so she got the fleas out of state somewhere...it was funny though. She was affraid to touch the dog the rest of the day.

        Sorry to hear that your baby got a flea. Must have had some contact with a dog that's been out of state.

          Hate to tell you this, he probably got it from a dog or cat from out of state at your clinic. I've seen a couple at PCVC. But they were on dogs that had recently moved from out of state.

            What?!?!?

            He must have picked it up from the clinic. I would have died!

            I did see two fleas last summer, but I think both of them were dead and both dogs had either been to California or been in contact with a dog from out of state.

            I'm itching just thinking about it! I HATE bugs! A month or so ago I looked at a ear mite under a microscope and I haven't recovered yet.

                  Too dry (only Nevada is dryer than Utah) and too cold in the winter.

                    I think it has something to do with the altitude as well. I'm not sure though.

                      Yes, that is what I miss about Winnipeg Spikey. Seeing a flea back there is a rare occurance,not like here,where they would take over the province if it wasn't for most of us responsible pet owners fighting back LOL. If you REALLY wanna get grossed out,look at the little vampire,under a magnifying glass or low xx on the microscope. EEEWWW they are hideous.

                              ha-ha, vapors! that is a good one! A side of tapeworm segments splattering allover the wall when you HV a dog with fleas and a big tape,gave my daughter the vapors. She couldn't HV the poor old Airdale who was so afflicted,she was pale as a sheet.
