    Default Blood sucking devils

    I notice Benson licking the air while looking up and figured maybe his tail pocket was getting infected. So I bathed him as usual and found 2 fleas by his crotch. Poor guy I don't think he knows how to scratch himself so that's why he was doing that strange move. My question is what is used best for English bulldogs to fight and repel the fleas. I was thinking of Frontline they sell at petco but how fast does it work?

    Frontline is an option..... we use Sentinel and Vectra 3D. Also, if he has fleas, you can use Dawn dish soap to bathe him... as it will kill the fleas.

    We have used both Sentinel and Frontline for Frank and both have worked well with no adverse side effects. I know that Frontline worked very quickly for us.

    I personally steer clear from applying synthetic products on my baby so I use a 50/50 apple cider vinegar/water spray to deter fleas and ticks. I spray Mr.Ziggy all over his body including paws and underside before going out and wipe and spray again once we're back in. I also use lavender oil, a few drops on his shoulders and tail for the same purpose. I have a diluted lavender oil with water ready in a spray bottle since I use it alternately with the ACV mixture. Lavender has calming properties so it makes my baby relax and sleep well. I once saw a dead flea on him as well as a flea walking away from him!

    hmm, we've never had an issue with fleas in canada, but now that we've moved, this spring should be interesting. I'll have to keep watch for some critters...
