    Default Matilda's vet visit

    Hey everyone!! I know it has been awhile. Been busy with work and messing with the guy who hit my truck insurance company. Anywho.... I took Sassy Pants to the vet today, we have been having issues with fleas around here. I found out my poor baby is allergic to fleas and she got a skin infection cause of it. Dr. G told me to give Matilda a bath in Dawn dish soap to get rid of the other flea treatment and to paralyze the fleas on her. She gave me Comfortis Blue to try for the flea treatment. It is a pill and to make sure she eats before she takes it. She is also on antibiotics that I was able to get at Walgreens ( how awesome is that??) She is on a presciption savings plan there and the script only cost me $7.

    Oh, and thanks to the heat, my 47 pound bully girl only weighs 41 pounds now. Otherwise she is healthy as can be.


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    Good job, Mom! Same thing going on here in Tyler, Texas! I'm thinking you can
    make a water w/lemon juice solution to spray on between baths to keep them off.
    My cat almost died from Frontline and I do not use ANY on my pets now but I am
    putting Mr Brutie on the Comfortis for the itching relief. My neighbor uses this on
    his bully and she has no itchy skin issues and kills the fleas, they love it!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
