Around the time we began our move, we noticed Sammy was a little more itchy than usual. The weather was a roller coaster, and his winter coat was coming in, but then shedding ALOT on the warm days. We both attributed alot of it to that, but it was still ALOT of itching. Took a closer look and found nasty little black things in his fur.
Not a fun feeling. Not at all. Erik got to give Sammy a flea bath while I started cleaning and washing the bedding. Sammy doesn't usually get baths from Erik, this might be the second time, and this was a more serious bath. He was a little bit uneasy about this bath.
I felt so bad for my itchy little puppy. There weren't too many fleas, so we definately caught it fast! Sammy slept so well last night, the itching might have stopped his sound sleeping, as well as it must have taken all his energy to make it through this, oh so traumatic situation. Haha. Today though, he is a bit tender where the fleas were. They were contained in his tushy fur, and around his back legs. It was well washed, then brushed post bath. Now even just petting him there, he seems uneasy about. For his sake, and ours, I sure hope this is the only flea bath he needs. And we NEVER see these little buggers:
