Tips for Applying Topical Flea Medication on Your Dog

I am being ignored.  I had the audacity of applying flea medication to my dog.  She’ll letting me know that she is suffering the indignity in silence.  She’s afraid of the flea medication tube which why I am being ignored.

It’s sad. I’ve written in the past of how I give Misha a sedative on the 4th of July to help calm her nerves.  She relaxes while World War III plays out in our neighborhood.  Without it, she runs around the house with a…
