For Those Using Frontline

As some of you know we have recently been having some issues with fleas. NO FUN! I tried everything: shampoos, sprays, collars, drops, even some homeopathic methods – but nothing seemed to work. Teeny and Tootsie were beginning to scratch themselves raw in some places. Finally I threw in the towel and called our vet for advice.… Read More »
