Re: [FH] Lasix - SCHEDULING VS DOSAGE
- Hi maureen
Your doing really well by yuki
Im really glad that she is better wi the new dosage schedule!
Your doin everything in ur power to help!:-)
Well when karma sicked up the program flea liquid I waited another three weeks to give her another dose,because of it not bein good for heart (chemicals)
She kept the other dose down two weeks ago
But it doesnt kill adult fleas n can take 30 to 60 days to eradicAte the flea life cycle.
Vet doesnt wAnt me to treat her wi anymore chemical stuff
Capstar kills adult fleas but she no well on it
So vet said spray flat wi chemicals only solution
But im loathe to do it
Hooverin,change beddin every day,flea comb etc
Tmoro gona put baking soda n salt on floors ,room at a time,natural wAy to kill them
If doesnt work might have resort pesticides
But karmas so sensitive to things like that
U try ur best to avoid toxic things
But feels like im fightin a losing battle wi these bloody fleas!!!!
Anyway,pleased to hear wee yuki still fightin on
Shes a wee survivor isnt she!:-)
Must love her mummy as much as u love her!:-)
