Seeing A Few Frustrating Fleas is Nothing Compared To What Is Happening In Your Home


I hate it when I see a flea on my dog.  First – I know if I find one flea – there are going to be plenty more that I don’t see.  Plus they have to be making her miserable and uncomfortable and we just can’t have that!  And what else is it that I am not seeing?


By the time I see a flea or fleas on my dog, it is entirely likely that there is an infestation of fleas in the immature stages lurking in my home.  We have a newfoundland and we may be able to see a handful of fleas but then there are far more that we aren’t seeing under all her fur.  But even if you have a shorter hair dog – the issue still exists that you will not be able to see all that are under their hair/fur.

If we find adult fleas on our dog – we can be sure there will be eggs that have dropped off her as they are laid and they develop through the immature stages in the environment – our environment!  These can all find their way pretty easily to our carpets, bedding, couch and even between floor boards. All of this means that with good flea control, we can expect to continue to see fleas for several months as all these life stages mature. ( accessed May 10th, 2016).


How can we keep this from getting out of control?  Well, we start with prevention in the first place!  We use flea control regularly, on time, and we never miss a dose!




We have a very busy lifestyle – we work, have special needs kids, spend huge amounts of time at the barn etc…  As you can see our dog is quite the comedian and makes us laugh all the time.  This is especially true when I am taking photos for blogging.  She has to be a model in all of the photos and always has a look like – how’s this? …and this?




We need a solution that works well with our busy lifestyle and BRAVECTO® (fluralaner) is an oral chew that my dog loves and is happy to have.  It kills fleas for 12 weeks with just one dose.  Now I know 12 weeks is a long time and it can be difficult to remember when the next dose is due – this is easily addressed with the sticker reminders as well as text and email reminders.  I never have to worry about when the next dose is due!


And what makes our lives so busy?  We are constantly at the farm and enjoying ALL animals!  That and competitions and shows…




Head to your vet this week and ask about BRAVECTO – your dog will appreciate it!  With  BRAVECTO fleas will die quickly before they have a chance to lay eggs and create an infestation on your dog or in your home.

    Please stop the use of Bravecto Flea Chewable. Riley my 2 year 9mo. Bedlington Terrier was give this safe drug form his vet on sunday may1 on may 2 he didn’t know the world he was in. Merck said they were sorry for the problem and they would give me $500.00 if I would sign a release. No way, no one should have too go thru what Riley and I went thru for 31 days.
