Toby had fleas! For the first time. :)
A couple of weeks ago I noticed that he was scratching a lot more than he usually does, so I looked through his coat (Toby's coat is so full that you can barely see his skin) and saw some black residue, but nothing more!
Since he wasn't on K9 Advantix or the other brand -that's because he's more of an indoor dog and also I don't feel comfortable using pesticides on my baby - I kinda knew he was having guests for dinner in his coat :)
So I waited until the morning, read reviews about both brands, decided on K9 Advantix and then I drove to Petsmart to buy it. Before applying the stuff on Toby, we checked him again for fleas, because a day earlier I couldn't see anything, only this time, my poor baby was being attacked by an army of fleas. We picked off as many as we could and then we let the pesticide do its work. We didn't give him a bath before, because Toby has an issue with taking a bath, but that story is for another post :)
Needless to say, we're so glad that we got rid of those yucky creatures and we hope this was the first and last time :)
P.S. My boyfriend just asked me what was I writing about, and I told him that I wrote about Toby's fleas; he replied: "oohh..that's personal!", but, hey, this is a personal blog :)
