Health Questions & Answers



My Shih Tzu, Bailey, has started itching constantly until she whines and her skin is raw. I have purchased Frontline Plus but she continues to scratch and whatever is biting her is biting me and my husband leaving small round bumps that are very painful. Please advise us on what this may be and what to do.

Can you use a fine-tooth flea comb and check for fleas or flea debris? Frontline doesn't work 100% in all cases. Sometimes it takes a while to get the number of fleas reduced. I have talked to clients that have had better success rotating to other products when the fleas have developed resistance.

Please read about our shampoo Defendex which is nontoxic to the pet but can kill the insects (fleas or mites) on the pet. It will offer some relief. I like to use it so that I can spot whether there are any fleas present because they fall off into the rinse water. However, if you have fleas in the house they may jump back on your dog when they get hungry. Please let us know what you find and then we can try to help you with your problem once we have a better idea of what you are dealing with.

Best regards,
