Man... What a night!
(You dog lovers will understand)
Up all night long with Little Mud. He's having a reaction to a new flea preventative, Parastar Plus, and been acting as if he's lost his mind. guess he has. He keeps running around in circles, growling, and trying to scratch and bite the spot of application which is between his shoulder blades where he can't reach. The itch/burn must be pretty bad because he's actually a tough little guy. Numerous baths to remove the Parastar has not worked. Puppy tranqs and antihistamines? Nope.
Now, he really appreciates us humans with our long fingers and thumbs. He looks at us beseechingly; pleading with his eyes for a scratch of the impossible to reach itch. (Hmm... Think I read that line in Penthouse Forum back in the 70s)
Time and no sleep is the answer, we hope.
I could go into a Vet and Parastar rant, but, too tired. I will say that there is now a generic Frontline Plus that's identical and much less expensive than the original and Parastar.
Think I may try a puppy tranq.
