This is how I feel right now (my SOS sign was backwards and unsuccessful)lol.

Ever month we apply the flee-repelent on my dogs little body, per the doctor to fight any flees.

Just as I thought my pup’s flees went away, I was laying on the couch with him an hour ago and saw the bug with my own eye running towards his butt from his belly side.

I ran for the flee brush and it was too late- it was gone, lost in his baby hair, and hopefully did not run into his butt. Is that possible?

I feel so bad for the poor guy he has this bug running all over his body and I can’t catch it.

The most horrifying part for me is the image of that insect running. I feel like it is running all over my body.

I showered, I already did laundry, and I am itching.

I have had these bites on my arms from him last last couple days. 1 of them finally swelled down. Last night it looked like a giant spider attacked my arm.

I also have a stuffy nose and stared sneezying. Could this be related to a flee reaction?

Is this normal? I hope its not ticks.

As you may be able to tell, I want to scream!!

    • This seems like an unwanted Rear Entry!  Better shout a big “NO“... if you need other language help, refer to the blog from David.happy

    • I don’t think a human can get fleas. They can bite you. I know you have to be careful with ticks. The carry lima disease. I am not sure if I am spelling it right.

    • Fleas are always annoying. Did you try a fogger as well. I remember whenever I had flea issues I tried to do everything simultaneously, you know fogger, dipping the dog, flea collar, powder and benadryl for myself.

       I hope you get relief soon for you and your pet.

    • buy a flee comb, they help with finding the lil buggers. A tick will not run around, it will attach itself to, usually, the under belly.

      After applying the flea repellant, it can take a small amount of time for them to all die off.  

      As for you, they can bite...get calamine lotion if it itches. Try the benadryl if you get allergic type reactions. They have non drowsy now too.

    • If the fleas have been an ongoing problem, it’s likely that they have infiltrated your home and, while the dog is treated, the fleas are still hanging around.  Have you de-fogged your house?  It’s important that you clear your home and your dog from the fleas.  HTH

      I took him to the vet this morning because I could not find the flea, but they put the flea med’s on him and now he will be shedding them...and I will be doing loads of laundry.

    • We used to live near the beach.  Our place was flooded by a neighbor’s sand-plugged shower.  We used the only fan we had which was a heater (BAD IDEA!).  We were immediately infested with a zillion fleas!  We called flea busters.  They use a salt solution that is supposedly non-toxic to children and animals.  Fleas jump on and off animals and people.  The solution dehydrates the fleas and they eventually die including the eggs when they hatch.

      Might give it a try.  (On a side note:  It lasts about a year but you can’t shampoo your carpets.  You have to use Chem-dry or something to clean them that isn’t wet.)

      Good luck!
