I though all garlic and onions were poisionous to dogs?
I have given him some in his food but I don't want to overdo it. Plus one of the cats is always eating his food

can i only get this capster stuff online?

I put some avon sin so soft lotion on him thinking it would at least slow the fleas down so I could get them. I have only seen like 3 fleas on him since. one on his head which I didn't put stuff on and one on his paw.

also the lotion really conditioned his fur! So easy to get a comb through it

You can get capstar from your vet. I found it is less expensive from the 'advertised' online sites, but you have to wait for it to be shipped.

Hmmmm....never heard of using skin-so-soft on animals .... I remember my mom putting it on us kids when we were younger to repell mosquitos though. From what you say...it must be okay for pets too.

I used to use the skin-so-soft on my horses for flies....never used it on dogs or cats....

I get the generic Capstar off eBay-exact same ingredients.....and much cheaper-plus more caps...see the link in my other post...also, I got it within 3-4 days of ordering it...

DE might not be as safe for consumption.. I know I read today it can scratch up the intestines of rabbits.
