Talking Lucy update

It's allergies and fleas
Lucy is on Prednizone now and treated with a different kind of flea medicine. So Things will get better for her. The vet said Lucy acted just like she felt miserable and wanted to jump out of her skin.
I've had hives (itchy) and the same kind of allergies. Lucy insists on sticking her head in all the long grass weeds and sniffing around. Our pollen counts right now are in the very high levels for grasses.
So I hope tomorrow will be a better day for her. We will get out for an earlier walk and my black doggy won't get so hot either.

Bigboy
Suggestions on getting the fleas out of the house are very welcome. Last night the only person itching was me! I've had some bites on my legs now.
So it look like I am the only person they like now. They never bite Dave.

Techie, great news! Casey is alergic to fleas (among many other things). One flea on him can do major damage. You can use foggers, but that means everyone out of the house for a few hours. I use Sevin-5 in the house and outdoors. It can be purchased at any Lowe's or any store like that. It's a powder that you sprinkle from a shaker can. I sprinkle it on the floors and furniture. I leave it down for a about 4 hours, and then vacuum it up. It kills everything. Fleas, spiders, any kind of bug you can imagine. I've been using it for years, and it works.
