Q. My puppy 8 months has reaction to Flea powder seeing vet to morrow anything I can do to help in meantime not eating small sips of water

Answered By

A. You should definitely try and wash all of the flea powder off of your dog using a mild dog shampoo. If your dog is lethargic and not eating or drinking you should try to find a vet that can examine and treat your dog today instead of waiting until tomorrow. Also please discuss with your veterinarian the best flea product to use on your dog in the future.
