I have to talk to my holistic vet about the flea issue. My last dog had very few problems with it, never on any flea meds of any kind. I think twice in her life the groomer found a single flea on her and dipped her, though now I would use some kind of herbal flea shampoo, probably. We have a lot more urban wildlife here (squirrels, sparrows and pigeons, stray cats and outside housecats), so I have a feeling this area is more likely to be flea infested. I am (so far) determined to avoid chemicals. I hope it works. At least she is half white, and white around her rear and tummy, so that might help me spot them, anyway. I'll use the nematode stuff on the lawn, and I'm still researching something I can apply on her skin/coat or feed that will help repel.
