Question from cheryl d.
My Maddy is 6 years old and a HUGE girl -170 lbs. and the sweetest girl in my world! Trouble is... She is miserable with the itching. I been to the vet and tried changing her food to no beef, chicken, or pork. I also had her on allergy pills that cost $140 a month. I simply can’t afford that plus the expensive dog food, plus continuous yard treatments, etc. can you recommend a flea pill that is affordable? She is also on prion for incontinence. Will it affect that medication too?
Our vet answers:
is an oral pill used to treat fleas. It is a daily treatment and only works for
24-36 hours, after this time you will need to administer a further tablet. You
can administer Capstar anytime that you see fleas on Maddy but do not give her
more than one treatment of this per day.
If people have good results with the medication that they are currently
using then I don’t usually recommend that they change it. Unfortunately, we
don’t stock any allergy pills. I recommend speaking to your vet to see if they
can help reduce the cost of the treatment.....
