Flea treatments are already HORRIBLE for dogs but for Dorothy it seems worse that any other. She acts like it stings her when it goes on her skin, then it must irritate her because she begins to scratch it and if mommy's not looking, she'll sniff it and lick it right off her paw! After getting away with this and making herself sick a couple of times, mommy found out and decided to start dressing her in my old Halloween costume after each flea treatment application (it covers the entire neck so D can't reach). This doesn't go over well at all! As you know: D hates clothes so she pouts and is miserable until the liquid soaks in and the shirt comes off - several hours later.
So the whole two-second flea treatment application turns into an ordeal at our place. If you come to visit on a day Dorothy's wearing my jersey you'll see this:
|Dorothy looks miserable|
|Sometimes she'll just go to bed and lay there, miserable|
And I feel sorry for her, so you'll see me watching over her like this:
Most days out of the month mommy says I'm insensitive or dismissive (whatever that means) about Dorothy but on flea treatment days I'm the perfect older brother.
