"I'm looking at the website. It looks like sentinel spectrum adds praziquantel to kill tapeworms but they're otherwise the same. I use the old original sentinel. Both of them claim to prevent flea eggs from hatching but do not treat adult…"

"The new one from my vet is a topical and is supposed to repel fleas, ticks, biting flies and mosquitoes.  I threw away the box and I can't remember the name of it.  It is a generic and very new.  It attracts dirt like crazy and…"

"We have to do fleas out here and once in a while ticks - I found a dead tick on Clancy this summer - thanks to Frontline it was dead, but with Frontline, the flea or tick has to bite the dog, so that isn't pleasant."

"Karen, I saw that you give Jasper Sentinel.  I notice Sentinel Spectrum kills adult fleas and ticks. Is that the one your vet recommends?"

FDA’s new warning about flea meds

if this has already been asked and answered, I apologize in advance. I still struggle with finding everything I want here. Lol! I received a notice from Whole Dog Journal recently advising people to hold off giving their dogs and cats four flea preventatives due to an announcement by the FDA. Here is the article: …See More

"Just to keep things straight, , the minute amounts are (according to one source) because of their potency.  Which is why there is worry about using the u diluted oil."

"It appears that the active ingredient in this product is neither tea tree oil or aloe, both of which appear at the very end of the ingredient list. The second ingredient after water (and therefore, what makes up the largest part of the product) is…"

"Also, the best topical sprays I have found are the ones that contain praxomine and oatmeal. I used those successfully on Jack's feet when he was having a flare."

Profile Information

About Me:
I am married, have one son, retired from the insurance industry after 35 years, like to cook, eat, play tennis, shop, films and am a bit of an introvert. I am usually happy and upbeat and love my Doodle! She rounds out my life with unconditional love and 'she-completes-me'. ;D
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
I have a female F1 apricot mini GoldenDoodle named Ruby Skye who was born 09/16/16. She is currently just 15 pounds. She still looks like a puppy. She's very athletic and energetic and smart. She is a cuddler, wanting to be near me or on me most of the time.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Breeder
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
I previously owned a Golden Retriever and wanted that gentle, loving personality, but didn't like all the shedding. I researched this breed and Labradoodles. I originally put a deposit down on a Labradoodle, then changed my mind and called the GoldenDoodle breeder and went that route since I had a Retriever before. I made the right choice for me.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
Walk around a lake that is close by, play fetch outside with her ball, take her with me in the car on errands, let her sleep on my chest on the couch at night, watch her enjoy a good Himalayan dog chew or bully, training, taking her with us on trips.
Does your doodle(s) shed?
Nope!
Who grooms your doodle(s)?
The Soggy Doggy, Santa Rosa, CA
Favorite Doodle Products?
Slicker brush, metal comb, Comfort mesh harness.
Relationship Status:
Married
