Quincy has fleas. She's been keeping me up all night scratching, so I took her to the vet today. I was sure she didn't have fleas because she takes the preventative treatment. What I found out today was that fleas are so bad here that dogs have to take the preventative treatment, get baths with flea shampoo, and once fleas are present you have to get your house de-bugged. Crap. So I'm on the right track now, but have to get my house de-flead. This cute little (big) dog is sure costing me a lot of money. I bought some good flea shampoo at the vets (flea shampoo? sounds like we'll have clean fleas, huh?).
And snakes? I'm talking about the human kind. Even though I've been in this business for many years, I'm still a bit naive. I think everyone operates above board and in a trustworthy manner. Guess I'm wrong.
