Flea Dirt on my dog - help!
January 5, 2014 4:38 PM Subscribe
I got an adullt dog from a shelter 3 weeks ago. I was told she has been treated for a flea problem she had upon intake to the shelter, and that she is currently suffering from an allergic reaction to the flea bites. I have needed to continue her antibiotics and fish oil for the allergy/itching, as well as medicated baths. Today I realized she's got flea dirt on her hind legs.

Could this be left over from her fleas several weeks ago? Or is is safe to assume that after several rounds of flea treatment by both me (and our new vet, using Advantage II) and the shelter before me, they're still around?
This is my first post here. Thanks in advance for any advice you may have!
