Ruby skin care and flea meds

Post by Ruby » 18 Jun 2019, 22:19

Just an update and also this might help someone else. Ruby doo bee is still getting better. I have been using Vetericyn Plus Wound and Skin Care. Natural stuff It is a spray that you can use and helps with any wounds also it helps keep you dogs skin soft. My dog's skin was soooo very dry this has helped her tremendously. She had lost almost all her hair because a groomer shampooed her 3 times at one visit with medicated shampoo. I won't go into that now. This Vetericyn has helped her hair to start growing where it wasn't growing before. And has helped her very dry skin become soft.

As far as me using Advantage II on her for fleas. Didn't work for her ... it caused any little of hair that was growing to fall out and made her skin itchy. No fleas, no using Advantage any more for her and Used Vetericyn Plus for her skin and helping to get her hair to start growing again. Maybe this will help someone . If you decided to buy Vetericyn I bought it at Petco at first. I found that buying it at Tractor Supply is was the same price as Petco but..... at Petco for an 8 oz. bottle ...Tractor Supply has it for 16 oz. for the very same price.

Thank you soooo much for this

Ruby sure has issues, and the groomer went way over board, but............ they should try a sample like you do with any hair shampoo's etc on humans

Apple cider venegar is supposed to be good, as is Advantage, which is the one we used , but Ruby's body wont have it, maybe resort to the flea comb if necessary, and keep away from foxes

What is amazing, is, there are few actual dog fleas in UK they are mostly cat, and fox, and migrate to our cat or dog causing mayhem

let us know what happens

My name is Jean we live in Liverpool in Uk
