HI all - First time going to Myrtle Beach in January for three months. Can someone tell me if at that time of the year we should be concerned about fleas. We are coming from Canada where we treat our dogs through the months of June to November for heartworm as well as fleas, but after that we don't have to worry about the fleas...it's too darn cold here for them to live! Would love to hear from someone.

If I were you, I'd continue to treat my dogs while in MB, as I don't think they ever get a deep freeze like you and I are accustomed to in our home towns. I treat my dogs with K9 Advantix, which in addition to fleas, also guards against mosquitoes, biting flies and ticks.

49 days till we're in MB! :lol:

Yes, definitely treat for fleas before your arrival. My sister's cat got fleas over the winter this past year.

Thank you for your feedback - will check with our vet to see what he advises. Good info to know when you don't know.

Hi all - Well, we don't have to worry about bringing our dog south. We had her put down last Friday. So, no fleas, ticks, etc etc etc.

We made this very difficult decision because she was 10 years old, having health problems including ongoing meds since last winter for skin problems causing her to drink too much water and of course, peeing anywhere/everywhere. This would not work in a rented townhouse. She was starting to have abnormal liver tests. As well, travelling without her on day trips would cause us to worryabout her having accidents. We've spent over $1,500 in the last month or so and we anticipated ongoing expenses in the future...so the decision was a hard one but the best one overall. We feel more relaxed and ready to move on. No more dogs for the time being. She was a great dog and we miss her company very much.

Diane

Sorry, Diane. I know how that is. We had to put our one dog down a few days before our last MB trip. It is a difficult thing to do. Much sympathy.

Thanks everyone. I think it's really starting to hit us that we don't have a dog anymore. It wasn't too bad at first...but now we are noticing big differences when arriving home to an empty house. Oh well, we have wonderful memories of her. Diane
