I actually have 3 dogs and 2 cats, living in rural Kansas in a wooded area we have crazy fleas! We are a little tight in our budget right now and to treat all of them with the comfortis pill would be over $100 which currently between our 3 kids, 5 animals, mortgage, and having to cover a $9500 plumbing bill, we can't afford it. I have spent money on the flea shampoos (which work to kill the fleas on the dog but aren't preventative regardless of what the label says) and topicals like frontline which seem about as effective as putting a little sugar water in a dropper and applying between the shoulder blades. I am going insane trying to get rid of the fleas in an extremely cost effective manner and didn't know if anyone here would know of any home made flea remedies that would work. On another topic, Anubis is now 1.5 yrs old and I am wanting to breed him at some point but don't know A) someone who owns a similar breed in my area or B) what kind of breeds would be best given that he is a hybrid being mostly (over 60%) Boerboel with small percentages of Dogo argentino, Kangal, and Great Dane. Any thoughts or input are appreciated and anyone who knows of any compatible females in the Wichita ks area is greatly appreciated!
