Question by Claire: Is there anything I can use to get rid of flead after using Petarmor 2 weeks ago?
I bought Petarmor plus 22 pounds and under for my dog 2 weeks ago because it is supposed to have the same active ingredients has Frontline. However, my dog is infested with fleas only two weeks after applying to treatment. I want to know if there is anything I can do for her until I can buy Advantix or Frontline in two weeks for her next monthly flea preventative.

you have them in your house. not only does the dog need to be treated, but you need to fog your house.

Another Friday pet food recall, this one for cat treats.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 27, 2012 – Arthur Dogswell LLC, Los Angeles, CA 90025, is voluntarily recalling 1051 cartons packed as either 10 or 50 packages per case of Catswell Brand VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins because it has the potential to contain propylene glycol. High levels of propylene glycol in the treats could result in serious injury to cats. The adverse health impacts could be reducing red blood cell survival time (anemia) and making the cells more susceptible to oxidative damage. No illnesses have been reported to date.
The VitaKitty treats were distributed nationwide via retail stores and mail order from April 13th through June 14th, 2012. This product is packaged in a re-sealable 2 ounce orange plastic bag with a clear window. The VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins lot codes affected are as follows: SEW12CH032701/03c and SEW12CH032702/03c with a best before date of 09/10/13 and 09/11/13, respectively (UPC code 8 84244 00057 2). Lot codes can be found on the bottom right backside of the package.
“We are taking this voluntary action because it is in the best interests of our customers and their feline companions,” says Marco Giannini, CEO and Founder. “We will be working with the FDA in our continued commitment to ensure that we meet FDA guidelines.”
The recall resulted from a routine surveillance sample collected by the Company and the Food and Drug Administration. Arthur Dogswell has ceased distribution of the affected product.
Consumers who have purchased VitaKitty Chicken Breast with Flaxseed and Vitamins from the affected lot codes are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. If the affected product was purchased online, consumers should contact the internet retailer to understand their specific return and refund process. Consumers with questions may contact Arthur Dogswell at 1-888-559-8833 from 8AM to 5PM PST, Monday through Friday, or leave a message at any time.
You’ll find the recall on the FDA website here: Arthur Dogswell LLC Voluntarily Recalls Catswell Brand Vitakitty Chicken Breast With Flaxseed And Vitamins Because Of Possible Health Risk and on the Catswell website.
Hey Dogswell, thanks for putting the recall on your website, but why did you wait until Friday to announce it? I’m sure I’m not alone in wanting to know why you didn’t announce it during the week when more pet owners would see it. I know somebody from Dogswell is reading this, so please enlighten us.

Kate Jackson of Adopt-A-Golden said, “She had done so much research into the golden retriever breed. It was her idea to start raising money to take care of his operation, so when it came time for Adopt A Golden to look for someone to help with the recovery, we couldn’t think of a better person.”
Question by Robert R: How to separate a tick from a cat?
My beloved pet tick recently came home with an unwanted cat attatched. I have heard that you can use tweezers to remove the cat, but I seek clarification- is there any danger the tick may become infected by some kind of cat-borne disease? Also, how can I safely dispose of the cat?
Answer by Eric K
A lighter to the butt of the tick..the heat will make it retract from your little buddy…try not to get his hair…
