An open letter to my dog:

Those who do not like baths should avoid rolling in dead things.

I probably like fleas even less than you do.

The extra-special dog treats are not buried in the kitty litter.

We already went for a long walk today.

Tongues don't actually clean dishes better than sponges do.

There's this thing called daylight savings time...

The nail clipper is not possessed.

Is there any chance we could limit the puking to tiled floors?

These shoes are made for walking. Not chewing.

And the final thing I'd tell my dog if he understood me is that I love him anyway.

For what it's worth, I do understand that the veterinary-approved flea products are more expensive than the Walmart (Hartz, Sargents, Bio-spot etc.) ones, but a visit to the veterinarian is more expensive than that.

As a vet who's lost many hours of sleep and free time to sick cats in the last week after application of one of these OTC products, PLEASE consider using Frontline, Advantage, Revolution, or Vectra on your kitties. They do work. (I would know. I hate fleas and get covered by them from unprotected animals at work every day. I have never seen one on my pets. I use product year-round.) They are safe when used as labeled. And I make no money from the companies.

You can walk into the office to pick them up. You don't need an appointment. There are lots of deals and promotions now that there are so many competing on the market; just ask.

Please? I'd like fewer fleas and fewer sick kitties in the world.

In other news, I'm on call this weekend and hoping it's a quiet one. The phone's been ringing off the hook. I'm currently waiting for one guy to decide whether he's bringing in the cat who seems toxic after multiple flea dips and baths today. *facepalm*
