I just wondered if anyone knows of any remedies for flea control that don't involve chemicals? As some of you may know, Quinny, my 17 month old border collie was very ill last year (so ill we thought we were going to lose him at one stage) and to cut a long story short he was finally diagnosed with myositis, which is an autoimmnue condition where the body attacks its own muscles. Extensive research by myself and his dam's and sire's breeders have shown nothing like this in his lines - in fact we haven't found any border collie at all who has suffered from this condition - and so the vet's best guess is that it was triggered by a massive allergic response to Frontline, because he started to become ill just after we had used Frontline on him for the first time. (Although the people at Frontline say that this is highly unlikely, and we have used it on all our dogs and cats for years with no problems) Quinny is now stable and off the steroids and enjoying life to the full as only a border collie can, but obviously I don't want to use Frontline on him ever again. I don't even want to use it on the other dogs now, in case he mouths where we have put the stuff and becomes ill that way. And because his immune system is compromised, I don't really want to use any sort of chemical on him. Any suggestions, anyone?
