Anyone know any place in Seattle area that will do a flea dip for cats? We tried Petsmart, but they need to have rabies shots, and they're indoor cats. *sigh* Help?? Please??

If you go to the vet or an on-line pet store they have 2 different flea remedies. One is a pill that you give to your cat that starts working in about an hour and last for 24, enough to get the fleas off. You also advantage your cat at the same time and the two will over lap each other. My cats are highly allergic to fleas and this is what I do when summer sets in. You can get both of these at Northgate Vet on 15th NE (They even will dip the cat if you want) or at Alderwood Companion Animal Hosp. in Lynnwood.

The other trick with Advatage and Northgate Vet will help with this is get the tubes for large dogs and a little needless syringe and measure out the dose yourself. If will save a lot of money.

If you have a lot of fleas in your furniture what I do is get your basic flea powder for the Store (Safeway has cheap stuff that works) and powder the underside of your couch cushions and between the mattresses. It stinks for about 2 hours but gets the fleas away from you until the treatment on the cats takes away the food source.

Do you know the name of the vet? And the cheap safeway stuff? ;) That would be a wonderful place to start!!! Thanks

The vet clinic it Northgate Veterinary Clinic 363-8421. Any of the doctors there will help out.

The cheap stuff at Safeway is just flea powder. Read over the labels and find the one you are most comfortable using. I get the best I can afford and try to keep it away from my skin.
