|I was living in Florida for about 2 years, and ended up having to shave my pomeranian as a last resort to get rid of the HORRIBLE flea problem that i had. I tried everything! His vets couldn't figure it out! We finally just accepted that the area that we lived (apt. complex with lots of pets), just happened to be more flea ridden than most.
Walter was shaved three times during the duration of our time there. We moved back to MN, and the frontline, and pill (don't remember what it was called--anti inflamatory that instantly kills fleas & eggs) worked. No more fleas in the last year.
NOW. We are moving BACK to Florida, and this time with a new (human) baby that will be crawling very soon. We cannot use the chemicals that we once did to bomb the house, bedding, dog. SO. I feel EXTREMELY bad because I am going to have to shave him again, I'm afraid. That is the only thing that even helped with the flea prob in the past.
I have read enough to know that it is not wise to shave a pom, but what else??? I have to be proactive about this, or Walter's daddy might decide that Walter needs a new home, if he brings fleas in with the new baby.
