My dog has had fleas pretty bad the last year or so, and has always shown signs of flea allergies, and i have been giving her Advantage ( according to the label\'s directions) although I am about a month overdue for her next treatment, I havent noticed the fleas, (not even 0ne single flea on her body)but she is still showing symptoms.

My yellow lab has this flea allergy BAD. When we got her re rescued her from a man who kept her outside because she pooped inside the house when he left her for 14hrs before coming home!! Anyway, when we got her she had almost NO HAIR. Very scaly red, irritated inflammed skin. Horrible. I felt so bad for her. She was ugly. It was imbarrasing, but I knew I had to help her. So we took her to the vet and instead of just looking at her and examaning her they decided to give her all kinds of tests. Mange, which was ok, and some others, pressuring me for each one. I am sure they knew what was wrong. Finally $400 and a flea bath later, she was deemed to have a flea allergy. Go figure. They gave me antibiotic to stop the itching which was $15 and chlorpheniramine for $12, which is a antihistamine you can buy for $2 at your local drug store. The medicine did help. We live in an apartment and she is starting all the symptoms again. Scratching, knawing, shaking of the head (looks like a slow seizure only in the head) rubbing against things, and hairs falling out BIG TIME. We are now going to go back get the antibiotic and have our carpets cleaned. See if this will help. Its been 8 months since we got her. She is the most amazing loving dog.
