I have never used Spinsad:

It looks to be similar to Capstar which is kind of a whenever needed short-term treatment that we used on a lost dog we had in our care for a few days - he was awash in fleas. Didn't bother him in the least and it was extremely effective at ridding him of his fleas, which were driving him crazy.

I was just reading the post about heartworm and frontline. I wondered if this was a problem with Baby and could it made her reading so low yeaterday I gave her the heart worm pill on Sunday and Monday is when she went down too 60. I asked the vet before about giving it to her and she said it would be no problem and hasn't had any with any dog in their clinic. Now I need to give her the Frontline next month because we are back up to a cattle farm huge land behind our house and we have wooded area too. We get ticks and fleas real bad here and she needs it because of being in the back yard. Boy, another worry. If anyone has had any side effects from frontline with a diabetic dog please let me know. I will talk with the vet again about this and the heartworm if this could have done something to make it go so low yesterday. Thanks, Ida

Ida,

All those who have had issues with either heartworm or flea products have had the dog's bg's go very high. I've never seen anyone say their dog had a low from them--they were all unexpected highs.

Well I went and looked to see if Niki bg went up after I gave her the heartworm med 2 wks ago, I can't say it was very noticeable, if it was maybe 30 points, I have never had trouble with heartworm meds.

I've been using Frontline Plus for years, but when I apply it I part the hair from the scruff down to the top of tail and apply the drops all along there and some drops by the shoulder blades.

For mosquitos get rid of any standing water outside.

Take your left over coffee and pour it on any damp areas of your yard.

I have a recipe I make that I use in a handheld sprayer and spray the dogs yard with this every month, I will post it later as its in my garden shed. All non harmful ingredients you can buy at the grocery store. Its similar to the spray Kathy mentioned but ingredients are different.

There is a spray for the yard made by Ortho or other Co., you can spray this (attach hose to it ) but pet cannot go into yard for so many hours, I used this years ago when I had all 3 dogs. It is for all bugs, not made particularly for pet areas, for bugs in general. it states to keep pets/children out of the area for so many hours. It does not kill grass etc. I'm sure I breathed it in while I was spraying
