Slo And Flea Meds

Guest KathyL

Recommended Posts

We're assuming Butterfly has SLO, Symmetrical Lupoid Onychodystrophy (so search can find since can't search for 3 letter words). She's being treated for it. See my other post "lost toenail" for her treatment regimen. I've done some research and have found comments that say no flea meds or vaccines since SLO is an immune disorder. We live in south Georgia. Fleas are a HUGE problem here. I seem to be treating one cat monthly for tapeworms even though I don't ever see any fleas. So no flea meds is not really an option. The dogs (Butterfly and her two poodle nephews that now live with us) are the only three that go outside. Cats are indoor only.


My question is what do other SLO owners do about flea meds?
