Dr. Sears,

 

I have a bit of an unusual question and was wondering if you've ever come across a similiar situation. A friend had found fleas on their dogs and had them "dipped". They were told after a day that it would be safe for their child to be around the dogs yet I read differently on the internet. How safe would it be for my little one (who is a thumb sucker) to be around the dogs a few days after the treatment or is it best to avoid for a period of time? Is it possible for any of the dip residue to be on carpeting as well?

 

Thanks in advance for your time. I appreciate it.

I don't know what the studies on this show.  I agree that caution is warranted, but I don't know for how long

Dr. Sears,

 

Thanks so much for your response. Sorry for the late reply. Your post just appeared yesterday (I saw by the date though that it's been weeks!). I've been having trouble with the site for a period of time and was hoping the problems were fixed.

 

Thanks again! smile.gif
