Idiot of the day

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
At the shelter yesterday, I was answering phones, and we had a lady ring up.

She says "My dog get seizures from Advantage, and has fleas, so I sprayed him with hairspray."

Me: "Sorry, you did what??"

Her: "I sprayed him with hairspray, that way the fleas stick to the hairspray and they are easy to remove. I'm just wondering if the hairspray could be bad for him."

Me: "Well, I can't imagine it would be good for him, given that dogs lick themselves, and ingesting hairspray can't be good! Why don't you just try Frontline which has a different active ingredient to the Advantage. Dogs that don't tolerate Advantage often tolerate Frontline fine."

Her: "Oh, I never thought of that."

She "never thought of that" -- I wonder if she ever thought, period if she did, it probably hurt.

Well, I wouldn't say that she is the sharpest tool in the shed. In fact, I am not sure she would even know where the shed is.

I rather get the idea of 'the dog is allergic to anti-flea stuff, I can't use anti-flea stuff!' Some people don't realize they are different medicines.

However...

Hairspray???
