Fleas problems in Italy
We are bringing our Maltese with us when we move to Rome this fall. We are busy with his health paperwork and preparing him to fly etc. But our vet here raised a question. Ciccio (the Maltese) has an immune system illness, so many vaccinations he can’t have. So he has been a “bubble boy” as far as contact with other animals, because of this. But we try to let interact with other dogs as much as we can. Our vet asked us about fleas in Italy. Ciccio can not have flea prevention meds because of his illness. Will we need to keep him away from Roman dogs? I hope not.
By the way, little Ciccio is bilingual. He knows all his commands in Italian and English.
