A third thing is a warning that Komondors (and other livestock guard dogs) are very susceptible to anti-flea preparations. Administer any flea sprays or dips with great caution, remembering that a great deal more stays on a Komondor’s coat than on the coat of a short- or smooth-haired dog. Overdosing or allergic reactions may cause convulsions, which can have serious consequences. If you have your dog on year-round heartworm preventatives, as many of us do, remember that this is being combined with whatever anti-flea poison you are administering. If you have sprayed your yard or fogged your house, this too will affect your dog. Combining several poisons can have unexpected consequences. Think and check with your veterinarian.
