Flea Allergy

I have a 3 year old rat terrier. He has a severe flea allergy. Is there anything over the counter I can treat him with? Put on open sores?

You need to use a preparation that will prevent the fleas saliva reaching his skin. Suggest frontline spray available form your vet. You also need to remove the fleas from his environment or alternatively move the dog top a flea free environment. It is impossible to clear flea eggs larvae and adults from anywhere instantly. Medication for the dog to control the itching either locally in the form of creams etc or systemically with tablets or injections will only hidre the problem not eliminate it.
