Unhappy Fleas!!

My dog has a rash so i brought him to the vet today only to find out he has allergies to flea bites. He's never had fleas, until now. He's also had these bump's (i forget what she called them) that should be surgically removed. She also said that he should have his nuts chopped off because the testosterone is a contributing factor to those bumps. Any of you pet owners think i should get that stuff done "considering" my dog will turn 14 this december? Guess i'm wondering if he can take the surgery since he is old. My dog is an akita and weighs around 70lbs and he still gets around pretty good for a 98 year old :r1budha My vet recommended Frontline for flea treatment, what works good for you guys?

frontline works really good, and at 14 i dont think the removal of testicles is going to help much.

iirc most dogs aren't generating much testosterone at that age anyways.

Thanks guys, gonna pick up some frontline flea kill tomorrow. The vet said it would cost upwards of around $1500 for the surgeries and stuff. I guess i'll have everything done cept the nut removal.
Where would i be if i didn't get advice from you guys?
