|I am just now getting over a really bad spell of poison ivy that I got my loving puppy Mia. I went to the doctor and got some kind of shot (at the time I didt care what it was just wanted it to help) anyways, it did and she said something about it working for 6 months. Does this mean that I wont get it again this summer? This is our first summer at the house and are having a hard time getting rid of it and I am afraid to even mow my yard now! Please help if possible!
