Re "fleas in clusters and embedded near eyes of dog."  Your dog 
probably has an infestation of the so-called sticktight flea, 
Echnidnophaga gallinacea.  These fleas often parasitize chickens and 
other birds and occasionally infest dogs.  Years ago one of our 
faculty member's dog became infested with sticktight fleas and he had 
a terrible time ridding the dog of the infestation.  See your 
veterinarian and attack the fleas aggressively before they become 
established on your premises.
