My dog has fleas!

September 24th, 2013 at 10:54 am

I took my dog to the groomers this morning. She looks very cute now, but the groomer told me that she had some fleas. I have never had a flea problem. I bought some stuff to put on her and the other dog, Molly. It was $18 a tube and I had to buy two tubes. So, it has been an expensivve day so far!

    We've had lots of flea problems too - no idea why. It seems to really be making the rounds with indoor cats (who generally never had fleas). & not just locally - my friend in Pennsylvania mentioned his cat had fleas, and had no idea why.

    I think the flea population might be increasing because many of the usual products are losing effectiveness.
    I would NOT use Frontline at all. We are seeing fleas on every pet that comes in who has been using that. Advantage is so-so.
    For your little dog I would recommend you use Revolution or Sentinel or Trifexis. All of these treat fleas, intestinal worms and heartworm. Check around a little - even check online - you should be able to buy these for less then $18/month.

    I was wondering about that LF - if the super fleas were evolving. Interesting.
