    Default One more question....this time about dog flea and tick product



    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:windowtext;">We are starting
    to see fleas on the dogs. We don’t have carpet so they don’t many
    places to hide. Our vet recommended Advantage or Advantix if the problem is
    with ticks also, so far we have not seen any. I have spent over $400 on the
    dogs getting them up to date on shots, and on Interceptor so I am flat broke on
    my doggy budget. I have to come up with another $80 to get the last remaining
    lab puppies fixed Friday.

    <font size="3" color="black" face="Verdana">12.0pt;font-family:Verdana;color:windowtext;">What does
    everyone else recommend? I know there are some very strong opinions,
    especially about the ones sold at Wal-mart so I wanted to ask before I risked
    my dog’s health to save money.

    Default One more question....this time about dog flea and tick product

    We don't have carpet either and we just had to bomb our house, parts

    of it twice. I have switched from the two big vet sold products,

    because I think that the fleas are developing immunities to them,

    they don't work as well as they used to, at least not for me. I went

    to a local pet supply store and bought a spray there- sorry, I don't

    have the name. It was about 8 bucks and works on dogs and cats. My

    point is to try something that isn't being used by everyone else-

    kind of a surprise attack.

    I've heard, and have not tried, that Dawn dish soap is one type of

    soap that can kill fleas.



    You can also use a regular pet shampoo with orange essential oil

    added to it (which can be found at most health food shops), or a

    shampoo that has naturally added limonene (citrus extract). It's

    gentle for sensitive skins, and is supposed to work good on getting

    rid of fleas on both cats and dogs. I don't have either, so I can't

    tell you if it really works or not.



    Without carpet, you may get some fleas in plush furniture. For that,

    sprinkle with regular table salt, let it sit, and vaccuum the next

    day.



    You can also put light colored low edged bowls filled with soapy

    water in front of a night light at night. The fleas will be

    attracted to the light and jump at it, and end up floating in the

    soapy water. Just clean out the bowl every night.

    Default One more question....this time about dog flea and tick product

    I work in a Vet's office- we sell many products, but by far the ones we sell the most of are Frontline Plus and Revolution. Frontline plus has a good reputation for working on ticks in our area where Revolution will offer heartworm protection as well as flea control (less tick control in some animals than Frontline Plus seems to have in our area). For immediate help, there is a product called Capstar that will kill most fleas on an animal in less than 4 hours- it only stays in the system for 24hrs, so there is no long term protection and it is a fraction of the cost of a montly dose of either Frontline Plus or Revolution. Both of these products for fleas work best when put on an animal 48hrs after OR 48hrs before a bath is given - the products move on the skin surface and seem to do best when there is a slight bit of oil on the skin. What we suggest for
    really bad fleas on an animal is a Capstar, followedby either Frontline Plus or Revolution. So far that combination has worked for us. We have seen at least one case this year of an animal having seizures from products bought over the counter for flea/tick control....it was a small dog...cats are especially sensitive to being over dosed on flea products. We do not sell Advantix, so I can't comment on how well it works in our area. We carry Advantage and many people seem pleased with it when there is no tick problem involved- for us, it is a bit cheaper (by several dollars a dose) than the other two products mentioned above. Most offices will sell single doses of flea products- you can get a one month doseof flea control for less than $20 even for a huge animal. We also have many clients that purchase the largest size of Frontline or Revolution and "dose" it to
    make it work for many smaller animals in the family (multiple cats or multiple small dogs)...this will require help to determine safe doseage amounts from your family Vet. HTH Lisa G.

    Well I wonder why Advantage isn't working for us? My 4 dogs have been on it for several months & the fleasare worse than before. We've treated the house & the yard with no results & I'm at my wit's end. The fleas are now jumping on me & keeping me up at night!

    I'm sorry, I haven't really been following this thread, but I wonder if

    anyone has mentioned black walnut branches. We put them under beds and

    couches in every room of our house and it really helped with the fleas

    with absolutely no problems with poisons or pesticides.



    Hope this helps

    Be VERY cautious about using OTC products (I won't allow my friends/family to use them). They have chemical with far more side effects (including death) than Advantage. Many OTC products use permethrin or their derivatives. The extra money is far worth it.
