Re: Fleas on dogs

When you bathe the dog, stick a small amount of fairy liquid in the water. It can't be too much - it might irritate the skin or take away too many natural oils, but you just need enough to reduce the surface tension of the water. It drowns the little gits...

Same experience with frontline, dogs and cats!

I've heard a lot of bad things about Bob Martin to be honest. A friend of mine's cat lost fur and came out in a nasty rash after she used this and it wasn't the first time I'd heard of that happening. I guess it may be different for each individual though.

Took my friend's two cats to the vet after frontline didn't work this time around and they were treated with stronghold which seems to have done the t(r)ick
Would recommend stronghold for anybody else with this problem.

Re: Fleas on dogs

For the first time we've had a problem with Stronghold not working on our cats. Took them to the vets who gave them Advocate which seems to have cleared things up. They said a lot of people were having trouble with Frontline and they'd had a few Stronghold failures this year. The fleas are obviously getting stronger.

Smile Re: Fleas on dogs

Hi, For forty plus years I owned working terriers and always used Frontline pippettes , I now own a cross bred Sheltie whom I still use Frontline on; three months ago I had to take to the vets as she was constantly scratching and biting herself, to my surprise the vet said that she had fleas and that the flea population was getting resistant to Frontline. He prescribed a pippette called Advocate, Result, (no more fleas).
