Hello everyone. I have a 3 year old male yellow lab that goes by the name Axl. He has been on Frontline Plus up until a few months ago when I noticed fleas on him. We had the house fumigated(twice) and washed him with flea shampoo. I took him to a vet and she suggested switching to Advantage. She also gave him a Capstar. He seemed ok for maybe a week. Now they are back. I've tried numerous methods. I switched to k9 Advantix (along with Capstar). We vacume frequently. I heard garlic works but I am reluctant to give it to him as it's considered a poison to dogs in large doses. We don't overwash our dog.
We live near the beach in Southern New Jersey, in the woods. It's ben a rainy, humid, hot season. I'm hoping the first frost will kill the fleas that reside outside. Our Vet said Frontline wasn't working very well in this area.
I feel bad for my dog. I don't know what to do. Should I wait it out? Will it get better once the weather gets colder? I've invested a lot of time and money to make sure my dog is healthy and bug free. Is there something else I should be doing? Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance.
Here's my Buddy!
