|I had used Frontline/Frontline pus for years and it stopped working on my girls. I tried Advantage, seame thing. Within 10 days to 2 weeks, they had fleas again.
After losing my one golden retriever, Hunter, to ProHeart6, I am very, very, very reluctant to use new stuff, but I wa also worried about applying tht flea stuff twice a month. So i tried Comfortis and it wrked perfectly.
When my KayCee died in May 2008, I had 2 tablets left. Well, in this almost 4 years, I have only used them plus 4 more on Honey. If I see ONE flea, I give her a tablet, so that shows we just don't have fleas. And tht amazes me as we have 2 dogs on one side whose owner swears mothballs keep fleas away (tho her dogshave flea all the time), on the other side of us there are 4 chihuahuas, behind us the lady has up to a dozen dogs at a time as she fosters and has 3 of her own, and we live in a small town, lots of trees squirrels, possums, etc.
I had read that having dogs on top dogfood helps prevent fleas, but never believed it could. I am honestly begining to wonder now as Honey has been on Taste of the Wild for 4 years (KayCee had been on it about 3 months before cancer claimed her) and we so rarely see fleas.
But I will add this---dogs can have a reaction after the first injetion, pill, bag or food, etc, or afhve no problme for a long time and suddenly hve a reaction. My KayCee had no problme with puppy shots or first set of annuals, but almost lost her to the 2ed set at 2 1/2. I never fully trust any drug.
