|Frontline Plus is not working for me at all. After 3 treatments, we are overrun with fleas on the dogs and in the house. I have washed all the bedding and our sheets, which includes couch coverings, in hot water multiple times, vacuumed with change of bags, etc. I am going to use a bug bomb and spray the base boards with a synthetic pyrethin spray from the vet. I will remove the dogs, the cat, and the people during this.
I am loathe to spray the yard unless there is a natural (pyrethrin, perhaps?) spray to use as we have always been natural/organic outside. AFAIK, the dogs are picking up the fleas from the park used by other dogs, although the yard might well be infested now.
Dog, that is a long intro to my flea problems!
My vet carries Vectra but will write me a prescription for either Comfortis or Trifexis. One dog, Rolo, can't take Trifexis because he is on the long-term (shelter-endorsed) form of heartworm treatment.
Any idea which I might have more success with? And any ideas on a natural yard spray?
Thanks so much in advance!
