The vet issued Frontline for our pup (I know it's said to be crap, but because the vet issued it and it's always been fine for our cat (preventative - never needed to treat existing fleas) I thought I'd give it a go) Second time we had to use it after an outbreak, so I took the dog to be weighed to check she was still within the weight range, all fine. It cleared up the fleas and I treated the whole house too. Now, four weeks later, she's got bloody fleas again!! So, obviously, frontline isn't doing the job. I've got one last application here I'm going to apply for temporary relief for the poppet whilst I get my hands on something else.
What's recommended these days? Advocate? Advantage? Something else? (Topical would be preferred, but I can give tablets if necessary).
She's a 12 month old GSD cross if that makes a difference, around the 20kg mark.
I have always used Billy No Mates, it's a herbal supplement added to their food. Contains neem oil among other things, makes dog smell lovely but it's extremely off-putting to fleas and ticks. Never had any on our dogs.
