Just that really! We've had a terrible time the last few months, with the bigger one being left with a threadbare back end atm. I've had a terrible time getting rid of them and I've been eaten alive too.
Same problem here... first timei n 14 years we have fleas. I have been bitten horribly . Treated eveyone...still live fleas on them! Tomorrow I am off to the vets for the strongest flea treatments and house treatments they can sell me
On top of prescription stuff (not frontline) we put shallow bowls of hot Fairy water down regularly and caught loads! They love a nice warm bath!! We also bathed the dogs every other day!! Bought a nit comb and enlisted the dc to see who could catch the most!! Been a proper family event this year!
Use advantage/advocate and use it regularly for at least 3 months to kill the flea cycle. You can also use acclaim/indorex for the house. Hoover lots and empty outside in the bin every time. Hoovering helps the acclaim/indorex spray work as the vibrations hatch the larvae in the carpet and then spray the adult flea.
Advantage and the sprays are much cheaper online than from the vets.
We found frontline didn't work and our carpets were hopping! And yet pets at home were really funny about selling us anything else. After I finally went back and pretty much demanded advocate, the fleas were gone within 3 days.
I've had a terrible time with fleas and BeansDog recently. I was using Bob Martin religiously but it had zero effect. With the benefit of hindsight I should have done some research before using the first flea treatment I found in Waitrose...
Now I'm using Frontline Plus and Indorex and it does seem to have done the trick - lots of people are saying Frontline doesn't work anymore so either I got very lucky or Frontline Plus is a different product to regular Frontline?
