Question from Angela L Schreiber


Tux Cat, age 2

We curently have three cats in our home. One of which got out this summer and dragged home fleas. For the past 4 months we have treated the cats with Frontline, given them Capstar pills and flea bombed the house twice... We still have an awful infestation. We vacume , wash sheets and comb the cats. The frontline is just NOT working. The capstar works but the cats still get reinfested. Could the fleas be immune to the frontline? should we try a different brand? We also tried using natural products from the pet store to bath and spray the cats with.. NO LUCK! HELP PLEASE!!!!

Our Vet Says:

In case of an infestation it is very important to treat all the pets in your house at the same time and treat your house and your yard onn the same day that you treat your pets. The life cycle for fleas is between one month and six months depending on temperature and humidity.
You can still have fleas on your pets because the life cycle can be 6 months long. If you have problem after 4 months of treatment, it is better to change the product for a few months and after that you can again start using Frontline Plus. A good product is Advantage or Advantage II. Advantage II stops the life cycle of fleas just as Frontline Plus.  Both are good products with monthly application.
