I've been fighting fleas since Nov'08. We've had spurts of no/low flea population but they are few and far between. Last night I bathed all three dogs and it went something like this:
First, Eddie. Got two off of him as soon as I sprayed water on him. Applied flea shampoo #1 (chemical type) and got two more off of him. Second flea shampoo (a natural type), nothing. Regular shampoo, none. Conditioner, none. Toweling off, one. Total 5 fleas on Ed.
Next was Jake. Nothing until the natural shampoo and got two. Honestly though, he is mostly a solid color (grey) so perhaps I didn't see them.
Daisey the flea bag. As always, Daisey had the most. I quit counting at 7 but there were more, likely 9 or 10, and got them off at every stage of the bath.
Now, before you say "use a flea preventative" I have to tell you what all we have done. Frontline at the first of the month (it kills adult fleas), mid month we do sentinal (kills flea eggs), spray the yard, prene them everynight, bath 2 days before the Frontline. Got rid of carpet & fabric furniture.
Tonight I'm sitting here watching the olympics and looking through their fur. Got 2 off Jake's feet, 3 off Eddie, and 5 off Daisey.
I'm at my wits end!
