Q. Hi, my dog&cat have never had fleas, but now some how they do and we can get rid of them, we have tryed fleaoil and bathes, what else?

Answered By

A. If you want to get rid of them just choose a good vet product for fleas. Comfortis is a tablet that will kill the fleas in 15 min and will last for 1 month. I also recommend you to use the vacuum at home and a fogger spray to dis-insect the house. Wash all the bedding at 60 degrees at the wash-machine. Is you prefer spot on flea treatment instead of tablets my suggestion is Adocate for dogs and Stronghold for cats! Best of Luck
