Q. How can I get rid of fleas on my dogs for good. I tried everything and nothing helps.

Answered By
FARIS JACLYN

A. The best option for you would be to treat your dog, house, and yard. You will need to treat all of those three things. Get your dog on Frontline and Hartgard that is the best topical treatment for dogs. You must use this product for at LEAST four months to get rid of the entire cycle of the flea. If you have an infestation I would recommend staying on it all year round. Next, visit your local pet store and find the best yard and home flea treatment. If you're trying everything I would try the best products so you're not wasting your time with the cheaper low quality products. Ask a pet store associate to help you find the best one. You must treat all three things in order to fully get rid of the fleas, so treat ALL your pets (including cats - use Revolution), your yard, and your house.
