Answered By

A. You need to have an examination by your vet to establish what the actual cause is. If it is fleas then you need to treat with a good quality flea product such as frontline plus, revolution or advocate. If it is a bad infestation it may take several months of treatment and possibly treatment of the house too. The over the counter treatment you can buy is not as effective as the ones from the vets.
