Q. My dog is infested with fleas an I tried everything. What else can I do??

Answered By

A. It can take several applications to clear up the problem. You need to ensure that you are using a flea product from your vet as these are more effective than over the counter ones. You will also need to treat your house. Your vet will be able to advise you of the best ones available in your country. In the UK indorex and RIP are the best ones.
