Q. can I use flea shampoo on my 5lb dog. Used Sentry fiproguard 10 days ago she is still covered in fleas and biting her skin non stop

Answered By

A. Sentry is not a brand recommended by veterinarians because it is sold over the counter. I would try a better quality product like frontline, advantix, or vectra that are guaranteed to be effective. Also, you must treat your home for fleas to completely get rid of the problem.
