Q. I have a 2 year old male Rottweiler and he has fleas bad. We have tried a lot of different products like shampoos, drops, even frontline. What know?

Answered By

A. Not sure if you've tried a flea dip? If not I recommend you contact your vet or groomer and have your dog flea dipped. I personally haven't had much success with the over the counter flea treatments. I would recommend having your vet prescribe something and I would also treat your home with a pet safe flea control spray.
