    Move to higher elevation. No fleas here unless you let your pets run with the deer in the forests. Haven't had fleas for 12 years now, its wonderful!

    Comfortis!

    It is a pill used to get rid of fleas and it is awesome!!! When Frannie(our JackRussell) came home from an overnight stay with the in-laws she had some fleas. Our vet gave her Comfortis and it killed all of the fleas on her within an hour and kept them away for another two months. It is suppose to be given every month, but we give her a pill every two to three months and she has been just fine. It cost around $20 a pill for her weight (she's a chunky monkey - 22lbs). But, it is cheaper than Advantage and is more effective. In the past Advantage (and the like) have only given her relief for a couple of weeks.

    Default Fleas

    today I just discovered fleas in my house , cat has them too. I thank you all for the info you placed on here! gotta try the salt on the carpet, lemon on the cat!not sure I want to wash him!

    But will let you know what happens. Oh yes about the vaccumn? I heard moth balls is a good thing, or cedar chips for the bugs or whatever,

    anyone hear of spearment rubbing on the pets? I did a long time ago, but this was for outside pets. anyone got anything on that?

    I was just reading last night that a mixture of vinegar/water sprayed onto your pets will help...In addition it said to vacuum every room every day...I'm gonna spray my cats today!

    Thanks for bumping this thread, I am moving to a location that has fleas and I've never had to deal with that before with my dogs. Time to read up on what the latest scoop is for dealing with them.

    I heard that you can powder your pets with diatomacious earth. And, when they clean it off themselves, that it helps to clean out parasites in their digestive track.

    I may have to look a little closer to this one...Thanks for the idea.

    My three boys are on Sentinel...They've been on it since they were old enough to be...no problems with it, but it's pretty expensive for large dogs and has to be given every month...times 3. :/
    This product is good for fleas and intestinal parasites...so far it works well, but I do wonder about the long term affects.

    someone mentioned advantix. I think that stuff has high risk of seizures for dogs and cats. Too bad because I heard it really works.

    Our dogs have been on Frontline Plus for years with no problems and no fleas. THEN it stopped working. We have been doing any and everything possible to get rid of the fleas for the last two months to no avail.

    The vet recommended Comfortis. I gave it to my dogs with dinner last night and the fleas started dropping like flies within 30 minutes.

    Today will vacuum, sweep, mop, and wash all bedding (again). The yard was treated two days ago (again). I am hoping this is the end of this ordeal! It has been sheer madness.

    I used a battery operated flea comb on my cat. When the teeth of the comb come into contact with a flea they zap it with a small electric shock - enough to kill the flea but not harm the cat. It seemed to do the trick as the fleas eventually disappeared.
