What is the best way to prevent fleas? Growing up we had indoor cats and just used flea collars--never had a problem. Now I'm "adopting" an indoor/outdoor cat who doesn't like to wear a flea collar. I don't want fleas! :laugh:

Recommendations?

In the past, our vet gave us Frontline and Advantage for our pets.

I've heard of those, but I don't even know what they are. Do they come in pill form? How does it work?

Ours was a topical liquid placed near the back of the head. Lasted about a month.

Our vet gives us liquid stuff that you run along their backs~ I think it's the same as what Sara's talking about, but I don't remember the name. Supposedly the stuff you get at the vet's is better for the animals, but, there are over-the-counter kinds available at the pet store.

Our vet also says that flea collars aren't good for them, as they can irritate the cat's skin and make them lose their fur.

HTH!

Does anyone have any home made recipes for fleas? I have a couple of dogs in the house & they are getting fleas. I have been using flea powder & so far it has been working.

I use something for our dog called Revolution. It is like Frontline or Advantage, a topical once a month treatment that also protects against heart worms and ear mites. Works like a charm. I have never seen a flea on our dog. Easy to apply, but it does cost about $13 a month. It is worth the cost to me, since our dog likes to sleep in our bed. She is small and spoiled!
