schultzlc Posted September 13, 2016 Share Posted September 13, 2016 The extra hot and sticky summer has led to allout flea heaven in my city. While I know I'm not dealing with an infestation in my home (yet), I have found six fleas on poor Nova over the past couple of weeks. She's gotten some baths and I comb her over with a flea comb, but don't come up with much most of the time. I have also treated my home with DE, Adams spray, and am regularly vacuuming and washing the dog bedding. Long story short, I don't think Frontline has been doing the trick around here. I would like to try Advantage II to see if it does a better job on the hounds. How long do I need to wait in between treatments? Does it need to be the entire 30 days? Also, can I use Advantage II and administer another Capstar tablet in the same day? I feel like every time we go outside, Nova picks up a flea or two. It's just that time of year around here, and I don't want to just quit walking the dogs to avoid them. Luna has somehow avoided this whole situation. Poor Nova has always attracted more bugs, and of course, the little hound does not react well to flea bites and welts up terribly. Half the time, I think they hop on her while we're out, have their meal, then hop off again before we get anywhere. I hate fleas, but know that, with regular upkeep, this too shall pass. Thanks in advance! Quote Laura, mom to Luna (Boc's Duchess) and Nova (Atascocita Venus).Forever in my heart, Phantom (Tequila Nights) and Zippy (Iruska Monte).
