Frontline NOT working

Hi Guys, anyone else having an issue with Frontline not working?? I mean for the price you pay you think that would work great and it has for me in the past but this summer it's bad. So i treated around the 1st of July, Do you think it's ok to try something else or is that not good for him?? I don't know if you have any suggestions let me know. Thanks!

I use K9 Advantix and have never seen a flea on Tasha in two years.

Frontline was like a pleasant shower for the fleas we fought in St. Louis. We were using both their topical solution and the spray for the carpet. Switched to Advantage and no more fleas. If your dog comes in contact with any cats, stay away from Advantix, as its formula is toxic to them.

Yeah that's what I have been doing, Fronline and just sprayed. I will try the Advantage. Good to know about Advantix and cats. Thanks!

Wow, I use Frontline, and I never treat before i see my first flea, because I hate to use unnecessary chemicals. I saw a flea on Thrall a couple weeks ago, I treated all 3 dogs, and i have had no probs. Maybe you got a bad batch?

Wow I think you got a bad batch. Last year, the office I worked at in NY was INFESTED! You could see them jumping on the carpet, and you could see them on clothes and everything. Our Office cat, KittyDotCom was covered in fleas. I washed KDC in flea shampoo, and I put frontline on, and we had no more problems, even with someone constantly bringing new fleas in from home.

ive been using it for about 5 months, and again, it only seems to work for about 2 weeks. ive just been giving him a bath with flea killing sampoo more often, but this isnt how i want to go about things. theres a cat in the house who he plays/licks all the time, so i guess i cant try the advantix.

ive never had a problem in the past with frontline on my past dogs though? its odd.

I've heard if you're late or skip a dosage your dog becomes immune.. I may be wrong, but i read it on the internet a couple of years ago... knock on wood, I don't use flea preventative on my inside dogs because i have never seen any. I use advantix on my outside dog... It works!

I have heard that treating one dog can kill all of the eggs and larvae in the area, so maybe you are lucky and your outside dog kills them all lol. Last year I only treated Thrall when I saw a flea on him, and I never treated Raisin, and she did not get fleas either. This year, she treks around the yard all the time with her best bud Lady, so I figured I should treat them all. I usually treat 2 times, they say that the one treatment can last up to 90 days, so I wait until I see a flea again, so usually it ends up being 2 doses per year. I live in a warmer climate now, so I may have to dose more than twice as the season is a bit longer, Long Island is much colder than Maryland/DC.

Get regular Advantage, not Advantix. That's what we did. I tentatively say that we've also used BioSpot with success and no adverse reaction from either cat or dogs. But there has been talk about it making dogs sick, so it might behoove you to look into it first.

My aunt used Biospot on her chi and he had a horrible reaction to it, lost all his fur and was eating himself raw. What will work on one dog may not work on another! I honestly can't give an eval on Biospot because I only know the one person who has used it.

i JUST got off the phone with my vet.i called this morning complaining about the fact of me spending 120$ on frontline in one months time and still having fleas.he called me back and told me that we(flint) have had a outbreak of fleas in this area due to the over population of strays,and that it isnt normal to have to retreat.he told me to steamclean our carpets,and that it might take 4 weeks to get rid of them that what is happening is the pupae are hatching and that is what i am seeing in the house and on the dogs.to try and get the ones i see,and that everytime i vacuume to empty the container into a garbage bag and dispose of it.
i also asked him if they could become immune to it by any chance,and he told me no.that in all of the yrs he has been selling this brand that they have never been told anything from the manufactuer concerning this.
