OMG I know what you mean Holly. It's been crazy this summer with fleas. Our poor kitty got them from his dirty momma going outside. We got the furniture spray, flea bath, drops, and the yard treatment and they're all gone now :woof: :woof:Fleas are a tough battle in CA. I am in Norcal. I don't use or recommend dipping any animal in a bath of poison. If your going to use poisons do so in a minimal amount. You need to treat your house and yard as well a give your dog a flea bath with flea and tick shampoo, make sure to remove all fleas and apply flea drops when the dog is dry. Once you have fleas they are really hard to fight off. A couple years ago I moved to a house that had flea issues and then brought home more fleas from a dog show and battled them for about 2 months. You have to keep up with the house and yard treatments to have any hope of being able to keep them off the dog.
