Has anyone ever heard of this? We have a dog indoors (which goes outside for walks, potty breaks, etc.) and two cats inside. Benelli, our corgi/lab mix gets Vextra each month, and the cats get Advantage. The problem is I noticed the dog itching pretty good tonight, so I combed her and found fleas. YUCK!!!
Logic taught me that if Benelli has fleas, the cats probably do too, so I combed them. They also have fleas!
Thankfully, our carpet is super short (cheap) and the rest of our house is tile. I have sent the fiance on a mission to bring home carpet and upholstery flea killer powder in the morning, so HOPEFULLY *fingers crossed* a good, thorough cleaning will take care of the house.
I've heard from a few people that they have used Dawn dish soap on their dogs to kill fleas. I was wondering if it is true? I have heard mixed reviews online, and logic tells me that it would be pretty rough on the hair it's self (as far as oil and such is concerned) but would it be worth it for a one time treatment? She seems pretty uncomfortable already, I don't want to make it worse...
Also, the Vextra that I have been using is from the vet, one of those once-a-month treatments, and the last one was actually put on her less than 3 weeks ago by the vet clinic when she was spayed, so obviously it isn't working like it should...
Any thoughts? Any suggestions? Any ideas?!?!
I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A FLEA INFESTED HOUSE!!!! ICK!!!!
