Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Fleas that just keep on coming   Fleas that just keep on coming EmptyTue Sep 10, 2013 12:55 pm

To start, i know there is a few threads on fleas but Im not having a lot of luck with them.

Here is the low down;
3 pets: 2 dogs 1 kitten: 3 year old boston terrier, 4 month old husky, 15wk old kitten

both dogs are on k9 advantix's, cat is on nothing
both got their treatment on the 25th of august

Fleas came in hot and heavy late last week. so far he is what we have done;
k9 advantix august 25th
Diatomaceous Earth, through out entire house. Let it sit for an hour then vacuumed it up
washed the dogs the second we vacuumed in a vinegar, dawn dish soap water mix. fleas were falling off left and right. and i mean a lot of them. had to wash rikku twice. put more Diatomaceous Earth around their cages and through out their room. after two baths basically in a row, rikku was still itching and we were still finding fleas.
also have been washing everything and vacuuming and empty the vacuum out the moment were done

any adivce?

We just had to deal with fleas after having overnight fosters...Call you vet and ask for a Capstar pill for each of the animals, it kills all of the ones on the animals in 30 minutes, I'd then ask your vet if they think it's safe to give them another dose of flea topical

Capstar/Comfortis are your best bet. Personally I would Comfortis all the animals (they now have it for cats- not sure of the age range though) and viciously vacuum daily.

Comfortis over capstar. Capstar is only good for a day. Make sure to vacuum under beds that is where most of Loki's hair goes. Also heard putting down salt will dry out any eggs.

If you have it over there - Panoramis works like a charm.
It's the only thing that kept the fleas off Achilles in summer - comfortis is made by the same people but this one was more recommended by the vet, can't remember why though sorry. My mums pets suffered with the fleas but Achilles was fine. I'd find 1 or 2 dead adults in his coat every once in a while but before he started taking it I had to give him a Capstar every couple days cause the fleas were relentless
