There all over my Cocker Ginger, my dad is a vet and he can't even get them off! (that sounds bad doesnt it?) We are using the most expinsive medicine there is but they just wont get off of her! What do I do?!
it can take awhile to get rid of fleas, when you treat the dog are you treating the house too??if you can get your hands on it, use a product called zodiac. it works really really well and isn't that expensive, i swear by it
does your cocker have long hair?? if she does shave it all off. a #10 blade should do the trick. that way you can let your dogs skin breathe and the fleas can't hide
also i just noticed in nother post that you have alot of other animals. i hope your treating the other ones too!! if not all of your efforts are useless

Ohh, of course we take care of the other animals! After school every day we all go out with the animals we play, feed them, medicate them. Pw, yes your wondering, my father just got his dagree in vetrinarian about a month ago, but he still can't figure it out, he's getting some advise right now. Before e got Gingers hair cut for the summer, but the flees just now came about a month ago, LOL!!! that's funny my father just now told me that it will take 2 1/2 months for the fleas to go away! I'm a dumb blonde as you can tell!
Which medication are you using, out of curiosity? Some dogs don't do as well on certain meds, you might consider changing meds. Also, fleas are probably in your house as well, you have to treat the house, the yard and the dog to really eradicate them.
