Okay.. not that bad. I used the K9 Advantix less than two weeks ago. And Stryder has fleas again.. as now one of the cats does. Thoroughly pissed as its always worked for us, especially in tick season (ticks would crawl right off the dogs).
Here is my game plan.. and wanted to see what others thought:
All animals (2 dogs, 5 cats) will be given CAPSTAR to kill if any fleas on them. FLEAS DEAD ON ANIMALS. Then would spray the house with KNOCK OUT spray. FLEAS DEAD IN HOUSE.
Since the cats never go outside, and since ALL FLEAS ARE DEAD I was thinking of just putting a ZODIAC flea collar on them. The same with the dogs. Since "ALL FLEAS WOULD BE DEAD" we wouldnt have a problem, just using them as a possible preventative.
Would the dogs be safe going to competitions.. since they have to run naked (no collars) would taking the flea collars off at the trial, and putting them back on when we're done running kill any other possible fleas from coming back to the house?
I've never in my life had a problem with fleas.. money is tight so I'm just not to spend an arm and a leg but still want for the animals to be happy and healthy. So have no idea how to go about all this...
I had never had fleas at my place for well over 10 years until this past summer. Finally they are gone and will stay gone. But that did require 14 degree weather. I would just get extra Capstar, to give if you go to an event and find fleas on them. Just do it before you even leave to come home. But make sure you give it enough time, so that way you don't get fleas in your vechile too.

Great idea Windy. I have a question too... if i give a capstar on one day, when is the next time they can have one? Teddy, my yorkie had fleas on him the end of Aug, and i called the vet ( since he was on revolution) and they said not to worry, that the fleas would not reproduce. Well He didn't get September dose of revolution. My Mind was not even thinking of that, since i was dealing with all this house fire stuff. Anyhow, I got him his revolution on Tues. and a capstar, but i still see a few fleas. I have an extra capstar, when can i give it??
