Getting rid of fleas is a very difficult thing to do. They reproduce so quickly. What I have done with my cats is I have had to use flea bombs in my house cuz they get into the rugs and the hardwood floors. So that is the first thing I did. Then I went to the vet and got flea stuff that i put on my cats neck. I also had to bathe them in flea shampoo which was a nightmare cuz cats hate water...lol. But after all that it worked. i had to bathe them a lot thought but that and everything else did the trick. Good luck to you.

My dog had flea one time and it took me weeks to get rid of them. I had to give shyla a bath once a week for weeks on end it was a disaster. It is not fun getting rid of those pesty things. Buy some flea bombs as well.

I used to be a vet tech, the best thing on the market for fleas is Frontline. You can get it from your vet, alot of times they will sell you just one dose, each dose last for a mth. I buy mine on Ebay though, much cheaper, cause I have 3 dogs and 2 cats.

I am so sorry to hear that you have fleas. I guess it does happen. Don't worry, your husband loves you know less.

what i say is this if you have a dog say 25-30 pounds you give him frontline designed for a much larger dog. space the dosages ofcourse. Cause i know how annoying that can be fleas crawling all on your head and hair...Ewwyy
