My vet was telling me about an article she got that claims fleas are becoming resistant to the conventional remedies. I see more and more posts from people asking why they cant control fleas. Do you think this is the case?

    I also spoke to my vet about this just yesterday. I seems that they are becoming more resistant to some of the topical 1 a month flea treatments. She suggested that if I dont see a problem now to keep using what I am using but since fall is upon us than the flea problem becomes worse. I may have to change to another type of product.
    She said that they have seen a big resistance in dogs especially where it is very warm climate and the fleas do not get killed off in winter cold climates.
    So I guess there is some releif for those who do get very cold winters and then not for those who dont.

    Yes, I have had the same problem with my dog. It seems the past 2 years have really got-ton worse. My vet told me basically the same thing. I don’t know where you live, but we have had very mild winters compared to the past. I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. I asked my vet, he said it might. All I know is fleas are very resistant to vet medicines that have always worked in the past for my dog.

    I’ve heard this too. So far, so good here. Frontline has not failed us yet, and I’ll keep using it until it does. Hoping it’s not any time soon that we’ll need to switch up to something else.

    We live in South Florida, and they have been awful here. I have all my dogs on Frontline, and I am still finding fleas on them….according to our vet, some people here have had to start doubling up- Frontline first, then Advantix 2 weeks later, but he recommended spraying the yard first- with the topical treatments you are basically using the dog as an exterminator- the fleas have to be on the dog to be affected. Just another bad thing about our weather- we have had mosquitoes all year too.
