Does anyone have a secret remedy for fleas? I got the cats flea collars that worked great in the past and so far they're not doing a damn thing. I got capstar pills and fleas were dropping but it apparently didn't get them all. I also sprayed all of the carpets with stuff that's supposed to kill fleas, larvae, and eggs for up to 7 months. Nothing seems to be effective. I feel so bad for my kitties.
Oh I forgot to mention what the Vet told me - that some of these buggers get resistant to the latest topical - which could be why that Frontline is failing for you.
So far we've had that problem with Ticks adapting to topicals - I'm not sure about fleas - but I'm betting they do as well.
Too adaptable by far.
diatomaceous earth, use it as a rub on the cats. It is a son of a bitch to get out of carpets, but that is not a bad thing. It works by cutting and slicing the exoskeleton of the little buggars. A 25 pound bag costs as much as a one pound bag, so shop at the feed store and not the pet store. When i have had bad outbreaks , I spread it all over the house, wait 2-3 days, do my poison, then vacuum. 10 day later , do it again. that gets all the ones you missed before they are mature enough to mate.
Cheristan (Not 'Christian for cats' ) topical. Worked on mine when we brought fleas in from outside.
(On our shoes!).
It's once a month and it worked fast.
It's for prevention and treatment.
You need your Vet to call it in to 1-800-pet-meds or wherever you buy pet prescriptions I think? Check Chewy first.
