Update on operation flea pit......I think they've gone now. Checked him over today and no sign of any fleas. I hope that's the end of them.

They probably ran off to join the circus cos they felt unwanted.

Seawater kills fleas, I take our dogs to the beach at least once a week and make sure they go in the water as a precaution.
This advice is only helpful I suppose if you live near the coast.
You can apparently bathe them at home in a salty bath to kill fleas, but the salt concentration must be similar to the sea or it wont work.
Sea water is also good for a number of skin conditions, animal and human.
It doesn't kill crabs though, they love it and there's loads of them in there, so watch yer toes n other bits....

I can supply seawater for £10 per litre + delivery if needed
Long way from the sea, Wolverhampton!

The fleas came back this morning, well, one flea, so I went to pet shop. They've given me frontline plus as it breaks the egg laying cycle and kills them all. They said it's coming from all the foxes hedgehogs etc which come into my back garden. I have to use the frontline plus every four weeks from now on because the normal frontline spot on its strong enough. So yet another week of continuous washing, cleaning and vacuuming........woo ho

Frontline Plus is the stuff I used. Did you get the spray on or the single application shots you put on the back of the neck?

What I did was buy the biggest packs for extra large dogs and then I would use a syringe to put the liquid from the pipette pack into a small bottle. Then when it was time to dose the dog I would syringe out the required amount and apply. Small dog is only .7 ml so you get 5 or 6 doses per extra large pipette. Saves you a fortune. Works out you save about 70%.

;) I got a good deal BA, three months supply for £23. I applied yesterday morning and he hasn't scratched once since. I haven't checked for fleas yet but I'll brush him later and report back!
Hope they've gone now, this last week has been an absolute nightmare! The pet shop guy said if I use the frontline plus every four weeks it will stop it happening again. Hope so......
