I note there was not previously a topic concerning fleas in particular. Is it just us or is there an apparent lack of efficacity of the anti flea treatments?
We have run the whole scheme of Vetinary recommended products like frontline, to the cheap and cheerful at the supermarket, but no matter how we treat our cats, the fleas keep coming within hours of the treatment. Our cats Dotte and Dashe get combed at least once a day, normally in the evening, but still end up scratching after a few hours.
We have fumigated the house, the carpets, the soft furnishings, the seams of the cushions, but still they come back. This year has been the worst. I suppose like the ticks, the moist atmosphere has been good for their breeding. I suppose it doesn't help that Dotte and Dashe have a boyfriend up at the farm we call "socks", a grey tabby with white legs who looks a bit untidy. He comes calling sometimes, but fortunately runs away when we approach. The farm dog patrols our garden too and she leaves little presents. She is always scratching.
One time the cats brought home piece-meal a family of loirs that were full of fleas, but that was last year and the plague was relatively shortlived.
What has been your regime and how succesful has it been, if at all?
