And a reader has a very serious question:

“Help! Despite regular use of Frontline Plus (topical flea & tick stuff) my coolest dog has fleas! After a week of scratching and much examining for a week I saw one actual flea about 3 weeks ago. I applied her regular does that day, a few days early, washed all her bedding etc. but it did not seem to do a thing. Yesterday my vet said I could apply another dose, and I’ve been washing bedding, vacuuming everywhere since then.

Has anyone else had flea trouble despite using Frontline? Any luck ridding the house permanently?”
