• We have a 4 yr old cat who has fleas. We bought Frontline Plus for cats and gave her a dose on Thursday the 16th. I sprayed Adam's carpet flea spray on all of the carpets and living room furnature, washed all the bedding and rugs, and then we gave her a bath with flea shampoo on Saturday the 18th. But she still has fleas, I can see the flea droppings, she is still itching, and I have bites on my ankles. Is there something else we can try? I know it is too early for a second dose of the topical and I don't want to make her sick.

    Hi Alex,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The best flea treatment will depend on a few different factors including your pet’s overall health, the environment that she is exposed to, and where you live. Your vet knows your pet and the local area so they will be able to give you the best advice on the next steps needed to treat the flea infestation.
