BINGO75I have been using evance now for 3mths have tried everything else but wasn't working but since i have been using evance i have had no fleas it is really good stuff just my opinion though but wouldn't go back to using anything else i have chihuahuas and no reaction to it on any of them.

Try feeding garlic, flakes or powder mixed with food daily - cheaper than any flea treatment and my dog sleeps outside too.
never had fleas in house or on animals since.

yup, ive been using garlic for 6 years, aswell as other stuff but this last month my dogs have been itchy and ive been picking fleas off daily.

it says Active Constituent 100g/L Imidacloprid. I have used advance from the vets as well as frontline and yes i have breed dogs for years and they always get garlic they are even wash it garlic. For this little dog it has been the only thing that will work and i don,t want to use the pill from the vets.

advance/evance are the same thing - nasty toxic crap IMO.but unfortunately, sometimes necessary.As for the pills - no way I'd give any of them to my dogs!

. well this may sound really strange, but my farmer uncle has a good handmedown remedy for fleas in the house (he does have plenty of indoor pets) . he just puts macrocapra branches under the furniture, couches, beds etc (they are also out of site) and not a flea in the house to be found. They just hate the stuff.So if kitty or puppy bring any in from outside, they aren't around long. He said this really works altough he doesn't know why . he doesn't care,just fleas are not a problem in their house.

. maybe botanical gardens, or park . they are the trees that have those round nut things that look like those old fashioned buttons. a lot of farming properties have the trees around, maybe some firwood merchants can get some when out stocking their yards.

growing in the garden, Tansey, worm wood and lavender plants. the dogs will run through these to get the oils on their coats. works a treat.
