Used flea collar for a couple weeks and no improvement and even the flea infestation seems worse. Flea collars have been removed. I'm going back to drops and am wondering if anyone knows if there is a wait time between collar removal and drops? It's been a few days and the dogs have been bathed also.

I don't know. If it was me, I would call my vet and ask......better than taking a chance.

Ok in case anyone else has the question at any time in the future.
Vet 1 said the main ingredient should not interact with the ingredient in the flea collar.
Vet 2 mainly just said that as long as I wait 2 days after the bathe I gave after removal of the collar, it should be fine. Reason being the oils on the digs skin will be redistributed by then so the flea drops will work as intended.

I have researched it and would prefer less toxic flea products but I am still undecided because I did read the de can cause issues with the animals tender membranes such as their eyes. I have small dogs and worry about that.

Thanks for sharing!

I would go with vet #2.

I wonder about that too. I'm my case I want to remove flea collar from my pet, but I won't be able to bath him because I just did before putting flea collar on a week ago! For how long I should wait before I can use flea drops??
