Hello All,

I live in harvard heights in LA and needed some advise on flee and tick meds for my 2 min-pins. There seem to be a lot of options out there and some say certain brands work better in different areas. Well, it seems like Frontline plus is preferred by my vet but I am open to suggestions.

Here are a few questions I would like to know:
1- Do I need to take my dogs to the vet for a flee bath before starting a flee and tick treatment?
2- Which brands work best in LA?
3- What are the best foggers or other methods to treat the house and yard for flees, ticks, etc?
4- Where can I find bargains for such meds in LA or online?
5- Which itch lotions or sprays work best?
6- Are there any flee, tick, itch shampoo's anyone could recommend?
7- Most importantly, is any of these treatments dangerous for my pets?

Sorry for all the questions however I don't want to subject any harm to my min-pins and plus I really can't afford to buy this and that right now and test things out. Any and all advise will be greatly appreciated.

Have a blessed day!
David

For the house I used Fleabusters last year and have not seen a single flea in the house or on the pets. It's labor intensive and not cheap but lasts a long time and it seems to really work to stop the flea life-cycle. You can get it on Amazon.

Costco sells Frontline for a great price. You can order online or in the store---same price. I pay about $35 for 3 mos. supply. At Petco, that will cost you closer to $60.

It's not harmful to my dog and no pre-treatment (i.e. bath) is needed.

Thks guys...I will look into Costco and Fleabusters. Has anyone tried buying the larger Frontline Plus for heavier dogs and splitting it on 2 smaller dogs?
