    Default Flea Collars

    Do they still make flea collars?

    My dogs are always in and out of water so they are useless here too.

    I just don't know what else to do, but when I went shopping not one store had them.

    Roxie always has fleas. She doesn't scratch, which is odd, but they're always there.

    I wanted one for the vacuum bag and one for her.

    All the regular things. Washing EVERYTHING -my bed, her bed, my parents bed, vacuuming the whole house, bathing, submersion, spraying, powders for the dog, powders for the house, leave on shampoos, leave on sprays, rinse off sprays, isolation, attempting to pick every little flea out by hand, flea brushes.

    My next option is shaving!! :P Kidding, I would never do that. I just think a collar will help, especially in the vacuum bag and for protection outside.

    What about the little tubey squeezy things like Advocate? Or flea contraceptive tablets....I think you're supposed to give them to the dog, not the fleas, but I could be wrong

    Flea contraceptive tablets?????

    There was supposed to be a flea control in the worming tablets she just had.

    Part of me wonders if I should even bother, she never scratches or anything. The only way I know she has them is by finding them.

    Monthly spot on treatments have always worked for me.
    I use Advantage and the fleas are gone within a day.

    I treat my whole house with just an indoor spray like mortein. Don't forget to get right in around skirting boards or cracks in floorboards. All it takes is for one to survive and you have a whole plague again.

    Collars are the least effective (next to shampoos) as they only kill fleas if they happen to go near the dogs neck... and fleas usually hang out around the back legs and tail.
    Spot on treatments go on the dog and then the dogs natural oils on the skin transfer the medication over the dogs whole body. Plus, because it stays on there, any fleas it picks up around the house, or any eggs that hatch also get killed.

    Are you sure they are fleas as well? If its not itching her maybe its another bug.
