Fleas are an environmental problem. Many people think that by just applying a top-spot product the problem will be solved. This is NOT the case.
When sorting out a flea problem remember the following:
- Treat ALL animals in the house – dogs and cats included. If there’s a stray cat coming into your house then either keep it out or treat it as well.
- When you apply the flea treatment, many of the fleas will jump off into the environment. This is why I advise spraying the ENTIRE house with Ultrum, including under the beds, couches and the dog’s bedding.
- Don’t forget the outside areas where your dogs or cats spend their time.
- Make sure that the product you use has residual action, like a spot-on or Bravecto tablet, otherwise once the shampoo/powder stops working the fleas will just jump back onto the animal.
