This flea stuff didn't work as well

I got some flea stuff from the vet like i always to every month. But they changes brands. They use to have the frontline (the good stuff). But this time it was called Premeris (i think that is right) anyways iw was around the 15th. And it has worked, but not as well. I still see a flea occassionally. And with frontline i didn't. And since they don't have it should i ask the to write me a prescription so i can order it online? Also do i need towait until the 15th of this month to put it on even though the other stuff didn't work as well?

  • don't wait call them up and ask for a written prescription. I love Drsfostersmith but even another vet clinic should be able to fill it. Just let them know you don't like the new stuff and want the old back.

  • Fleas and Ticks / Natural options :  You know sometimes the Monthly Flea and Tick treatments only work 80 or 90% - depends how bad the fleas are in your area.  The way people deal with this is Natural vitamin supplements and critter oil/ natural spray ...

    You can give NuVET wafers - just 1/2 or 1 per day - it will make the fleas and ticks hate your pet's blood and JUMP right off-  A Healthy pet's blood tastes awful to them.

    Also, google critter oil spray - this is very safe and nice - use it 2 x per week along with what your vet has given you.

    Some folks just do the NuVET and Critter oil and NO treatments from the vet  NuVET link - Holisitic flea and tick vitamin
