We have 2 dogs and a cat. Our cat stays inside and the dogs spend 85% of the time inside also. We have hardwood floors - no carpets. No matter what we do the dogs bring fleas in and give them to the cat - we're constantly buying all the expesive meds for all 3 pets and it's a neverending cycle! Nothing works!! I'm extra sensitive to this because I just had a baby and I have now seen 3 fleas on her in the 12 weeks since she's been born. What more can I do?? We do flea baths, frontline (or whatever one of those expensive ones are on sale, don't have carpets, have leather couches and dont let the dogs in any bedrooms....help!!!Answer Question

Fleas - I can help with SAFE suggestions for you home and new baby: The spot MONTHLY flea products are Harsh and poison / and many times they don't even work. Fleas seem to get immune to some of the products on the market. 1. Please get some D.E. powder - this is all natural / you need the Food grade - Human grade D.E. - see here on how to order it and usages.
