Ugh this is so nasty. We have fleas in the house, and my dogs seem to always have a flea on them. We bathe them regularly, vacuum, treat the house with chemicals even though I'm pregnant, I use advantage on my big dog and sentra on the little dog. Advantage on my cat as well. We've treated the yard, too! I don't let the animals on the couch or in my bed either.. Heck, they aren't even allowed in my bedroom anymore. This is embarrassing and disgusting.
Seriously, we've locked all the animals out of the house, sprayed the entire house, even under the couches, beds, tables, rugs... Let it sit for an hour or so and then vacuumed. For some reason, the little dog seems to be covered in flea dirt within days of having a bath, is it cause he is closer to the ground??
What do I do more that I'm not already doing? Maybe I could vacuum every day instead of when the floor needs it? Ugh I'm NOT a slob and we don't have any other bugs. My house doesn't smell and I keep a pretty clean home.
:( I need a new house and a pair of shavers for my dogs.

You say using a flea collar is like putting poison around their necks, but what do you think the other stuff is? Poison! I'm not saying I'm against it, just wanted to clear that up. :) If your dog is on a low quality diet, that is the first thing that I would change. Good food = stronger immune system and a strong immune system will be better at fighting off parasites. If you want to go natural, you can give your dogs a little bit of garlic everyday....The Daily Puppy & use Diatomaceous Earth (DE, make sure it is FOOD grade NOT pool grade)...Wolf Creek Ranch on them and in the house/yard.
