I think Frontline Plus is not working properly...
So far, we have found 2 ticks, 2 fleas, and today we found 2 miscellaneous bugs on Roscoe. I think they might have been cat fleas, but they didn't jump. I caught one and stuck it in a ziploc bag in the freezer, so once it freezes I will examine it further.
Anyway, he is on Frontline Plus, and needless to say, if he is bringing home 6 unwanted pests I don't think the medication is doing what it is supposed to!!
I need some suggestions as to what we could try instead. It needs to have flea and tick prevention for sure. I'm so frustrated, and seriously grossed out. I have a thing about small bugs that totally disgusts me - give me a giant tarantula over a flea any day!
Also, I'd like to note that I have been getting mysterious bug bites for awhile now, but Tim doesn't get them. I thought maybe it was something in my lab at work, but since my job ended for the summer, I haven't been to the lab and I am still getting bit!
