Hey Trudy. We battle fleas year round here. Murray was on Frontline Plus, but was still getting fleas, so we switched to Advantix. It seems to be working some better, but we are still having problems at about week 3 after applying it every month. At that point I have given CapStar a couple of times. The vet has suggested we change his anti-parasite med from Interceptor to Sentinel, as it has an oral anti-flea component and keep him on the Advantix.
The other option she suggested was Comfortis. I asked her about ProMeris, but she said there seem to be a lot of side effects with it and she wasn't really recommending it at this point.
We think he keeps getting them from the outside cats. He loves to play with them and I'm sure they have some fleas as they roam the nearby fields.
Murray & his mama, Sally~
