See why the right flea and tick medication is so important

Hey Hillary! Its a pleasure! My recommendation is that you get your cat bathed, immediately apply Advantage (since Frontline isnt working, even though its a great product) and follow up with daily combing. If you find any fleas on her, make sure you kill them and maybe use my flea trap in your home to check if there are any lurking in the carpets. Let me know how that goes!
Im desperate! We are all itching like crazy. The cats got frontline a few days ago but the fleas must be hatching so fast they are still infested. I had the carpet cleaned but didn’t know about the borax. I’ll get that tomorrow. Thanks so much!
Advantage is indicated for the prevention and treatment of fleas.
