I have a dog that is allergic to fleas. I treated him with Advantage 2 weeks ago, but the fleas are back. I have also treated my house for fleas. He scratches so much that his skin is raw and he is losing his hair. I have been giving him childrens benedryl for the itching ( he has other allergies too), but I don't know what to do about the fleas. I also bath him weekly in a shampoo that I got from a veterinary office for the dry skin.
Is there any suggestions you can give me?
The bathing may be causing the advantage to be less effective. It is generally safe to use advanatge every 2 weeks but talk to your vet about this first. vetcare
