Trifexis - Ineffective on Fleas?

I have found a few fleas through the winter, and my dog itches like crazy. I recall when taking Comfortis, no fleas and no itching. Thinking of switching back to Interceptor and Comfortis. Before discussing with the vet, I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue? I know of another who had found Trifexis useless in the flea dept. For all I know, it could be the cause of the itching.

This year, we found Trifexis to be the only thing that got rid of fleas in the dog and Comfortis for the cats.

Didn't realize their was Comfortis for cats. I've been using Advantage.

I would be interested in Neem oil. Will do a search.

We use Trifexis and have never seen a flea on anyone. And in this part of the country, we have to use that stuff year around. Fleas don't take a break here in FL.

Never had a problem with anyone here. We used to use Sentinel... that worked great too, before it was recalled.
