Frontline doesn't work?

I let my puppy play with the Golden Retriever next door the other day... Yesterday my neighbors were bathing and grooming their dog, i went over and saw a massive ammount of fleas on their dog..
I immediately went home and checked my pupp. she had about 15 fleas on her... I was soo that they hadnt found them sooner and allowed her outside to play with other dogs.

I went to the pet shop and bought her flea spray, and a comb.
I also had previously ordered Frontline + but it hasnt got here yet

should i return it and get something else or will it work? I never heard anything bad about Frontline. but another post had people saying it didnt work?

Any help would be appreciated. I want to get it on here as soon as it gets here and will switch to Revolution or Comfortis when i get to the vet but until then will Frontline do the job?

Chris
PS puppy is 16wks.

Re: Frontline doesn't work?

Frontline hasn't been great for my dog. I am switching for her dose next week to Revolution.

That said, I think it depends greatly on the dog. Some people love it. If you already paid for it, give it a shot. You can always switch the following month.

Frontline and Advantage did not work for my crew... Comfortis has worked and can be used once pups reach 16 weeks.

Frontline used to work for Heidi, but doesn't seem to anymore. Is Comfortis pretty safe? I got a flea collar for Heidi, but it smells awful, so I really don't want to subject her to it!

Re: Frontline doesn't work?

I have my two on Advantix; helps with fleas, ticks & mosquitos. I haven't had a flea or tick yet this year. (knock on wood!) The mosquitos still swarm them though...

Actually, last time I was at my vets there was a lady in looking for Frontline & the Vet Tech told her they did not carry it anymore b/c people were complaining it did not work. So they started using Advantage and did not seem to have as many complaints. I've never used it; Kane was on Advantix all last year & Kaiya started it last month.
