Yep. It is.
It may be worth your landlord getting some household flea spray like Staykil Plus (Other brands are available) and spraying areas/soft furnishings and so on where the dog sleeps etc. The lady who trims Milo also recommended Advantage spot on as more effective than Frontline because of increasing resistance to the latter.
||Ok cheers. Will pass it on.|
I think both frontline and advantage are made of fiprinil. This is what the fleas are immune to.
We use Advocate, you have to get it from the vet though. It's the only thing that worked.
That and indorex in the house.
Advocate for the dog and Indorex for floor, furnishings.
Also consider mange.
advocate seems to work on my hounds
it might be an allergy.mange,something else or over licking an old flea bite
if it is the latter nasty tasting healing ointments are available but magic splosh will work for a variety of skin problems
I think all good flea treatments are prescription only but it sounds like the dog should be taken to the vet anyway as the problem may not be fleas at all.
They will also be able to advise what treatments are best for your locality as some do ticks, lungworm etc but not all.
||seconded on a vet visit ,advocate is script only and mange splosh if required ditto|
