I put flea drops on my pet and it still
has fleas. Are the drops not working?
The drops acquired from your veterinarian are working just
fine if applied correctly. They do not prevent fleas from
jumping on your pet and do not kill the fleas instantly. As the fleas
jump on your pet from the environment, they will die after a minimum time on
the dog/cat. The fleas that you see on the pet are just the tip of the
iceberg of what's in the environment. Also, dogs and cats going
outside will pick up fleas that should be killed by the drops. If the
house environment is infected with fleas, it will take a minimum of 3
months of regular preventative use to get rid of that population.
