Fleas develop an immunity to flea treatments. Frontline was the first one our dog became immune to. We moved to PetGuard, which worked for about three months. Then it stopped so that the next application in the new three month pack was more like water than flea treatment. He was covered with fleas and this stuff wasn't working.
So we got VetGuard. Same story.
You're not suppose to apply these right after you flea bath your pet. The oils in the pet's coat, be they dog or cat, are what help transmit the treatment across the animal.
Instead, you're suppose to wait two days after a flea bath to make the application. Or, barring that, wait two days to give a flea bath after you've treated your pet.
But that wasn't our problem here. Flea's develop an immunity to the recipe in all three of these brand treatments. That's why there are so many new labels coming out but with the same ingredients.
People think Frontline didn't work for my pet so I'll try VetGuard. But if Frontline failed, Vetguard nor PetGuard is going to work.
VetGuard is supposedly a Walmart company brand. I don't know what we're going to do save to high dollar to Advantage. I've got to check those ingredients to be sure I'm not buying into the same thing. Be aware, if you bought one of those three brands listed and they stopped working, don't get either of the other two. They won't work. My dog looks like this stuff was water and it produced fleas instead of killing them. He's white, so they stand out. Even when it's cheap, if it doesn't work it's worthless and too much money lost.
