    Nothing works in my experience apart from chemicals. I wish it did.

    I agree. I have cats as well as a dog.
    Great repellant but if you've got them, chemicals to get shot.
    Spraying the house annually with RIP Fleas works well for us.
    Hardly use spot on's these days.
    Spraying once a year feels better than 3 monthly spot on's.

    I gave my dog Billy No Mates for few years and he never had a single flea and only a tick here or there. Also garlic supplements should do the trick and I gave this also for a while. But our holiday dog sitter recently moved into a very tick infested area, so I switched to Seresto collar just to be on the safe side.

    Hey there JMW, unfortunately, I will agree with the rest saying that there is no other way. I used Bayer products for fleas before and I am pretty sure it has the most positive reviews you will find around.
    Hope your little friend get rids of those fleas!

    I use biospotix spot on which is a natural one, my dog reacts to chemically ones so can't use them. Since using them she's never had fleas :)
