Am a bit confused - do you use Frontline regularly to prevent fleas or do you just use it if the dog Has fleas?
I have been told differing ideas so thought I would ask the cockapoo friends their thoughts!

Thanks Sarah - the vets said to use it about every 8 weeks to prevent but my friend (who uses same vet) said only put on if they have them. The instruction leaflet wasn't very clear!

I have been wondering how to do that. What will you be using/doing? :)
I'm still at the pondering stage but may either go down the garlic route or try Billy no mates.

Probably Billy but that has to be started in the spring around April if I remember.

I don't like frontline. It doesn't seem to work - I put some on Nacho last week and didn't let him get wet for a few days (it says not to let the dog get wet within 48 hours otherwise it may not be effective) and I found 4 fleas on him yesterday! With his fur colouring its easier to notice them when i'm brushing him. Can anyone recommend another more effective treatment? I've looked into spray - does anyone do this for their lil cockapoos?
