Many of us have family pets, dogs, cats, fish, birds, reptiles, etc. We love these pets and our children especially love the animals. However there is a financial commitment involved with these furry friends as well as a time commitment. The financial commitment is obvious. Vet bills; shots, check-ups, cleaning, food, leashes, collars etc. Then there is the occasional my dog jumped from too high broke his foot, medical bills. The time commitment is also there, dogs, need to be walked and played with and while cats are much easier, they still need to be brushed played with and some really love to snuggle even if it is intrusive. All these things are easy enough to deal with, but what about these summer time pests, that our animals drag in. FLEAS. They are annoying, invasive, pestering and can cause a dent in your wallet and well as you time as you need to take sometimes extreme measures to make sure you get rid of them or keep them away. All the standard precautionary measures have been done, the once a month spot on they back of there neck, (frontline, or advantage), flea baths, special medication, regular grooming. The house has even been professional flea bombed, and yet these little pest keep on showing up on the strictly indoor cat. Any thoughts out there???
