Do any flea collars work? Safe?
My dog is on the monthly oral Sentinel, but must be bringing fleas into the house. My 2 cats do not go outside at all, but the older cat (18 this May) is constantly scratching herself. The younger cat (3) doesn't seem to have a problem although he will scratch occasionally. The last time I took the older cat to the vet, he applied Advantage on her. I brought home a packet for the younger cat and applied that to him. I put table salt all over my carpets and furniture, left it overnight and then vacuumed it up (this worked well in the past). The problem seemed to be solved for a few months.
I read that Amethyst (the stone) in water would repel fleas in cats, so I did that about a month ago with stones I purchased on ebay.. and maybe it has helped the young cat?
Anyhow, I hate the Advantage. I had a hard time applying it to the younger cat and he ended up licking some of it off - which I know is not good. I'd rather use some sort of collar on the cats if there is one available that works well and is safe.
