Fleas, in yard, getting on dog
I've got a whippet that I keep frontlinted. However she has been picking up fleas in my yard. I only let her out to go potty- no running around or lounging about- because every time she comes in I pick 4-5 fleas off of her. This has become a daily thing.
I am worried the fleas will infest my house? Is that possible if she is frontlined? I found some dead ones in her bed so I think they are dying eventually- but the stray cats are bad this year- lots of rain, too.
This is the first time I have had fleas in the yard. Hubbie got some yard spray that has to be used every 2 weeks. I know it will kill off everything in the yard but I don't know what else to do. Flea infestation is not an option.
We have tried trapping that cats with on luck. Animal control is zero help. When I can afford it I will replace my 6-8 foot fence with the tallest I can find but it probably won't keep the cats out.
