If you think you are having problems with this product, make sure you institute a comprehensive flea control program for your entire home and yard. That is, while this product will kill the fleas that are on your dog, it will not prevent new fleas from jumping on your dog.
If you think it's not working, more than likely you are seeing new fleas that have jumped on from either your carpeting or your yard. Try walking across your carpeting in white athletic socks. If you see fleas jumping on, use a carpet powder for fleas. If you have a yard which your dog uses, and you have stray animals like cats, squirrels, or opossums that wander through, apply a yard spray that kills fleas. Wash your dog's blankets and bedding in hot water and put them through the dryer for an extra long cycle.
Finally, as noted in the instructions, make sure you let the product thoroughly dry. It has to be absorbed into your dog's skin so it will enter the bloodstream and spread through the rest of his/her body. Before, my dog used to roll around on her back, trying to rub the product off on the carpeting. So now, I take her for a 30-45 minute walk right after I apply the product so it gets absorbed. Also, I cut her hair down close, especially around the shoulder blades where I apply the product, so it doesn't wick up into her fur.
Yes, all of this sounds pretty extreme, but when dealing with fleas, you really have to go all out to get rid of them. The product does work, but make sure you institute a flea control program for your whole house, and make sure the product gets totally absorbed by your dog's skin.

Do NOT Buy!!!
Unfortunately for my 2 dogs this product did NOT work. It's been a long month and I feel bad. Fleas have gotten so much worse and all I could do is give a couple of baths and comb them all the time.

This product has the same primary ingredient as Frontline. Less money. Works great. A couple of my dogs can not have other topicals because they have had reactions... but they can handle this one
