My over 5 month old, over 30 pound, Husky puppy has fleas. We treated with a prescription topical (probably missed the skin) a week ago and the fleas got a little better and now much much worse. The vet has said we cannot treat again till next month. I have been bathing her with dove soap but it doesn’t seem to be working. She is miserable. Anybody have a solution?

However, as mentioned in the above article, it is important to know what the label says. You should make sure to talk with your veterinarian about this so they can check the labels for both medications.
