What do you do when no flea treatment for your dog works?


I am at loss with my dog. I tried everything....all kind of brand medication spot-on treatments, Revolution pill, spray on treatment, flea shampoo, etc....pretty much everything that's on the market....same result....nothing works and on top of it she reacts strongly to flea bites. Anybody with similar experience and advice? Any experience with treating your own yard?

    Keep us posted on the outcome. I find this relly interesting as to why the one has such issues when the other 2 don't. Hang in there. xo

    Oh, yes it is frustrating. I avoid vets by now in regards to this problem. I was almost yelled at by two....they did not believe me that I was getting hopeless and needed help with the situation, that I would not treat my dog etc....

    SAR2811....yes, I do see the fleas and I know about Dawn and use it now and then whenever I see more than 3 fleas....I go through their coats almost daily to keep track of the situation. I have recently treated the yard and sprayed the entire house..
