I give my dog Frontline Top Spot every month, and he ended up with fleas!?!?!?
I gave him an application about 23 days ago. I noticed fleas on him and I about 2 days ago, and they're getting worse by the day. Has anyone else had this experience? That stuff is expensive, and supposedly "the best", so I don't know why he suddenly has fleas? It worked fine all summer.
