Best flea treatment

I'm looking for which flea treatment would be best for our puppy. He's almost 16 weeks, and weighs 40 pounds.

What would be best? We had a sample from the vet I believe it was frontline for puppies? Anyway we did find a flea on him during that first month so we don't know if that would be good again.

Please help.

We use Advantix which does fleas and ticks. Frontline is fine too.

Ask your vet. I don't usually use any flea/tick protection due to the chemicals(and we haven't had fleas in forever) but Gunner recently had a reaction to flea bites and had to resort to it. We used Frontline and Capstar (which kills them immediately but don't know if it is safe for puppies. It is taken internally)

Hope you find something that works for your baby. I worry about chemical reactions.

Vectra 3D is what we use. It's manufactured and sold by weight. Available only through a vetrinarian.

I use Frontline Plus. If you're in a HW area, you might want to look into Revolution. Both are considered safe for puppies.
