Comfortis & Frontline together?
Davis has flea bite dermatitis. We switched to advantage multi at the beginning of the year because it also is a heart worm preventative medicine. I believe it wasn't working very well. Davis has been itchy and scratchy just a few months following the switch.
This past Monday I noticed he was unbearably irritated, just scratching like mad. Started checking him out and noticed many tiny, red bites. We also find fleas on him. Took him to the vet and she said he was allergic to the flea saliva. She gave me both Comfortis and Frontline to get the fleas under control. I gave him the Comfortis and we started finding dead fleas just hours after. The next day we couldn't find any live fleas at all.
Should I still give him the Frontline? Just seems like so much to give together.
Also, benedryl is not working for him. Maybe I need to give a larger dose. He is still so very sad and itchy! I hope these bites heal soon. Some have turned to hot spots.
