A flea infestation can be a VERY time consuming problem, not to mention the monetary aspect of treating a home, and one or more pets. I wanted to highlight one of the possible "lights at the end of the tunnel" for anyone dealing with this connundrum.
Obviously the best possible option is avoiding an infestation at all, by applying a flea and tick preventative monthly. (At this point you likely already know that.)
Assuming you are past that point, Frontline/Merial have a great plan B.
If you purchase and use three months of their product Frontline Plus on all pets in the household, and are not satisfied with the product (meaning the infestation is not gone, or your pets still have fleas) Merial will actually pay for a consultation and treatment with Terminex.
This is a huge benefit for those people already using Frontline, and a great incentive to switch if you like having a failsafe.
Now there are a few caveats.
1. It only applies to the most recent purchases, so you cannot do this if you were using their product, then swapped to another and are still having problems.
2. Products must be purchased from a veterinarian. (More on why later)
3. Products must have been used consistently and appropriately. Basically, don't put it on yourself expecting it to work on the dogs, make sure you use the correct sized dosage for the correct species, and you didn't apply it right after a bath.
4. Households with six or more animals are not eligible for this guarantee.
5. Pets must be treated consistently for 3-6 months in order to break the flea life cycle.
For all the information I have written out, but in an official capacity, check out this PDF. Most of the facts in this article are pulled from my time as a veterinary technician and receptionist, but it's always good to go straight to the source!
