Flea Allergy Resurgence

Due to Frontline Breaks
Fleas and Flea Allergy is increasing

Patients MUST be treated with
and IGR and an Adulticide

The best IGRs are lufenuron (oral) or pyriproxifen (topical)
these will handle 90% of the flea control during the year
even when used alone.

Adulticides should be used when
1. fleas are observed
2. known exposure is predicted
3. lumbar itching increases
