I tried several things on Precious and Shadow. The darn fleas wouldn't go
away. I finally bought a flea comb at Walmart for under $4.00. Shadow's
fur is very fine and fuzzy. It seemed like the purfect breeding ground for
fleas. I started combing him at least twice a day and the first several
days I got 50-60 fleas off each day. Now I comb him once in a while and
rarely get a flea. I like this method because I didn't have to use anything
on the furniture or carpets. I called Shadow my flea magnet. I won't use
chemicals on him unless I absolutely have to. Good luck.
