JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Juno?

Hello this is Dr. Holloway, but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a a licensed veterinarian. I understand that you have a flea problem with your pet Juno and are currently using Frontline. I too am not a fan of Frontline as I have seen many clients have issues with its efficacy. You may be able to safely use another product if enough time has passed since applying it.

How long ago did you apply the Frontline?

Are you seeing fleas still on him? Live fleas?
