Revolution & Fleas
An_256091 posted:
We give Revolution to our dog, yet he still got fleas. He is an indoor dog. Now our indoor cat has fleas. Can we add a flea collar? We have bathe both animals, treated our cat, and cleaned/vacuum everything.

Could a non-chemical flea collar be added? If so, what one? We are currently in Florida and need to get this under control before we head home in 3 weeks.
