It's a Dog's Life

I'm sure everyone's heard that after taking the same medication for a long time, it can stop working. Well, I've just discovered that can also apply to pets. We've used and relied on Frontline to protect our dogs and cats from fleas and ticks for many years, but this year, it let us down. By the time I noticed the dog scratching himself and then found a flea on my sock, it was too late. The cat and the dog had fleas and so did my house!
Frontline didn't work anymore, so I asked around and found out that others have had the same problem and had switched over to K9 Advantix II. I made my way to the vet and bought some.
And then, I did what most folks do—I set off bombs (that was soooo nasty and a waste of money).
Two days later, I called an exterminator. Prices ranged from $225 to $295. And then Brown Exterminating Company called me back and their price was $145! I've used them before (many, many years ago) and was glad when they called back and that their price beat all the others.
George Foley came out when he said he would, did the job, and charged exactly what he had quoted. I was still finding a FEW fleas like he said I would, but five days later, I was still not flea-free! So... I called him back and he came out again and sprayed again at no charge. He said he wanted to take care of the problem and would do what it took to make us happy—unlike some companies who do the job and move on.

So, if you live in my area, give George a call! Don't try to tackle the job yourself. It'll give you a headache.
