One of the ways we stretch our flea treatment dollars is to extend the time between treatments by one week. Most flea and tick treatments recommend an application every four weeks and this is mostly for ticks. In our household we go one week long to five weeks. This saves nearly three treatments a year.
Keep in mind that in many cases this schedule would conflict with the manufacturers suggestion and should only be considered if you have very good control of your pet’s flea situation, and/or live in a low to moderate flea environment.
Just a thought. What’s yours?
