    My Mom's neighbor has a small house dog that has a flea problem. They have bombed, Frontlined, and every other thing they can think of to get the fleas off the pup.

    Will Brewest Yeast help? If so how much and how long do they give it to Riley? She's about 20 pounds.

    Sometimes you have to spray the yard or area the dog is outside too with an outdoor treatment (if feasable). Do they have other animals? Cats too? Treat all the animals for fleas if there are more... I dont have experience using brewers yeast.

    Get some "Sergeant's Natural Defence". I used it for the first time a few weeks ago, and it works. Ticks and fleas are starting to prove resistant to frontline

    They also have powder for carpets.

    Your really need to treat all possibly infested areas/animals to get rid of the problem. The house, the yard, every pet that lives in either place. Give the little pests any refuge to go to and they will, only to return in mass after the pesticide wears off.
