Okay, so I'm not looking for a preventative. I've decided that I won't be putting any preventatives on my dog, I will only apply something IF she picks up fleas. I don't want to put something monthly on her when she doesn't constantly pick up fleas. I'd rather just treat her if I notice she picks some up (I check her regularly).

My question is, should she pick up a couple fleas, which would be the better product to treat them? Capstar (which kills of existing fleas but doesn't prevent them, which I don't mind) or should I just use Advantage II when she picks up some fleas?

Keep in mind I don't care about preventing or not, I just want to use whichever is safer.

Also, how many times can you treat with Capstar, like per month or something? She doesn't pick up fleas that often but best to know just in case.

I totally agree. Why use toxins on your dog if not necessary. I live I FL, I do not use any flea chemicals whatsoever. And haven't for many years. IF I did see any fleas on them I would use a flea comb to remove them and use human grade DE.
