I have been using Front Line Plus on Jezebel since she was old enough for it. Lately I have noticed a couple of fleas when I brush or bath her? Can fleas become immune to the med? If so, any recommendations such as a different type?
Also, my other dogs do not have any fleas on them just Jezebel

I would probably say no that they cannot become immune but I'm not 100% certain. At the rate that fleas can reproduce we would have all manners of medicine resistant fleas! I find a flea or two from time to time on my puppy and he is on the skin drops and his heartworm meds have flea stuff in them. He gets them sometimes when we play in the yard for a long time or come from the dog park but never an infestation or anything. I wouldn't worry about them too much...

I have heard so many people using Front line and having flea issues. I honestly would switch. I use K9 Advantix and I have never had a flea issue, I have been using it for about 2 years now. Great product.
