They do die but they always seem to come back is there anything i can do at all? I ask cause lately hes been down and not very energetic and its quite sad to see him that way

If he's acting strangely, then he probably needs to see a vet. Fleas can cause a variety of illnesses in animals. But in the mean time, buy Frontline or some other type of flea deterrent. You can't give your dog a bath for 24 hours once the meds are applied between the shoulder blades. Also: vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Fleas will live in your clothes, couch cushions, on your drapes, etc.

Hope that helps.

Frontline seems to work... just make sure you get the right kind for the weight of your dog. It kills eggs and fleas both... which other methods just kill the fleas.

What breed is he? I suggest shaving him completely, then using products. If all fails, you don't necessary need to TAKE him to the vet. Just go to the vet yourself and ask them to recommend you a good flea product. Buy it from them, and use it.

Anywhooo..
