    The fleas are really getting to my dogs outside. I have 5 acres that the dogs and horses have free roam of the whole property including around the house. Is there some type of insectide I can use for fleas that I don't have to worry about being toxic to the horses.

    I use that liquid stuff you rub between their shoulders.....Called "Frontline Plus"..Works for two months each application you can get it from your vet or buy it on-line from a discount pet product place.Rub that stuff on..have your dog lay on a sheet and 1/2 hour later..and you can watch the fleas jump off and die...boom..it works fine

    I personally do not like frontline because:

    1)do not like putting chemicals on my dogs (rotties and pits)
    2) put chemicals on my dogs then the kids pet the dogs (and put hands in mouth).

    I use garlic. Only (1) tick last year!
