<<What is the most economical way to prevent fleas in animals? I have been paying 16.00 a month for advantage for each animal( I have two) there must be a cheaper way.

I think you need a systemic approach to minimizing flea problems. I'd do some internet research on fleas and the environments they need sto flourish, and then attack several of those risk factors.

For example, fleas tend to thrive in old piles of wood. If you have such wood around your property, consider getting rid of it. Flea powders may be a way to treat your animals more often at low cost. Massage some flea powder into their coats from time to time.

Washing dog bedding out fairly frequently may help to avoid infestations. And putting an easily washed mat where your dogs like to sleep or lie may make it easier to treat that spot than if just carpet (hard to clean) is there.

So I'd do the research, look for the risk factors that apply to your situation, and treat as many of them as you find convenient.
