Angry Major Flea Issues!! HELP!!!

Well, in my country I have 2 dogs. Kobe and Brittany. They're both Shih Tzus and are almost 1 year and a 1/2. In the Philippines, there are a TON of fleas and ticks! :( They seem to have an infestation... Do any of you know any working flea and tick medications? I could always buy it and ship it to them... PLEASE help me! I don't know how much they're suffering, please! They're coats are kept short but not too short. HELP!

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Flea dipping your pet store sells medications you feed them and ones you put on the coat not sure if a bath would help.

Well, I'm looking for a certain brand. Is frontline+ a good brand? :l I'm looking for external treating, they're really picky so they won't really want to eat that...

Frontline is good. Just stay away from anything made by Hartz.

I hope so, too. But it costs so much! But I'm sure $35 is cheap for a flea medication, right?

I buy frontline sold for the largest size dog available and use a pipette or syringe to measure out the right amount for my dog/cat's weight. It's much cheaper this way. The vet taught me how to do it.

The other dogs he has, has fleas and ticks, too. I'll need to call him later on how much it's going to cost. Well, if there are $300 shoes than it's definitely worth it!
