I have a 10-pound maltipoo, and I've found that an ingestible flea medication called Comfortis works really well for her. It's a small pill administered monthly. It's not the most affordable option, as I've paid up to $25 per pill, but it seems to be the best flea prevention method I've found. You do need a prescription for this medication.

Truly effective medication for pets (just like humans) is not cheap. The reason? Because it actually works. Remember the old addage "You get what you pay for!" Bear in mind that your pets are your children, forever. They never grow up and go away to school or get a job and move out. They rely on us for everything, until they are no longer with us. Be thankful that these med are available. Imagine life without them. I know.....having pets can be very expensive. But what would our lives be like without them? I would give my pups a kidney if they needed it!
