We use Nexguard. A bit expensive, but it works well on ticks, which I find many of them do not

This ( Nexguard) is what we use on our Aussie. The cat gets a topical Cheristan (sp?).

Frontline works good for ticks and fleas. I have also used Permethrin with good luck.

I use Credelio, a monthly chewable. It keeps fleas and ticks from biting my labs, works really well. I only give them a dose about every six weeks during the spring summer and fall, none in the winter.


Eh...wot?

You better keep them in check early on with one of the good monthly treatments.

If they get established in the yard or, God forbid, carpet you'll play hob getting them gone.

What your vet recommends. Either way, it's not cheap. But the alternative is worse.

Most of your heart worm meds have flea and tick prevention as well. See if what your giving for heart worm meds doesnít already have it.

Thanks. Iíll try the nexguard next time I get to town. We donít give the dog heart worm medicine is that something most people do? We donít have a vet in town anymore either. I grew up with mutts and never gave them anything and the 2 lasted my childhood. After having this dog for 5 months it got Parvo and almost died.

Wash the dog with a good flea soap or Blue Dawn dish soap, then dust the dog and bedding with "Seven" dust. Sounds like it's a house dog and that gonna be another problem when the house is full of fleas.

I use Heartguard and Nexguard for heart worm and fleas and ticks Nexguard really does a number on ticks When we where younger we never took a dog to the vet for anything Now our pets are so much a part of the house that many people have pet insurance .They have shots for rabies distemper ,parvo etc .And none of it is cheap .And people pay thousands of dollars just to get a breed they want One more way that times have changed As trappers we are doing a service to everyone by catching and removing wild animals that carry and spread those pet diseases .

Here we need to get the dog an Rx from the vet for heartworm meds like Heartguard or Iverhart.

Flea and tick meds are over the counter. We use Seresto collars and they work very well.

I will never let my dogs suffer with fleas again

look where they are breeding is the best final solution, animal dust and dander is where the larvae are breeding
otherwise you have to keep repeating the cycle

Aside from fleas, best & cheapest shots for dogs is Tractor supply, they have different shots that take care of Parvo & all the other nasty's dogs can catch.

our vet has sold us Vectra and it worked well , had to do the cats one time also
the dog is 8 pounds we also had a 90 pound dog as well as some 12 pound cats

spraying around the house with permethrin

have also used seresto collars they are almost no savings on the vectra

Nexguard works well on fleas and ticks. I have also used Comfortis which is flea only. Both have great results.

Nexguard did not work at all.for my chihuhau mix..it's been 3 weeks since I treated him.and still.fleas all over him..I dont have fleas In The carpet or anything..

At 28.00 for the pill I'm whizzed.

I literally just.got off the phone with the vet.

They said they don't have the topical..

I called another local vet and they do have the topical so im gonna change his vet next week.

He's going back.to the topical Revolution.
