What are you using for ticks on your dogs? I have an older lab that developed some medical issues shortly after getting a tick and flea treatment a few years ago. I've been reading about problems with several different brands and the active ingredients.

Another question, how do I get my 1 year old pup (lab) to pick a new spot to relieve himself? I am thinking I will have to exclude him from the old spot and try to reward going in a spot that's acceptable.

Bravecto chewables are great. Tried seresto collar once and it caused a rash that took months to heal.

I use Credelio chewables. One pill is supposed to last 30 days. I go at least six weeks between pills with both my labs and they remain flea and tick free.


Eh...wot?

I used Credelio on my dog! I believe they claim 97% effective on all 4 ticks including the Lone Star tick.


From the PI for Bravecto
Effectiveness:
Bravecto began to kill fleas within two hours after administration in a well-controlled laboratory study. In a European laboratory study, Bravecto killed fleas and Ixodes ricinus ticks and reduced the numbers of live fleas and Ixodes ricinus ticks on dogs by > 98% within 12 hours for 12 weeks. In a well-controlled laboratory study, Bravecto demonstrated 100% effectiveness against adult fleas 48 hours post-infestation for 12 weeks. In well-controlled laboratory studies, Bravecto demonstrated ≥ 93%effectiveness against Dermacentor variabilis, Ixodes scapularis, Rhipicephalus sanguineus , and Haemaphysalis longicornis ticks 48 hours post-infestation for 12 weeks. Bravecto demonstrated ≥ 90%effectiveness against Amblyomma americanum 72 hours post-infestation for 8 weeks, but failed to demonstrate ≥ 90% effectiveness beyond 8 weeks.

In a well-controlled U.S. field study, a single dose of Bravecto reduced fleas by ≥ 99.7% for 12 weeks. Dogs with signs of flea allergy dermatitis showed improvement in erythema, alopecia, papules, scales, crusts, and excoriation as a direct result of eliminating flea infestations.

I read the clinical trial results for Credelio when it first came out and was satisfied with the results. I also researched the side effects of Credelio and other chewables.like Bravecto, Nexgard and Simparica. If I remember correctly, Nexgard and Bravecto had the highest amounts of negative side effects reported including deaths. Credileo had the least amount of side effects and no deaths reported.


Eh...wot?

Expensive for only 8 weeks for the Lone Star tick that has been found far north in Minnesota. Do you travel with your dogs?

An online study against NextGard showed waining (poor) efficacy the last several weeks.
