Flea and Tick Control Products
When spring rolls around, it’s time to put your dog or cat on a flea and tick preventative. These will keep pesky fleas and ticks off your pet. Fleas and ticks can cause infection, illness, skin allergies, and discomfort to your pet. We offer many different products to choose from. If you have questions on which product is best for you and your pet, give us a call and we will help you decide. Below, is a list of all of the products we offer:
Frontline is one of the more popular products we sell. It is a topical that goes on your pet’s skin, in between the shoulder blades, and it offers one month of protection against fleas, ticks, and chewing lice. Frontline will kill flea eggs that are laid on your pet before they can hatch. If you buy three doses of Frontline from us, you can get one dose free.
Bravecto is a chewable pill that offers three months of protection against fleas and ticks. Most pets have no problem eating this pill; it’s supposed to taste good to them. The cat version of this product comes as a topical so you don’t have to worry about a giving a pill to your cat. Bravecto offers a $15 rebate if you buy two doses at once. That’s six months of protection.
Advantage Multi is another one-month topical flea and tick control product. The benefit of Advantage Multi is that it also offers protection against internal parasites as well. The dog Advantage Multi offers protection against heartworms, heartworm microfilaria (baby heartworms), fleas, hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and sarcoptic mange (a mite that causes skin problems). It does not, however, offer protection against ticks. The cat Advantage Multi offers protection against heartworms, fleas, hookworms, roundworms, and ear mites. The cat version of this product can also be used on ferrets as well for protection against fleas and heartworms.
Seresto is a collar that your pet wears and it offers protection that lasts for eight months. This collar kills by contact, meaning that fleas and ticks don’t have to bite your pet to die. This collar is easy to use, non-greasy, odorless, and there is no more need to worry about forgetting to give your pet its monthly preventative.
