Flea and Tick Prevention

If you can afford it and your dog can handle them. I think an oral medication is the way to go for flea and tick prevention. The oral medication covers the entire dog opposed to a topical. I was using a topical "Frontline" on my dogs for fleas and ticks. But it didn't work very well. My veterinarian recommended "Simparica". I have had them on Simparica for over a year and a half, no fleas and those nasty tiny gnats stay off of my dogs. None of the three dogs have had any reactions to the medication. I do not live in an area that has tics so I cannot attest to it keeping them off. Simparica is suppose to kill 5 types of ticks. You will need a prescription from you vet and can find the chewables on Amazon, Chewy, Petmed and the like. There are other brands of oral flea and tick treatments, check them out.
Note: I do not work for "Simparica" nor do I receive any type of benefit, financial or otherwise from recommending this product.

Jblaapbt is an unknown quantity at this point
Topical meds tend to ware off quicker then one month plus the chemicals used aren't so nice and have cause allergies that I've seen with other people's dogs. Oral flea and tick meds are a plus and can be gotten cheap enough at the vet, starting them early in life with giving them oral meds helps keep them from spitting out the pill, or putting it in something they like can help sometimes like cheese or peanut butter to cover the taste of it from them to hopefully allow them time to get it down if not.

Bravecto, BRAVECTO, B-R-A-V-E-C-T-O!

Wouldn't use (nor, have I ever used) anything other than, Bravecto.
It comes in a tasty, soft chew & it works for...(Wait-for-It)...3-Entire-Months!
That's 12 weeks, kiddos!

It costs between $50-$60 per chew. Yet, if you divide that by 3, it's a very reasonable per-month breakdown.
I've actually never tried anything other than Bravecto (Kane is my 1st dog, been on it almost 3 years).
However, dog owning friends of mine have said that, Bravecto works, as-well-as, products, such as Frontline (maybe, a little better).
The upside? It's 2-fold. Frontline is only available in 1 month formulas. Yet, the cost for 1 month of Frontline is (in many cases) equal to, or, GREATER than $60 - for ONLY a 30 day supply. Bravecto, breaks out to $20 (or, less) per month & you don't need to remember to refill each month.
Instead, just 4 times per year....Pretty sweet deal, wouldn't you agree???
