Bravecto eliminates current flea infestations and prevents new ones from developing for 12 weeks. With one chew, Bravecto is easier to give and less to worry about for you! Bravecto requires a prescription from your veterinarian.A necessary part of having a companion pet is protecting them from fleas and ticks. When our dogs run and play outside, these pests wait for just the right moment, and jump on for a free ride. Their purpose in life is to feed and breed, and they need our pets to do it. We may think it’s random chance that our dog brings home an unwanted pest, but actually fleas and ticks are programmed to survive by detecting animals who will host them and planning a cunning launch.Protecting your dog from harmful fleas and ticks has never been so easy! NexGard is a brand new, revolutionary flea and tick preventative from the makers of Frontline®, the #1 choice of veterinarians. It's the first flea and tick killer of its kind because it comes in a yummy, beef-flavored soft chew that protects your dog from a flea and tick infestation for a full 30 days. That means, you don't have to worry anymore about messy topicals, or accidentally washing your dog's preventative off while bathing! Also, it can be taken alongside your dog's heartworm medication, without interruption. NexGard keeps your pet protected from adult fleas by killing them before they have a chance to lay eggs, which reduces the possibility of a flea infestation. Plus, it kills 3 types of ticks (the American dog tick, the black-legged (Deer) tick and the Lone Star tick) which decreases the risk of your pet developing a deadly tick-borne disease. NexGard requires a prescription from your veterinarian.The second category of prevention is our topical preventatives. There are two types, one for cats and one for dogs. The first is Revolution for cats, which protects against fleas, intestinal parasites, ear mites, and heartworms. It’s a pretty all-encompassing product. There’s also Vectra for dogs, which repels and kills fleas, ticks, mosquitos and lice on dogs. Because it repels these insects, your dog doesn’t get bitten, which further reduces your pet’s risk of disease.The first category of prevention is our oral products, which include Trifexis for dogs, which prevents heartworm, intestinal parasites, and fleas. It’s a good, fast-acting product. There’s also Sentinel for dogs, which protects against heartworms and intestinal parasites using the same drug as Trifexis, but includes a flea sterilizer. Sentinel also prevents whipworms. Heartgard is another product for dogs that prevents against heartworms and intestinal parasites, but doesn’t include whipworms.Hey guys. Was curious what you use to protect your pets? I have used frontline plus and K9 advantix 2 on my dogs in the past with no issues at all. I don’t like the idea of using these pesticides on my baby. With the spring eventually going to get here in Kentucky, I’d like your opinions on the best safe prevention for flea and ticks.
