Fleas and tick prevention

Recommended Posts

Met a Pro Dog walker today and she swears by Brewers Yeast Tablets - not sure if she is a bit odd but, by god, she was stunning so I could have listened to her talking all day!!

My parents used to give the show dogs them back in the 70's&80's. 

I prefer a back of the neck combined treatment.

Not a collar, a tablet taken every 3 month,  We had regular tick problems including 2 infestation of tick nymphs - solved by B

wasn't there some bad press about Bravecto ?

Yes in the States - rapidly died a death and was, I believe, a bit like the MMR scare  -  we have had no problems so far in 4 years.

Fleas are no longer seasonal. My two have had them all winter. Today I spent £50 on Frontline. The Lady behind the counter said there was no guarantee it would work!

We found Frontline does not work anymore here. We use Advantage spot on now. You can buy it online without prescription. Been flea free since we started using that on the dogs and cats.
