Flea/Tick preventative

What do you use? I currently use frontline Plus but an curious about other options. Have you ever used Program oral flea tablets? Since winter is approaching i was thinking of using that thru the months that Ticks arent usually a problem. Thanks for any ideas.

Advantix. just an fyi...in February, in PA, we had a warm up and my hairdressers dog got lyme's disease during this time. So ticks are still out and it's warmer in Kansas than here.

Re: Flea/Tick preventative

We didn't have them bad in February but it only takes one. I think it's cheaper and less traumatic to keep them on it year round. Though I'm thinking about using garlic in the winter when the chances are less to give their bodies a break.

Re: Flea/Tick preventative

I'm going to use a "natural" version (can't remeber the name right now) for the winter but when the good weather comes, back to Frontline plus. It has never let me down.

We use Bio-spot. But only in the spring/summer months. Up here in MN there is no need to use this during the colder months.

Re: Flea/Tick preventative

I currently use Advantage Multi and have been using this on all my pets for years. I have never had any problems thus far (*knocks on wood*).
