What Flea & Tick Products Do You Use?

I use BioSpot. It works wonders, and, it protects against mosquitoes, too. I have never once had a problem with fleas, ticks, and the mosquitoes stay away, too. It's also waterproof which is great. What do you all use? (Also, for those who use BioSpot, let me know as I can give you a link for a free three-month supply).

I use revolution~$12 per dose 50-85# dog, and that is heartworm/flea/ tick/ and some parasites, get it from my vet. So far so good after a year of using it.

Re: What Flea & Tick Products Do You Use?

I typically use Advantage or Advantix - but have used Vectra which is semi-new to the market - I wouldn't recommend it since I used it on Zeke and the greasyness was still on his coat 2 weeks later (blech) ... but hey, I got it free from the Rep that comes to our clinic ... but will use the free Advantage I get from now on ...

I haven't ever used Biospot, but the only thing I do know is that I've seen bad reactions from dogs & cats when working in the Animal ER for 4 yrs ... and the worst is when ignorant dog owners put the dog product on their CATS! o...m...g... the poor things... and yes, I have seen a couple die from it - talk about toxic!

Re: What Flea & Tick Products Do You Use?

I use the new Advantix, takes care of fleas, ticks, nats, and flies! So far I love it! But it too can NOT be used on cats, and cats shouldn't be around a dog after you apply Advantix for the first 24 hrs!
