Flea and tick season is just around the corner. Along with these pesky little visitors comes discomfort for you and health concerns for your pet. The safest and most effective way to control fleas and ticks is by using a veterinarian prescribed medication. To help give you an understanding on the many medications prescribed by your veterinarian we have created a list of medications along with what pests they control.

Advantage:

Advantage is among the most popular of flea control medications. It is dispensed from a single vial applied directly to the skin every 28 days. It kills adult fleas only.

Frontline:

Frontline is another very popular flea, tick and chewing lice preventative. It is dispensed in a single vial applied directly to the skin every 30 days. It kills adult fleas, flea eggs and flea larvae. It also prevents all flea stages (eggs, larvae, pupae) from developing. It also works against several different types of ticks. In addition it works against chewing lice. It is waterproof.

Promeris:

Promeris is a new flea and tick control. It is dispensed in a single vial applied directly to the skin every 28 days. It kills adult fleas and also works against several different types of ticks. It is waterproof. 

Note: The Promeris for cats is not effective against ticks.

Comfortis:

Comfortis is another new flea control. It is dispensed as a chewable tablet and should be administered every 30 days, with a meal. It kills adult fleas within 30 minutes and is organic.

Sentinel:

Sentinel is fairly new flea and heartworm control. It is dispensed as a chewable tablet and should be administered every 30 days. It inhibits flea egg development, eliminates the tissue stage of heartworm larvae and also prevents hookworms, roundworms and whipworms.

Heartgard:

Heartgard is the most common form of heartworm medication. It is dispensed as a chewable tablet and should be administered every 30 days. It works by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae and also treats and controls roundworms and hookworms.

For the best efficacy, it is important to administer these products according to the instructions. It is also important to treat all pets in the household with the correct medication.

When using a flea and/or tick control medication it is also vital to discuss the product with your veterinarian prior to administration. By doing so, you and your veterinarian can decide on a medication that is best for your particular situation.
