Now that the warm weather is here, so are all of the fleas, ticks, and other parasites that are not only irritating, but can cause some serious health problems in your pet. In this part of the country, year round parasite preventative is recommended, but is absolutely essential during the spring and summer months! There are certainly a lot of parasite preventative products on the market, so how do you know which ones to choose? Buy only veterinarian recommended brands and products. These products not only work better, but are the safest products to use on your pets.

Recommended products for canines:
Frontline Plus: Kills fleas and ticks within 24 hrs. Apply once monthly.

Capstar: Kills adult fleas within 30 min. Not a preventative, but a one- dose product to offer almost immediate relief from fleas.

Sentinel: Heartworm preventative, intestinal parasite preventative,and flea sterilizer (prevents flea reproduction).

Interceptor: Heartworm preventative and intestinal parasite preventative.

Recommended product for felines:

Revolution: Heartworm preventative, flea preventative, intestinal parasite preventative, and ear mite preventative.
