How do I choose the right flea and tick treatment for my dog or puppy?

That’s why, no matter what solution you choose, you can trust that our flea and tick treatments for dogs will help your four-legged friend live a happy, healthy and pain-free life. Our treatments are available in a range of options to suit the needs of your canine companion. Choose from tablets, sprays, shampoos, collars or chewable treats available for small, medium, and large dogs. Rest assured that with these products, you can provide the utmost care that your furry friend deserves.

What are the different types of flea and tick treatments available?

From tablets, sprays and chewable treats to shampoos, topical spot treatments and specially-designed collars that can aid in the control of paralysis ticks for multiple weeks, we offer an extensive range of flea and tick treatments for dogs. Whether your furry friend needs protection from brown ticks, bush ticks or paralysis ticks, our solutions will protect your dog and prevent them from pain and misery.

What is the safest flea and tick treatment for dogs?

When selecting the safest flea and tick treatment for your dog, it's important to consider factors such as age, breed, health history and lifestyle. No two pets are the same, so what works for one may not be suitable for another. Consulting with your veterinarian is crucial to determine the best option. Dog flea collars, topical treatments, and oral medications are commonly recommended. Examples include the Seresto collar for long-lasting protection and Frontline Plus for flea and tick prevention. Oral medications like Simparica and Bravecto offer convenience and effectiveness. However, it's essential to be cautious with children and pets' exposure to the treatments. Each option has pros and cons, and your veterinarian can guide you in making an informed decision based on your dog's specific needs.

What do vets recommend for dog flea and tick control?

Most vets recommend flea tablets for dogs along with all-in-one solutions that offer protection from paralysis ticks, brown ticks and bush ticks. Every product in our range kills fleas fast before they can lay eggs and kills ticks quickly, so the chances of Ehrlichiosis illness and paralysis are drastically reduced. Whether you choose a collar, a chewable that you can give your dog once a month, a spray and rinse solution that you can apply to their coat, or a tablet, dog flea treatments are an essential part of keeping your pooch happy and comfortable.

How often do dogs need flea and tick treatment?

While it depends on the product you select, and its specifications, ticks and fleas are rife in Australia — so most dogs will be affected at some point during their lives. Given fleas can lay between 40 and 50 eggs every day, vets recommend monthly treatments for all dogs — regardless of their age, breed or weight. Using a preventative dog flea and tick treatment is an easy and effective way to break the life cycle and remove the risk of infestation.
