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 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.
