May 12, 2017 - What's the best oral flea medication
We have new puppy a Morkie, she is 3 months old and on her third set of shots. She is never outdoors, she is taken to vet in carrier (new) and she was at the vet today and I found a small tick on her, And I had found one on her previously but didn’t equate that she might have gotten it from the vets office. I am concerned that they might think I was insulting them by mentioning it. How do I go about it? As I said she has not been outdoors since we picked her up in April. except to go to the vet. She weighs now 3lb.4oz and they put some flea medication on her skin I believe for fleas I think it was called Resolve or the like I have correct name in folder not available at the moment. She is so small I don’t want her having this problem. Does the Vet office have to spray for parasights?
We also saw many positive reviews for an oral medication called (Est. $90 and up for six doses). Like Capstar, Comfortis works only on adult fleas, but its effects last a full month, so vets say it will continue to kill new fleas as they develop. Unlike Capstar, Comfortis is available only with a prescription from a vet, and it can only be given to pets at least 14 weeks old.
Choosing a Cat Flea and Tick Control Treatment - With so many brands out there, which one is the best? How long do they last? Should you go with topical or oral flea treatments? I am no expert in this field, but having owned several cats over the years, I received plenty of feedback while asking our vet how to proceed. Much like medication you would give to yourself or your child, you need to consider things like weight, age, and other things like is the female cat pregnant or nursing. Also, some of the flea and tick treatments are not appropriate for younger kittens. Talk with your veterinarian about the best options for your cat. Our vet is recommended for years and just recently gave us the go ahead to try Bayer Advantage. The basic instructions for any type of flea or tick care is - follow all directions for the application of the medication. Don't reapply before the 30 days are up - even if you do see fleas. Always wear gloves when you apply the treatment. Cat Flea Control Reviews - When we searched online we found websites from Petco, Petsmart, and Amazon list dozens of owner reviews pointing out the pros and cons to each flea treatment. Obviously the best source is your local vet, but hearing what other pet owners have to say is also worth consideration. Like doctors, some vets may be paid to promote certain products so listening to an unbiased pet owner may help in your decision making. You can .There are different medications for different pet weights, so your pet gets just the right amount of treatment. The flea control tablets are one of the top recommendations by Consumer Search. They are also one of the best-selling items on Amazon and have outstanding reviews, including more than 2,200 five-star reviews on Amazon and more than 400 five-star reviews on 1-800-PetMeds. They are also commonly compared to the best-selling Comfortis flea treatment.After administering this Sentry Fiproguard Plus flea medication on my 3 cats (one who's nursing a 3 day old kitten) I went on to read the reviews and began to panic after reading the horror people have gone through with this brand. I am however one of the lucky ones. My cats had no bad reactions and the next day I started finding dead fleas on my bed and in my restroom floor. This stuff really works. I kept my cats away for a few hours after I administering the medication so they wouldn't lick it off one another.While Revolution worked on my kitty last year, it is no longer working. However, my vet bought the unused medication back from me and we are now using Activyl. I believe that Revolution is a good product which worked well in the past. The fleas in Central Florida seem to have adapted to Revolution, just as they previously adapted to products like Frontline and Advantage. Revolution might work well where you live, but not on my kitty!
