This method is also effective, but may be more inconvenient for some pet owners whose animals may not like taking medicine orally.Recently many flea and tick oral medications have been added to the treatment list for dogs. With fleas and ticks becoming immune to traditional treatments, researchers and scientists are bringing in new components to eliminate these pests and protect pets from harmful infestations. Looking for more effective and more convenient product, Simparica has been designed and added to this list.Proticall® is a once-a-month topical flea and tick medication similar to Frontline® the main differences are that it IS marginally water-soluble, and it cannot be used on cats. Proticall® comes in liquid form and is applied by dropper to the skin between the animal’s shoulder blades. The active ingredient, Permethrin, kills flies and mosquitoes, as well as fleas and ticks, on contact. Because the Lyme's tick requires approximately 24 hours to transmit the Lyme's bacteria, this is the best line of defense against Lyme's disease. If your dog swims frequently Proticall may last only two weeks, but may (unlike Frontline) be applied safely as often as every 2 weeks. This medication protects dogs and puppies from pests for about 28 days after application if they are not frequently bathed and do not spend a lot of time in the water-- it should not be applied to puppies less than 4 weeks of age. This medication DOES NOT protect against heartworm disease therefore, your dog will need to take an oral heartworm preventative in addition to Proticall.This is an oral drug that offers flea and tick protection to your dog for up to twelve weeks. One chews provides long lasting protection and starts to kill pests within two hours. It can be used to control the American dog tick, lone star tick, brown dog tick and black-legged tick, which is more than can be said for most flea/tick medications. Bravecto kills existing pests and prevents infestation from occurring for twelve weeks. It requires prescription from a vet and is ideal for puppies and adult dogs alike.
