    And don't forget to get something suitable for the cat.

    All animals in a household need to be treated.

    Really? We have always used it and haven't had any problems with ticks or fleas.

    We have used it for a while, is it time for a change? Might give Advantage or Revolution a try. They seem to be quite popular and recommended.

    I find Comfortis (chew tablets) are the best flea treatment! expensive but worth it

    I use: garlic in the dogs diety. Lime sprinkled under the house.
    Swim the dogs daily.
    Sorted!

    On 2 occasions in 7 yrs, i have used capstar. The one off tablet, that works by killing what's on there dead. Does not protect in any way what so ever.
    I prefer to leave their pristine kidneys/liver for more serious ailments.

    fleas: i live in long grass meadow areas, flea haven. yet above regime seems to work for our dogs.

    Garlic is poisonous to dogs and a lot of people who refuse to use chemicals use garlic.. I'm iffy about both but I've decided to go with the chemicals since it doesn't damage my dogs organs.
    I use Advantage and have never had any problems with it(I buy XL Dog tube and it has enough in it to do 3 cats and 3 dogs)

    A little bit of garlic is ok. A whole bulb is not so good.

    There's lots of things that are poisonous to dogs in big quantities (eg 3 whole raw brown onions can kill a big dog dumb enough to eat them), but in small amounts no long term damage. Exceptions being stuff that is toxic to everything like snail bait and ratsack.

    Garlic is ranked #2 on this list of poisonous foods, even above grapes.

    A lot of people I know feed raw eggs, garlic, onion etc and think it's harmless because the dogs don't get sick from it but in reality it does long term damage in the future.

    I do not believe for one minute that garlic is toxic to dogs.

    1/4 clove COOKED daily was recommended by my Holistic Vet.
    She knows more about nutrition than any other "Health Professional" I have ever met.
    She does not make any money by telling me to go buy garlic, sweet potato
    or chinese cabbage at the greengrocer.
