Thread: Flea drops and worm tablets suggestions please?

  1. #1

    Question Flea drops and worm tablets suggestions please?

    So I am in the market for flea drops (water resistant) and worming tablets.
    I live in WA and have given Hooch Frontline plus for fleas and Purina total care (heart wormer and all wormer in one).
    We have to buy some more and I am not sure what to get. I tried researching online but there are so many opinions that I am all confused.
    What do you use and are you happy with it?

    I use frontline plus in Summer for ticks and comfortis in winter just to mix it up a bit, and value heatworm.

    I save a lot of money by buying EXTRA LARGE dog frontline, then tipping it in a container and using a measured dose via syringe I get about 6 doses for my dogs out of one satchet, saves a fortune..

    I use interceptor for heart worm and intestinal worms and comfortis for fleas. You can get sentinal which is heart worm, fleas and intestinal worms but it doesn't help if you already have fleas, it only keeps them away.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    My vet put me onto a chewable tablet that does fleas, intestinal worms and heartworms all in one, and just needs to be given once a month. It's called Paranormis. My girls had their first tablet yesterday so we'll see if it works

    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    Hi ClareBear!! I live in Forest Lakes, where are you?
    You are lucky to stock it at work - they are expensive, do you work for a vet?

    Heya, I use Comfortis for fleas on Oskar. Bit pricey but it's worth it! Chewable tablet and he has nooo fleas at all!!! Heartworm, he has a needle I think, and Intestinal worms, a tablet every 3 mths.

    I am also on the Sunshine coast Oskar, but have to use Frontline in the Summer for ticks, they are pretty bad where we are as the bush turkeys and possums bring them into my yard. I have had 2 incidents of paralysis ticks on the dogs, one at 8 weeks old, so pretty scary, I use comfortis when the ticks are not around as it only kills fleas.

    A vet told me a long time ago, where i used to work, if you can, mix them up a bit using different brands every now and then because even though the active ingredients are quite similar in most, it may help to avoid a build-up causing an immunity to certain ingredients in the future.
