There is a new product out for dogs who have fleas or for prevention. It is called the "Ovicollar". it contains methoprene which kills the flea eggs and breaks the cycle of fleas. It spreads through the animal's skin to completely cover your pet within 24 hours. The eggs wither and die instead of falling off into your carpets to continue their cycle. The best part is that it is approximately $20.00 and lasts for 8 months on dogs (full 12 months for cats) but you have to get it from your vet so far, in combination with the salt/borax vacuuming method.
Our vet has still recommended Revolution as the best spring treatment as it is also for heartworm, some intestinal parasites, and now ticks as well. We had no luck with Advantage last year and will return to Revolution next spring for sure. Hope this helps
Thanks so much for this post. We have a large dog and 2 cats and flea and heartworm prevention medication is SO expensive. I'm definitely going to talk to our vet about this. Do you know if they also have a product for cats?
