    REvolution is pretty good since it kills heartworm,hookworm,round worm,ear mites, and fleas. However its tick protection is not great, since it takes up to 5 days to kill ticks which is too long to prevent them transmitting lyme disease and other diseases. It's not even labelled to kill deer tick, which is the one that carries lyme disease. If you live in a tick infested area, you can combine topical Revolution with oral Nexgard as well as other combinations.

    I use Nexgard for fleas/ticks one tablet a month and Heartgard also once a month. My EBD has used two vets in different geographic areas of Florida and they both recommended the same products

    Diatomaceous Earth to kill the fleas. Then witch hazel and lavender essential oil body mist to repel fleas.

    I never use chemicals but essential oils. I walk often in around the Rockies which do have ticks n all. Pups never had issues.

    FOR TICKS

    14 oz of Witch Hazel
    12 drops of Lavender
    15 drops of Citronella
    15 drops of Lemongrass

    Put all in a spray bottle and shake.
