Flea Medication - Safe? Effective? Toxic
I hate giving baxter so many medications. Two courses of antibiotics, a dewormer, tick junk, flea junk, and its Florida so the whole heartworm thing is next due to the mosquitos.
Every time I take him to the doggy daycare though, he comes home with fleas, so I had to put him on Comfortis ... and it works great.
But get this - it actually makes his blood poisonous to fleas, so they bite, and die.
Great. So im pumping him full of a toxin that kills insects. Thats such an archaic, gross, weird way to prevent fleas, but I guess its the best there is these days.
Is comfortis good? safe? and what do you guys use that has *worked* ...? Hopefully without making them sick long term ... which im sure any of these will ..
