    We use revolution for heart worm and frontline plus for fleas/ticks. Technically chunk gets a double dose of flea repellant since both are flea treatments. Problem is that ticks are insane where I live (my brother has Lyme disease along with many people I know) and I have woods behind my house so we are even more prone. Hate giving him so much but would hate the pain of heartworm or Lyme more!

    We use Trifexus. She has always done well on this.

    Those of you who use Trifexis....research the internet about the drug. I have 2 personal friends with bulldogs that have died since Dec 18th. Please please please google it and read up on it.

    We use Revolution and Flea 4X - waiting for Sentinel to come back too.
    Also use Cutter Bug Free Backyard for the yard.

    Here is the poll from last year... perhaps it can be of some use in this discussion.

    I researched this but could not really find anything out about the Trifexis. I'm just confused all in all about it.

    I used to use trifexus but read bad things about it. I also noted Bubba was extremely lethargic for a day or so after giving it to him. I will try the apple cider vinegar if the fleas get bad this year.

    I use Heartgard on Lily for heartworm but nothing for flea & tick. I am thinking of trying the apple cider vinegar.

    hi....i have always used sentinel......i have decided in the last few months that all those chemicals are too dangerous for my baby, so trying all natural things, ACV, a mix of some of the essential oils and brewers yeast with garlic for dogs.....hoping it works well enough to stay away for the chemical stuff....
