    He is a cutie. We don't use any flea and tick meds, we use Sentinel for heart worms and it takes care of fleas also. I have heard of some people using diatomaceous earth for fleas and ticks, but I have never tried it. We don't have a flea and tick problem.

    Hi, we use Revolution. It takes care of fleas, ticks, heart worm, and Sarcoptic Mange. It's administered once a month between the months of June and November. We have great results with it, never had a flea, and no side effects or Illness from it. This is our second season using Revolution.

    We use Sentinel as well for the fleas and heartworm. I've heard using eucalyptus oil is a natural remedy for ticks, but I've never tried it since we don't have ticks in our area. Good luck with your decision.

    We need to use a tick prevention here and have opted for Frontline this year (last year when Castor was a pup we did not use anything). Frontline has been effective - no ticks at all. Only side effect was that Castor was itchy the first two days and that he then developed a nose rope rash that may have been connected with his exposure to Frontline. We don't know but the rash did appear a week or so after we applied Frontline. It was cured within a week.

    There are possible side effects of all those products so consult your vet and also ask other dog owners in your area of their experiences. We opted for Frontline as noone we met had noticed any side effects of that product.
