In our temperate climate in South Africa, there’s no such thing as ‘tick and flea season’ – your dog is always susceptible to ticks, fleas and other parasites. These little critters can cause serious harm to your dog’s system; from biliary and tick bite fever to anaemia, flea allergies, and tapeworms. Yuck! Ticks and fleas are the purrfect case for prevention being better than cure.

What is the best tick and flea medication for dogs?

The best tick and flea treatment for dogs is the one that is given consistently! From spot-on treatments to sprays, shampoo, chews, tablets, collars, powders and dips – the type of tick and flea control you choose for your dog will depend on their lifestyle, tolerance, age, size and environment. Spot-on treatments get applied to the dog’s skin at three spots down their back. Sprays and powders can be used directly on their fur and environment like bedding and blankets. If your dog is a regular swimmer, or you also have cats in the household, chews and tablets may be best because the active ingredients can’t be washed off nor can they come into contact with other household pets.

Is there a chemical-free tick and flea repellent?

For dogs who are sensitive to the active ingredients of tick and flea control, the alternative is an ultrasonic tick and flea repellent device, which ensures these parasites won’t attach to your dog. However, you will need to manually remove existing ticks and fleas from your dog and their environment before using this dog size-dependent device.

What do vets give dogs for ticks?

Vets will recommend the tick and flea treatment that is best for your dog’s circumstances. They recommend tick and flea chews for pet pawrents who have busy schedules and need the convenience of giving tick and flea treatments at long intervals.
