Win the War on Fleas

As the weather gets warmer a creepy, crawly, nasty, blood thirsty army of fleas are on the march. Their numbers are building up, in your carpet, between the floorboards, outside in the garden, in your pet’s bedding and on your pets!

In warmer months, the flea lifecycle is as short as 2 - 3 weeks and flea numbers can build up rapidly if preventative measures are not taken, both on and off your pet.

Fleas are miserable little parasites. They suck blood, cause distress, cause discomfort and spread disease.  Now is the time to take action! Fortunately ridding your pet of fleas is a lot easier than it used to be and there is now a large range of ‘state of the art’ products available which are effective and safe – ‘modern warfare’ against the enemy – the dreaded flea!

Most pet owners are used to using the topical ‘spot on’ type preparations, such as Advantage, Advantix, Advocate (Advantage Multi), Frontline Plus and Revolution. These products are still effective and are easy to use. Recently a once a month tablet that kills fleas for a full month came on the market called Comfortis.

Advantage – is easy to use, can be applied after bathing, safe for use on dogs and cats. It is very fast acting. Advantage crystals also fall from the pet's coat into areas where they rest a lot or their bedding where it will kill the developing flea larvae. Advantage may not last as long as other products if your pet is bathed often or swims a lot.

Advantix – is easy to use, controls ticks as well as fleas. Also repels mosquitoes so is very good for dogs in high mosquito areas. Advantix contains an ingredient which is highly toxic to cats, so should not be used where cats and dogs socialize.

Advocate (Advantage Multi) - is a new multi-purpose product that combines imidacloprid (Advantage) with moxidectin so it kills fleas, as well as prevents heartworm, hookworm and roundworm in dogs and cats, plus whipworm in dogs, and controls lice and ear mites in cats, and mange and lice in dogs with monthly application.

Comfortis – is a new ‘once a month’ tablet containing spinosad, that quickly kills fleas for up to one month. The tablets are meat flavored and come in five different sizes for dogs from 5 lbs up to 120 lbs in weight. Comfortis does not control ticks or other parasites besides fleas.

Frontline Plus – is easy to use, controls ticks as well as fleas, safe for use on dogs and cats. Frontline Plus is more water resistant than other meds so is good for dogs that swim a lot or are frequently bathed. Contains an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) to kill flea eggs and larvae. Do not bathe animals for 48 hours prior to and after application.

Revolution – also has a multiple action. It is easy to use, controls some ticks as well as fleas. The main advantage of Revolution is that it also treats heartworm as well as ear mites and intestinal worms in cats. Like Advocate, Revolution eliminates the need to use separate flea and heartworm preparations each month.

These products are a lot safer for pets and for their owners than the older style dips, rinses and powders which contain toxic chemicals such as organo-phosphates or organo-chlorides.

Starting a regular monthly treatment program with one of these products will help you not only win the battle, but win the war against these nasty little pests!
