Pets Tips for The Average Joe

Why Use Flea and Tick Pills for Dogs?

People around the world say it is a cheering experience when they show love towards their pet. Numerous studies conducted have confirmed this to be true. But, absolutely, you would agree that it is a bit hard to watch our pet incessantly scratching his fur because of the itchiness from ticks and fleas.

Man’s love for pets has paved the way for the production of tick and flea-control products. There are huge varieties available, from topical solutions and ointments to tablets and flea bombs and all.

Based on popular belief, these products are more effective when combined. For example, when a dog likes to play in wet areas like the beach or the pool, topical products may not be fully useful because the drugs they contain can simply be washed away. In such a case, your dog should be given an oral drug instead. As for flea bombs, of course, they can also be effective, but only to a limited extent. Flea bombs will kill ticks and fleas that may be lying around in your house, but the moment your dog steps outside, he will cease to be protected. Flea bombs work to kill ticks and fleas inside your house, but as soon as your dog steps outside, he will not be protected anymore.

Considered an innovation in flea control and treatment, although not actually new in the market, are flea and tick pills for dogs.

So what advantages are offered by flea and tick pills for dogs over other products that are made for the exact same purpose?

Palatability

In most cases, flea and tick pills for dogs taste like beef, which makes administering them so much easier, both for the pet and the pet owner. As you’d probably guess, the pills are simply mixed together with the dog’s meal.

Safety

Flea and tick pills for dogs are so safe even fourteen-week-old puppies can have them. Additionally, these products considered a ‘reduced-risk pesticide,’ meaning they are extremely toxic to those little critters but very safe for your dog.

Convenience

You don’t have to isolate your dog while it undergoes treatment. You can play with him as usual, whether or not you have given him the medication.

Long-Lasting Effect

There are flea and tick pills for dogs that last up to seven days, but some are only taken once a month and give your protection for a period of 30 days. Such a convenient option indeed for those who are so busy and can’t find time to apply powder, lotion or ointments to their pets.

Veterinarians may actually recommend pills for dogs with sensitive skin because they do not agitate the skin or even touch it. As long as you choose the right product, you will get the solution you want. Not all pills are made equal, so do your research and ask your vet for tips.
