PREVENTIC This collar is from Virbac and it kills and detaches Ticks for 3 months. It is the only product that my vet says will work well with dogs who go in and out of the water. Since I have used it, the dogs have had zero ticks. I, on the other hand, need to wear one because this is the worst year in memory for ticks in the south.

[QUOTE=windycanyon;802513]I recd an email recently about some holistic preparation that was supposed to be good, but who knows. http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites...k-control.aspxQUOTE]
thanks for posting. very fair price to test out.
I have been using Vectra 3D per my Vet I have only found 1 tic on my pup and he spends alot of time in the high grass around the house. No Flea issues and the only day I found that was after a day of swimming. So I ask this of all of you smarter than I.
Does swimming reduce the or eleminate the effectiveness of the product?

Anyone use the Liberty brand of flea tick topical, that is available at Tractor Supply??
Swimming doesn't lessen Vectra, it is waterproof provided you don't bath them with soap 24 hrs before or 24 hrs after a treatment. With Vecta some dogs may experience "creeping skin" after it is applied but it doesn't cause any problems. It usually only lasts a day and if you keep applying the product each month it shouldn't happen again after a couple of treatments. It has happened to a couple of dogs at our clinic and the owners thought the dogs were very uncomfortable and wanted there money back and they called Summit and Summit reimbursed them. The info I just gave is from the tech support lady at Summit labs that makes Vectra. If the pets seem uncomfortable after treatment they can bath the dog in dawn and that will lessen the "creepies" but it will also lessen the product. Benadryl can also be given.
Generic products may or maynot have the same ingredients as the real macoy what you are paying for is the support if your dog has an adverse reaction to the medication. If you get the products from the vet and there is a problem the company will pick up the cost from treatments or they garentee there products if your not happy you get your money back. Can get that treatment from generic products.

I pulled this up since one of my puppy buyers was asking about flea control where she lives, and I knew somewhere there was a discussion.
Amy, the Fiproguard has been working great for me. Just ordered another couple year supply. That said, we only really need to apply it for ~2, maybe 3 mos of the year. No flea issue here.
