What is the best and most cost effective heart worm and flea

This answer was rated:

What is the best and most cost effective heart worm and flea and tick medication for dogs?

Drew :

Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

Drew :

All of the available products are great at preventing heartworm disease --

Drew :

the differences are mostly in the flea control area.

Drew :

My preference is Trifexis, which is a once a month pill that kills fleas, intestinal worms, and prevents heartworm.

Drew :

However, there's little to no tick repellent effect.

Drew :

If ticks are an issue, then a topical product may be needed instead.

Drew :

or a tick collar can be used, such as Scalibor or Preventic.

Drew :

there's not going to be a single product that does "everything" well,

Drew :

so you need to decide what the priority is.

JACUSTOMER-fhj74nx3- :

Drew :
