Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H for short. I am sorry you seem to be having flea an tick troubles with your pet and lack of transportation is a definite hindrance to getting over the counter flea/tick preventatives. Typically flea/tick pills are not available without them seeing a veterinarian first, but you can purchase topical flea/tick preventatives online without a visit in most cases.

I would only recommend visiting either Dr's Foster and Smith or for flea/tick preventative options. My top choices are the Seresto collar (flea/tick preventative that lasts up to 8 months) or Advantix topical. Best of luck!

Is there anything else I can assist you and your pets with today?
