Does sentinel kill mites ...

Does sentinel kill mites

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

Finegan and fergus they are 10 weeks old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Finegan?

Comes with 4 other litter mates all are itching

I am sorry to hear your puppies are having this problem.

Unfortunately, sentinel does not kill mites.

To get rid of ear mites, Revolution is the best product. It is a topical available from your vet.

For mites affecting the skin, an oral medication is best. Simparica, Nexgard, and Bravecto are the choices for that. These are also available from your vet via a prescription. These are the best routes to go to take care of these problems. The skin mite medications also treat and prevent fleas and ticks.
