It is critical that our pets have a parasite prevention plan. Why? Because many of these parasite infections are ZOONOTIC, meaning that these organisms can be transmitted from animals to people and cause severe illness. Confused about which parasite control option to choose? Here are our recommendations:
- Comfortis: Comfortis is the first FDA-approved, chewable beef-flavored tablet that kills fleas and prevents flea infestations on dogs and cats for a full month. Comfortis requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
- Trifexis: Trifexis is a chewable tablet that kills fleas and prevents infestations, protects against heartworms, and treats and controls adult hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm infections. Trifexis requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
- Vectra 3D: Vectra 3D is a monthly topical, prescription medication, designed to repel and kill fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes on contact. Vectra 3D works within 6 hours, decreasing the risk of vector-borne diseases. This medication is over the counter, but only available for purchase from your veterinarian.
- Revolution: Revolution is a safe and simple monthly topical medication used to protect your pet from heartworms, fleas, and ear mites. It also protects dogs from ticks and sarcoptic mange and cats from roundworms and hookworms. Revolution requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
