    What kind of flea and tick preventative are you using on your dogs that is safe for dogs that are around cats? I know K9 Advantix is not safe to be used on dogs that around closely around cats. I need a tick preventative more than anything.

        My dog sleeps in bed with me. Like curled in right in my arm pit area. I've read seresto is a no go for a dog that sleeps in bed. Do your dogs sleep with you?

          Thanks! We'll likely give them a try.

            I am goimg back to trying frontline plus.. Some say it works some, say it doesn't -
            I used it for many years before switching to other prescription products that my dog had a bad reaction to amd many products didn't cover ticks

            Let us know how you like the seresto collars :)

            Here is a simple tick removal method I tried

            Tick removal made easy !

            I use next guard for my dogs. It's a chewable preventative. I previously used Frontline plus but at my vets recommendation I switched. No oily residue on the dogs is nice too

              We have always used comfortis, it is a pill you give once a month prescribed by your vet. We later switched to trifexis since it is a heart worm preventative as well as a flea killer. Both worked for us! I never had great results with the skin applications like frontline.
