Advantages of Flea and Tick Pills for Your Dogs

People around the world say it is a cheering experience when they show love towards their pet. Numerous studies conducted have confirmed this to be true. But, absolutely, you would agree that it is a bit hard to watch our pet incessantly scratching his fur because of the itchiness from ticks and fleas.

Man’s love for pets has led to the production of tick and flea-control products. A lot of different products are available, such as flea bombs, topical solutions and ointments and flea tablets.

Popular belief says these products are more potent when used together. For example, when a dog likes to play in wet areas like the beach or the pool, topical products may not be fully useful because the drugs they contain can simply be washed away. In that case, your dog must get an oral drug instead. As for flea bombs, of course, they can also be effective, but only to a limited extent. Flea bombs will kill ticks and fleas that may be lying around in your house, but the moment your dog steps outside, he will cease to be protected. Flea bombs work to kill ticks and fleas inside your house, but as soon as your dog steps outside, he will not be protected anymore.

Flea and tick pills for dogs, though not exactly new in the market, are considered a breakthrough.

So what advantages of flea and tick pills for dogs compared to other products produced for the same purpose?

Palatability

Most flea and tick pills for dogs are made with the taste of beef, making it easier for pet owners to give them. As you might guess, the pills are simply mixed with the dog’s meal.

Safety

Flea and tick pills for dogs are so safe even fourteen-week-old puppies can have them. In addition, these products are considered a ‘reduced-risk pesticide,’ which means while they are extremely toxic to the little critters, they are perfect safe for your dog.

Convenience

No need for you to isolate your pet while being treated. You can play with him as normally as possible even after you have given the medication.

Long-Lasting Effect

Some flea and tick pills for dogs last up to a week, but there are those that can be taken once a month and your dog will be protected for an entire 30 days. This is indeed very convenient, especially if you are a busy person who may not have time to apply lotions, ointments or whatever.

Veterinarians usually recommend pills for dogs having sensitive skin as they do not agitate the skin and may not even touch it. Just make sure you choose the right product so you can get the results you want. Not all pills are created equal, so do a bit of research and ask your vet for advice.
