Zodiac is also a flea product to be avoided...

Biospot is the old school chemical. It is absorbed into the system and sent through the liver. That's why it' not good even if it works.


I use frontline+ or whatever it's called. The reason frontline and anvantix are better is because it only get's into the skin and does not get processed through the liver.

I think I use heartgard for heartworm protection.

I still think brewers yeast/ garlic tabs are great for flea protection.

Do you put all those together in a spray bottle?

Mine are on frontline but Im finding that they reinfest when they go out and are still scratching. Ive used lemon water in the past which works great but its time consuming.

Frontline +. Knock on wood- haven't found any ticks.
Thanks ME for the tip about the spray with the essential oils- will use for mosquitoes because I think I've seen a couple skeeter bites on her belly
