I have several dogs. I also live out in the country and among the pests to hamper my dogs happy life are fleas and ticks, deer ticks...the list goes on and on.
I use on my dogs a preventic flea collar which kills fleas, ticks, deer ticks and repels them away from the animal....Preventic is my choice.....my dogs have zero of the above....Also in addition to wearing this collar, which is religeously changed every two months, they use Frontline plus.....Hey, I love my dogs....now, the ticks do get on me, but not the dogs...fleas? What are they anyhow, I do not ever see them because of these two products. Also I keep my grass mowed short....Hope this helps
