A Beginners Guide To Pets

Different Types of Flea and Tick Medication Two of the most effective flea and tick medication are both Topical and Oral Medicines. When you use topical mediation, it is not something that your pet takes in but is usually applied directly on your pet’s skin which you are required to do monthly. This topical medication is usually applied between the shoulder blades or at the base of the neck. It contains ingredients that repel and kill fleas and ticks on the spot and the reason why it is called “spot-on”. It is effective in a sense that it is a preventive measure to keep fleas and tick from even residing in your dog’s fur -unlike oral medicines where fleas and ticks has to bite first before they are poisoned. Both contains ingredients that slowly repel but topical medicine ,upon naturally spreading on the entire body of your dog through the pet’s natural oil on its hair, are then embedded into the skin pores of your dog. This deposited chemical is then slowly release over a month’s time. Even after applying topical mediation, dogs can still swim and bathe since the chemical is hidden underneath the skin and it is also water-resistant. Spot on products are the most commonly used products to control that it even prevents fleas and ticks from even coming close to your dog that causes discomfort and to a large extent -skin irritation. Oral medicine is also effective in preventing fleas and ticks to thrive in a dog’s coat but it gives the dog much more benefit since it can also prevent parasites living inside your dog’s body. IN combination with other medication, oral medicine also helps prevent heartworm, roundworm, hookworm, and whipworms.

Dips can be another option where your dog is literally immersed in the dip and then the product is allowed to dry on the skin. It should be noted though not to use them too frequently as this also repels the natural oil found in the fur of your dog to dry up. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions of use and disposal for whatever method you choose to use. Also keep in mind that along with keeping your pet free from flea and ticks, it is also important to eliminate flea and ticks from the pet’s immediate environment. Carpet powder, spray, and forgers can be used to do this. You can use forgers outdoors since they are very effective and they are also very effective in highly flea infested areas.
