    I just started a new oral med called Credelio, for fleas and ticks. It is working incredibly well. I don't like using more chemicals on them than I have to so they will only be on this until the fall when the ticks die off. My Faith had tick paralysis from a tick a few weeks ago and it scared me badly enough to start them all on this, which my vet recommended as very safe. Ally's allergies were environmental, not food or fleas, so every fall/winter she was itching like crazy.

    I have never heard of this either - maybe because

    - now when ticks have become so dangerous and must not sit long after they bite

    -I would probably think a little bit about this - "For ticks the effect occurs within 48 hours"

    I will still prefer a product that works without ticks have to bite first

    I though the ticks stay on and I would see them. I do not think I have any ticks around my house. What would a tick vs flea bite look like? the poor thing lost all her hair above her tail from chewing so much.

    You can hardly see a flea bite, usually cats fleas most dogs are extremely sensitive to and one bite is enough to make life unbearable for your furfriend and it is often about the tail they chewing - thought absolutely you should visit your vet.

    I took my dogs all to the vet yesterday and they are all on a new flea medicine. Its a new chewable tablet. It is supposed to prevent fleas. However do not fleas have to bite before the medicine works? He also said that it sounds like they have horrible seasonal allergies as well.
