Advantages of Flea and Tick Pills for Your Dogs

People the world over say it is a soothing experience when they demonstrate affection towards their pet. Several studies performed have verified this. But, certainly, you would agree that it is a bit tough watching our pet scratching his fur all the time because of the itchiness caused by ticks and fleas.

Man’s love for pets has paved the way for 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.

As per popular belief, these products work better 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

In most cases, flea and tick pills for dogs taste like beef, which makes administering them so much easier, both for the pet and the pet owner. As you’d probably guess, the pills are simply mixed together with the dog’s meal.

Safety

Flea and tick pills for dogs are absolutely safe that they can be given even to fourteen-week-old puppies. Additionally, these products considered a ‘reduced-risk pesticide,’ meaning they are extremely toxic to those little critters but very safe for your dog.

Convenience

No need for you to isolate your pet while being treated. You can play with him as usual, whether or not you have given him 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 very convenient indeed for people who are too busy and have no time to apply ointments, lotions, powder or whatever to their pets.

Veterinarians usually recommend pills for dogs having sensitive skin as they do not agitate the skin and may not even touch it. As long as you choose the right product, you will get the solution you want. Not all pills are made equal, so do your research and ask your vet for tips.
