I have used Front Line plus for years and have been a fan. It always did a good job. Recently it doesn't seem to be working. I prefer either a pill or a topical type control method. If they make a collar that actually works and won't effect my kids I would consider. Please help any suggestions would be great.

Advanti. I used Frontline before and had a bad infestation that it didn't work on. I switched to advantix and it got rid of them

This collar straight up knocked dead the fleas on my dog when he got them. I bought it because it was recommended on this forum by others, including a veterinarian. I now recommend it.

Bravecto (oral flea and tick prevention) worked like a champ on my dog! Within a couple hours of giving it to her fleas were jumping ship and they haven't been back.

I can tell you this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CKCF4Y2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 does not repel ticks. I pulled 20 off of my dog after 1 day of hunting last weekend. They were dead, but they were still on there.

I put Bravecto on my dogs yesterday and this morning there were no fleas. Now if it will last as long as they say (90 days) then I'm a believer. It is expensive on the front end but worth it if it works as advertised.

Thank you all for the suggestion. My wife beat me in finding something. Our vet recommended nexgaurd chewables. As of now I'm pretty impressed. 3 hours after max ate it he was flea free. I have found some fleas on him after he goes out and plays in the yard with the kids and they are dead. So it works and now I have to go nuke the yard.

Thanks again.

Correction on my post. I gave my dogs the Bravecto chewables. I put a new kind of spot o the cats. Mine were covered even though I've been using Frontline.

Idk how much those pills cost, but I've been using Comfortis for a couple of years with great results. Cost $20/month down here.

We use Trifexis too. Incredible stuff. Anything on the dog is dead within an hour of eating the tab.

Trifexis does not kill or repel ticks. I see this repeated quite often on here - if your vet is telling you this your vet is wrong.

Comfortis does not kill ticks either. It only controls fleas. Comfortis (spinosad) is the flea control that is used in Trifexis.

Bravecto and Nexguard both prevent fleas AND ticks.
