Now that spring is here, so are the fleas and ticks. We know you love your pet and hate to see them itch and scratch. The best method for flea and tick prevention is to start early and be consistent. There are many options when it comes to flea and tick prevention. At Kirk Veterinary Service we are dedicated to finding what works best for you and your pet.
The newest in flea and tick prevention is Nexgard. Nexgard is a flea and tick prevention “treat”. It is highly desirable and easy to give which makes it a win-win for pet owners. This prevention is given once a month and is only $18.50 no matter the size of your pet. The current sale on Nexgard is buy 6 get 1 free! You can also get a $50 rebate if you buy 6 months of Nexgard and a 12 months’ supply of Heartgard. That is an easy way to take care of it all in 1 stop!
The only repellent on the market that repels and kills fleas, ticks and mosquitos is Vectra 3D. This is a monthly topical that is available for your dog. If you have a dog that loves to play outside this might be the product for you! Currently there are 2 specials; buy 3 get 1 free, and buy 6 get 3 free and be put in a drawing for a free Lyme vaccine (available thru April 30th)! We also carry Vectra for cats & kittens. This is a monthly topical prevention for your feline friend. Vectra for cats & Kittens kills fleas and prevents infestation.
If your choice of companion is a feline then we would recommend Revolution. Revolution is a topical medication that is applied once a month. Thankfully it is a small amount of liquid. This medication covers fleas, ear mites, heartworms and an intestinal de-worming every month. Whether your cat is inside, outside or both Revolution would be the choice for you.
We understand that some owners are not good at remembering to apply monthly flea and tick prevention for their pet. If this is you then we recommend the Seresto flea and tick collar. This is a flea and tick prevention that lasts for 8 months. The current sale is a $25 rebate with each collar.
