Will using shampoos negate the effectiveness of my flea and tick control?
Maybe. We recommend you use shampoos specifically designed for use with flea and tick products. [ Back to Top ]

What can I use to control an existing flea problem?
For an existing flea problem, keep in mind that it is essential to treat both your dog and his environment. We recommend using a product that contains both an adulticide to kill ticks and adult fleas, plus an IGR to prevent immature fleas from developing. An excellent choice to use on your dog would be Frontline Plus. To take care of fleas and ticks inside your house, we recommend Dog Bio Spot Home Protection Kit.

Can I use dog flea and ticks products on cats?
No! Ingredients in many flea products can be harmful or fatal to your cat, like permethrin. Products containing this, as well as other ingredients at higher concentrations and labeled "for dogs only" should NEVER be used on cats. Cats have a very sensitive metabolism, so using these products on cats or even allowing your cat close contact with a dog that has been recently treated should be avoided. Although their margin of safety is very high for dogs, this is not true for cats. Many flea & tick product options are available for cats.
