Good morning, we used Revolution for many years and now we are told that Bravecto (combine with Heartguard for heartworm) is better. I use a mixture of essential oils as an insect repellent (well I have to admit that sometimes we forget to spray the dogs …) but we need something for ticks – the number keeps growing year after year and since we mostly walk in wooded areas we need to protect our dogs. They do bring back ticks on a weekly basis. What is your opinion – stick with Revolution or change for the combination of Bravecto and Heartguard ? IS it true that Bravecto is good for only 8 weeks for some kind of ticks and good for 12 weeks for others ? I am confused !
Where to Buy VetIQ VetGuard Plus Flea & Tick For Dogs | VetIQ
I have two dogs one a female Alaskan Malamute and a Samoyed – I used to treat them with Advocate and Advantix – Phoenix (samoyed) had a tick at 12 weeks of age that nearly killed him – the tick was dead in his neck and the vet advised that it was lucky I had treated him with that – he somehow got three more ticks (the area is awful for ticks) but it was touch and go he was on a drip and it was a couple of weeks before he came good. I heard about Nexguard and decided to try it – have been using this on both dogs without out any obvious reaction but worry sometimes about the samoyed – he had blood in his urine and had to have his gentleman’s operation – vet said this would fix it – which appears to have happened. I have since been made aware that samoyeds can have renal problems – but who far everything good. I would not try Bravecto – something tells me that if it is strong enough to last 3 months it must have very strong chemicals in it – which puts me off. I will stick to the Nexguard and just keep monitoring. Both dogs seem to have a lot of energy and not efffected fin this regard.
