Would love to know what others use for their dogs to keep them wormed and flea free?

Ask your question
  • I ask the vet on what is best for your breed of pet.

  • Don’t even bother with the ones sold in supermarkets!

    Your vet should be able to sell you worming tablets, but be very wary of products such as frontline of bravecto etc – there have been dogs suffer some very serious life threatening side effects from these products (google it and you will see what I mean)

  • yeah advantix is pretty good for your pet to use.

  • For worming, I use Purina TotalCare, available from your local Coles. For fleas, I give weekly baths during summer with a medicated shampoo. There’s also a spray I use that I can’t recall the name of. You spray it on and rub it in after they’ve dried from their bath.

  • Yeah might ask the vet for samples thank you

  • Maybe get some samples from your vet to trial?

  • We use sentinel spectrum. It’s a once a month tablet that does all intestinal worms and heartworm as well as fleas

  • We get our products from the vet.

  • You have to be quick indeed.

  • I use pinch me too but sometimes I get there too late and the samples are already gone :(

  • I’m also going to test a new product from pinchme (NexGard). Well, not me, my dog! LOL

  • I’m getting free samples from pinch me Australia lately.

  • For worming the chewable tablets and for worming the drops put behind the ears or on the back of the neck.

  • We use Advocate or Revolution. Let’s say that it depends on the price. Advocate is slightly more expensive.
