At the Adobe Pet Hospital we don’t treat fleas – we prevent them! We have selected only the most effective and safest products available. Flea prevention is tailored to your pet’s specific exposure and lifestyle. It is important to note that certain over-the-counter topical products can be highly toxic.
For dogs we recommend Sentinel, a simple once-a-month chewable pill that not only prevents fleas but de-worms your dog for roundworms, hookworms (contagious to people) and whipworms and prevents heartworm disease as well! Sentinel®, combined with an occasional Capstar® tablet (Capstar® kills any flea within 20 minutes) is generally all that is needed to keep you pet and home flea free and with NO toxicity or topical mess.
For cats, we recommend Revolution® which not only protects against fleas, but also protects against heartworms, roundworms and ear mites.
