From Our Vets
Probably one of the most confusing products to choose today is the appropriate topical flea medication for your pet. The market has been saturated in the last ten years with so many products that it is difficult for veterinary professionals to keep up with the many options. I have chosen to continue to use the best products available and have avoided their generic counterparts. I simply get too many negative reports from clients about the generic flea products to risk using them with my canine and feline patients.
One of the most reliable and effective flea medications is still the Bayer product, Advantage II. I rarely get complaints about application and effectiveness of the Advantage line of products. The most common comment is that Advantage II does not appear to last an entire month after application. Bayer has multiple products available, (Advantage Multi, Advantix, Advantage II), allowing you and your veterinarian to choose the best option for your pet.
