Flea Drops for Dogs: Topical Flea and Tick Treatment
Find an effective solution to rid your canine of harmful pests. Whether you’re being proactive or need to treat a flaring infestation, flea drops for dogs provide immediate relief. These oil-based treatments are applied directly to your pet’s skin instead of feeding them a pill or having them injected. To prepare, get your furry pal in a calm state so you can part their fur. Target the area between your pet’s shoulder blades and work your way down their back for complete coverage.
Flea drops for dogs help eliminate pests with a variety of active ingredients. Imidacloprid is a powerful insecticide found in Advantix and Advantage flea treatments. It works by attacking the central nervous system of insects for long-lasting effects. In some products, permethrin works in tandem with imidacloprid to repel and kill other pests including mosquitos, lice, and ticks. If you live in a multi-pet household it’s important to note that permethrin is highly toxic to cats. It’s recommended that you separate pets for a minimum of 24 hours when administering this specific topical flea treatment for dogs.
Fipronil, another proven active ingredient, eliminates pests through contact and ingestion. It’s a low hazard to humans and pets but acts as a slow-acting poison to insects allowing for the poison to spread. Products like Frontline Plus for dogs employ this ingredient along with methoprene which targets flies, moths, beetles and other insects.
Most topical flea treatments for dogs provide up to 30 days of continuous protection. If you want flea drops that also repel mosquitos and flies, examine the active ingredients. Packaging details highlight this information along with the proper dosage, weight, and age of pets that each product treats.
