Prevention Of Fleas. Over the past years, the control of fleas has grown immensely. In the market today, a wide range of fleas controlling products are available, and they range from pills to topical formulations. The various types can even confuse pet owners. In the mid 1990’s, program (Lufenuron) flea medicine was introduced. The need to control fleas led to the introduction of the medication which came in form of a pill. Although program medication had some successes, its method of action had a lot of limitation. The formulation worked by inhibiting Larvae from hatching. However, the adult fleas were not killed by this product. The the pet could only be fled after some time when the flea died a natural death. The next popular medication to be introduced was the sentinel which was made of both heartworm prevention and Lufenuron. Both program and sentinel medication, however, have not been able to efficiently control adult fleas. introduction of more effective medications has been experienced in the recent years. Flea controlling products that have recently been introduced in the market include Advantage, Revolution, and Frontline. The results a pet owner desires are the ones that determine what type of medicine he/she will buy. Revolution is a topical medication that is normally absorbed into the pet’s body. The medicine is effective in both cats and dogs. It is efficient in controlling fleas, ticks, and heart worm diseases. The other organisms that can be treated using revolution should be discussed with a veterinarian. The medication controls other parasites effectively. Guidance in applying the medication should be sought from an animal health practitional This makes it difficult to be obtained from online sources. It requires a veterinarian because they are the ones who conduct heartworm tests before making a prescription. After the test then a form is filled requesting for a revolution dosage. Another popular brand of flea medication is the Frontline Plus. The medications works well in both cats and dogs. The medication dosage also takes into consideration the weight of the pet. Frontline controls the fleas by killing them on contact. Eggs and larvae are neither spared by the medication. Water does not affect the effectiveness of the medicine. However, it becomes inefficient if the pet comes into contact with some types of shampoo. In order to ensure the medication is efficient even after bathing the pet, several things need to be taken into consideration. One of them is to consult with the veterinarian about a shampoo that will not strip of the Frontline medication. After bathing the pet, it should take 24 hours to apply the next medication. Waiting 24 hours allows oil on the skin of the pet to build up. Oil helps frontline medication spread efficiently on the skin.If You Read One Article About Dogs, Read This One
