Parasite Prevention

Advantage Multi is a once-a-month, topical, parasite preventative for your dogs and cats.  It protects against heartworm infection, is indicated to kill adult fleas and treat flea infestations, as well as treat and control roundworm, hookworm infections.  It also is effective against whipworms in dogs and ear mites in cats.

Capstar works within minutes to kill adult fleas on your pet.  These parasites can not only cause your pet to feel uncomfortable, but they can also carry other illnesses or tapeworms.  Capstar is an orally administered tablet.  We give one of these tablets to every pet who checks into our facilities, in order to maintain a flea-free environment.

When applied to the skin between your pet's shoulder blades, Frontline Tritak starts killing fleas and ticks in just 5 minutes.
