Fleas are small insects that can easily jump onto your dog or cat from carriers in close range. Your pet is most likely to come in contact with fleas through exposure from other animals, but they are generally no larger than a sesame seed, so you may not know your pet is infested until they begin scratching. At that point, the adult fleas will have likely already laid eggs on your pet or in your home.
Fleas can easily jump onto your dog or cat from carriers in close range or by disturbing unhatched eggs that an infected animal has left in your yard or at the park. Fleas can lay hundreds of eggs infesting your pet and your household.
Outdoor animals that carry fleas include mice, birds, squirrels, skunks, opossums, rabbits, deer, raccoons, and foxes.
Credelio kills adult fleas, treats flea infestations, and treats and controls tick infestations in dogs and puppies 8 weeks or older and 4.4 pounds or heavier. Give every 30 days.

Always read the included instructions and speak to your vet before administering medications.
Vectra 3D - Topical (Canine & Feline)
Vectra 3D is a topical medication that should be applied every 30 days. Topical medications are best used on animals that will sit still during application and can be kept calm while the medication dries.

Vectra 3D for cats kills fleas and prevents flea infestations. Apply every 30 days.
Flea bites will be frequent and irritating to your dog, so their behavior is likely to change. Your pet will probably be a bit restless and scratch, lick or chew more than normal. You will be able to see the adult fleas with the naked eye, but they jump quickly. A flea comb can help you determine if fleas are hiding in your pet’s coat. You can also check for flea dirt (flea feces) in your pet’s fur.
If you suspect that your pet has been infested with fleas, contact your veterinarian for treatment recommendations. In addition to treating your pet, you will need to thoroughly clean your house to rid it of flea eggs, larvae and pupae that may be left.
Consult your veterinarian for treatment options that are right for your pet.
Bravecto for dogs is the only oral product that offers 12 weeks of continuous protection against fleas in one chew. The tasty chew also protects against ticks.
Sentinel Spectrum prevents heartworm disease and controls fleas. The tasty chews also treat and control roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms. Give every 30 days. Sentinel prevents flea eggs from hatching, but does not help treat adult flea infestations. We recommend pairing Sentinel with a flea preventative that also kills adult fleas.
