How to Control Ticks if Your Dog Uses Sentinel
Sentinel is one of the most comprehensive pet medications around, as it protects your dog from heartworm disease, helps control fleas, and treats roundworm, hookworm and whipworm. While Sentinel is a great choice, Sentinel does not treat ticks. Because ticks can transmit serious diseases, if you live in an area with ticks, it is also important to use a product to control ticks in addition to using Sentinel. What pet medication should your dog use along with Sentinel?
Many people choose Sentinel because they prefer not to use a topical treatment, such as Frontline, to treat fleas on their dog. If your dog uses Sentinel, you may choose a collar such as the Preventic Amitraz Tick Collar to control ticks on your dog. The active ingredient in this tick collar is amitraz, which kills and detaches ticks for up to three months. The Preventic collar is effective against ticks including the American Dog Tick, the Brown Dog Tick, the Lone Star Tick, and the Deer Tick. Using a tick collar along with Sentinel will ensure your dog has comprehensive protection.
While it is certainly best to prevent ticks on your dog, should you find a tick on your dog, you can safely remove the tick with a product such as Arctick for Pets. This is a spray which freezes and kills ticks instantly. Arctick for Pets is safe, effective and environmentally friendly.
