Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I have been purchasing this brand for over a year now, and it works wonderfully. My 1 year old puppy doesn't like to eat it, but when I crush it up into peanut butter it'll be gobbled right up! My 8 year old lab does enjoy the taste, however, and eats it whole! Just like some dogs like soft, chewy treats and others do not. Don't bash the homemade treat when your dog simply doesn't like the texture/taste, when others might! It's unrealistic for every dog to like the taste of the same product. Overall, the product works so well. I never see any fleas or ticks on my dogs with this medication, and I live in the deep neck of the woods! Just crush up the tablet and feed it to them in wet dog food or peanut butter and it will be fine :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love how it works! Bought this from my vet for my Dogue de Bordeaux and love how it works! It definitely lasts longer than 4 weeks. 2 months after my pup was given the first dose, I was still finding dead ticks on her frequently. She has to be coaxed to eat it, but nothing is perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I usually use comfortis for my dogs. But one of mine is on seizure meds and couldn't take anything but this. I am completely satisfied. I gave it to him yesterday and today no fleas. He has allergies because of these pests and always scratching till he bleeds and be was losing his hair. Couldn't sleep because he was miserable. Baths would help but i was giving so many that he caught a cold . So when i took him to his vet this iscwhat he recommended . . Will be ordering more . And i would totally recommend this 100%.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Other flea & tick products are better We have two dogs and both of them refuse to eat these chewable tablets. Our Frenchie will eat anything (literally!) and he won't touch this. We also use another product from this company and have the same issue. Not worth the hassle when there are so many other products on the market. We won't be spending any more $ on products from this company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from -* if possible Used this for over 1 year with my lab. He refused to eat it, and has fleas. Have a 5 month old mini golden doodle and she has fleas like crazy. Poor product, human aspect and dog aspect. Both lab (for 1 year) and golden doodle (2 months) refuse to take it. Even after disguising with cheese, sour cream, and veterinarian recommend "pill pouches"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just does not work at all. I was so happy to bring this home to give to my 2 Boston Terrier pups because they both have been miserable from recently getting fleas. My vet stopped carrying Bravecto (which worked every single time) and offered me this stuff, saying that it was just as effective. It was exactly 6 hours ago that they took their doses and there are just as many live fleas on them as there were last night. Although this was cheaper, it just made the next doses of Bravecto even more expensive by adding the cost of this placebo. Save yourselves the money and buy something that's rated well and that actually kills fleas. I promise you, I don't have time to write reviews, but I will to help save a fellow dog lover some money. It's already expensive enough to properly care for them, so it's well worth my time if it's to help you save your hard-earned money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeah!!! I was so frustrated because I was using the Frontline Topical and it was no longer working. My fur baby was so miserable and scratching so much until his hair started falling out. He’s a labradoodle so he doesn’t shed. I kept taking him to the vet and she kept giving him steroid shots And prednisone for flee allergies. I took him to his other doctor to get a new prescription for the Heartguard Plus and she recommended Credelio. At first I said no because I had never heard of it so I was given NexGuard. I read the box and saw it was made by Frontline and said never mind, I’ll try the Credelio. I figured since the topical was no longer working, there’s no need to try anything else they made. I gave him the Credelio w/peanut butter because he wouldn’t chew it otherwise because he didn’t like it and kept spitting it out. Needless to say he was able to sleep through the night and I gave him a good bath the next day and rubbed him down with coconut oil. He resting easy and no more scratching. Cons It’s a bit pricey and doesn’t taste good to dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very fast! My son bought 4 puppies from a lady because he felt sorry for them they were ate up with fleas and worms.. they have sores on the top of their head from the fleas. I took one pill of this flea Med broken into four quarters gave a quarter to each puppy and now they don't have a single flea. In an hour later. It works. I give this to my Anatolian shepherd dogs and an English lab.. and an Australian Shepherd . BONUS it lasts about six weeks or more.

Does it have to be chewed. I got my pup to just swallow it whole. Will it still work?

Asked by: Danas
Yes. As long as your furry baby ingests the entire chew, the medication will be effective.
