Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
just wish to share some comments about the flee and worm treatments. We live in the UK and, over the years, we always treated Oberon with drontal (every 3 months) and advocate pipette (monthly). But, since these do not cover for thick and other deseases common in mediterranean countries, when we travel in summer in south france and corsica we integrate with a second pipette of advantix and also a scalibor collar
now, our vet changed the suggested course of action and now they recomment brevecto (every 3 months) and milbemax (monthly). this will cover also the thick in summer, but they are both in pills. I understand the point that the pipette can wash out and they had several dogs affected by deseases because the pipette was not penetrating the skin on time (it rains a lot in UK).. still, I am a bit concerned in giving him a tick poison by mouth
we are in this new plan since a couple of months, and there are no side effects, so maybe is ok.... still: has anyone some thoughts and experiences on this ? I heard bad stories on milbemax but maybe is just that some dogs can be sensitive and matter of trial and errors? so far for us there are not visible effects. what shall we look for, in case??
