    Just curious as to what you protect your dog with against fleas, lung worm, ticks etc.

    We usually use advocate on Ozzy and Harley, Charlie arrived with frontline.
    We noticed the seresto flea and tick collars in our vets and wondered whether they are any good?

    Also heard frontline isn't too good for dogs. :confused:

    For fleas and ticks I give garlic and apple cider vinegar in their food, and use a tea tree grooming spray on their coats in the summer - I've never used a chemical flea prep, we live right out in the sticks and they've never had fleas!

    I worm four times a year, alternating between Drontal, Panacur, Cestem and Plerion, which cover the vast majority of worms.

    I also use acv and garlic. Never have and never will use spot on treatments. For worms I use Wormcount Home Page and treat as needed
