    Cost scale seems to increase in this order( I could be wrong.):

    Advantix 2, Nexguard , Bravecto, Seresto

    Revolution does not control deer ticks - only dog ticks.
    Sharon you're quite correct about costs, I find though they can be all over the map depending where you get them.
    Seresto collars currently are $42 a piece , good for 7-8 months. If you can find Preventic collars you can get them for about $25 per a two pck. This is USA dollars,
    Most of the training groups in the south employ this method and I am yet to hear a poor review.

    We're trying Bravecto for the first time this year just because it was included in the Spring Wellness Clinic at the Vets this is year. It didn't cost us near that much or I wouldn't have switched from buying Liberty 50 at the TSC in NY state.

    Liberty 50 (permethrin) gives the dogs excellent coverage for 6 months for about $40 CDN.

    The late season finds me down around Long Point which is tick central. Not a single tick last year.
    Coming from Sharon and you who are both London area and a much heavier tick area your endorsement can't be ignored. I will look into Nexgaurd. Topical are a pain to apply.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    I just checked the Seresto active ingredient list and how it works. I do not remember reading last year that it actually repels ticks. I thought someone mentioned on last years thread that ticks will go on the dog but eventually die from the active ingredient. My concern at the time was the dog coming back into the house with ticks on him may jump onto family members.

    Guess we all would have that concern about ticks leaving a dog once in the house.

    What is Seresto used for:
    Seresto is an effective alternative to topical flea and tick control. It is an innovative new flea and ticks collar that releases continuous active ingredients for 8 months, ensuring your pet is protected against harmful conditions that fleas and ticks can transmit. Seresto kills existing fleas on dogs in 24 hours, and reinfesting fleas within 2 hours with protection against further infestations lasting eight months. Ticks already on your pet prior to treatment may not be killed immediately and may remain visible and attached. The prevention of infestations with new ticks starts within 48 hours after application of the collar. Seresto kills lice on dogs for one month, and aids in the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange.

    What I can tell you is what I see on almost all the dogs who are south for winter training. Seresto has become the choice of almost all of them. we have several Vets who actually come to the training groups on a regular basis. Everything from soft tissue issues to preventative maintenance. Vets like Dr Jennel Appelle from Tallahaisse who specialize in this all support the use of seresto collars.
    I had 2 trips to the hospital a number of years ago with stage one lymes and a pretty bulls-eye, we have had no repeats of this since using the collars.
    Not sure everyone would like a collar, maybe the 'pill' is the easiest but they are way cleaner than using the topicals and sistemics have never been my first choice.
    Lets hope it's not a bad year for ticks!

    Is the Seresto collar available here in Canada and if so where? Thanks for the info, bear season is about to start and I'd like to give it a try...

    I really like the idea of those Seresto collars. Are they available in Canada without having to go to a vet for an unneeded examination? For $50 that's cheap protection for 8 months worth.
    Are any of these online sources like CanadaVet or Canadapetcare.com reputable? Tks

    Cheers

    I believe I saw them listed on Canada Vet. We always get ours in the south. I did check with the Bayer Canada rep last spring and she said they were awaiting approval and it should have come in.
    Perhaps Cass will comment, I believe he ordered his for delivery in Ontario.

    N exams needed before buying flea/tick products at the vet. Blood test only needed for heartworm products ( June), because if your dog already has some heartworm, the full product can kill the dog.

    I use Heartguard in early June .
