Best Flea and Tick Treatments For Your Pet (With User Reviews!)

Dog on Beach

Spring is here and that means only one thing: Outdoor fun!

As the weather gets warmer, long walks in the park with your pet might seem like the best way to spend the spring and summer days. But, for your furry friend, this might mean exposure to pesky fleas and ticks.

Fleas and ticks are a common problem for pets and potentially, for your whole family. These insects feed on your pet’s blood and can cause health problems ranging from allergic reactions to tick-borne illnesses. Once your pet has been infected, they can infect home furniture such as your couch, bed, rug and other common surfaces.

The best way to prevent a flea or tick infestation is to get your pet started on a monthly treatment. From Bravecto to Nexgard, we’ll compare each flea and tick treatment including price range, effectiveness, user reviews and more to help you make the best decision for you and your pet.

What Customers Are Saying

“The product works great!! Been having a terrible flea infestation on my dog, probably because our backyard is adjacent to a huge canyon where coyotes and rabbits are and the weather in San Diego is just perfect for fleas to live. I  used to use Comfortis and it seemed to work before, but I tried changing to PetArmor from Costco because it was cheaper and was easier to get because I didn’t need to go to the vet for a Rx. PetArmor didn’t work, then I tried FrontLine, but that didn’t do anything and I had enough of having my dog suffer all summer and fleas infesting the house so I tried Comfortis again and it worked like a charm. She stopped scratching, she stopped smelling, her skin irritations went away. TL;DR, Comfortis is awesome and way better than topical treatments.”- Erickson

“It is perfect for us, our dog has been taking it for a few years and she is flea free… so far no other complication from it.. it is basically the only thing that worked for her. we are very pleased with the results.”- Julianne

“We found out around 4 years ag our dog Bella is allergic to fleas so we started her on COMFORTIS and works! Keeps the fleas off her and she doesn’t scratch herself to death! Before starting her on COMFORTIC she’d scratch huge sores all over and bites! She looked horrible! But now she is the picture of health!”- Kim
