Can I give my dog Bravecto and Sentinel at the same time?

With Sentinel and Bravecto or any other combination of two separate FDA regulated medications, we cannot recommend using them together. They have not been tested and proven safe and effective together to the FDA. Both products are safe for dogs as well as safe for use in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs.

Why does my dog still have fleas after using Frontline?

A. The active ingredient in FRONTLINE (fipronil) kills fleas by affecting their nervous system, making them hyperactive before dying. These dying fleas often rise to the top of your pet’s haircoat, so the presence of visible fleas after treating your pet, is a sign that the product is working.

Why does my dog keep getting fleas even after treatment?

Not treating often enough Fleas go through a life cycle of egg, larvae, pupae and adult. Most flea treatments just kill adult fleas, but fleas can continue to emerge for months after you think an infestation has ended. When a newly emerged female flea finds a host, she can lay eggs within one day.
