• Hi, I have two wire haired dachshunds, one 4 years old, one 10 years old - both in good health, thank goodness. I need effective flea and tick medicine - but SAFE - i have an 11 month old son who loves to touch and kiss the dogs. Please recommend something safe and effective.

    Hi Cassandra,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The best flea and tick prevention for your individual pets will depend on a few different factors including your pets’ age, weight, breed, overall health, and their environment. Your local vet knows your pets and also the local area so they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
