Prevention is about peace of mind – the kind that comes from knowing that you are proactively monitoring the health and wellness of the pets you love. Banfield would love to partner with you in the ongoing care of your pet.

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.
First Shield Trio is effective against all species of ticks. The active ingredients are designed to repel and kill all species of ticks. In some cases, a tick may get onto the pet, and in this case the First Shield Trio kills with contact so it should prevent them from attaching. It is a very good product that works well for many pets.
Your veterinarian can talk to you more about the different types of tick prevention and which product is best for your pet. The American dog tick and the wood tick are different species of ticks. These ticks can both be dangerous and are capable of transmitting diseases, including Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, to your pet.
