Banner - Fleas and ticks bite, we'll help you bite back.

There are all kinds of products on the market for flea & tick prevention: once-a-month topicals, sprays, collars, shampoos, dips, and flea combs; enough to make your head spin and leave you asking, “Where do I start?” On this page, you'll find information on the many different types of flea and tick preventatives available to you, and which are our favorites.

What Is the Best Flea & Tick Prevention For Dogs and Cats?

There are all kinds of products on the market for flea & tick prevention. Topical flea & tick treatments, sprays, collars, shampoos, and chewables are all great ways to treat and prevent fleas & ticks, but which one should you chose? We've broken down each down type of flea & tick treatment for dogs and cats below to help you decide which one is right for you and your pet.

Topical Flea Prevention Demonstration

Topical Flea & Tick Treament

  • Topical flea & tick treatments are applied to a small area on your pet’s neck once a month.
  • Not only do topical treatments kill pests, they also repel them.
  • Petlock Max for Dogs kills fleas and ticks on contact and is an affordable, effective, long-term pest preventative. For cats, Petlock II kills and controls all flea life stages by using a waterproof, fragrance free formula.
  • Products such as Advantage II and K9 Advantix use an ingredient that employs the natural oils on your pet’s skin and coat to spread the active ingredients, covering their entire body.
Seresto Flea Tick Collars Waterproof

Flea & Tick Collars

  • The #1 trusted flea collar at Hollywood Feed is the Seresto Flea & Tick Collar .
  • The Seresto collar is effective for up to 8 months even after getting wet.
  • Seresto collars repel fleas and ticks and protect your pet from head to toe.
  • Seresto infuses active ingredients into the plastic during production, most others are dipped or powdered on the collar and don’t protect the entire pet or last very long.
Ingestible Flea Treatment for Dogs and cats

Ingestible Flea Treatment

  • Ingestibles do not repel pests.
  • Your pet must ingest the product, which then travels through their bloodstream, making their blood poisonous to fleas and ticks.
  • A flea or tick must bite the dog to die.
  • In the case of a sudden flea infestation on dogs and cats, CAPSTAR oral tablets are a great option. One tablet is effective for 24 hours and starts killing any fleas on your pet within thirty minutes.
  • If your dog cannot use tablets or prefers chewables for a quick short term flea treatment, Advantus is a good choice. One chewable is effective for 24 hours and starts to kill any fleas that are currently on your pet within one hour.
Wondercide Flea and Tick Spray

Flea & Tick Spray

  • Flea sprays should be sprayed directly onto your pet.
  • Flea and tick sprays should be reapplied more frequently than topical flea treatment and may wash off more easily.
  • Kin + Kind offers good plant-based flea and tick sprays that repell fleas, ticks, and other pests from your cats and dogs. With lemongrass and lavender scents, these sprays leave your pet smelling fresh too.
  • If you need more natural flea and tick spray, Wondercide is a great all-natural flea and tick spray that uses cedar oil to repeal fleas, ticks, and other insects. You can use Wondercide on your pets and home!
Flea and tick Shampoo

Flea & Tick Shampoos

  • Shampoos are often effective at removing fleas and ticks that a dog or cat currently has on her, but usually have no residual effects past 24-48 hours.
  • Work the shampoo into a lather over your dog’s entire body, using caution around her eyes and ears, and leave on for the recommended amount of time before rinsing.
  • With cats, be sure to wrap your cat in a towel after their bath. Pay close attention to the base of the tail as fleas like to hide there.
Best Natural Flea and Tick Treatment

Natural Flea & Tick Prevention

  • Natural flea and tick prevention for dogs and cats kills pests without the use of chemicals.
  • All-natural flea and tick control requires more frequent use to effectively repel pests.
  • Wondercide flea and tick sprays are 100% naturally derived, safe around children, and gentle enough to use several times a week on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.
Best Flea and Tick Yard Treatment

Flea & Tick Yard Treatment

  • Fleas visible on your dog or cat make up only about 5% of the flea life cycle. The rest in your home or yard consist of flea larva and eggs.
  • To prevent or treat a flea or tick infestation, treating your yard during flea and tick season is essential.
  • For all-natural flea and tick yard treatment, Wondercide Yard and Garden Spray uses cedar to kill pests on contact.
