3. Oral Flea and Tick Preventatives
Oral flea and tick medications usually come in the form of pills, tablets or chewables. These medications are then absorbed and secreted into the sebaceous glands and deliver the neurotoxic ingredients to the parasites.
Oral medications are great alternative for pets owners that don’t want to use collars or spot-ons. Most products are flavored, so there is often little issue with animals refusing the medication. However, you can always hide the medication in another food product, too. Oral medications are also preferred by some pet owners because they do not need to be isolated from other pets or children after administration.
