My vet was very enthusiastic about these collars as we have had a very bad tick season in NH. She had switched her dogs from Frontline to these collars. Frontline had been failing in my opinion also so bought a collar. My cairn terrier started scratching his neck within 2 days of wearing it…so removed it & called to enquire if any other dogs had a similar reaction. The answer was no & to give it another try….same thing. The collar is off permanently now. My question is…has anyone else out there had this experience & can anyone recommend something for tick prevention that actually works! Thanks so much for any help!
Nexgard is an tasty oral square chew. Once a month. I flea/tick comb them once in awhile, nothing. Buy online, it’s cheaper.
Where are you in NH? I’m in Gilford. Anyway, I bought collars from HolisticFamilyandPet dot com (they’re out of MA); no ticks! We had some before the collars but not since.
I live in MA, but my dogs train all over the NE area and NJ as well and I have had great, and I mean great success with Nexgard. I find dead ticks if any and you don’t need to worry about the getting wet part at all since my dogs are big swimmers. I would highly recommend this product – have been using it for about a year now. I also heard that Bravecto is good too and I think it lasts a longer period of time but I’m not switching from Nexgard – it is almost too good to be true! Sorry to hear about the collar reaction. I know several people that use them and love them with no problems. My dogs sleep with me so I don’t like to have the chemicals on the collars around their necks – and I don’t really like the collar method in general – seems like a throwback to when that was all we had in the arsenal to protect our animals. I do think they are new and improved though. Good luck and hope your baby feels better!
I like Nexgard as well and my dog has not had a reaction to it. It works very very well.
Thank you all so much for this feed back & so quickly!!! I am in western NH, small town some miles from Keene. I also sleep w/my dog so the collar thing was a little disconcerting. Nextgard sounds like a really good product so will definitely look at it. Thank you all again!
the collars I posted are completely safe, no small, no oil.
Thank you InkedMarie…will check thos
