In Florida, it's an all-year proposition, without question.

It used to be mostly the late spring into fall. Now it seems the flea season gets longer. This year I saw fleas in February, so I have been using it since then.

We plan to use it all year, unless January or February is very snowy. My vet said to use it at all times unless we have snow. When we had a mild week of weather last winter, she had a bunch of dogs come in with fleas. We've already seen fleas this summer since we've had Duncan and I have no desire to take any chances with them.

Living in California, we have to use flea medication all year. What flea medication is everyone using?

I do it all year. If the temperature warms up even for a few days in the Winter, it seems the ticks come out. I was using the k9 advatix for years but I think my guys are developing an allergy to it. I'm switching to frontline next month.

In Texas it's a must all year. Toby gets Advantix and Heartguard.

What kind of flea/tick preventative does everyone here use?
Do you get the ones dispensed at the vet (like Frontline)??
Or has anyone used the cheaper kinds you can find at stores like Walmart?
We currently use Frontline, but just wondering if the Frontline is worth the extra money...
