Combiva II has the same active ingredients (imidacloprid / pyriproxyfen) as Advantage II.*

Why does Dr. Donald Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian, recommend Combiva II?

Because Combiva II:

  • Effectively kills adult fleas and prevents further re-infestation
  • Kills re-infesting fleas within 2 hours
  • Breaks the flea life cycle and prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into adult fleas
  • Provides effective once a month flea protection
  • Is waterproof after application
  • Is an affordable option for topical flea control

*Combiva II is not manufactured by Bayer. Advantage is a registered trademark of Bayer.

Can we all agree that ticks are disgusting? Yes? Good!

Now, let’s talk about how to remove ticks from your pet. There are right ways and wrong ways to remove ticks. You’re going to want to do it the right way.

Do This to Remove Ticks:

  • Check for and remove ticks as soon as possible, to help prevent the transmission of disease.
  • Wear gloves, to avoid transmission of disease from the tick.
  • Use tweezers or a tick removal device to do the job.
  • Grasp the tick firmly, as close to the pet’s skin as possible, and pull back slowly and steadily.
  • Clean the area with soap and water after the tick has been removed.
  • Place the tick (or ticks) in a small container and bring it to your pet’s doctor for examination. Different ticks carry different diseases, so tick identification is an important part of treatment.

…But Don’t Do That:

  • Don’t try burning or heating up the tick. You are more likely to injure your pet this way.
  • Don’t try to “smother” the tick with petroleum jelly or fingernail polish. It’s a time-waster, and time is critical in preventing the transmission of tick-borne diseases.
  • Don’t crush or yank the tick, and don’t twist it. Doing so could increase your pet’s risk of exposure to disease.
  • Don’t fret about not removing the mouthparts. Some ticks have very long mouthparts that are cemented in place for the feeding. It’s not worth the hassle of going in after them, according to Dr. Glen Needham, an expert on ticks who recently spoke on the subject with Norfolk veterinarians.
