We are old school, but still use, and are totally happy with Program and Capstar (as necessary) Look them up, the generics are not expensive and there is no poison, just life cycle inhibitors for the fleas. With very short haired dogs, we can see a tick if one gets on them immediately. In the last 3 years, we have had 3 ticks. We are moving this winter, still on Playa la Ropa, so we'll play it by ear.

They also swim daily, so anything topical won't last. Contacted several manufacturers and they admitted that "waterproof" doesn't mean daily swimming.

Heartworms, we purchase the liquid and dose both dogs monthly. We do not have them checked annually for heart worms because they have both been on the preventative liquid since they were 3 months old. They are now 2 and 7, so all is well. We do not treat the cat for heartworms.

I'll share my source for the liquid if you'd like.
