Revolution uses Selamectin so no, it probably shouldn't be used either.

But revolution doesn't work all that well in dogs anyhow. Great for cats though. Shame they're not near as prone to HW lol.

My pup is on Interceptor and the Vet charges me 6.50 per pill. Sounds cheap enough. Does anyone pay more or less? I'm going to check online to see if I can save that way.

Should be cheaper than that. That's what we charge per pill. If they buy the box it's about 3-4 per pill.

We use Sentinel. http://www.ah.novartis.com/products/...sentinel.shtml

It's expensive, but it's broad-spectrum and made by a company that I trust. Sentinel is safe for Collies.

interceptor is cheaper. it is sentinel minus the flea "birth control" (doesn't kill fleas, just makes the adult ones sterile). same company, same everything else.

If you already use Advantage then sentinel is a waste of money.

But else wise it can be...decent flea control. Just as advantage won't kill the eggs, sentinel won't kill the adults. If you really wanted to you could use both for complete flea control on your animal.


Best flea control is to use an adult flea killer and then simple sanitation after that to kill eggs. Any eggs that do hatch will die on the host.

I thought the OP was asking about Heartworm preventative, not flea control. Sentinel wont help with Heartworm.

I thought the topic shifted from HW control to flea prevention?

Come on, people. Do some reading!

Indications

SENTINEL is an oral tablet for the prevention and control of flea populations, the prevention of heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) disease and the treatment and control of roundworms (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina), hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum) and whipworms (Trichuris vulpis) in dogs.

From the original link that I posted:
http://www.ah.novartis.com/products/...sentinel.shtml

Elegy,
I agree with you. If the flea preventative isn't desired, then Interceptor is a great choice.
http://www.ah.novartis.com/products/...erceptor.shtml

Both are safe for Collies. That was the original question in this thread.
