Frontline Alternatives?

Anyone know of a dependable flea and tick products aside from Frontline? I use this routinely and was just informed in November that my Aussie (1 year old) has Lymes disease. I guess I was under the impression that if this was given to the dog monthly they could not catch Lymes Disease.

It has been 2 months and I can see some progress but the cold is hard on his joints and this is hard to see for such a young dog. He was completely lame with a fever for 2 days until his meds kicked in.

Thanks for the info,

I prefer Revolution. It does all the same things plus more. A little more expensive and must be purchased from a Vet.

We use K9Advantix II (2), which we get from our vet.

Heartworm and Flea medication

We use Trifexis. It is a oral preventative. Cheaper than buying our original Inteceptor and Comfortis. We love it.

Note from Anton: Other people's dogs have had severe symptoms after taking Trifexis. Here's the link to the page about Trifexis.

Tick prevention

Our vet recommended "Preventic" It is suppose to prevent the tick from biting the dog in the first place. Therefore it can't give them any diseases.
