Re: flea and tick meds
Good question. I won't use any systemic flea meds yet. They haven't been studied long enough, and have been proving difficult to manage in some breeds, especially collies, malinois, and welsh corgies. Use Frontline Plus, make sure you keep it applied every thirty days, and go from there. Demodex is a sign that his immune system is a bit fragile, so that doubles the idea to use Frontline plus. Also look into any holistic/homeopathic immune boosters that you may feel comfortable using.
