We currently use Frontline flea and tick medication on our dog. Since the medication is applied by spreading his back fur, we have concerns that our children (2 under two years of age) may be exposed to the medication (when they pet him or he rolls on the ground). Is there an alternative medication for fleas/ticks (especially ticks) that can be taken by pill or another safe method?
I do not know of an alternative oral medication for ticks but you may want to try a tick collor. An alternative oral medication for fleas would be Program or Sentinal(sentinal also prevents heartworm and intestinal parasites). Thanks, vetcarerx vet team
