A Comprehensive Guide To Simparica Flea And Tick Medication

What Is Simparica for Dogs?

Fleas and ticks post a significant threat to your dog's health. While common, they are parasitic bugs that latch on to your dog's body and drink their blood. They can pass on many types of infections to your dog, and if the infestation is bad enough, they can even give your dog anemia. Simparica for dogs is a medication designed to prevent this.

You can use Simparica Flea and Tick Medication monthly to keep your dogs safe from these pesky parasites. This medicine protects your dog for 35 days, after which you can give your dog another dose. This is excellent for dogs who work a lot outdoors as you cannot control the outside environment.

Why Are Fleas and Ticks Bad for Dogs?

Fleas and ticks can pass on several different types of diseases. They can pass on these diseases to your pets and you and your family as well. Fleas multiply really quickly as they can say up to 50 eggs a day! Ticks can stay on your dog's body without anyone noticing for nearly a week.

Dogs can develop Flea Allergy Dermatitis, which is an allergy to the saliva of fleas. They can also transmit canine tapeworm or Dipylidium Caninim to other dogs, cats, and humans. If the flea has encountered any dangerous bacteria, it can pass that on to animals as well.

Ticks carry their own set of problems. The biggest fear with ticks is Lyme disease, which is an extremely dangerous and painful condition. They can also spread Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Colorado tick fever, Heartland virus, ehrlichiosis, and tularemia, among many others. Both people and dogs can be allergic to tick bites.

How Much of Simparica Should I Give My Dog?

Simparica Trio for dogs should be used at the dosage of 0.91.g per pound of weight or 2mg per kilo of bodyweight. Thus, a dog between 2.8 and 5.5 pounds should get one piece of 5mg Simparica chewables per month. A dog who is between 5.6 and 11 pounds gets one piece of 10mg Simparica chewables per month.

If your pet is between 11 and 22 pounds, you should give them one tablet of 20mg Simparica chewables. A dog who weighs between 22 and 44 pounds should get one piece of 40mg Simparica chewables per month. A dog who weighs between 44 and 88 pounds per month needs an 80mg dose of Simparica for dogs.

Finally, a dog who is between 88-132 pounds needs a 120mg dose of this medication. Ensure you weigh your dog at your vet before giving him any medication whose dosage depends on weight. You can weigh your dog at home, but the vet's office will be more accurate.

What Are the Side Effects of Simparica?

When you give your dog Simparica Flea and Tick Medication, they might get mild side effects like vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, or low energy levels. These side effects are usually mild and pass once your dog's body adjusts to this medicine.

However, if the vomiting or diarrhea doesn't stop, then you should contact your vet. Additionally, you should also contact your vet if your dog has a seizure after taking this medicine or if you see tremors in their body. Other signs you should contact your vet are if your dog has trouble walking or is stumbling around.

Is Simparica Better Than Frontline?
Answer

Both Simparica for dogs and Frontline are used as flea medicines for dogs, and they are both effective in flea and tick treatment. However, Simparica is not the better flea medicine for dogs when compared to Frontline flea treatment. Simparica kills ticks and fleas, and it is not safe to use this flea and tick medicine on pregnant, lactating, or breeding dogs. On the other hand, not only does Frontline kill fleas and ticks, but it also destroys their eggs and larvae. Hence, Frontline is arguably the best flea treatment for dogs. That being said, Simparica is one of the best dog flea treatments available right now. It can successfully eliminate all adult fleas on dogs. However, it cannot match the standards of Frontline.

Is Simparica Safe?
Answer

Yes, Simparica is a safe and effective treatment for fleas as well as ticks in dogs. The drug is approved by the FDA and has been given clearance for prescribed usage. That means you will need a vetโ€™s authorization or prescription for buying this medicine. You also need to maintain certain precautions from your end to ensure the safety of your dog while starting or continuing the Simparica dosage. Do not give this flea treatment drug to dogs that are under six months of age. You must also avoid, or stop giving Simparica to your dogs if they are lactating, breeding, or pregnant. The drug might interfere with these biological processes, which is why it is best to maintain caution. Ask your vet if you can use Frontline flea treatment on your pregnant dog if you must use a flea and tick medication.

Can My Dog Still Get Fleas With Simparica?
Answer

Yes, your dog can still get fleas with Simparica. There are mainly two reasons for this. Firstly, it is possible that the fleas came back after the medication wore out. In that case, there is a chance that your house has a flea infestation somewhere, or perhaps your dog was in a flea-infested place. Secondly, since Simparica does not destroy larvae or eggs of fleas and ticks, it is likely that the fleas came from there. This has a higher chance of happening if your dog seldom leaves the house and still has fleas despite the Simparica treatment.

Does Simparica Make Dogs Sick?
Answer

Simparica might make your dogs sick, but it is not a common occurrence. The medication can lead to tremors or seizures. This is common in dogs that have a history of neurological disorders, however, it can also happen to those without such history. The drug can also make a dog sick if it is pregnant or breeding. Some of the most adverse side effects of Simparica include vomiting and diarrhea. You should take your dog to the vet if you notice these symptoms. Continuous shaking for a long period also requires urgent medical attention.

Should I Give My Dog Simparica Trio?
Answer

You can give your dog Simparica Trio if you need to treat it for both fleas and ticks, as well as worms. However, you will still need a vetโ€™s prescription to be able to use this drug. Simparica Trio cannot be used on dogs that are less than 8 weeks of age.

What Does Simparica Trio Not Cover?
Answer

Simparica Trio does not cover anything except ticks, fleas, and worms. It is very effective against these three parasites in dogs and can guarantee proper treatment for them.

Does Simparica Deworm?
Answer

Yes, Simparica Trio can deworm. It can work effectively against heartworm and lungworm in dogs. Besides, the medicine can take care of fleas and ticks just as well.

What kills fleas naturally?
Answer

There are several natural methods that can help in killing fleas. While these methods may be effective to some extent, severe infestations may require additional treatments. Food-grade diatomaceous earth is a fine powder made from fossilized remains of algae. It is harmless to humans and pets but can be lethal to fleas. Sprinkle it on carpets, pet bedding, and areas where fleas are present. The powder damages their exoskeletons, leading to dehydration and death. Certain herbs and plants act as natural repellents for fleas. These include rosemary, lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint. You can create a spray by steeping these herbs in boiling water, straining the liquid, and spraying it on your pet's fur or around the house. Salt is a simple yet effective method. Sprinkle finely ground salt on carpets, furniture, and other flea-infested areas. The salt dries out the fleas and eggs, ultimately killing them. Fleas dislike the scent of lemons. Create a natural flea spray by boiling sliced lemons in water, allowing them to steep overnight. Transfer the liquid into a spray bottle and apply it to your pet's fur, furniture, and bedding. Regular vacuuming helps to remove fleas, eggs, and larvae from carpets, rugs, and furniture. Be sure to discard the vacuum bag or empty the canister immediately after use. While these methods can be helpful, they may not completely eliminate a flea infestation. For severe infestations or persistent problems, consult with a professional pest control service or a veterinarian for appropriate treatment options.

What kills fleas immediately on dogs?
Answer

There are several topical and oral flea medications available that are designed to kill fleas quickly. These medications contain insecticides or insect growth regulators that target fleas specifically. Examples include products like Simparica, Frontline, Advantage, NexGard, Bravecto, and Seresto. Consult with your veterinarian to determine the most suitable option for your dog based on their age, weight, and health condition. Flea shampoos are formulated to kill fleas on contact. They usually contain ingredients like pyrethrins or permethrin, which are insecticides effective against fleas. Thoroughly lather your dog with the shampoo, ensuring that it reaches all areas of their body. Leave the shampoo on for the recommended duration before rinsing it off. Follow the instructions on the product label and avoid using products meant for dogs on cats, as they can be toxic to felines. While not an immediate solution, flea combs can help physically remove fleas from your dog's fur. Regularly comb through your dog's coat, paying attention to areas where fleas tend to hide, such as around the neck, behind the ears, and along the back. Have a bowl of soapy water nearby to drown any fleas you comb out.

How do I protect my dog from ticks?
Answer

Use tick preventatives recommended by your veterinarian. There are various options available, including topical treatments, oral medications, and tick collars. These products are designed to repel or kill ticks and prevent infestations. Follow the instructions provided by your veterinarian and administer the chosen product regularly, as directed. After your dog spends time outdoors, thoroughly check their coat for ticks. Pay close attention to areas like the ears, head, neck, underarms, and between the toes. Use a fine-toothed tick comb to help locate and remove any ticks. Promptly remove any ticks you find using tweezers or a tick removal tool. Grasp the tick close to the skin and gently pull it straight out. Avoid squeezing or twisting the tick, as this can increase the risk of disease transmission. Create a tick-free environment in your yard by regularly mowing the grass, trimming vegetation, and removing leaf litter. Consider creating a barrier of wood chips or gravel between the lawn and wooded areas to reduce tick migration. Additionally, restrict access to tick-prone areas such as tall grasses, wooded areas, and leaf piles during peak tick seasons. When possible, avoid areas known to have a high population of ticks, such as heavily wooded areas or tall grasses. Stick to well-maintained trails and paths when walking your dog. Some natural products, such as essential oils like citronella, eucalyptus, or neem, may have a repellent effect on ticks. However, consult with your veterinarian before using any natural tick deterrents to ensure they are safe for your dog and effective against ticks. Also, check with your veterinarian about tick-borne diseases prevalent in your area and whether a vaccination is available to help protect your dog against specific tick-borne illnesses.

What can I feed my dog to repel ticks?
Answer

Some pet owners add a small amount of apple cider vinegar to their dog's food or water. The belief is that the odor emitted through the dog's skin after ingestion repels ticks. However, there is limited scientific evidence to support this claim. Garlic is thought to have natural insect-repellent properties, but excessive garlic consumption can be quite harmful to dogs. Brewer's yeast is often suggested as a dietary supplement that may help repel ticks. Some pet owners believe that it alters the odor of the dog's skin, making it less attractive to ticks. However, the effectiveness of brewer's yeast as a tick repellent is unproven.

Do dog ticks go on humans?
Answer

Yes, ticks that infest dogs, such as the common dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) or the brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), can also bite and infest humans. While ticks have preferred hosts, they can opportunistically feed on different animals, including humans, if given the opportunity. Ticks are attracted to warmth, carbon dioxide, and certain odors, so if a tick is in close proximity to a human, it may attempt to feed. Ticks typically crawl onto the body and seek areas with thin skin, such as the scalp, neck, armpits, groin, or behind the ears. Not all ticks carry diseases, but some species can transmit pathogens that cause illnesses such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, or Ehrlichiosis.
