What is everyone using for heartworm flea and tick medication? I have an 11 week old puppy and live in NC.

Old Depends on how bad your tick problem is--

If ticks are not so much an issue, then go with Revolution... or actually we did oral Sentinel (new version is Trifexis) once a month -- we had 3 dogs in a condo, including our Berner, Big condo..... w/o issues... for years...
Now that we moved out to the country we need good tick protection (Revolution did not take care of ALL ticks and they were covered after 1 month, I had to return three dog's year's supply of Revolution!)--
SO now we do oral Heart gard for the heart worm and then apply Frontline Plus during the warm months for the year (april- Oct).... Thats what works for us, we have alot of ticks, and we need good flea control as we have a child and chickens and cats and dont want tapeworms (spread by fleas) going around.....

I use Frontline plus and heartgard also, it has worked well for my 6 dogs. I also use capstar (and also a generic form which is cheaper from littlecitydogs) on occasion if I ever visibly "see" a flea, it starts killing fleas within 20 minutes that is on your dog or cat. I can't have fleas in our house because my husband is extremely allergic to fleas, and they are very attracted to him LOL Anyhow, that is what works for us
