Spreadsheet comparing heartworm/flea/tick products

Attached (as a pdf) is a spreadsheet I put together comparing (most of) the heartworm, flea, and/or tick products that are currently available. I did not include the new "generics" as the information for the original product should be sufficient (for example, look up Frontline for info on Fiproguard, etc.). I'm sorry if I missed any! Oh, and the type is kind of small on the pdf because of all the info that I wanted to include (product name, active ingredients, which parasites it got, general notes on the product), so use the + button on Adobe to make the font larger.

Thanks much for doing this. If I were to add anything, it would be a column with information about side-effects.

Thanks. I'm afraid if I tried to put all the possible side effects for each med on the list, it would probably be 5 miles long! Maybe if people have had personal experiences with any particular drug and the side effects, they could post to this thread?

Iowa Gold, thank you for putting this together.

There is now a poll that is posted that is asking what heartworm preventative folks are using.
Can you cross reference your spreadsheet since it would be so helpful for people.

Thank. you.

Thanks for posting this. I am sure this will be helpful to others. I discovered products that I wasn't familiar with on the list, so thanks.

You bet!

Frontline Plus triggered grand-mal seizures in my Charlie. They would occur 8-12 hours after an application. The Environmental Protection Agency is conducting a study of "spot-on" flea/tick preventatives, including Frontline Plus.

Moderators, please make this a STICKY!

Thank you Sarah! I'm able to figure out exactly what my HW and flea/tick products protect against by looking at this spreadsheet. It looks like our biggest threats for Toby are Tapes and Mites.
