    Never had any luck with collars. The only thing we've used that has kept the ticks off is the Frontline drops that you put on the back of their neck. And luckily, never had to deal with fleas.

    That's what we use now. We are always looking for something maybe better/healthier for the dogs.

    we are switching to a collar, used to use Frontline, which seemed to work well, But vet is saying collar is just as good and less harsh on dogs. Also suppose to last like 8 months, so is more cost effective.
    We will see......

    Always used Frontline when we had our dogs, now we just have our cats.

    In case you're interested, this is something I built if fleas got into the house or my shop.
    It's very effective and you don't have to spray, hate spraying flea sprays.

    Basically it's a 25 Watt bulb in a mechanic's light, either black light or blue light.
    Rodent "sticky stuff" that you can buy at Lowes.
    Chicken wire cage to prevent "The Furries" from getting into it.

    The light warms up the area and fleas are attracted to it, they will jump at
    the warmth/bulb and that is that for them when they hit the sticky stuff.

    We have three Yorkies, and use a product called Pet Armor.
    Same properties as Frontline, but much cheaper at $18.00 for 3 application tubes.
    Same thing, put on nape of their neck so they cant lick it off, and seems to work very well for 3 month intervals, even with weekly baths.
    It can be found at Walmart and Dollar General stores.
    Comes in 3 sizes, small, medium, and large pets.

    We've been using the Pet Armor on our cat. I agree that it seems to work as well as the more expensive treatments.

    For the last year or so we have been using NexGard on our Keeshonds. It's made by the same people as Frontline. It comes as a soft beef-flavored chewable tablet that you feed once a month. Labeled to control fleas and ticks. The dogs like it and it's less irritating to their skin.

    Switched last year to NexGard and no results to report yet. Not real good luck with Frontline as I would always find blood filled ticks. The only collar that worked for me was Preventic and ticks were usually dead from it.
