Acarexx is a treatment for ear mites in cats, particularly kittens. Acarexx is a one-step treatment, just one application required. Safe ear mite treatment is approved for kittens as young as 4 weeks. Acarexx suspension is nongreasy and easy to administer. Because it contains no irritating solvents, it won't cause hypersensitivity that can be associated with other products. Most other treatments are oil-based, which makes them difficult and messy to administer.


Advantage (imidacloprid) is another method of flea control offered by Luv My Pet, Inc. This product does kill fleas, and has shown larvicidal activity in preliminary studies. Advantage kills 98-100% of adult fleas within 24 hours after application.

Advantage is a liquid that is applied to the pet’s skin, a topical medication. It is not absorbed into the bloodstream. Once applied to the skin, Advantage spreads over the whole body surface of the pet, so that a flea is affected no matter where it contacts the animal. Advantage is stored in the hair follicles and sebaceous glands in the skin, and continually secreted over the next 30 days. Therefore, this medication is recommended for once a month application.

Advantage works by impairing the flea’s nervous system, leading to death on contact. This avoids the fleabites, and therefore, this is the flea control choice for allergic animals.

Advantage is also completely safe for puppies and kittens and can be applied as early as 8 weeks of age. Once applied, the animal should not be bathed for 4 days. Recent studies showed that dogs repeatedly immersed in water weekly still experienced nearly 90% efficacy. After shampooing, Advantage-treated dogs still showed 92% efficacy.

Advantage is also dispensed depending on the weight of the animal. Again, the weight of each pet receiving Advantage should be documented on the Vaccination Certificate, and the veterinarian must approve the animal to receive flea control.

Trifexis combines two trusted active ingredients to provide protection for your dog against these three kinds of dangerous parasites. And Trifexis is a flavored, chewable tablet that can be offered as a treat.

Trifexis will prevent heartworm infection, and control hookworms, roundworms and whipworms in the intestine. Remember that Heartworms are a blood parasite (living in the heart), and "worms" are intestinal parasites. It also kills fleas and prevents infestations. And Trifexis is a flavored, chewable tablet that can be offered as a treat.

Trifexis is dispensed in sizes based on the dog’s weight. It is therefore important that each dog’s weight be estimated in the appropriate blank on each vaccination certificate.

Dogs that are positive for Heartworms must not receive heartworm preventative, as an adverse reaction may occur. Again, we recommend heartworm testing for your dog if he/she has never been tested.
