Flea/Heartworm Prevention

Recommended Posts

It doesn't look like Revolution even claims to deal with hookworms, so I wouldn't consider it a possibility if that's what you are looking for. Seems like it checks the heartworm, tick and flea boxes, but not hooks.

Depending on where you are located and when you got your dog (US? recently?) you should really be using a product with moxidectin for hookworm; it's the only thing that seems to touch the new crop of hookworms greyhounds have been dealing with in the US the last few years.

Revolution is alleged to prevent hookworm, but it looks like it still has some nasty adverse effects.  https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/risks-of-heartworm-drugs/. This article goes in depth for each heartworm medication.  Our pups (two four month old labs) just had a nasty reaction (persistent diarrhea) to Heartgard Plus so I've been researching others.
