They are heartworm preventive available. Speak to your veterinarian to help determine which one is best for you pet.

The larvae of the Botflies (Cuterbra Fly) like to hang out in grass, and latch onto warm-blooded hosts, like a pet, that passes through. Symptoms of a botfly infestation include seizures, aggression, blindness, and warbles (lumps) in the skin. The lumps are where the larvae has taken up residence. The best prevention is to keep your dog from hunting rodents. Sometimes this is impossible if you live in an area with rodents, rabbits, or other small mammals. Closely inspect your dog regularly for an signs of warbles. The earlier a warble is removed, the less likely there will be permanent or serious damage to the pet. Safe Pest Control Carefree AZ
