Product Details

Dogs and ticks dont mix! Certifect for Dogs and Puppies is for dogs that are likely to be exposed to ticks, and at the same time, require flea control. It is very possible that the wildlife visiting your backyard are bringing disease-carrying ticks along with them. Certifect for Dogs and Puppies takes care of these ticks in short order.

          Comments about Certifect For Dogs and Puppies:

          I followed the directions completely but once on my dogs the smell was so awful I had to air my house and my car. The smell lasted for at least 24 hours and I was ready to wash it off. I plan to call the manufacturer and let them know. It may work for ticks but I will not use it again.

              I love this product because it does a great job of killing fleas. On the down side my dog seems to feel unwell for about 36 hours after application.

                I'VE USED THIS ON THIS ADVICE OF MY VET. I'VE A BLACK LAB/RETRIEVER THAT LOVES TO RUN THROUGH THE FORESTS' SURROUNDING OUR HOME. THERE IS NOT ANOTHER PRODUCT ON THE MARKET THAT WAS ABLE TO STOP THE TICK PROBLEM SHE HAD. I SAY "HAD." I'VE NOT SEEN A TICK, FLEA, WHATEVER ON MY GIRL SINCE USING THIS PRODUCT. YES, IT IS EXPENSIVE. BUT THE OLD SAYING GOES "YOU GET WHAT YO PAY FOR." FOR ME AND MY PETS, ONLY THE BEST WILL DO.
