How often should pets take parasite-control medications?
Depending on the specific formulation you choose, your pet will need to take its medication once every 3 to 4 months.
What happens if my pet misses a dose of their parasite control drug?
They will be left unprotected from parasites. Remember, parasites are around throughout the year, even during the wintertime.
