Q. Are there any effective sprays or shampoos to provide flea and tick disease transmission?
DANA KOCH, VMD, MLAS
A. There is a product called Advantage Treatment Spray that contains the active ingredients Nylar and Pyrethrins. Nylar is an insect growth regulator that kills larvae and stops flea egg growth. Pyrethrins destroy fleas and tick on contact.
Bayer also has an Advantage Shampoo on the market, which is used as a weekly shampoo for killing fleas and ticks on contact.
