|sentinel. This is a monthly pill that you give your dog that is milbemycin/lufenuron combo. Milbemycin is for hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, heartworm, and lufenuron is a neurotoxin for invertibrates, harmless to anything with a spine, that also prevents flea embryos from forming the tooth required to hatch.
sentinel can be about $8 per pill, which is $3 more than milbemycin only, but it's still a lot cheaper than even going out and getting a monthly flea collar on top of heartworm pills.
The only thing is that if you see adult fleas on your dog while he is on it go give him a capstar pill. Capstar is a pill that you give when you see adult fleas, and it can be given up to twice a week, It kills fleas off in about a day after giving the pill. Lufenuron and capstar are designed to work together. The bonus is that adult fleas that bite a dog with lufenuron in ts system are sterilized, so even if they bite and hop off, they're sterile.
