Gave bravecto to my 61/2 m female for first time and the itching is horrible with her now
I can only say now it’s the Bravecto.
I will never ever use this again on my dogs.
Now I have to wait til June to give another form of flea tick stuff.
Now to figure out how to help my dogs with the horrible itching. Grrrrrrrrrrr I feel horrible for them.

I was warned not to use Bravecto due to fertility issues and possible birth defects.
The PetSmart house brand (Top Paw) oatmeal with aloe shampoo has helped with itching in the past, and continued use seems to prevent itching from coming back. Just checked their website and it looks like they've added baking soda this product (there's also another one with no aloe). When I buy again, I'll be trying the one that has both baking soda and aloe.
At least with the product I've been using, no foo-foo scent and the scent that is there doesn't cause me problems (I'm very scent-sensitive).
I use Frontline Plus for flea...

I'm in Northern Illinois and haven't had a flea problem since the early 90's when one of my dogs picked them up from being in a kennel. I use a natural spray to repel ticks. Yes, I find them on my dogs occasionally but I pick them off.

May I suggest beneficial nematodes to help out in the yard. Totally organic & non toxic to your pets and do not kill beneficial insects. Yes there are "bad" nematodes, but these are beneficial nematodes.
