I have been using the Novartis Parastar Plus for Dogs on my 2 dogs, Ellie (5 year old Black Lab / German Shepherd Mix) and Hannah (4 year old Border Collie), since they were old enough to get these. This exact brand is also recommended by my vet.
I have never (knock on wood) found any sort of tick on either of my pups. This stuff is amazing. It dries fairly quickly, within an hour or two. The application to apply is really easy, the most difficult part is try to get my dogs to sit still. Highly recommend for all dog owners.
You can ignore some of the negative reviews about this product, your pup will get itchy at first. I mean anything you put on them will make them itch. But once it dries, your pup will no longer itch!
