black legged tick

I’ve got Floyd on monthly Revolution, and I buy it on a month-by-month basis because he’s been growing so quickly (he’s actually in the biggest/last weight range now), and I pay about $35 incl tax every month which is a little ridiculous.

Been picking American Dog Ticks off of him and was told that Revolution only kills BROWN Dog Ticks… which is kind of shitty! So I want to change it.

Thing is, when I called my vet they said that they sell Revolution and Bravecto, but I’m wondering if they’ll sell 3-packs of Nexgard and Heartgard if they know I’m a patient of theirs.

Though I like Revolution for its heartworm and intestinal parasite features, I don’t like that it doesn’t kill Black-Legged Ticks, and I live in an area with a lot of deer… so I want to do Nexgard (kills all ticks, no HW preventative) and Heartgard combo… which might be a bit more expensive but it’s worth not having to pick ticks off…. picked three off so far.

What preventatives do you guys use? Is my idea sound?
