now that I'm officially transferring, I want to know if pet meds (specifically in cats) work best in the so. fla. heat and is there anything I should know in addition to fleas, ticks and alligators if my cats are indoor/outdoor and yes I'll get a fenced in yard.

Frontline used to work like a charm on fleas, but no longer (the fleas became immune?). Now we use Advantage, and it works well. There haven't been ticks down here that I've seen for about 5 years, but when they're around, they get bad fast - I used Frontline at the time for them. The past couple of years 3 of my pets have gotten fungal skin infections which the vets couldnt diagnose (kept telling me it was dermatitis and prescribed steroids), but a friend from California recognized it and had us get a skin cream from a Asian grocery store marketed for human fungal infections and it worked like a charm - we ended up buying a case of the stuff (crazy, huh?)...

The challenge with having indoor/outdoor cats that we've found is that they love to bring "play-things" into the house. Over the past few years, we've had birds, squirrels, field mice/rats and countless lizards brought in through the pet door. Never dull, but forget about having a bird feeder if you have a hunter cat.

We have 6 cats btw (we live on a farm), and don't have a fence all the way around, but they always come home for food and a rub-down....

Default Pet Armour does not work for Tick Prevention

I applied Pet Armour to both of my dogs and despite that, they were infested with ticks! 2 small Shih Tzus and there must have been 60 ticks on each dog. Had to have them "de-ticked", the house was bombed with pesticide by the exterminator, I took them both in right away for Lyme Disease vaccines and thoroughly washed everything with hot water and vacuumed and disposed of vacuum cleaner bags. Use BRAVECTO for dogs - I was able to get Bravecto from the vet even though I had just applied the Pet Armour the day before. After the Bravecto, The ticks were dead on the dogs within a couple of hours. Check your pets thoroughly for ticks - your animals will not necessarily itch or scratch at all - the bite is slow and gradual from a tick. However, if you have one tick, be aware they multiply very, very quickly and in large numbers! Try to avoid a tick problem at all costs! It is a nightmare to fix. Use BRAVECTO or any other oral medication that is vet recommended. The topicals do not tend to work and the Vets do not recommend them.
