Heavy duty flea prevention

Hey guys, in having a bit of a problem. I have been spending tons of money on flea prevention and I haven't found anything I really trust. I live in a 100+ acre farm so my dogs are out running around pretty much all day. And that means they are exposed to fleas and ticks constantly. I've tried topical treatments, collars, sprays. I never see any real prevention. And if I do find something that works, it only works for a couple weeks (if that).
Do any of you know any good, strong flea products?

What have you tried? Were the products from your vets or something from a pet store or purchased online? Have you treated your house with a spray supplied by your vet? Fleas breed in the house, so not much point in only treating your dogs.

Seresto collar or Bravecto oral treatment should get rid of your fleas. Although with Bravecto fleas and ticks have to attach and feed before to can die.

Some of the new oral meds work fairly well. The problem we had, was with Trifexis, and it almost did Samantha in. After about her third dose, she suddenly could not use her back legs, and she was weak and wobbly. Fortunately she did recover, but it scared the hell out of us. Needless to say she does not get that any more. Lots of dogs apparently do not have reactions to it, but some, I know for sure do.

Try adding Brewer's Yeast for dogs to their diet. Mine haven't had any fleas (no other prevention method) and everyone tells me what a brutal flea season it's been here, but nothing on our dogs.

Cleaning a house will not sort problem if dogs r roaming acerage lol. But it will help. Capatar tablets kill everthing on dog in 1hr. No protection. Just kills everthing today? no lingering chemical nasties in blood stream that can paralyse a dog. As threAd above demos.

Does this work for ticks as well? And how much should I add? Is there a certain measurement per pound or something like that?

This is an old post, 2015. But , I will say I use flea and tick prevention two ways. One is with occasional wondercide natural flea spray, the other is that I feed raw and give spirulina. Therefore a really strong immune system helps to keep them away naturally. Chemicals are a no go for me.
