    Interceptor is good for round, whip and hook worms.

    Henry's mom,

    I think you're in Ontario as well, and I use sentinel... I think you can get it at any vet's around here... could be wrong though, I can't back that up!

    But it does work for those things (worms, etc). It also prevents fleas from breeding, but doesn't prevent them from landing and biting, like advantage does.

    I just went with sentinel because it comes in pill form (advantage is a smelly liquid you apply to their skin) and it's easier.

    I was going to say that it looks like sentinel and advantage also covers the three. Check this out...

    Thanks guys!

    I've been using Revolution on him, but it doesn't cover against the "other" worms.

    I would go in and talk with Stars, they will give you an idea of what you need to be doing in your area.
