ProTICall Insecticide

ProTICall is a tick medicine that lasts for about a month. It can only be used on dogs. They have a version that is supposed to work on fleas as well. It uses an insecticide called permethrin, which is a synthetic version of a natural insecticide derived from chrysanthemums. It repels ticks before they can attach themselves to the dog by damaging their nervous systems. There are several other companies that use this chemical in their tick medicines, including K-9 Advantix. It is made by Schering-Plough.

Are there any side effects?

You should not use it in puppies or in elderly dogs that are weaker, or in dogs that are ill. Some dogs are allergic to it, but usually the side effects are very mild - it's mainly redness of the skin where you applied it. If dogs lick at it, they may drool or start vomiting.
