I bought a flea collar and chopped it up in several pieces and placed some of the pieces in my vacuum cleaner (I would replace those pieces every few weeks). I then would vacuum every day, making sure to dump the vacuum container outside after each time. I also bought Advantage from a Pet Hospital/Veterinarian (3 months use). I then choose a date to apply the medicine to my pet and did so religiously. My pets are indoor only and after 5 months of doing this…goodbye fleas.

Try adding GARLIC to your pet's food... whether it's crushed, minced or powdered doesn't matter - just make sure it's natural and doesn't have lots of other stuff added. Just add as you would for your own food (consider the weight and portion of your animal)
Ticks especially are repelled by Garlic, and even if you find one on your animal, chances are it won't have rooted yet.
There are even yard sprays available made from garlic to keep ticks and fleas away.
