Do I have to give my puppies heartworm AND flea preventive pills every month or do they also sell pills that are good for both?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I have two American Bulldogs and they are 3 months old weighting 20-21 pounds.

Thanks

I think they have a pill that's good for both. . .Trifectis? I think. Or you can use a spot-on that prevents heartworm, too (like Revolution or Advantage Multi). Talk to your vet about all the options.

Yeah Trifexis is a pill that covers heartworm and flea prevention but not ticks. If you aren't worried about ticks in your area I believe Trifexis is a good choice. For me I need something for ticks so I use a heartworm preventative and a spot-on flea and tick preventative. As far as I know there isn't a pill/chewable that covers all three at this time.
