Thanks.

I sent them an email and they responded back assuring me that I do not need a prescription. So I've calmed down quite a bit, I was literally freaking out at one point, lol.
... But, just to be safe I'm going to call our vet tomorrow and see if I can a prescription from now on, lol.

Now that's figured out, I'm pretty excited to get this stuff. It's a flea-tick-hookworm-roundworm-ear mites-treatment and heartworm-preventative all rolled into one amazing little bundle. It's a shame that it isn't more widely available, but my brother reasoned that more widely available products tend to have the fleas develop an immunity, perhaps that is why.

Forgot your earlier question, yes fleas can cause tapeworms if ingested.

Ick, not good. Especially since my dog Samantha is bad at chewing on not only herself but also Jack.
We've had to keep them separated because Samantha is licking him and chewing on him. We gave them both topical treatments and I don't want her to get sick.
