I don't treat for fleas - but do use Heartguard+ for heartworm, or Interceptor.

Sentinel is not nessisarily for fleas just keeps them from reproducing. So you will need to find an actual flea and tick preventive to use with it. I use nexguard and love it but they have to be 5 pounds I think. Trifexis is deadly and dangerous so please don't use it.
