  1. We are fairly new greyhound owners; we adopted our girl Ali in January of this year. We live in the midwest and fleas and ticks are in full swing by the early summer. We decided not to spend any money this year on flea prevention and fortunately, we did not see a single flea until she had a short stay at the vet's office for a dental back in August. Since then, we've seen them here and there, but it seems now like they're multiplying. We've given her multiple baths and we've treated all the carpets in our house with Borax. The baths seem to help for about a week and then she's scratching again. I'm so scared to give her any flea medication because it's hard for them to metabolize it and it builds up in their blood stream. I once owned a Boxer who had a bad reaction to Comfortis and eventually died from it, so pills definitely scare me! What is everyone's recommendation for prevention? Fleas are becoming resistant to Frontline in our area, so that's out of the question. Thanks! -Tara
  2. Hi everyone, We have a problem with ticks in our area. We tried using Advantix and unfortunately Sam did not react well to it at all. His back was itchy for close to two weeks and every time we would pet his back he would arch/curl his back. BUT, it's effective. We haven't found a tick on him since and that's what we wanted. SO we need to find another tick preventive solution... We have read a lot about Virbac's Preventic collar (seems to be very effective). It seems to be the way to go. Our only worry is that it indicates that it should not be used on cats. We do have one cat, should we be worried? They are not at all fans of each other, but we all live together in the same condo. Any feedback/advice/experiences you could share would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  3. Has anyone had any issues with using this on your Grey?
