Thinking of switching to this for the ticks this year. But, what if the dog is a licker? If they lick their fur with this stuff on it I can't imagine that would be safe. Yet, you need to spray the whole coat, don't you, including legs & feet?

I'm curious to see your replies to this.

I have tried to spray Niña and she acts like I'm killing her. She does not like the sound of the squirt bottle.

My guys hate it. They don't like the sprayer and then they run around trying to rub it off. There is a lot of alcohol in it.

I have several dogs that don't like the sound of the sprayer so I have a couple of old washcloths I dampen with the Adams and wipe them down with that. I have never have any of my dogs get sick with the Adams and I have all different sizes and breeds. I do the whole body, legs, feet, face(with the rag) and ears. I started using it last year after reading posts on GT, it is great stuff.

That is what I was going to suggest. If the hate the spray, use a washcloth or old rag, to apply the spray.

Oakly is a licker, too, but he is fine ... I just applied the Adams two days ago. :-)

You include the body, legs, feet, etc. You can spray it on your hands, and rub the head and ears.

I am going to have to find it online. Walmart doesn't carry it here and the feed store and Ace hardware only carry the kind with IGR now. I use only the plain Adams spray without the IGR.

Yeah, I don't use the formula with IGR. Just more stuff to mess up the puppers. You can find it ANYWHERE online! Just type in Adams Flea and Tick Mist. Good Luck!

The best price I've found online is HERE. They have excellent service and the prices are about 1/2 of what it is at Petsmart or Petco. I order from here when I have other items I need, too, so that my shipping expense is spread over several items. I also buy our Petzlife Oral Care supplies here ... they have it discounted frequently! :)

Does the Adams kill fleas and ticks once they are on the pup, or does it act as more of a repellant? Does it work for mosquitos, too? We have only used K9 Advantix in the past with success, but I'm interested in trying the Adams, if it does the job.

On the shelves here I've only seen the Adams with IGR. So what does IGR do that makes it special or worse?

uh oh. I didnt know to look for IGR free Adams! I bought some yesterday, the waterbased kind (good? bad?) at WalMart. I guess I'll have to look when I get home to see if it has IGR.

I bought some this weekend, too. I went with the water based because I thought it would be better than the alcohol based. Also went with the no IGR. I just frontlined the dogs a week ago, so I can't use the Adams on them yet, but I am going to spray their bedding. Saw my first tick on the dogs in years a week ago. All this dam rain. Looking forward to trying it, and I may get some lavender baby powder too, after reading the other post :)

Adams kills AND repells fleas and ticks! :-))

 

Get the water-based, with NO IGR. That is Insect Growth Inhibitor. I, personally, don't think it is necessary. I just use the PLAIN OLD ADAMS Flea and Tick Mist (water based :-)) Good Stuff!

Just found it at Pet Food Direct with no shipping! And it makes it very clear which type you are ordering smile.gif

 

Clicky here for Adams online

 

eta - well darn it, the water based one is out of stock...sorry guys.

 

 

Just an FYI... I LOVE Pet Food Direct! This is where I get ALL my food and treats! If you wait for their sales, their discouts, and weekends like this, with free shipping, it is no more expensive than the doggie food stores.

Ha! Thank you so much - but I just came on to post that I just found it at dog.com for 9.99 So I guess I got a good deal! $6 shipping. Yes, PFD is the BEST - especially when they send you the 20% off coupons once you are on their mailing list. Anywho, here's the link for dog.com's Adams. I can't wait until it arrives (am I nuts??)

That's for a 16 oz though. Still a good price?

Dee, you only use it once a week? Does it work for mosquitoes, too? Where I live I'm not too worried about ticks, but fleas and mosquitoes, yes.

 

Yes, only once a week. I have fleas, ticks and mosquitoes here, too! I honestly didn't have much, if any, trouble last year. Good luck! These are some of the many reason, I REALLY do not like summer! :-(

I'm right there with you...the only good thing about the first day of summer is that fall and winter come next.

I looked at my bottle but I can tell if it has IGR or not. What am I looking for and should I return mine if I bought the wrong kind? :unsure
