K9 Advantix® Ii

Recommended Posts

I use the K9 Advantix -- I switched to it SOLELY because of all our trips into the US and into tick areas. I don't like that I also have to use Heartguard with it, I prefer it to be all in one. But that's just me being lazy :). If you don't have ticks, why not Revolution? Or Advantage Multi (I've never used Advantage Multi, just regular Advantage but it sounds the same as Revolution). Or regular Advantage with Heartguard?

I'm the opposite - I'd rather use HW year around and flea/tick as needed.

I haven't seen any ticks this year myself and really haven't seen much of a flea problem.. he seems to be ok right now.. I put it on last night... i do hate the greasy spot in his fur lol.. I can't win for losing when it comes to his fur.. his coat is like half beautiful and half terrible. its only been seen he was sick and had a reaction to the antibiotics... but I was i could do something to make his fur beautiful all over...

I must be old school, I don't like permethrin either. We use Trifexis for everything but ticks. It's a pill and there is no mess on the neck. When we are in tick season I use a tick collar.

We're switching to this for tick season. I don't like that it needs to be applied fortnightly and I'm going to have to see how it goes with Paige who tends to be sensitive. But better than paralysis tick....

Fortnightly? This means every two weeks, right? It's not applied every two weeks -- it's a monthly thing.

 

No issues but does leave their back nice and 'greasy' for a few days. Ticks are terrible this year. Id stick with tick medicine if your vet recommends it.

I discovered, through sheer trial and error, that the more application areas you have, the less "greasy" the back becomes. So now I apply all the way along in as many spots as I can manage. And I mean lots -- like 10 or even more. It really helps.

Thanks for the tip! We just switched from Frontline to Advantix.. I did maybe 5 or 6 spots so I'll shoot for more the next application. :)

Not here in Australia. For fleas and some ticks, yes monthly. For paralysis tick it's effective only fortnightly (2 weekly). We have a different brand here so perhaps it is different?

Wow, that must be some kind of tick! I had to google it and learned it's an Australian beastie. Nasty thing!
