Is it ok to use Heartguard and Advantix the same day?

I am trying to get a schedule going so I don't forget anything but today a guy at work said that he was told that you don't want to give your dogs both at the same time, he was told to wait a week, Ruffles got her HG this morning.

I space mine out, one the 1st of the month and the other on the 15th. This way if there is an issue or reaction you know which preventative is the cause.

I give mine both the same day. Never had an issue...maybe I have just been lucky?

I do it the way Sandi does. I haven't heard that it's a problem to do them together, but if he has a reaction, I want to know which thing he's having a reaction to!

I space mine out. My thought is they are both meds made to kill things--ie: poisen. That's all I need to know to avoid doubling up on them.

FYI:
If you can remember to do the flea and tick on the first of the month--then ask your vet about the free "Heartguard" refrigerator magnets/alarms. The company supplied these to our vet clinic and basically they are a plastic red dog house with a beeper/light on them. They are frig magnets and really kinda cute. They are specifically made by HeartGuard for a reminder.

Since she got her HG already, I'll wait a week for the other. Next month I'll try the 1st and 15th. I need easy dates to remember.

Thanks for the tips.

I do mine together or a day apart. but the boys have never had a problem. I do them a day apart because "interceptor" (what we use instead of heartguard) gives them a bit of the runs the next morning so in case I have to do a butt bath, I wait and do the Frontline the next day. But I take them both out of the cabinet on the first, feed the interceptor and leave the frontline out where I can see it so I don't forget.

Well-even if she (I assume your wife) has already purchased the heart guard,it wouldn't hurt to give your vet a call and ask about the heartguard reminder clock given free by the manufacturer. They may have them just sitting around and you could use one! That's what they are for!

Most vets wouldn't routinely give them out,but it never hurts to inquire-

Oh--it's just occured to me your reply was probably not to my post....
