I may have to switch to frontline plus or frontline (what is the difference?). I have been using Vectra, which in theory is a gentler product and safer. HOWEVER, Dionna does not like it at all and it seems to be getting worse each month. So I asked the vet about this and he told me that unlike any of the other products, Vectra, when applied, somehow moves up the hair shaft and dogs can feel this movement of the product up the hair shaft and this upsets a lot of dogs. Including Dionna. He explained it in more scientific terms, mind you, but you get the drift. So now I am not sure what to do as this movement feeling must be downright uncomfortable for her because she tries and tries to rub it off.
Plus I was told that you apply it from the nape of the neck down to the tail. I dont know if that is the same with all of the other products but that is the proper way to use Vectra. All of this time I have been doing it wrong. I have been putting it in the shape of a T along the shoulder area.
We have bugs here--I live on the east coast and fleas/ticks are problems. And this is all really new to me so I am just not sure how to proceed.
