Do any of you guys use this product? Our vet suggested this one- but told me that my kids and I should not touch Zeplin for 4-5 hours after it is applied. I am having the darndest time finding a good time when i can apply it. The kids are always around. So then i thought I would do it before he goes to sleep at night- but the vet said that it was better to do in the day as it could rub off in his sleep as he moves around. I am at a loss. I put it on today and took the kids out for a drs appt, dinner and Cravel and we are now home. I told them not to touch his for another 2 hours- but the poor dog wants to be cuddled and played with. We are all having a hard time. So I am thinkning this was not the best time. I know it will be easier in the Fall when everyone returns to school though. So what about you guys- were you told not to touch the pup/dog for a few hours and when do you apply it?
Before you apply it at all, you might want to go to the search feature on this forum and look up past discussions about Advantix. It might make you want to take it back altogether after reading some other experiences.
Kimberly- your post made me think... if it is that toxic to me at 125 pounds- why in the world am I applying it to a 6 pound pup? Same for my kids- who obviosuly I do not want to be harmed- but they weigh between 45- 80 pounds each- so they would be better off than the pup! Hmmm... definitely something to think about! BTW- I did start reading up on the other threads- thank you!
Just watch Zeplin over the next couple of days and then if you find he has a reaction I would switch. There are plenty of other people who use Advantix with no problem at all, so it's very case specific, I think. Good luck!
Well, Jennifer, IF you use any other topical product like that, I have found that putting it on at night, before bed, is the ideal time. The pup is not going to rub it all off during the night. That's just silly. And it sure beats having anyone accidentally touch him during the day. That's just not at all practical. I've always treated our cats at night.

the vet that goes to agility with me says she drink frontline if she had to, that it's the one she trusts most. so i'll keep posh on frontline. i guess some of the vets are mad now because you can buy it at petsmart now, but she doesn't care where you get it, she just thinks it's good stuff.
