Frontline Plus vs Advantix iI

Please help! I have read great and horrible reviews on each.

I bought Advantix online and am planning on returning it. I bought FtontLine just now but am having second thoughts.

there's nothing good about putting pesticides in us or our dogs.

I used Frontline Plus for over 14 years with my last dog with no problems. My current vet recommended K9 Advantix II for Molly. She is a tiny girl at 6 lbs. and we have had no problems with it over the past year.

I have used Frontline Plus on Whimsy for 5 years and have had no problems at all. I buy it at my Vet.

I've never had any problems with Frontline and I've used it on our dogs for over 20 years. We have a very bad tick problem here and lots of deer and Lyme disease so I think of it as necessary. I've never tried Advantix.

I was using Frontline on my cats, and about 5 years ago it just stopped working. The vet said that quite a few patients had reported that, and that the fleas in this area had apparently become resistant. I have been using Advantix II on the dog, (Advantage on the cat) since then with no problems. I much prefer to use natural methods when possible, but Benjamin becomes extremely itchy for days if he gets even one flea bite, so I have to use something that works. It would probably be best to ask your vet if one or the other of these products is more effective locally.

We had the same problem here... The vets around here were finding that Frontline just wasn't working for ticks in this area. And while I would prefer not to have to use these chemicals at all, Lyme vaccine is worse and so is Lyme disease. So... i DO use Advantx (which works pretty well), but only as often as is absolutely necessary. i use it no more than every 6 weeks and only during the worst tick times.

I was leaning towards returning it because of all the terrible reactions I have read about. I originally bought it because Zoey is only 5 pounds and it said it' score 0-10 pound dogs. The Frontline says Up to 22 pounds and that seemed like too big of a dose for a 5 pounder.

The vet today said stick with Frontline.
