Frontline is not working, is Advantix SAFE?
I am afraid to use Advatix on my dog because of that extra ingredient i.e. pesticide that makes it toxic to cats. I dont' have any cats, but you know, you can punch up horror stories on dogs having kidney failure to fatal seizures about this stuff on the internet. Also plenty of peoople that use it fine with no problems - regularly.

I have a 37 lb., nine year old cocker and have applied Frontline with no results and now her skin is quite irritated and she wearing herself out with discomfort from the fleas. Vet is a young girl just outta college cuz my regular vet is on vaca. She urged me to give dog Benadryl and use Advantix.

Anyone have any personal experiences or thoughts on Advantix please share.
Thanks.

Re: Frontline is not working, is Advantix SAFE?
i've used it occasionally .

it does seem to work a bit better than frontline plus.


it is also more expensive .

there is a pill called comfortis that seems to be more significantly more effective than both for fleas. doesn't prevent ticks though.

I use it too. I give it to a 4lb chihuahua, a 40lb boxer, and a 70lb weimaraner. It takes about an hour for them to be flea free and lasts a month.

Daily flea combing, especially if you only have one small dog, is very effective and completely safe, when done right.

Diatomacious earth is also very safe and effective when used properly.

Use Diatomaceous Earth (FOOD GRADE) only.

I once put shit like you're talking about on my cat and IT ALMOST KILLED HIM! He had allergic reaction to it, started drooling (took 3 days to effect him), mouth all swollen, etc. Vet couldnt' figure out what was wrong, and said he had "Feline HIV Aides" and to put him down!

I said HELL NO!!! Took him home (broken hearted - I LOVE HIM!) to try to figure out what to do....still had LOTS of fleas. I used Borax (THAT WORKS, TOO!) I finally figured out that he had had an allergic reaction to that shit, and found a "cure" on-line to give him Activated Charcoal. IT WORKED!!! He survived!

Then I discovered Diatomaceous Earth (FOOD GRADE), and now I sprinkle a little on them (LOTS of cats!!) about once a month. NO MORE FLEAS!!! You can sprinkle it where they lay, etc. and it will keep all kinds of pests aaway.

Use only the Food Grade one so that when or if they lick it off themselves, it can't hurt them. In fact, when we adopted one abandoned cat, she had tapeworms, and fed her a teaspoon of DE everyday for a month, and NO MORE TAPEWORMS!!!

The stuff is great.

Research it.

Re: Frontline is not working, is Advantix SAFE?
I used to use Frontline on my dog but found it did not work to prevent ticks. I found it work alright at stopping the fleas though. IO switched her to Advantix after finding a tick attached to my lower eyelid last summer gasp

I too, was leary about using Advantix as I have two cats and one of them likes to groom the dog.

What I've found out is so long as you keep the treated dog away from the cats for 48 hours or until the application site is dry there won't be any issues.

I'm still paranoid about it though but haven't found anything else that works. I hate using pesticides on my dog and wish revolution worked better.

Frontline and advantax and all the other chemical weapons are hazardous to all beings. Don't use that poison on your animals it's cruel!!

Use a natural flea collar and a natural spray. Look into all natural ways of repelling insects from your animals. Stop supporting big pharma and helping TPTB with their Agenda 21 genocide. GEEZ!!

Advantix is highly!!! toxic to cats. It can kill them if they come into direct contact with it. They lack an enzyme which helps to metabolize pyrethrins.

If you don't have problems with ticks

Revolution is a much safer alternative and it is not a pesticide. The active ingredient (selamectin is in fact quite safe.

It is related to Ivermectin which has been used to prevent Heartworm infection for many many years

Re: Frontline is not working, is Advantix SAFE?
I have one small dog, and multiple cats. None of my cats go outside, and I have had horrible flea problems this year. (East coast, US). I've spent a fortune on Frontline, and it doesn't work! I really hate putting that poison on them, but I've searched online and agree, you can find reviews, pro and con for everything. It's maddening. I swear, I have one more dose left for the cats, and I'm never buying that crap again. Glad that I read this about Advantix and cats, never buying that either. What I am going to do, I don't know.
