    Default K 9 Advanticjs 2

    -image-jpgI put k9 Advantics 2 on Maggie last night and while brushing her today I see it burned her skin! This is the worst spot, there is one other area that is irritated but not as bad. The vet and the company hotline just say to wash it off with dawn dish detergent, I feel so bad for putting this on her! Obviously I will never use this product again and just want to warn others to be carefull if they do use it. After reading some horror stories of this and other flea and tick products I'm wondering if anyone here uses an all natural product?

    We use frontline on Bacon and haven't had any issues, we also use shampoo with tetri and mint oil in it which is supposed to be a natural deterrent to tics.

    Wow. I hate using any of that stuff, but that is the brand everyone (that I've asked) says has worked best in our region. Unless there's a crazy infestation, I will definitely stick to regular baths and nightly grooming. Thanks!!

    I use Revolution and have never had a problem with it. I've learned that food grade dichotemous earth (powder) is good for killing fleas and other insects with that type of exoskeleton(?) that are on the dogs fur (and also works to kill parasites in the intestines) and neem oil works as a pesticide and repellent. There is something else that's a repellant that I cant think of right now, something like citrus or another strong smelling oil. These are some options I might look into.

    I used frontline on my first boy tank and never had issues. Gotta be honest since I live in Colorado we don't have a bad flee or tick problem I never used anything on my second boy and he never had flee or tick BUT it is hard to get them while lying on the couch.

    I have used it repeatedly on my crew and have never had a reaction like that. Frontline quit working in our area, So I switched to that.

    She has never had a flea or tick so Im thinking I may stick to grooming for the winter and see how it goes. I have used frontline before with no problems. I switched because my trainer recommended Advantics but every dog is different I guess, if it becomes an issue I may have to go back to that. She seems to be so sensitive to everything!

    Lol yes the couch is where she spends the majority of her day! I don't worry so much about fleas but we do have a bad tick problem where we live there are alot of deer.

    I don't put any chemicals on Amber but I do use chemicals on my yard. I treat the yard monthly and every quarter it is treated with heavier doses of chemicals. I would rather have the liquid chemicals on the yard than on Amber or the other pets. Several of my co-workers use all natural products but have problems with fleas getting on their pets. I try to stay as natural as possible with the pets but the bugs have to go at all costs.

    Ouch .. that really does look like a severe reaction!! I've heard of other bullys having reactions to flea and tick treatments and it's not always the same brand. I think it may just be a case of hit and miss as to which one would work for you.

    I really hate having to put any type of chemicals on them, and so as soon as our wonderful Ohio winter arrives with the many feet of snow that comes with it, I do stop treating them until it starts to get warm again.
