    Default Heavy or labored breathing

    Hi guys!!! I was just wondering if any of your bullies have had the following symptoms after you apply their tick medication. I use K9 advantix II as Frontline was ineffective on Her. I know it burns her or something because she sort of shivers just a little bit. Then later on she feels hot to the touch and her breathing feels fast to me. I have to tell her to go drink water (which she does). It really makes me so nervous! And I hate having to apply this to her,but I know I have too as we live in Vermont and ticks are all over the back yard. I am curious as to any of your bullies experience any of this and If so what do you do??? Could it be that I should not apply to her after bath time?? Any thoughts and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks!!!

    Ooooh. I would be worried too! I hate putting flea stuff on my critters! I had a cat have a horrible reaction to it and I no longer use flea medicine on her. That sure sounds like a reaction to me!

    @JAKEISGREAT , She is sound asleep now, but the thing is I need to do this once a month because otherwise she would get ticks!! But thanks for your input. Im wondering whether maybe I should give her benadryl after applying it?? What do you think??

    I think I would use something else on my dog if they acted like that after applying. Do you let the dog dry after bathing before putting it on.

    I was wondering about this too...Charlotte doesn't have extreme symptoms like that, but she HATES me putting the flea&tick medicine on, so I was interested to learn if it does actually "burn" or sting. Let us know if you find something better!

    I think she had a reaction and would NOT use that particular med on her again.

    My cat, CoCo almost died from Frontline (safe for nursing cats & kittens, they said)
    she was on death's door for 5 days. I never use any med on her now, my other THREE
    cats were fine.

    There are natural products that work on sensitive animals, I know living there you must
    use something but you could have lost your sweet baby and might the next time!

    RIP beloved boy.

    @BruceP uses diatomaceous earth I believe. I personally do not like the topicals so much. Have used a diff brand a couple times and hair fell out where it was applied, creeped me out. Thankfully we don't have much in the way of fleas or ticks tho.

    Fortunately for you winter is coming so the tics should be going to bed soon under the snow. I agree I would try something else, there was someone else that posted a few weeks ago about K9 Advantix giving their bully a really bad skin reaction too, let me see if I can find the feed.
