    Default Activyl plus tick

    Day 2 post application applied it Tuesday it's now Thursday (technically Friday morning lol) n the "slick" spots r still visible which the vet warned me they last longer than advantage or frontline!! Combed her out last night got maybe 3 fleas n they all seemed lost n dazed!!! Tonight I actually watched a flea bite her n literally start walking up her belly n die he was the only one I saw!!! From my understanding activyls active compound indoxacarb is a marketed insecticide that is safe for animals bcuz it is only harmful to insects that can convert indoxacarb into IN-JT333/DCJW which is basically a neurotoxin for insects!!!! Sounds scary but so far I haven't had an issue!! She's been kinda itchy (side effect in 10% of dogs) but I examine the site twice a day n haven't noticed any excoriation or hair loss!!! Well just wanted to jot some stuff down for anyone looking for info on it

    It could have still needed a prescrip not sure, but i think i'll head to the vets and just get a month or two to try since our luck with everything else hasn't been good!!
