    I use Frontline Plus for my two. We spent the entire summer on Long Island where ticks are horrible and neither dog had problems. I only treat every 2 1/2 to 3 months and stop in the winter.

    I use Advantage for my boy. He used to be on Frontline, but seemed itchy in the summer. Advantage seems to work better for him.

    I use Advantix on both my girls.
    Java used to be on Frontline, but it didn't work for crap...I found ticks on her and she ended up with Lyme at 5 months old. That's when I switched her to Advantix. When we got Moka I didn't even bother with the Frontline, just put her right on Advantix.
    I haven't found a tick, or flea, on either of them since being on Advantix.
    We live in MA, where the ticks are really nasty in the summer and fall...never a problem. My BF has had more ticks on him than the dogs have.

    I just switched from Frontline Plus to Comfortis. The Frontline stopped being effective, and the dogs and my indoor-only cats all ended up with fleas. Getting rid of the fleas was a huge PITA (I had to treat the house, give everyone Capstar a few times, flea baths - real fun with cats - and treated the cats with Advantage and switched the dogs to Comfortis). Not a single flea on anyone since making the switch.

    We were using Frontline Plus without any problems. My vet stopped carrying it and switched us over to Vectra 3D. We've been on that for 3 months without problems. The big greasy spot is much larger with Vectra and takes a little longer to go away.

    We also use the Frontline Plus for Duke, but now I'm wondering if I could stop in the winter too. We just have the one dog and two cats.
