    DefaultAdvantix users!

    Hi everyone! I haven't posted here in awhile. I have used Advantix on my black lab Thor since he was a puppy. We now have a 5.5 month old yellow lab named Zena. Are ticks just running rampant in VA or is Advantix not working as it should? I know they changed Advantix to Advantix II or something like that. They both have Lyme shots but it's just annoying to have to pull ticks off of them all the time. Anyone else having this problem? Can someone else recommend a better flea/tick treatment! Thanks so much! =)

    I use Advantix II on both my girls and have not had any problems with it at all. Haven't found any ticks on them this season.
    We live in a very wooded, tick heavy area...Advantix is the only thing I have found that works this well.
    Java was on Frontline when she was a puppy and we were always finding ticks on her...she ended up with Lyme despite the Frontline and having the Lyme vaccine.

    Thanks, javasmom! Do you apply it every 3 weeks or every 4 weeks like the instructions say? I'm pretty anal so I do put it on them the same day every month. I don't know why I'm finding so many ticks on them this year =(

    Every 4 weeks, to the day.
    Are you putting it on in 4 spots, per the instructions?
    Waiting 48 hours after application before swimming or getting wet?

    I think ticks are just awful this year. I use Frontline on my dogs, and I have not found one recently. I do find dead ones in their crates though, so it is working.

    I went around doing Round-up hte other day and found FOUR ticks on me!

    Hmm, I have been putting it on the 3 spots I think... I'll try the four spots and maybe I haven't been waiting the 48 hours. For some reason I thought it was 24? Ah well, I will try again on the 22nd when they are due for it. Thanks everyone!
