I have recently switched vets, that's a long story, I'll tell you later, but this new vet is right beside my work and only 4 miles from my house, new to town and is affiliated with a new humane society that is opening up here. My dilemma is that my dogs have always had K9 Advantix for fleas, ticks, and mosquito's. I called to get some today since they're due for a new application this weekend, and I find out this vet only sells Frontline. I've read the debates on here about what you all use and I think some do well on some and others don't, just like food. Should I switch to the Frontline and see how it goes or do I insist on a prescription and buy the K9 on line? The only thing I'm not sure about Frontline is does it work on the mosquitos and ticks as well as the fleas. I'm more worried about that, than concerned about fleas.
We use Frontline Plus and have had no problems.
It's not the destination, it's the journey!
I have used Frontline for years.. My vet stopped caring Frontline and only caries Advantix....he sais it does the same thing....I still choose to use Frontline and get it elsewhere!.
Our only choice is Frontline as we have cats.
We use Frontline.
So I'm assuming the Plus means it covers ticks and mosquitos also? If that is true, I'll probably just try it and see how it works. I think it's cheaper than the K9 is also, at least it was at the other vet.Originally Posted by Thunders Mom
You don't need an Rx to buy flea stuff. Check out www.drsfostersmith.com.

I just spoke with the vet and he said that he doesn't sell K9 because he feels it is unnecessary to give the mosquito repellent if they're on heartworm medication. I hate giving all this crap to them anyway, it compromises their immune systems. Come to think of it, I'd always give both on the same day, so I'd remember, and sometimes they'd get a little sluggish for a day or two. No wonder, if they're overdosing on insecticides. So, I'm going to try the Frontline Plus and hope they do wonderful.
I thought I tried to get K9 one time and it asked for a script. Maybe I'm dreaming. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Thanks, I will check it out.Originally Posted by K8Show
