    DefaultAdvantix vs Frontline on Lab living with cats ?

    We want to treat our new girl with some flea fighter, as she is outside in large parks alot, and the backyard... we have many dogs/raccoons/squirrels etc in our neighbourhood, but she lives in the house with us.

    Our dilemma is that we also have 2 cats that live in the house. I dont want to risk the health of the cats.

    Now let me point out, the dog and the cats so not sleep together, they do not snuggle... the cats more "tolerate" the dog being there. So there is not alot of close contact between them.

    Advantix and Frontline Plus seem to be the 2 that everyone is using, so...
    Is one of these "safer" to use on a dog that is around cats?
    Are there any special precautions we should take when using one of these products ?

    Any help/advice is welcomed

    I was told and I think it say's on the box, not to use advantix around cat's ever. We do use Advantix on Sammi- but have no cat's. Hope ths is helpful- I beleave frontline is fine, but someone else would have to speak up about that.....

    Frontline/Frontline Plus is safe, that is what we use. The chemicals used in Advantix are not safe around cats.

    Advantix also isn't effective for the full 4 weeks it says it is supposed to be. At least we have not had good luck with it. We also have a cat, but he is mostly an outside cat and doesn't go near the dog really. We will be switching to Frontline for next spring anyway though.
