Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
They are allergic to wearing the plastic collars;they both scratch continuously until hair falls out, so I get them fle and tick spot, which I usually get frontline but this is suppose to kill so much more. I only used one application, but the tubes are so small, I swear nothing came out of the one I put on Buttons and she was still scratching. Papi's tube wasn't full either, I hope this isn't the rest of them!
I give my dogs Advantix II and Heartguard the first of every month. They work well. The only thing I didn't like was having two shipments because one required vet approval. Just hold one until the other is ready and mail them both at the same time. Otherwise I have to watch for 2 packages and fend off porch pirates until I can get home.
We have a 14 lb mini poodle / Jack Russell mix. We've always got the Revolution, or the Selerid flea tick heartworm but she had a shot for heartworm so my vet said to order any flea/tick topical for her. The treatment the vet had was around $133.00. I saw the price of the K9 Advantix and ordered it. For some reason they didn't have to send order to get the vet to approve it. I applied the treatment last week; followed directions on the box. She had a horrible reaction later that night. Vomitted her dinner and was going nuts and could tell the 3 places where I put the treatments were irritating her skin. Since then she has not been able to keep any food down. Every meal she has vomitted and she still reaching toward her backside where I placed treatment. I called the vet and then called the # on back of box of the manufacturer. They suggested we wash the area. We have done that twice and this hasn't helped. Whatever is in the K9 Advantix is way to potent for her and just wanted to warn others about that. We are going to reach out to her vet again today since she hasn't eaten in 4 days. Lesson learned; will stick w/ what I know and not try to save a dollar.
I have been buying from Chewy for a long time (and always recommend it to all my friends) and wouldn't buy from anyone else. Always the BEST service and has the best selection of anything you might need!!
I have used this flea treatment for years and it has always worked for us. I have noticed no adverse reaction and do not use flea shampoo or other flea products. We live on 5 acres and our dogs come in/out as they please. I like that you don't need any type of RX from the vet. Chewy has good incentives to purchase from them throughout the year!
This caused angry irritation at the application site with days of intense itching at the site. I will not use on my dog again.
Compared to the small bit of searching our dog did from the few fleas we found. ADVANTIX 2 tortured him. His skin turned raw and so far foe over 24 hours he is suffering. The vet said to wash it off of him and give him Benadryl which has only given him a little relief and they said if it continues tomorrow to bring him in for a huge vet bill I'm sure Do not make the same mistake!! Andvatix 2 has been a nightmare.
used this a long time ago & it worked great recently bought again for my 3 shih tzus for a small flea problem, not even an infestation & it doesn’t seem too work, also i opened the package & applied it on 2 of my dogs then got to the third & opened the bottle & there was literally nothing inside no liquid, probably best to get vet flea perscription
right price and prompt delivery I highly recommend Chewy for your pet supply.
it works great the first 2 wks but by the 3rd weeks it starts to stop working
