Advantix II

Post by Alifaire »

Has anyone seen side effects from using Advantix II? Right after applying Advantix II, Victor's ears turn red and hot and he lays around with an "I don't fee so good" look for about 8 hours.

Victor used to get a sebaceous cyst shortly after applying Advantix, but none with Advantix II. The vet recommends not to use Advantix II again and reporting the side effects to the company. She doesn't think the 2 epulis tumors that he has gotten are related to Advantix II but seems odd that they have appeared only since using Advantix II.

Are there any flea/tick products that are both effective and have no side effects for Britts? Frontline is not working for dogs in our area for fleas or ticks.

For what its worth, I use Revolution and have never noticed any side effects. It works against fleas. It kills ticks but does not repel them. I just check her for ticks and remove manually.
