Question from dalay f.
I bought advantage 2 for my dogs. I have 4 and three of them weigh about the same. The smaller one weighs about 25 lbs. I need to know why the advantage is not working on them and also if you could recommend a flea and tick medicine that will work. They stay inside more than out. My girls are itching up a storm and I feel bad for them. Please help us. BTW Sable was a few months younger in the picture.
Our vet answers:
Advantage II provides protection against fleas but doesn’t protectagainst ticks. Advantage II usually works very well if you follow the instructions. It is very important that you don’t give your dogs a bath for atleast 2 days before or after applying the product. Sometimes diet can cause itching and in such cases you should change your dog’s diet to a hypoallergenicdiet or to a diet for sensitive skin. There are a large variety of diets available on the market. You should see a change in 4-6 days.
