Question from Debbie Foster

which do you recommend that I use for pets that like to go to the lake,K9 advantix II or frontline plus?

Our Vet Says:

Dear Debbie,
 Both products you mentioned are topical ones. Both products are water resistant after they are dry and spread all over the skin. But the problem with spot on treatments is that their efficiency is decreased by frequent water immersion. They also have to be allowed to dry off naturally after the application and water immersion should be avoided in the first two days after treatment. Both products are good, they will protect your dogs against all stages of fleas and ticks. Bayer, the manufacturer of Advantix II, claims that this product has also repellent action against ticks, mosquitoes and sand flies.
I would like to recommend following the manufacturer’s guidelines for treatment, and if your dogs swim more than twice –three times a week to reduce the time interval between treatments to three weeks during the period when swimming is frequent. Please bear in mind that attachments of ticks can be seen even in protected dogs therefore immunizations against Lyme disease are recommended.

I have 12 yr. old Male Black Lab that weighs 133 LB & was just diagnosed with heart worms. Are there any other options for him other than the Immiticide injections? I�m worried about this option because of the risk with his age. A couple veterinarians have told me to treat with heartgard for 12 months & may get negative test results in that time if I was needing a more affordable & safer option? Only other problem, Jordan has arthritis in his hip & currently takes 2 Rovera 100 mg. tablets dai...?
