Anyone tried K9 Advantix for Tick Control?

9 posts in this topic

I see adds for this product in Pointing Dog Journal and think it has to be better the Frontline.

I applied Frontline 9/1 and another application on 9/14 in preparation of Grouse opener.Must dog was covered with Deer Ticks after the weekend and about 20 were attached.

I've spent a fortune over the last 8 tears due to tick illnesses. I hope this product works. I see it is a product of Bayer Healthcare.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I've asked a few vets that I know and they have always said they like Frontline better, but I'm sure there are vets that would say the opposite. As far as the ticks being stuck to your dog I would just leave them and let them fall off, with those doses of Frontline you put on you should not have anything to worry about. My neighbor is a vet and he says to just let them fall off from the Frontline.

I have used both of them. Frontline mostly but did do some Advantix this year too. I cannot tell the difference though. Maybe the ticks can. IF it keeps them from attaching then it has the advantage. If not then it is a horse a piece.

No matter what keep the vaccinations up to date. You can always give them a bath with tick shampoo when you get home too.

I tried the K-9 Advantix and liked the results. I have also tried the Biospot and had very good luck with that also. I ran this by my Vet first, and he said that it is a good product, just not as popular as frontline and K-9. The cost is a lot nicer, but that wasn't my main concern when I asked about it. I know there was talk about it in the past. Use what you feel comfortable with.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
