Anyone tried K9 Advantix for Tick Control?

Recommended Posts

Mudflap

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.

Any of those? do they have pup formula? cause many don't they have to be over 6 months?

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓

      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
