Has anyone here used the treament for fleas/ticks sold by Banfield at Petsmart? I am really having a hard time deciding what to use. I had a coupon for a free tube of K9 Advantix which I have used before with no problems. However they could not sell me another tube of that but did sell me a tube of their own product - First Shield Trio. You hear so much of what is bad out there and it is really confusing me. I have used both K9 Advantix and Frontline with no problems so I am thinking I should just stay with one of those.


Would appreciate more input.

We use Frontline on ours. It seems to work but we can only buy it at the vets.

We always used Frontline Plus with Summer and Murphy, until we found that Murphy would have a seizure within 24 hours of application. Summer never had a reaction. It did work very well.

I am NOT saying, don't use it, I AM saying, do keep an eye on your pups for reactions to all medications.

i also say, try the new product, if it works well then stick to that. just because its a popular brand (frontline advantix) doesn't mean it is the only one that works. give it a go. and see how it goes. you can also compare ingrediants, on all of them if their the same dont worry.

in my chem class we tested a generic brand antacid and a name brande one, and it turned out the generic worked better, more efficiently, etc. then the name brand. a real eye opener for alot of people in that class. so it all comes down to ingredients and your experience.
