Hello all, does anyone have experience yawing K9 Advantix ll for flea and tick? I have a 9 week old V. We are located in FL so the vet said I should give her this treatment, but I’m spectacle on it.

Its been around a long time with a fairly good safety record. The ingredients have been on the market for quite awhile. In the past I've used products with similar pesticides. While no pesticide treatment is 100% safe, Advantix II is generally one of the most tolerable with a low chance of problems. I'd stay away from any of the newer stuff especially the chewable/internal types. Many people like Seresto collars also. The collar is nice especially if your dog swims a lot, as you can take the collar off and put back on for longer swim sessions, and it continually sweats out the ingredients replenishing anything that got washed away. I personally use a Preventic collar made specifically for ticks as that is the main problem around where I live. No matter what you go with , please only purchase from a reputable dealer such as Petmeds.com , etc. Do not risk your pet buying from the lowest cost shop especially sellers on Amazon and ebay. So many pets have been injured or even killed by knock-off counterfeit products.

Edit : it is up to you to weigh the risk/benefit of using a pesticide on your dog. Are fleas and ticks a problem where you plan on taking your dog? Only one and not the other? This will help guide your decision to treat, if so with what, or not.
