We used K9 Advantix this year when we had our (albeit minor) breakout.

Frontline works for us when I remember to use it. I don't think fleas are a problem here (I've never known anyone who's pets have had them) so I'm not worried about those, and not really worried about ticks either because they're easily spotted in Juno's short hair. But Juno has had a couple of ticks in her life and usually it's after I've skipped a month or two of the Frontline. So either it works, or the timing is just coincidence.

Certifect is supposed to have awesome tick destroying powers, but the clinic I worked at saw way too many neurological reactions to it for us to feel comfortable recommending it to most people. We only mentioned it to people who had hunting dogs or dogs that would otherwise be exposed to ticks on a frequent basis.

I have a few sample doses of Certifect laying around that Merial gave us, but I'm a bit leery to use it. I won't need t until next Spring anyway, so I have time to think about it.

ETA:

Can't get Interceptor anymore anyway though, so it will probably just be Trifexis year round from here on out and the Frontline will really be for ticks, which like to lurk around just about everywhere we go for outdoor agility. =P
I use Heargtard when I use Frontline. I've never had a problem with it, and I get it for free.

I use Advantix. Usually apply it once every summer or more as needed. Once is normally sufficient.

Wow, that's interesting. We haven't seen any, but we haven't sold very much of it, either. We also only recommend it to people with significant tick problems.

I used Revolution this last summer. Was pretty happy with it and think we'll go that route again.

Before that I did Frontline Plus three times each summer. Eh, it was okay... Scout reacted to it a little.

Can't use Advantix because of the kittehs.

Not to hijack the thread. BUT if one needed to get comfortis and other flea stuff from the vet. Does one have to take said animals to the vet, if the animals have never been there before?

Frontline was used on Marlee for ticks.... she still had fleas, though.

At our clinic the policy is that prescription meds cannot be given out unless we have seen the animal in the past year. We give out Frontline to anyone, but not other stuff.
