Default K-9 Advantix or Frontline?

Which is better for a toy poodle?

Either one will work fine. Frontline is cheaper but doesn't help against ticks.

Then again if you're not in a tick-heavy area there's no need for the protection. Also Frontline is slightly waterproof. But, again that's not really much of a big deal.

I thought Frontline helped with the prevention of ticks?

my shepherd had a terrible reaction to Frontline. it was on the second dosage...he suddenly reacted soooo terribly...scratching until his fur was flying! (at the site of application) Advantix has been wonderful. no fleas, no ticks, no reactions. it is certainly up to the particular dog....but I am just soooo leary of Frontline. for my pup it was an allergic reaction, or too harsh, or something. nothing wrong with a good flea powder either. depends on the pup.

I tried both while I was in Florida. Frontline seemed to act more like ketchup on a hot dog than a repellant. Eevee got fleas ANYWAY and a lot more of them.

When I put the Advanix on her, all the fleas jumped off/died... I brushed out a ton of dead fleas... none living. And it LASTED, sometimes for more than a month!

When I came back to Colorado I had to wash it off though, because it's toxic to cats and I have a cat. But that's okay because we don't have a flea problem here. >^^;<

frontline *does* work against ticks.

advantix is toxic to cats, so i won't use it.

I use Frontline and Sentinel and live in a fairly tick heavy area. I haven't seen any on Herschel since we've started him. (Discontinued treatment for the winter)

Last June we didn't think Herschel would need anything. Yeah right, I found probably 6 on him but since he is white it was easy to get all of them off immediately.

Elegy GREAT point about cats. People sometimes forget that some chemicals that are fine for dogs can kill cats.
