We Switched from Frontline to K9 Advantix II

Finally SPRINGTIME is almost here! We've been waiting for it far too long! That also means it's fleas and ticks season. We hope you've already been using some sort of flea and tick medication for your pooch. Here's our story about why we switched from Frontline to K9 Advantix II.

We initially used Frontline Plus on Kobi as it seemed like "the one" to use.We Switched from Frontline to K9 Advantix II DogsizedWe Switched from Frontline to K9 Advantix II Dogsized It worked fine at first, but a few years ago we went to Washington DC on a trip to visit friends. Our friends also have a very cute dog and we thought it would be great for them to play together.

It was a fantastic trip and the weather was beautiful, but when we returned back to New York, we noticed (to our shock and horror) that Kobi had some fleas. Kobi is white and in the spring/summer we keep his hair shorter so it was easy to spot these new fleas.

I called my WDC friend and he mentioned that there was a strain of fleas down there in WDC that seem to be resistant to Frontline and his vet suggested K9 Advantix II. They used it on their dog and the fleas were gone within a day. So we ended up doing the same thing - we went straight out and got K9 Advantix and within a day those fleas were gone and we haven't seen any since.

I'm hoping this Frontline resistant strain of fleas doesn't spread, but we wanted to share our story in case it can help any other dogs and their owners. Note: we also don't want to bash the Frontline name...perhaps they will change their formula to address this situation.

  1. I am not sure how to enter this contest - you don't really say here, but I want to say that we are in desperate need of this product this year- Frontline is not working for us here in the south and since the winter was not cold here in the deep south, flea and tick season is going to be brutal on our pets. Thanks for the great site and articles.

  2. Frontline refuses to work on my little furry son. I've heard awesome things about K9A. Thank you for the contest
