What do you use? I have been using Frontline plus for years and this season have had more trouble with it not working as well for ticks. I found two enlarged ticks on the dog a few days apart. Looking back at when I last applied Frontline it was 10 days earlier. Emma was sick last week, limping around, coughing, and not eating very well, as well as just not feeling like her perky happy self. I thought maybe she had hurt herself chasing a squirrel. I took her to the vet and they did a test for lyme, heartworm and something else. I can't remember. The lyme came back positive. Shes is feeling much better, thank goodness, after starting on the antibiotics and anti inflammatory meds. I just bought a 6 month supply of Frontline last month, so I'm stuck with it for awhile, but I'd like to try something else in the spring. I need something that works for both fleas and ticks Any recommendations? A cousin of my husbands swears by Advantix. I'm not sure that is for fleas as well Thx!
