if your dog weighs 65lbs, and a package says 55lbs and over, or 55 lbs +, that would be the obvious choice even if your dog weighs 300 lbs.
advantix 2 is the best product on the market for any dog. if the medication doesnt work, the owner didnt apply it correctly, or washed the medication off soon after by shampooing the same area of the neck where the medication was applied.

you can bathe your dog the next day, but its best to bathe your dog before the application, but if it's too late, it's best just to avoid shampooing & rinsing the back of the neck where the treatment was placed.

the problem probably isnt the dosage if you are using the reccomended amount. in your case the best thing to do is ask your vet! your dog might simply have an allergic reaction to this particular product even though it is the best treatemnt for MOST dogs.
a sign that the dosage is too much is vomiting, lethargy, excessive thirst, tremors, and death.
always follow the instructions for dosage amounts. if there are ANY reactions, consult a veterinarian.

you never want to combine medications on your dog. a verterinarian will tell you that doing so is the main cause for most pet emergencies and deaths. wash your pet with a pet shampoo, but still wait until the next month before using another flea treatment. fleas can literally kill your pet by drinking all of it's blood, but using more than the recommended dose of any flea medication can also kill them. bathe them a few times with a flea shampoo to get rid of fleas until a month has passed, THEN you can switch brands, but be careful not to use the cheaper brands sold at grocery stores; they are less expensive but they are also very dangerous. trust the brands your designated petstores have chosen to sell

No, use the next size dosage down for your 45# dog. The risk of overdose is not worth using the larger size.

Question

Correct dosage for borderline weight?

Our dog is a Husky/Samoyed mix that is 60 lbs and we have used the dosage for up to 55 lbs. He still scratches (although no fleas are seen) and he picks up ticks when we go hiking but we're afraid of overdosage if we go to the next size up. Should we switch to the stronger dosage for higher weight dogs or switch to a different product?

Choose the next size up. The 55 pound mark is the absolute maximum that it will work at all for a dog. The lower number is what size dog it is MOST effective for, but not lethal to. My dog weighs 23 pounds. I use the "21 to 55 lb" size. I always use the entire tube. He hasn't had any ill side effects and is always flea and tick free. Your dog isn't getting nearly enough product without you upping the dosage. He shouldn't be getting ticks at all; that shows that it isn't truly working at this point.
Stronger dosing!

You dog ,like my little one, might be having a allergic reaction to the flea bites. I take my dog in for a routine teeth cleaing and that is the first thing my Vet suggested in regarding to his biting and scratching. He had a secondary infection from all the flea bites. Take your dog to the vet

Question

Can I use Advantage II for dogs on my cats?

Years ago my vet told me it was okay to use Advantage for dogs on my cats and I would buy the largest dog size vials, put them into syringes to drip onto my cats necks. I've always done this and now the site says not to use the dog stuff on cats. Why is this? Is it just to keep us from buying the larger product and downsizing it accordingly? I can't afford to buy lots, although we are now down to only two cats, plus our son has two cats and a dog.

personally products change over time to better the quality is my opinion and it is possible ingredients within have change, plus cats and dogs have different hormones.... So, when it states not to put on the cat the dog's medicine there is a good reason. Stick with what is recommended for the kitty's. They have lots of sales and coupons on line, sign up and save for your cats. Best to your felines.

usually it's about 30 day intervals... and switching over to the other product shouldn't make a difference. You should find which product works best. Follow directions on the box of the item you purchase or check before purchase if you have any concerns. Also, ask at Petco they are very helpful with answering specifics. Also, make sure you pick the right lbs weight for your cockapoo they range from small to large for tube drops and follow exact directions for application. I usually put it on before they go to bed so it has time to dry without being all over the house and playing with one another. They are kennel sleepers at night only. Hope this helped with making a decision. Best to you and your cockapoo.
