Remember, you can't just treat the animal, and not treat your dogs environment. Those fleas had laid eggs that are now hatching and looking for their blood meal. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Wash dogs bedding (and yours too, if you have a bed sleeper). Don't forget to vacuum the dogs sleeping area, too. Wash your dog with flea shampoo.

I believe you can go ahead and treat your dog with the Advantix II. The chewables work from the inside out, with completely different medicine. Although they have an added ingredient to take care of fleas, their main use is for treatment and prevention of worms.

Didn't anybody else catch this? Advantage and K9 Advantix are two completely different flea topicals. Make sure you know which one is being talked about. K9 Advantix is for dogs ONLY, and the precautions about keeping the treated dogs separated from the cat til the treatment is dry, is wise. Unless you have a cat that licks your dogs, kitty should be okay. Advantage, however, can safely be used for both cats and dogs. But as wiith all topicals, keep the treated animal from licking the stuff off themselves. Some animals are clean freaks, and the feel of the dampness bothers them. Once it is dry, it usually isn't an issue. Good on the outside, bad for the insides.

Yes , it will have a very negative effect on your cat. There are products specifically for cats. You should even let the K9 Advantage dry on the dog before you allow your cat around it.

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

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.
