    I have been using Advantix for 14 years now and have found nothing better. Have compared it to cheaper store brands and to Frontline, but the Advantix works best. My outside dogs are not bothered by fleas, ticks or even flies. I have read some poor reviews on this product, but neither of my dogs have ever experienced any side effects to Advantix, even when they were young. It seems that when I used Frontline in the past, the directions said to put the entire contents of the tube in one spot between the shoulder blades, whereas Advantix specifically states to disperse in four areas from the shoulders to the base of the tail. I wonder if some people are putting all of it in one spot and that is causing irritation?

    If you have a tick problem, this is the best there is!, June 28, 2012
    By 

    I live in a heavily tick-infested area with a high rate of Lyme disease, so ticks are a major problem for my pup, especially because of the mild winter. Before using K9 Advantix II, I was using BioSpot (which works wonders for fleas). We went on a walk in the woods and over the course of the next four days, I picked 17 ticks off my dog! I was so grossed out, and she was miserable because I wouldn’t leave her alone with the tweezers.

    Initially, I tried a lot of home remedies, but nothing kept the ticks away. After picking more ticks off her, I decided to try another topical treatment. I did A LOT of research on which product to use, and I finally decided on K9 Advantix II. However, before I put it on her, I researched every ingredient in K9 Advantix II to rate its toxicity. In fact, I even read hazard sheets put out by federal and state agencies. All the CREDIBLE sources (i.e., scientific entities, not ranting pet owners) agreed that the ingredients are relatively safe WHEN USED APPROPRIATELY. This latter point is the key here…

    I found that the ingredients in this flea medicine, as well as in others (e.g., Frontline, BioSpot), do not enter the bloodstream from the skin. However, if they are INGESTED, then you may have issues, including neurological effects and such. Most of these issues, according to my research, do go away after time, but we have heard enough horror stories to know that may or may not be true. You have to be particularly careful, though, because sometimes your dog many get dermatological effects (e.g., a rash) from this medicine, and his/her reaction will likely be to lick the spot to ease that discomfort.

    Anyway, the lesson here is twofold: 1) Read the instructions on how to apply this medicine so your dog cannot lick the medicine off. The directions specifically say to put the medicine at the base of the back in two to three spots. Try not to go too far down the spine because your dog may be able to lick around the base of his/her tail. 2) Watch your dog carefully for about a day after application. No, I don’t mean stare at your dog all day or don’t run errands, but try to put it on your dog when you are going to be around for most of the day, so you can just make sure he/she isn’t licking the medicine or having an adverse reaction. If he/she does start acting goofy, give him/her a bath in dish soap and go to the vet.

    We pet owners have to remember that dogs are just like people in the sense that some have adverse reactions to medicine while others do not. It isn’t always the result of a bad medicine (e.g., penicillin is a lifesaver for some people and deadly for others). This medicine saved my pup from Lyme disease or something worse, so I am thankful for it. Just read the directions and watch your pup!

    More effective and faster than Frontline, August 10, 2011
    By 

    I had a flea infestation in my house and on my dog. I used Frontline, bombed the house, and have been vacuuming daily. I could see a few dead fleas that fell off my dog after the first 24 hours of Frontline and was waiting for more to die off but that wasn’t the case. I followed the instructions exactly, but after the first 3.5 weeks the problem seemed to get worse. I was using Capstar in addition to kill off the adults, but it seemed they kept appearing! I read that Frontline has become less effective in the past few years and that seems to be true. I read some reviews on Advantix II and decided to try that for the second month. I know it takes three months to break a flea cycle but this seems to have worked after the first week! I gave him Advantix II and a Capstar the first day and I haven’t seen a flea since. This stuff is AMAZING and my frustrating is slowly dwindling away. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON FRONTLINE!!

    They have changed formula (I noticed they are a smooth beige color not grainy or speckled the way they were, they break easier but my dogs won’t eat them anymore even if I break them up in their food , they used to chew them up like treats, very disappointed as they are not cheap!

    No miracle here, August 20, 2013

    This review is from: Nutramax Dasuquin with MSM for Large Dogs – 150 Tablets (Misc.)

    I have a 10.5 year old Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix. He has had some hip issues (that began with a fall on some ice a couple years ago). Because of this, I had him on a regimen of Glucosamine (1500mg) and MSM (1500mg). In addition to this, I give him fish oil capsules (approximately 2 – 6 per day). This helped him significantly (I assume the same sort of dramatic results as other reviewers are expressing about this product).

    Just recently, I spoke to a new veterinarian who recommended the Dasuquin. It was pretty pricey, but I knew I needed to try it. I did research the ingredients first, and it appears that their “magic” ingredients are; Glucosamine, Chondroitin and Avocado/Soybean Usaponifiables. Well, okay…I guess it added the ASU – and I had not tried that yet, so I decided to go for it. What did I have to lose, except $85?

    I have followed the recommended dosage and given this a full 2 months to work. I have noticed absolutely no difference. I wish he could tell me if he feels any different, but by all appearances, he seems the same. I originally tried to taper off of his original regimen to see if the Dasuquin would work better just by itself. He definitely seemed to struggle when I withheld the original Glucosamine that I had him on, so I have simply added the Dasuquin to the mix. He simply went back to the same that he was prior to beginning the Dasuquin. Sadly, I cannot say that the addition of the Dasuquin has changed anything for us.

    My point? I am not doubting this product would have given me results – had he not already been on the supplements already. I just believe there is a more cost effective way to get very similar results. If money isn’t an issue, or you do not have a membership to Costco or another warehouse, etc., this product might be your best option. However, if you are on a budget, or want to supplement more than one dog, you can purchase Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM substantially less than the cost of this product. I purchase Kirkland brand (i.e. COSTCO) “Extra Strength” Glucosamine HCI (1500mg) with the MSM (1500mg) already added to it. These are only pennies each. I also purchase my fish oil through Kirkland. Again, pennies each. (I’ve also given him Chondroitin in the past, but didn’t seem to notice a dramatic difference when eliminating it).

    I had also hoped that having a “liver flavored” supplement would eliminate the need to hide the pills in “pill pockets”/hot dogs/other foods. Not with my pooch. He doesn’t care for the taste of the Dasuquin (the little stinker!)and immediately spits them out – so I still have to disguise them. 🙁

    All this being said, I cannot give a 5 star rating. I also refuse to give it a 1 star rating, as I believe that it would be helpful to a pet that has not already tried a Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM regimen. As for myself, I find it unlikely that I will purchase a second bottle, as I feel that I had already found a cost effective regimen that gives the same results. However, I do promise to update my comment if it seems like his condition worsens when the bottle of Dasuquin runs out.

    ON A SIDE NOTE (for those with dogs in significant discomfort): I would definitely steer clear of Rimadyl – as it will trash your dogs liver. I highly suggest adding the Fish Oil capsules (excellent for their joints, heart and hair!), even if you are sticking with the Dasuquin. Ask your vet about the dosage. I am not a vet, but would also suggest if you are nearing the end of your pets life, and simply trying to keep them comfortable – to consider either Tramadol, Meloxicam or both together. I have had good results with both of these on several older dogs. They are usually available at local grocers pharmacies and are very affordable (large bottles on their $6 list!). However, be sure to add some Milk Thistle capsules to your regimen (to help cleanse their livers). Most vets highly recommend the Milk Thistle for this very reason. Yes, it ends up being a lot of supplements, but I believe that the results are worth it.

    *****Follow up****** I did stop using this product when I ran out. I decided instead that I would try adding the Chondroitin to my dogs supplements. I began adding Kirkland’s Glucosamine and Chondroitin. As suspected, I have not noticed any difference in his behavior or comfort level after stopping the Dasuquin. It is disappointing that Dasuquin is charging pet owners $85 a bottle, when I was able to purchase a bottle of 220 “Clinical Strength” Glucosamine/Chondroitin tablets at Costco for $19.99. I am not a vet, and cannot recommend dosages, etc., but if you have a vet worth their salt, they should be able to advise you on the appropriate dosage for your dog. Determine how much Glucosamine and Chondroitin they suggest for their breed/weight and shop around (please be aware that more is NOT better and you can actually increase their pain with too high of a dosage!). I…
