2) 3) The last thing you need is the flea spot treatment. This really is up to you. Everyone has their own preferences. I am currently using K9 Advantix II because it works for fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks on my dogs and Frontline plus for my cat. For extra large dogs a 6 month supply is around . (Warning: Do not use K9 Advantix on cats, it can cause illness even death on cats) You can click on images below to go directly to the page on Amazon. Here are the three most popular and in my opinion most effective ones.4) The final step is you need to determine the correct dosage. Simply open your flea treatment above and empty it into a glass vial. I would suggest washing the vials with soap and water and let them dry first. Then take your syringe and take out the correct dosage depending on the weight of your dog or cat based on the chart below.If you’re using Frontline Plus: The amount of fipronil in the dog version is the same as in the cat version. The “Plus” is methoprene, an insect growth regulator. There’s LESS of it in the dog product than in the cat product, so it’s safe to use the dog product on the cats but do NOT use the cat product on a small dog. Using a dog formulation on a cat will underdose this ingredient. An insect growth regulator, methoprene effects development of the baby fleas and may reduce long-term flea control, but not anti-tick efficacy. If you have an indoor cat, the Frontline Plus for dogs should be more than adequate if your home is flea-free. If your cat also goes outdoors, it should still be enough, just use a to check for fleas and also consider using these monthly as well to supplement the Frontline. Even with the flea pills it will still be far cheaper than buying the cat version of Frontline plus and also more effective.

K9 Advantix II is an excellent choice for people who live in areas with lots of mosquitoes and flies. If you see your dog being bothered by flying pests, then chances are you live in an area where K9 Advantix II can be your dog’s best friend. Does your dog live outside or spend a considerable amount of time outside? If so, I recommend trying K9 Advantix II. It kills fleas and ticks and can help control pesky flying bugs. I have used it on my dogs and was very happy with the results. I started using Advantix before I ever tried Frontline and I never had a problem with fleas and ticks, nor mosquitoes and flies. Eventually though, I decided to try Frontline because I found it cheaper than K9 Advantix and I found that it worked just the same. Also, I have cats in the house so that was really a deciding factor on why I use Frontline now. If I didn’t have cats then I would still be using Advantix.
