I didn't realize Advantix was so bad for cats, even after it's applied to the dog. I don't have any cats, so I don't have to worry, but it's good info to pass around. My vet didn't mention that to me when I switched from Frontline Plus to Advantix K9.

I used Frontline for the past 4 years. Ticks would still come in on Mika and I would find dead ticks all over - mostly on my bed...EW! I JUST switched to Advantix, it not only kills ticks, but actually repells them as well. I've been outside playing with Mika and I come in with ticks on me, but Mika...

Mika's never shown any syptoms of Lyme, but could very well have it I suppose. I've pulled so many ticks off of her over the years. I'll have to call the vet and see if they'll test before administering the vaccine. I'm going to see about that - I don't know if the vaccine would harm her if she does...

I don't want to sound like an idiot, but what is lepto? It's a bacterial disease that dogs can get from drinking out of contaminated puddles. Thanks. I looked at Mika's last physical and she did receive a Lepto Vax 4 shot. I think the pro's outweigh the con's for the Lyme Vaccine. I'm hoping to hav...

I don't want to sound like an idiot, but what is lepto? I read the articles. One of them was from 2001, though it was informative. Lyme disease has a pretty high rate amongst both humans and dogs here. Like I said, my sister's dog has it and her symptoms pop up all the time, it's something I don't w...

I appreciate your responses. I hate when stories circulate about things like this. I never know whether to believe them or not. There are a lot of ticks around here - plenty of deer ticks, too. I don't want Mika to end up with Lyme Disease because I didn't vaccinate, you know?

Lyme vaccine...opinions PLEASE

I did a search, but only found a couple of threads and not very many responses in them. My vet keeps pushing the Lyme Vaccine. I live in CT and there are a lot of deer ticks, plenty of human and dog cases of Lyme here. My sister's dog has Lyme and her symptoms reoccur often. I don't want Mika to get...

Mika went through a stage where she had what we so lovingly referred to as her "tweaked ear". Both ears flapped forward when she was little, and they are both "normal" now. Honestly, I miss her tweaked ear - it had character!

Mika is a terribly picky eater - even with treats! I add a little shredded cheese or a spoonful of cottage cheese to her food and she eats it good. She really likes cottage cheese.

:crybaby: Oh no! She was such an amazing dog, I was really excited to be able to be a part of her transport, but it never happened. RIP sweet Sara Lee. :frown:

wondering about Sarah Lee

I feel terrible, but I can't recall the screen-name of the PBF member that I was in contact with to transport a senior pit named Sarah Lee a while back. The transport was called off due to the adoptive mom being deployed - she was in the military. I was just wondering where Sarah Lee is...what becam...
