I use K9 Advantix and it's worked for the last couple of years now it's for fleas,ticks, and mosquitos........ I also have heard of the oral med but I don't remember what it's called.....

If you are using a flea topical that repels mosquitos also, it probably contains Permethrin...it is deadly to cats, even if the cat just rubs on the dog that has been treated. So don't use those formulas if you have cats. Just an FYI.

Can anyone else confirm this? I have two cats.

Thank you. So if the tick preventative we use on our dogs contains this, we need to switch, right?

To be safe, I would.
We won't use anything topical for our dogs because of our parrot.

We have 3 dogs and 2 cats. We use Frontline Plus and it works well, and it's safe for cats. The only downside is that it doesn't repel mosquitoes.

Yeah, I rushed down to check the Frontline and was thrilled to know that it is free of Permethrin. Doesn't repel mosquitoes, but doesn't hurt the cats! :thumbsup:

Thanks guys!

There's a brand new flea pill out besides program... It's called Comfortis. I have zero experience with it so far, so I can't say much about it.

Though, the good news every time they come out with a new one is that all the fleas that have evolved resistance to other flea meds have a better chance of being susceptible to a new one.

Advantix is safe to use if you have cats as long as you keep the cats away right after you apply it until it dries.

Are there long term affects from giving a dog these meds?
