|Twister, most vets around here won't recommend Advantix because of the danger to cats. I DO have cats but I usually crate all my dogs immediately after applying the Advantix until it is completely dry. That way I also avoid them rubbing it all over my furniture (and, ME!)
I way prefer it over Frontline... while none of my dogs have had a serious reaction to Advantix like they did with Frontline, some of them DO try to rub it off and roll around like crazy. IMO, it is the smell mostly because they always stop once it's dry, and certainly don't act like it's painful at all.
Frankly, I hate using ANY of these products and won't until I find fleas or lots of ticks (I check all the dogs every evening before bed). BUT, it sure is nice that we now have these things available unlike the olden days when all we had was really nasty, poison dips, sprays and bombs, and none of those really worked very well at all. NONE of them had any residual action so you were repeating them every week during the flea season.
