I have recently got 2 mini aussies and I also have 2 other dogs. For fleas I use the K9 advantix and it works well for my other 2 dogs. I have read on some sites that the aussie shepherd has sensitive skin so I am asking if it would be okay for me to also use the advantix on them as well?

Do a search on the MDR1 gene. It isn't skin that is the problem. Also, go to the Australian Shepherd forum, there is a whole thread there about this.
