Not the HW prevention for me and Ginny

posted 5 years ago

While I am all for heart worm (HW) prevention, this is not the product I use on my Ginny. Advantage Multi is convenient because it's works on fleas and is also a HW prevention med, but I didn't like one of the major side affects with my dog.

After treatment, Ginny would have metallic smelling breath for four days. I discussed this with my vet and her staff, and they mentioned a couple of other clients have this problem too.

I don't like thinking something I'm putting on my dog is making her breath smell metallic. It concerns me about what else may be happening. So, we stopped using Advantage Multi, and now I only use Heartgard for HW prevention.

Note: This doesn't happen with the Advantage product that's only for fleas. Just with the Multi that is also a HW prevention.

Pros: Flea and HW prevention in one

Cons: Left Ginny with metalic smelling breath for 4 days after each treatment

The Best!

posted 6 years ago

In addition to killing fleas, it also:

-Kills flea larvae
-Prevents heartworm
-Controls intestinal worm
-Controls intestinal worm larvae
-Controls demodectic mange
-Controls sarcoptic mange
-Controls ear mites
-Controls lice

It's an amazing medication if used on ALL animals in your household. It's a little pricey so I reccomend NOT purchasing it from your veterinarian, try Joe's pet meds (www.joespetmeds.com) it's the cheapest I've found. They also usually offer free shipping, but it comes from austrailia so be prepared for about a weeks wait, maybe a little less. A definite reccomend!!!

Pros: An 8 in 1 product!

Cons: expensive

Great combo preventative & treatment!

posted 6 years ago

Our shelter uses this for our dogs, and it's a real time-saver because it treats fleas AND worms AND is a heartworm preventative. It's super fast and easy to apply. If it also was effective for ticks and ear mites this would be pretty much the perfect monthly treatment for dogs.

Pros: combines many medications in one

Cons: doesn't include tick or ear mite treatment

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
