Another useless Flea treatment
considering how much these treatments cost, it has never worked on any of my dogs and have tried it at various times over many years. Don't bother
Advantage for dogs...instant relief
I kept blaming my dogs skin condition on allergies, even though I should of known better...one day only on
Advantage, and it was like night and day...although I knew my dog did not have fleas I could see, and she was not itching, she did have lesions and scabs all over her back, and just an overall nasty skin condition...obviously, she did have flea dermatitis...which I suspected, but kept holding off, again thinking allergies. Advantage took care of it, no problem, no effort...my dog is at peace (ps...I did break my back and wash everything...
Waste of time and money
I have used this 3 times in a row now. Did not work at all. Did not kill a single flea. Complete waste of money.
This is a must if you love your dog.
No side effects
Easy to do each month
Dog doesn't mind
She doesn't have any flea or tick problems
I have a Klien Spitz (Medium size)
Waste of money
I have been using advantage for a year. My dogs still have fleas. I use it every month on the dot , but lately every three weeks and they still have fleas. I give up and will be switching to another flea product.
This is rubbish, used on Greyhound and Lab/Retriever
I should have read a review before purchasing as I had assumed any of the more expensive Flea treatments would work. I am wrong. Both dogs have been treated and both still have fleas. I wondered if my greyhound had been reinfested so reapplied after 3 weeks and still no good. will be off to the vet to get my next option.
Waste of money!
This product has been a total waste of money! My 2 dogs have constantly had fleas as I attempted to persist with this expensive useless flea treatment. I'm absolutely discussed that my pet shop actually recommended it to me and actually took my money for such a useless product. Do not buy this product!
Still waiting to see if my dog is going to survive after applying this product.
My dog has had a mysterious illness on and off for the last 3 months. We have finally pinned it down to the day following application of advantage, I only used it as a last resort and I wish I never had. His symptoms are vomiting, the runs, weakness, trembling and lethargy with fever. I'm hoping he can pull though this without any long term affects. Very disappointed in the company for producing such a product and labelling it as safe and effective. These companies should be held accountable for the side effects of their toxic products.
Have had my dogs on this product for 6 months, still have visible fleas.Tried speaking to customer service, laid blame on everything she could think of rather than admit the product may be at fault. Costs me $150 every 2 months to treat my 4 dogs. Would it of killed Bayer to replace the products I have as there is obviously a problem with the batch I have.
Better than nothing
After using for the first time most of the fleas disappeared, much better that using nothing at all. Have seen a couple of them though.
Totally Useless. Simply, just didn't work.
Lucy, 8.5 kgm jack russel.
Totally useless. Simply, just didn't work.
Both frontline and revolution similarly ineffective.
Comfortis seems to work fantastically well for lucy.
This garbage killed my 15 yrs loved family pet 3 days after i put it on her do not buy this poison! Poor thing had fits and died and was healthy before i used this poison
Never use this again
I have been using advantage for 7 years then my dog was scratching screaming in pain took her to the vet she was riddled with fleas it is an expensive product then vets bill and all the products to fix her cost me a fortune I will never use advantage again so much money and pain to go through I deserve a refund for what I haven't used!!!
I have used this product in the past effectively, moved house and after eight years have found the need to use it again, only problem was that my aging cat now 14 reacted badly to it. She was dry retching and running backwards and acting extremely depressed until 90 minutes later when I washed it off. It was there long enough to be effective and do it's job. Am worried about repeating it, but may do so by halving the amount to apply.
Have used for year...best product ever.
I have been using this product for year after using frontline with no success, I tried Advantage and never looked back. My dogs wouldn't know what it is like to have fleas and they swim everyday and it is still very effective. I have had some spilt on me and flicked on me and I and my dogs have never gotten sick from it. Wouldn't change to anything else as I know this works. I have recommended to many others and they agree with me. Best product ever. Don't but frontline does nothing.
Worth the money
We have been using this product for about 4 years. Our dog has never a reaction and all you need to ensure is that you buy a suitable product for tapeworms, which advantage doesn't cover. If we were in a tick area i think we might look at another treatment. But at the moment it's an cost effective option as heartworm innoc is nearly an $100.00 on top of the annual boosters.
Advantage: just what you need for flea-allergy dermatitis.
Bobby, my westie-poodle cross, had experienced dermatitis around his rear end for most of his life despite my use of special shampoos and Frontline flea treatment on a regular basis. The condition was not debilitating but it certainly annoyed him. Then, just as a shot in the dark, I tried Advantage and the dermatitis was gone in about a week and it has not returned: that was about 7 months ago. He now is also completely untroubled by fleas. I would strongly recommend this product if your pooch is prone to skin problems caused by fleas.
Bayer pet products are too expensive and ineffective!
I will no longer be using bayer flea control as it's really expensive....And doesn't work. I have used advantix for several years and it was fine, but the last few months i've had to treat my dogs every 2 weeks, and the last time i treated them it did not work at all. My dogs have been suffering because of an expensive, useless product (as well as my wallet).
Doesn't work on fleas
We have used this product for a number of years and found it worked well up until the last year. We are now finding fleas on our dogs. Even our vet had other people commenting that it now seems ineffective against fleas. We're switching to try something else now. It's too expensive not to work.
Kills fleas but smells disgusting
Although this product has always worked when I have used it on my dogs the toxic smell is horrible. Fortunately I very rarely have fleas on my 3 dogs so I no longer use any of these poisons. It's not good enough that I need to google side effects - of which there are many - because in Australia there is no requirement for this information to be provided.
Kills fleas quickly
Disgusting smell, harmful chemicals
Money well spent
I am so happy to see my dog relaxed & flea free. I switched to Advantage after finding F L totally useless & am very pleasantly surprised. Within a couple of hours after application fleas could be seen dead on my dogs coat. No more scratching, biting & whining from my beloved pet. Funny thing is salesman didn't want to sell me this product as he swore the product I had been using was the best & said I was just wasting my money. Very rude & I won't be buying from there again. I'm sure bayer would not be impressed!!
We put advantage on our 3 dogs as suggested by our vet. within a couple of days our maltese terrier was sick, and now our king charles is sick, they have lost there appetite and are lethargic, the only thing i can put it down to is the advantage, and besides all that they still have fleas :(
I believe this is pure water. It does not do anyting. We done everything that was asked by the vet, treated the house, the dog, the bedding, and the fleas are still there.
Advantage was so effective in breaking the cycle of the fleas that I have not had to use any flea protection on my dogs for the over 12 months. The money spent on this choice of flea protection has been well and truly recouped. Previously using other fleas treatments I was constantly incurring more expense as the fleas cycle was never broken. This also exposed my dogs to more chemicals than necessary. Very good value for my money and the dogs well being and money well spent.
Advantage is the only product that I have used that actually breaks th...
Advantage is a flea control only that really does work. It's not as expensive as some of the other spot ons that include worming etc, so is an economical choice for people that only wish to treat fleas, for example if they get the yearly heartworm injection, so don't need to pay twice for a product that's doing the same thing. If you live in an area that doesn't have ticks, this is definitely the one I would recommend!
Kills fleas at all stages of the life cycle. It really does work!
Doesn't treat worms, heartworm or ticks, which some of the other brands do
