Yuki HATES his flea and tick med
Yuki, my 10 month old golden, HATES to have me put on his monthly flea and tick med (K-9 Advantix). Every month when it's time to put it on, he runs and hides. He is not a fearful dog, and has no problem with anything else I ever have to do to him. I just hate having to put pesticide on him monthly, and it makes me feel like I am doing something that could be possibly hurting him. Does everyone else out there use these monthly treatments?
Yuki was vaccinated against Lyme disease, because we have a farm in another state that we visit several times a year, and there are so many deer and deer ticks there. We do not have fleas around where I live as far as I know. I'm just wondering if it might be OK to forego these monthly applications of pesticide, though my vet seems to think they are necessary.
I just wonder if Yuki knows something that I don't, and if this is really hurting him somehow, if he'd be better off without it.
