I use Advantix II. I'm not fond of topicals, but I've gotten used to it. I hate ticks much more. I personally do not like using new preventatives on my dog. I like to see how dogs do after a lifetime on them before I put my dog on them. As much as I love the idea of Bravecto, it came out right around the time that Shala was born, so she will never get it.
With the ever warmer winters, I'm using it almost year round now. Only January and February were off months this year; only February last year. Anytime it's warmer than about 4 degrees, ticks can be active.
