I have friends who use both, and have had great luck with them. My friend Lori uses Frontline and combines it with the Preventic collar. She trains on a schedule and can put the collars on several hours before they go out. She does not leave the collars on if the dogs are not being supervised, as they will try to use the collars to haul each other around.
Also, she spoke to a sales rep about using the collars and Frontline/Advantix together. He said it was fine, and very common in fact. But, he did tell her not to use the collars during or right after applying the spot on treatment. He said to wait until the spot on treatment had dried and dispersed before using a collaar. Apparently the oil in the collars will attract the spot on treatment, which will migrate to the collar instead of dispersing through the skin and hair follicles. If the spot on migrates to the collar, of course it means that your treatment was useless.
