Except for this one. Mine swims a lot during the summer and Advantix just didn't do the job. This one works great and I can let her swim as much as she wants and not worry about the topical kind washing off. A little cheaper too, but doesn't protect against ticks.

I honestly don't worry about fleas-rarely have a problem with them. But I have to have something that will get the ticks.

I use all year, Virginia, and purchase via the vet which was nice because as Noah gained weight I could buy single doses or multiple. They even took back my unused items when Noah had a growing spree.

Like others have said it only takes a few warm days for these critters to come out. We found tics in Nov/Dec in VA.
