We pulled a tick (not attached, thank goodness) off of Watson’s head today :banghead: A couple of days above freezing, and the buggers are marching across the lawn already. I hate them!!! :redhot:

Anyway, I need to switch away from Frontline Plus; it’s just not handling the sheer volume of ticks we have up here anymore. Do you guys have opinions about the relative abilities of Advantix vs. Vectra in terms of both repelling and killing ticks specifically? (Fleas have not been as great an issue.)

And are there still concerns about Vectra and skin burns, or has it been decided that they occur only if the product isn’t applied correctly?

I wish there were long-term studies about their possible carcinogenic properties, too, but I guess they’re too new? What to do, what to do...:confused:
