I have had sores develop on using advantix under the application spot.

My theory:

The undercoat of the dog's coat soaks up the oil of the product and sits above the skin. moisture gets under the oil layer causing a sore. Have found this particular if I have done a couple of spots down the dogs back. has happened on a couple of collies. I do part the fur and apply to the skin, however bcs undercoat can be quite thick and some will naturally absorb some of the product.

I spoke to the company who makes advanntix, they said I had hot spots and it not have been their product.

I don't use top spots for ticks. Frontline is useless, Advantix not much better. In all honesty, I don't think the tick collars are much chop either. I just make sure they are checked twice daily for ticks.

I only use Advantix when I have to and have never had a problem with my cocker spaniel. I guess every dog is different.

I just met a dog at the park today who had an severely adverse reaction to Advantix - her neck had this gaping hole in it. It looked awful, the poor thing. Apparently there are new tick collars the vets are recommending.
