|Doc||For those who live in the SE where ticks and fleas are as common as green grass, what have you found to work best? A more natural approach or one of the systemic products? Not doing anything and waiting to remove once you find them isn't a viable option in my area.|

I want to use Advantix but I was told that it's not safe to use if you have cats. My cats cuddle with my dogs and lay in their dog beds.

I have used DE for fleas with great success. I don't live in an area rich with ticks so I don't use anything to prevent.
I really hate the idea of putting any kind of insecticide on Gus so if I run into problems down the road, I will be looking at natural treatments and preventatives.

Have always used Advantix and never had a tick or flea problem.
However, I am concerned about the amount of chemicals I'm putting on them, they do have immune type issues so am looking at doing something more natural, such as using crushed garlic and diatomaceous earth plus ACV - will see how we go.

Trifexis for fleas, but we got two ticks last summer that I had to remove, so I'm looking for options.

Advantix2. Repels bugs, not just kill them once they're on the dog. I've watched mosquitos buzz up to my dogs, hover them a minute and go away.
I put Otto and Morgan on Frontline for 2 years because of the cat. Advantix is poisonous to cats. Penny was always rubbing Morgan's legs, they were tight. The October right after Morgan died, we had the worst flea infestation. So bad the cat got them and Otto broke out in a horrifying rash. Cat has no use for Otto and she seems to appreciate the 3 day separation period when I put Advantix on the dogs. No fleas last year!
