I asked the same thing and two different vets and a large pet supply company told me that the American Dog Tick would be the hardest to control/kill and since it covers them it will cover all ticks under them. It pretty much came down to it being about the wording on the label. I was comfortable with that because it came from three different sources. It's all made by the same people that make frontline, which I have never had problems with and I trust them as a company.

I am interested in the product. But, I would like to know about it first.

llombardo I will be giving it 4 months out of the tick season. I have already put the Scalibor collars on them. I will also be using a homemade repellant. I better not see one tick after all this

Stosh A friend gave her dog a dose of it for the first time last weekend- vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy and a trip to the ER.
