Which one should i use?
I was using advantix on my 5lbs yorkie one a month but recently i took him grooming to petsmart and they told me he had ticks, they took them out of him but im now concern if i should continue using thath brand. It looks the same as advantage, i read and both of them dont work for ticks only for fleas. I went to the vet and he was selling me a $80 prescription that works for fleas and ticks but i thinks its a lot of money, can remember the name, think it was advantage. Can you guys help me?? i saw hartz and its really cheap but they say it kills dogs, so dont get why they sell it.

Advantage is fleas only.
Advantix just adds permethrin to kill ticks also.
The Advantix should be working.
You could try Frontline Plus and if that doesn't work, Vectra 3D although anything with permethrin I would try to avoid.
