Advantage Multi

    So here's a question that I've asked about a million people including my vet , and the vet said she's heard of this problem rarely but it doesnt sound serious from what she's seen....

    I use Advantage multi for chico and mia and it protects against heart worms, fleas, round worm, hook worm, etc...basically every parasite that you have to worry about...They NEVER get worms or FLEAS and i mean NEVER....and that is a big feat and accomplishment living in Florida where these parasites run amuck and cause serious issues all year round...and this is with me taking them to dogs parks and walks and everything...

    I've noticed that the morning after and for a few days after I dose them with the advantage multi once a month solution, their breath smells metallic and mediciney smelling and it comes out in their poop too...anyone have this problem or heard of it? I've researched it online and found nothing!

    So basically my question is , IS there a product out there that does all the same protection all in one like ADVANTAGE MULTI that I can try and see if this does away with that odd smell? OR should I try going the route of using 1 thing for heartworms and other worms, and 1 thing for fleas and ticks?

    If you are that concerned about it then try switching to something else like Vectra 3D or Revolution. But if you can deal with it then let it go - personally I would be switching.

    ive heard and seen dogs have nasty reactions to flea treatment, thats why i wouldnt switch if it covers everything and its just a smell. your dog may react poorly to something else.

    thats basically what the vet said, if its just a smell then if you can deal with it its fine..... Im gonna deal with it, i didnt know if they made a similar product by sentinel or something else

    It could be a side effect. If you want to keep with the product you could get some bloodwork done to see if it is effecting them internally. Just a thought.

    I would not use Sentinel in a high flea area. Those that live in areas where they actually have a winter it is fine. Sentinel does not kill the fleas. Basically it is a flea birth control.

    thanks for the tip, florida is a high flea area, advantage multi kills those damn buggers right on the spot and its worked great in that capacity, and the fact that my dogs have never got worms
