Compare Frontline Plus for Dogs & Advantage II for Dogs

Advantage II for dogs controls existing flea infestations on your dog and prevents further infestations from occurring. Advantage II contains 9.1% Imidacloprid, plus an insect growth regulator Pyriproxyfen and works on contact, so that fleas don’t have to bite your dog to die.
I have a pug/boxer/english bulldog mix pup. Shes 7 months and a doll. But she has a horrible flea allergy. Frontline plus did nothing (and this product was legit) even after we treated our home. Will be switching to Advantage as it kills fleas before they bite. Frontline may work for those dogs without a flea allergy but otherwise, I’d go with Advantage. Our vet was going to recommend Nexgard but with Lucy’s allergies, nope.

Advantage II for Dogs - BayerDVM
Advantage II is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs. Plus, it kills fleas through contact, which means fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Advantage II also treats, prevents, and controls lice on dogs. Advantage II does not kill ticks, so we recommend using the along with Advantage II (dogs only). Advantage II for small cats 5-9 lbs can also be used for ferrets weighing 1 lb or over and 10 weeks of age or older.K9 Advantix is another flea treatment produced by Bayer, but this product uses Imidacloprid coupled with Permethrin. This addition is lethal to the physiology of cats, and K9 Advantix should never be used on a cat. However, the product is safe to use on dogs over 7 weeks of age, and the addition of Permethrin makes a huge difference on the efficacy of pest repellent. K9 Advantix will ward off fleas as well as ticks and mosquitoes, and unlike Frontline Plus, is extremely effective against all three pests. However, the reason it is more effective is because it contains stronger chemicals, and although it is generally safe for use on your dog, there are other factors to consider. There are minimal side effects reported for Advantage or Frontline Plus, whereas there have been some side effects noted for dogs on K9 Advantix. Also, you will need to restrict contact to your dog for a few days after treatment, which is hard when you have kids. If you own a cat that could be trouble, as the cat may decide to groom your dog and get sick. K9 Advantix is more effective because it is a stronger treatment, and you may want to try other treatments first before pulling out the big guns.The real differences between these products come from the active chemical ingredients that ward off pests on your pet. Frontline Plus uses a combination of S-Methoprene and Fipronil, and as such has the power to ward off fleas as well as ticks. It is important to note however that Frontline Plus is an excellent repellent for fleas and not so great for ticks, especially when comparing it to something like K9 Advantix. However, these chemicals are safe for use on dogs and cats that are more than eight weeks old. Furthermore, Frontline Plus claims to be safe on lactating or pregnant pets as well, which cannot be said for the other two products in question. Thus Frontline Plus is generally safe and effective for flea prevention. It is an excellent choice for long lasting flea control or prevention for dogs or cats, and is an especially good choice for females who are pregnant or lactating.
