Any experience out there with the new topical protections for dogs?


There are some relatively new products on the market which when applied to dogs both controls fleas and protects them against heart worms. My Yorkie will not eat the Heartgard...no way!

    Our Yorkie, "Cash Money" seems to have a very fined tuned nose for Heartgard no matter what it is wrapped in. His sister, a Shih Tsu, name "Callie" eats it like candy. Cash can sniff the stuff out through a steel wall! He is very paticular!

    The Advantage product was the one we were considering...long term experience with it. We were fearing the potential for kidney damage.
