Advocate or Frontline Combo?

Experiences good and bad please! TIA

Just a warning re Advocate - I heard of a collie cross lurcher (11mo) dieing almost certainly as a result of Advocate treatment recently - apparently some collies are sensitive to it - I don't know whether this is also to front line.

Oh no, that's awful, poor dog. How very sad.

I have used both products for over 6 months, so I assume my dog is OK with either.

I haven't used any treatment at all over the winter - dog hasn't needed it. I will make sure we're up to date when we get anywhere that has ticks though.

I just logged on to post about fleas. Bob has them. <boak>

He had Eliminall from vets about 8 days ago and i'm still seeing small (baby?) fleas on him. Why the hell isn't the eliminall working!
