Do you spray Permetherin on your dogs even though we give them advantix?

My bottle of 36.8% permethrin as well as the 10% Martins has instructions for dogs. DO NOT USE ON CATS! I believe Permethrin is very bad to cats (and fish IIRC - so don't let run off go into streams or ponds or fish bowls/tanks)

 

"Do not use on dogs under 12 weeks old"

 

Check the label for more details - but the labeling has explicit instructions for use on dogs. When in doubt, talk to your vet before applying.

 

Here's the Martin's label - see around page 18 : http://www.domyownpe...in 10 Label.pdf

FWIW .... years ago, my breeder, who also is a vet that publishes through Virginia Tech U, told me to go ahead and use a Preventic collar, in addition to the topical I was using, when I told her that the tick situation was really bad.

Best bet is to talk to your vet. But I just looked at the label of this Advantix - http://fleascience.c...Advantix-II.pdf - and it already has Permethrin (at 44%). So, to me, it doesn't make sense to combine the two. You'd be putting permethrin on your dog twice - I doubt a double dose is something you'd want to apply to a dog and it probably wouldn't help be more effective anyway. But, I only slept at a Holiday Inn last night so.... I'd talk to your vet.

I get that Martin's which is the 10% stuff and non-petroleum based - you mix 1 gallon of water with 7 oz of that and you get 0.52% solution - virtually the same percentage of permethrin (a little bit more actually) of the Sawyers stuff (which is 0.5%).

 

For the math-averse, just use a 19:1 water to permethrin ratio in any quantity you want to arrive at a perfect 0.5% solution.

 

Do you spray Permetherin on your dogs even though we give them advantix?
 

 

You cant spray Sawyers on your dogs, you need to make a batch yourself diluted even further than 0.5%.  The 0.5% mix is for clothing.   

 

If you're going to spray it on your dogs, you need to dilute it down to 0.05% or TEN TIMES less powerful than store bought 0.5% Sawyers.   They say don't spray it on puppies or cats either.

I was just re-reading the Advantix II pamphlet as I re-apply it to my dog. It states that it repels and kills ticks for up to ​four weeks.

,

It also states that in severe pest infestations, more frequent retreatment is allowable. But, not more than once every seven days.

 

I think I'm going to apply it to my dog every 3 weeks or so, during spring/summer/fall.

 

(BTW, I ordered it from Amazon yesterday at noon. Free same day shipping. It came about 8pm last night. Price as low as anyone. How does Amazon do it? I think they're going to take over the world! lol)

I've been using this for many years on my dogs, and have been happy with it. But, I'll try something new.

 

I had Lyme Disease about 16 years ago. Before it was was easily diagnosed. Never saw the tick, never saw a rash. Evil, little bastards.

I havnt used the Adams spray but heard good things about it. I just started using this along with the topical treatment. So far so good...

We just buy bottles of peppermint oil and rub the dogs down with it every couple of weeks. We put it in their dog shampoo too.  It seems to do the trick.  They say to put garlic in their food as well.   

 

Before the peppermint oil, we used to use frontline and whatever the other one was and it never did a damn thing. Both dogs still had ticks on them, fat and full of blood.     

 

I'm considering trying the bravecto pill for the dog I have now though.  For some reason, he is an absolute tick magnet.  My other dog almost never had a tick on him.  It was super rare. We'd maybe pull 2-3 off of him each year.  With this guy, we pull ticks off of him at least 2-3 times per week.  It's insane.

I use the same tool.  I also get the 10% permethrin from tractor supply.  It's petroleum based, but that's what you want to treat your clothes.  The petroleum base bonds better to clothing, and won't wash out as fast as water base when laundered.  I use 1oz in a 28oz spray bottle, and it's been working good. I'll spray clothes heavily about once a month, and just give them a mist touch-up after a few washes.  Most of my clothes will get washed after every hunt.  I also do my lawn with it.  According to the label, it is safe unless your lawn runs off directly into a waterway, then water base should be used.  I spray early in the spring when it's too cold for bees, and before the clover blossom, or it will destroy bee colonies.  I'll mist my boots each time I get out of the truck for a hike.  It doesn't do any harm since it can't soak through the boots to my skin.

They work, the idea is that the ticks get scared of having their pincers ripped off or something so they let go, we use them on our dog and ourselves if they've been there for awhile so they you don't get all that nasty stuff their carrying into the wound. Yeah they're worth the money.

I  have one or used to have one similar to the one both Barrels posted minus the cup, they were free at either the Rockland or Edison show. Never squeeze, pinch or use heat.
