    Advantage II Extra Large Dog tubes

    We purchased the 4 pack of the Advantage II Extra large dog flea tubes. We just started to see couple of fleas and then we knew it was a couple of fleas too late. I applied on our 1 year old Pit Bull/Mastiff who weighs about 90 pounds. I was wearing gloves and followed directions to the letter. Rubbed into her skin in the 4 point areas. Made her lay down in our kitchen, while I did the same to our other Pitt Bull male who is 100 pounds. Didn't allow dogs to go outside so they could rub off. About an hour later I checked our male Pit and looking at his behind area I saw the fleas falling off dead, I have never seen that before so I knew the medication was working. I check our female PIt and I noticed about 10 semi-living fleas on her stomach. I removed them. All appeared to be ok. Then I was relaxing in my leather recliner and in looking on the foot rest I noticed something quite strange. The leather was dissolving. This was where our female Pit was laying against after I rubbed in the medication. So this completely destroyed the foot rest part of my recliner. I will be contacting Bayer Health/Advantage Company on Monday to complain. So even thou the product works well on your pets, watch out for your furniture. BTW, I was wearing rubber gloves and they were fine.

    Waste of money for us... We used it 2 month in a row on our Miniature Sheltie and didn't even slow down the fleas... Maybe it because he's long haired but Advantage did nothing... His veterinarian ended up putting him on Comfortis!

    We have been using Advantage on our puppy since she was 10-12 weeks old and continue to use it. She has never suffered from any negative side effects, nor have we found a single flea on her. I recommend this product to anyone with pets!
