For those of you concerned with seizures, I've been seeing a lot of chatter about people who report correlating their dogs seizures with applications of these products. From what I can find, these stories are anecdotal at best and no reputable vet or medical/chemical study has been able to prove this correlation. The information I could find on the individual chemicals (especially Fipronol) does list seizures as a sign of poisoning from the chemical, but to be poisoned, the dog needs many times the normal dosage. The cases found usually included small dogs that were given multiple large dog doses, or cats that were given doses meant for dogs, etc. I bring this up because I once thought that this was true. My dog has epilepsy and has been on meds to control seizures for several years. My wife once noticed that she had a seizure on the night of an application of the Costco brand version of Frontline, which we used for the first time in two years (we only use this stuff when needed, not as a regular regimen), and after a few minutes of web surfing, was sure that it was the cause. Six months later, she got fleas again, flea baths weren't working, and so I decided to look into it and give this stuff a try again. I waited until she had a seizure and then applied the dose a day or two later. It's been several weeks and she's still not had another seizure. Being that she typically has one every month, it's safe to say that this medicine hasn't increased her frequency and certainly doesn't cause them outright or immediately.
I maintain that pesticides like these should only be used when the dog needs it. If they don't have fleas or ticks, why pour a monthly pesticide on them? However, if your dog is an outside dog, or regularly gets exposed to situations where fleas and ticks are common, than there's no harm in preventing an infestation before it occurs.
We haven't had any ticks either yet several neighbors have complained about their dogs having multiple ticks this year. So far this has been a great product for an excellent price! It has worked much better than K9 Advantix II did for us.
