I used Wondercide for the end of flea/tick season on Cuddles last year, and this year I'm trying it on all four dogs. I didn't see a single flea or tick on Cuddles when I was using it on her, which was probably from August until September or October.
I'm also going to treat the yard with Wondercide's yard treatment, so that will probably help tremendously. We have some woods right next to our yard, and there are sometimes ticks in there and occasionally in our yard.
When I was using spot-on flea/tick medicine, I would occasionally still find fleas and ticks on her (which were probably in the middle of dying). The Wondercide repels them instead of allowing them to still take a bite out of her before dying.
If you don't have cats, then Advantix would be good if you wanted to use a spot-on. It actually repels them. I am too cautious to use it on our dogs, though, since the cats and dogs occasionally groom each other. It kills cats.
Your dogs have to be at least 4 lbs to use K9 Advantix.
Spot-ons (and even pills) can occasionally cause an adverse reaction in a dog, though, especially small dogs like Chis. That's one reason I prefer using a non-pesticide product for my girl and our other dogs.
