Anthony, are the spot on tick products still the most reliable way to prevent ticks on dogs. We live on the Queensland sunshine coast and use advantix on our long coated Border Collie. We have noticed some new monthly chewable products on the market but wonder if they have been proven effective. The advantix seems to cause a reaction on the skin - no rash but the dog really does not like having it put on and tries to rub it on the walls, us and the furniture for hours after application. Placing it in one spot or a few spots doesn't seem to make any difference. thanks, Karen
