pineapple Posted March 19, 2017 Report Share Posted March 19, 2017 My old dog was on Advocate (flea/worm preventative) in her early years which contains moxidectin and imidacloprid. I switched to other products when someone said it was a risk as 30/40% of collies carry a gene which makes them sensitive to ivermectin, moxidectin and other drugs. I must admit I was never comfortable with dosing with a systemic insecticide anyway. Ben the new dog was given Advocate while in the Rescue and I am trying to decide whether to continue with it. Vets here seem to push Advocate - border collie or not. Just wondered whether anyone had their dog tested or avoids certain drugs 'just in case'.
