I have 4 dogs: 2 chihuahuas, 1 Shih Tzu, 1 Yorkie, I just applied Pet Armor to all 4 dogs. I'll let you know in 48 hours! I also have 4 cats and am applying the cat version on them. will respond on that as well.

Costco also sells Frontline Plus, I think it's about $37-38 for a 3-pk. What we do is buy the larger size and divide it among our small dogs, it's quite a savings (you need a syringe w/o a needle to apply it, they also sell Frontline kits on eBay that you can re-use once you get the syringe). Can't divide the h/w preventative though as it's a different concentrations but w/ the liquid Frontline, you can (and I imagine w the Pet Armor which we've yet to try, prob. will once we run out of Frontline). Just a thought.

In a pinch I will purchase the Pet Armor Plus from Walmart. The flea and tick season is in full swing here in Florida so its very important to keep the dogs protected. Best of luck!

I recently rescued a german shepherd and discovered she has a small tick problem. I have never had to deal with ticks before. If they are already on her, aside from manually pulling them out, do these kinds of products work for that or are they just a preventative?

How to Remove a Tick: Safely Removing Ticks from Dogs, Cats and other Pets

Far as I know, the spot-treatments are preventatives. You need to remove the present ticks, but do it properly.

thanks for the info! i did not really any of this. i am so frustrated for her ....Can a vet or groomer remove them? I know, stupid question, but I really havent dealt w this problem before. We had a flea epidemic 2 summers ago, that was heinous but pales in comparison to this tick drama.

She should be fine ....going forward, use one of the vet-approved/prescription-type flea and tick preventatives. There are several threads on this forum about them. Also heartworm preventative! Very important.
