Dog md maximum defense flea and tick collar

Dog md maximum defense flea and tick collar 2nd generation. I am in the process of putting 2 more 2nd generation in for my dogs and 3rd generation for my two leopards. I am considering buying several cases of the 2nd generation. I have been told that this 2nd generation is inferior to the 1st. I am in the process of researching this topic further. Anyone know if this is true?

Thanks for your reply. I am a little concerned that when the 1st generation would need to be replaced that the 1st generation would be more expensive. I don't know if this is true or not. I have read that the 2nd generation needs to be replaced when the 1st generation would. I would be willing to spend a little more if the 1st generation would be an option. Has anyone had a problem with this?

I don't think the 2nd generation is inferior to the 1st. But I know I'll get a different answer from every vet I ask.

As with the 1st generation, the 2nd generation is more expensive. And it is for that reason that the 2nd generation has not been released as a commercial product. The commercial 1st generation product cost is about $5 a month, so the price difference is considerable.

It also may be that the 3rd generation will be more expensive, since it will contn the 2nd generation.

I've always used the 2nd generation because I've been told it's slightly better than the 1st.

I just called my vet. He sd that I can buy 10 of the 2nd generation for $45 (this includes shipping). This price is reasonable and will only go up with the 3rd generation. He sd that the 3rd generation will have the same chemical as the 2nd and 1st. I did ask him if I could buy the cheaper 1st generation and he sd that I could buy the 1st for about $10 more. This makes sense to me.

I did ask him about the fact that the 2nd generation has a blue light indicator in the top corner. He sd it doesn't make a difference to his eye.

Thanks for the info.

In addition, he sd to give the 2nd generation about 30 days to see if you get the flu or something of the sort. The 1st generation does this too, so maybe this is related.

As with the 1st generation, the 2nd generation is more expensive. And it is for that reason that the 2nd generation has not been released as a commercial product. The commercial 1st generation product is currently being phased out and a 2nd generation product is avlable.

The 2nd generation will be cheaper, has a different scent (which may be a negative for some, depending on the person), and can be purchased with the option to send the pellets via USPS Priority Ml.

The mn reason the 2nd generation hasn't been released as a commercial product is because the first set was released before the 2nd generation had been optimized to maximize absorption, and thus a higher rate of health benefits.

I believe this will be the reason the higher priced 1st generation pellets will be replaced in the near future. The new 1st generation will have a lower bio-avlability. Because the bio-avlability is lower, a lower dose will be necessary for each pellet, thus increasing the cost of each pellet. The 1st generation pellet costs were $1.50 and will go down to about $1.15 once the second generation is released.

So yes, the 1st generation cost is a bit higher than the 2nd generation, however the 2nd generation will provide a larger health benefit.

So I should have wted to make that purchase!

I'll be getting the 2nd generation soon. It will give me plenty of time to make sure I am happy with the results.

In the meantime, I've got some great results from the 1st generation and hope to find out about what I can expect from the 2nd generation.

There are a couple of things that will give you an idea if the new pellets are better than the old pellets. First, the size of the pellet matter's a lot. The bigger the pellet the more the ingredients can get absorbed (and for those that know, bigger pellets means less cost for the same amount of bio-avlability).

But size is not the only important variable. Other factors include how much the pellet is shaped into a 'pill'. If the pellet is not properly shaped into a pill (a pill shape of around 3/4ths) then you can actually end up with more ingredients absorbed due to a higher surface area.

So the mn variables are pellet size and shape, but also how much moisture the pellets are exposed to (and I find that you need more pellets exposed to r in order to fully absorb the ingredients, so there is also a lot of variability in how much moisture the pellets take up).

And as a bit of a general point, I've been enjoying the results I'm seeing with the original pellets (not 'original' in the sense that they were the original pellets avlable, but I'm not sure what they're now called) but I should also mention that I've been using 'V' pellets. These pellets tend to give a higher benefit than the original pellets, and so I would suspect that the 2nd generation 'V' pellets will also provide a higher benefit than the original pellets.

My question then, is will the benefit of the 2nd generation pellet be higher than the 1st generation pellet and if so, how high? And will the benefit of the 2nd generation be so high that I would want to
