Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.
I am so sorry your two Beagles are not feeling well. It sounds like they potentially could be having a reaction to the advantage. They have not had any vomiting nor diarrhea, correct? Gums are nice and pink and moist?
Since they go to doggy daycare we always have to consider the possibility of picking up a bug from the daycare facility just as children do when they go to school.
Do you have an ability to take their temperatures? Are they getting any better or worse since you first noted signs?
Any additional information will be very helpful in hopefully getting them feeling better soon...
