K9 Advantix is a topical monthly spot-on treatment that protects dogs against fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, sand flies, stable flies, chewing lice and biting insects. It prevents external parasites by paralyzing, debilitating, killing and repelling them. It is the single treatment used for controlling and killing multiple parasites. It protects the dogs from diseases caused by these parasites.
K9 Advantix is a topical treatment that rapidly kills various external parasites. Use on 7 weeks and older puppies and dogs for destroying parasites that can cause diseases and stress. Imidacloprid and Permethrin are the active ingredients in K9 Advantix. Their synergy results in effective killing of the fleas and ticks. In addition, it also has repelling action called the ‘hot foot’ activity on ticks that stops them from sticking on the treated dog’s body.
Permethrin attacks parasite’s nervous system and blocks sodium channels responsible for nerve impulses. This leads to hyper-excitation, paralysis and death. Ticks die due to the insecticidal action but remain attached to the pet’s body. 98.5% ticks die within two hours of application of K9 Advantix. It remains effective for a month and prevents re-infestations.
