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. This single treatment is used for controlling and killing multiple parasites. It protects dogs from diseases caused by these parasites. 98.5% ticks die within two hours of application of K9 Advantix. It is safe to use this product on dogs over 7 weeks old.
Imidacloprid and Permethrin are the active ingredients in K9 Advantix. Their synergy results in the 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.
This is really faster method to eliminate ticks. I have started using this product sometime back a few months ago and now I don't have to tackle with constant tick infestation. Happy that my lab and spaniel don't scratch anymore. Thanks best vet care team for advising me to use this product.
Excellent product and a great price. Advantix is fast acting and effective. I found it has to be applied at least every 3 weeks though, but it is significantly better than Frontline & Frontline Plus.
Lulu is quite sensitive and anything on her body greatly irritates her. But, trying advantix I was much relaxed as she got less irritated and scratched less. Slowly the product was going along with her body and no more mosquito or flea bites also. Thanks Mike to recommend this product. Good for Lulu.
