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.
I have been using this product since my doggie was a puppy and I have never seen fleas on my pooch....Not even any side effects of the treatment.
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.
Every summer season my dog suffers from fleas. My vet suggested me Advantix. I tried it on my doggy and it worked perfectly well. I am glad that a single treatment will protect him from flea infestation for a whole month.
