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. The topical treatment kills fleas and ticks just by contact. The single treatment controls various external parasites and prevents secondary diseases transmitted due to fleas and ticks. Advantix remains effective for one full month and is safe to use for dogs and puppies over 7 weeks of age.
K9 Advantix - How it works?
Imidacloprid and Permethrin are the active ingredients present in K9 Advantix. The combined effect of the ingredients helps in eliminating fleas and ticks. The ingredients attack their nervous system and blocks sodium channels responsible for nerve impulses. This leads to hyper-excitation, paralysis, and death. Additionally, due to the repelling action called the ‘ hot foot’ activity, the topical treatment repels ticks and stops them from sticking on the treated dogs.

Imidacloprid and Permethrin
Best and effective product
This is a very good product recommended by my vet. It works well and kill fleas very quickly. I have used this product many times on my furry pal. It is very effective, not messy and no side effects on my pooch. I would recommend this product, if you are frustrated with other brands.
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.
Found this one to be better and much more effective.
