    Default K9 Advantix II Flea & Tick Control


    What is K9 Advantix II?

    K9 Advantix II is a monthly preventative for dogs that offers comprehensive protection against ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, biting flies and chewing lice. K9 Advantix II is a top veterinarian-recommended brand because it repels and kills all life stages of fleas (eggs, pupae, larvae, and adult fleas) and ticks (Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks, and Lone Star ticks). K9 Advantix II kills 98-100 percent of fleas within 12 hours and continues working for one month to prevent infestations.

    For: Dogs and Puppies (only over 7 weeks of age or older)

    Repels and kills fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes
    Kills 98-100 percent of adult fleas within 12 hours
    Ends flea life cycle by prevents flea offspring (eggs, pupae, and larvae) from maturing into adult fleas
    Repels biting flies and kills chewing lice
    Provides one month of protection against ticks, fleas, mosquitoes, biting flies
    Repels disease-carrying mosquitoes before they bite
    Waterproof - continues working even after your dog becomes wet

    How it works:
    K9 Advantix II combines imidacloprid and permethrin to repel and kill fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Both ingredients work on contact, attacking parasite nerve cells at different sites. Together these ingredients overwhelm the nervous system killing the parasite. Pyriproxyfen is an insect growth regulator. K9 Advantix II topical solution also repels biting flies and kills lice.

    DO NOT USE ON CATS. Cats cannot metabolize the ingredients used in this product. Cats must be separated from dogs during treatment. Do not allow your cat to come in contact with a treated dog for 24 hours. Some small and medium dogs may have an adverse skin reaction. See our K9 Advantix II Adverse Reactions page for symptoms and treatment of adverse skin reactions.

    How this product should be used: For use only on dogs. Do not use on cats or on other animals. Have the dog standing for easy application.

For dogs 21 lbs and over, apply the entire contents of the applicator tube to 4 or 6 spots on the top of the back from the shoulder to the base of the tail. If the household has cats or other animals, separate from the treated dog for about 1 hour until the product is thoroughly dry.

    What are the side effects: A sensation of burning, tingling, itching or numbness of the skin may occur after topical application. This sensation usually begins 1-2 hours after application and should usually go away on its own within 1-3 days. Shampooing the skin gently, but well with a shampoo such as Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and rinsing very well should help the pet feel better, sooner.

Due to their unique physiology and inability to metabolize certain compounds, this product must not be used on cats. If applied to a cat, or ingested by a cat which actively grooms a recently treated dog, this product may have serious harmful effects. If this occurs, contact your veterinarian immediately. It is important to apply this product no more than once a month and to use the correct strength for the weight of the dog. This product is harmful to humans if swallowed.

    Got rid of the fleas with no problem and kept them off, too! But left a bald spot on my bully. The vet said it was very common with this brand.

    I used this stuff for many years with no problems but a family member used it on their boston terrier and she lost her fur and had red skin at the application site. I am trying a natural route now...but I found 1 flea the other day. Yikes....if I find more I guess I'll have to apply advantix again. When I did use this I only used it during the summer and not every month.
