How it works?
A Bayer product, K9 Advantix is a highly powerful monthly spot-on treatment for 7 weeks and older puppies and dogs. It kills and controls broad spectrum of external parasites including fleas, American dog ticks, brown dog ticks, lone star ticks, deer ticks, mosquitoes, biting lice, flies and insects. It uses ‘hot foot’ mechanism to prevent ticks from being attached to the treated dog’s body.
The joint action of active ingredients Imidacloprid and Permethrin kills fleas within 24 hours and ticks within 48 hours. The newly formed fleas and tick life stages are destroyed within 2 hours. The ingredients obstruct the sodium channels of the parasites leaving them paralyzed and dead.
K9 advantix is available in four different color-coded packs.
- Green pack – for puppies and dogs weighing between 1 and 10 lbs.
- Aqua pack – for medium sized dogs weighing between 11 and 20 lbs.
- Red pack – for large sized dogs weighing between 21-55 lbs

For application, follow the given steps:
Step1: Make the pet stand comfortably. Part his fur between the shoulder blades to create a bare skin spot.
Step2: Invert the open K9 Advantix tube such that its tip touches the skin spot. Squeeze out the content at this spot.
Step3: For larger dogs with weight more than 20 lbs, apply at 3-4 spots starting from spot between the shoulder blades and move across the backbone. Let the applied site be completely dry.
