What makes Advantix II Special?
The two active ingredients imidacloprid and permethrin are often used
alone as effective treatments against parasites. However, the
combination Advantix formula works synergistically to provide more
protection than each of these ingredients alone. Together, they
complement one another to enhance their effectiveness and provide
complete protection against fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
The active ingredient imidacloprid is an EPA approved topical
insecticide that kills adult fleas by disrupting their nervous system.
Fleas in their larval stages are also killed when they come in contact
with the treated pet or their immediate surroundings. Permethrin is a
synthetic pyrethrin compound commonly used to kill flying insects,
fleas, and ticks. EPA approved for use in dogs, permethrin affects the
nervous system of parasites, causing repetitive nerve firings that
eventually paralyze and kill them. Permethrin is longer lasting and more
stable than natural pyrethrin. For this reason, it is commonly found in
repellents, premise sprays, and in products intended for slower, but
sustained action. K9 Advantix II takes advantage of these properties to
offer superior protection against fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
Protection Against Fleas
K9 Advantix II stops fleas from biting in less than 5 minutes and kills
98-100% of fleas on your dog within 12 hours of application. K9 Advantix
II kills fleas before they have a chance to lay eggs and also kills
flea larva before they develop into biting fleas - thus breaking the
flea life cycle. Re-infesting fleas are killed within 2 hours for
reliable treatment against fleas of all stages. In many instances
Advantix II is so effective it kills fleas before they have a chance to
bite your pet, preventing conditions such as Flea Allergy Dermatitis.
Protection Against Ticks
K9 Advantix II repels and kills Deer Ticks, American Dog Ticks, Lone
Star Ticks, and Brown Dog Ticks before they can latch onto your pet. It
repels up to 98% of ticks to dramatically reduce disease spread by
Protection Against Mosquitoes
K9 Advantix II repels and kills mosquitoes before they can bite and
needless to say, mosquitoes that don't bite can't annoy dogs or transmit
disease. Research demonstrates K9 Advantix II kills up to 98.3% of
mosquitoes and reduces their feeding up to 95.2%.
K9 Advantix II remains effective after swimming or bathing. Even after
repeated swims, or bathing it remains an effective treatment.
K9 Advantix II is a monthly topical treatment that is easily applied
between your pet's shoulder blades. One application, applied along the
back in two to six spots (depending on size of dog), will stop fleas
from biting in 3 to 5 minutes and is gentle enough for puppies (7 weeks
or older) and dogs of all sizes. (See package directions.)
