How to use

Directions to use Advantix for Dogs                                                                               

K9 Advantix must be used as a spot-on application on your dog's skin:

  • For use on dogs only. Not to be used on cats or any other animal
  • For ease of application it's best to apply it when your dog is standing
  • Use the entire contents of the pipette/ tube of Advantix - only one applicator tube to be used per treatment
  • For dogs weighing under 20 lbs (9 kg) the entire applicator contents can be squeezed onto 2 - 3 spots on the back, from between the shoulder blades to the base of the tail
  • Dogs weighing over 21 lbs (9.1 kg) should have the entire applicator contents squeezed onto 4 - 6 spots from between the shoulder blades to the base of the tail
  • Devide the contents of the applicator tube evenly between the spots on the dog's back, avoiding any wastage or run-off
  • Part the fur until you can see the skin & place the applicator tip on the skin. The gently apply a portion of the tube directly onto the dog's skin
  • Keep your cat away from your treated dog for the first 12 hours after applying K-9 Advantix

How to open

Remove a single pipette/ applicator from the package. Hold the applicator upright, twist the cap and pull it off. Then turn around the cap, placing the opposite end of the cap back onto the pipette. Now proceed by twisting the cap again to break the seal. Finally you must remove the cap from the application pipette - and your good to go!

Treatment Tips & Recommendations

Preventing re-infestation with new fleas is essential so it's best to treat all the dogs in your home. Other pets living in your home should also be given a suitable flea product. For cats with fleas you can use CAPSTAR  or   ADVANTAGE For Cats.

Water exposure and your treated dog:

It's important to realize that the product always remains effective even if your dog gets wet. Prolonged water exposure does have some effect though and can reduce efficacy, so if  possible it should be avoided. If frequent water exposure is unavoidable then your dog can be retreated, but remember not to retreat more often than once a week. If your dog smells and needs a good shampooing, then it's a good idea to do this before applying Advantix - or alternatively, wait until two weeks after the application to ensure the product performs as expected.

The Facts About Fleas, Ticks, Mosquitoes and Biting Flies

Advantix repels and kills – that’s why it’s different   

Conventional flea and tick remedies destroy fleas and ticks only after they bite your dog’s skin and ingest the medication that circulates in your pet’s bloodstream that kills them. But Advantix for dogs is different. It repels and kills fleas & ticks, and repels sand flies, stable flies and mosquitoes even before they are able to bite your dog.

With less biting there is less risk of serious disease transmission

Due to it’s ability to repel parasites, K9 Advantix reduces bites and this means there is less risk of disease exposure and stress for your dog. This is much more effective than conventional flea and tick remedies which only kill the  parasites once they have bitten your pet. Conventional remedies only kill but K-9 Advantix repels and kills.

Your dog’s health is constantly endangered by serious parasite-borne diseases like Lyme disease (transmitted by ticks) and Heartworm disease (transmitted by mosquitoes). During the process of blood sucking, these parasites will transmit these dangerous pathogens to your dog through their saliva. That's why it is so important to remember that killing the parasites is not enough, because they should also be stopped from being able to bite your pet.

Facts on Fleas

A flea infestation is known as the most common parasitic condition that affects dogs and cats in North America and all over the world.  The dog flea (Ctenocephalides canis) and the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) are the main flea species of pets worldwide.

It’s a well known fact that flea bites cause severe itching and discomfort to your pet. And if left untreated, fleas often cause more serious medical problems in dogs, which can include tapeworms and allergic reactions also known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). This condition can cause hair loss in your pet, as well as skin inflammation, irritation, and continuous severe scratching. If present in large numbers, fleas can even cause anemia (from blood loss) and this can ultimately be fatal, especially if your dog is young, frail, or very small in size.


Flea life cycle -The flea life cycle develops through 4 stages, first starting with an egg, followed by a larval stage,  then a pupa and finally the adult stage. The flea life cycle can be completed quickly, in 14 days or less, but can also take as long as 6 months depending on the weather in your area (heat and humidity in your environment). Advantix kills fleas & flea larvae for up to 4 weeks after treatment has been given.

 Facts on Ticks

Ticks are the second most common parasite that are found on dogs. Many tick species are found around the world and they can infest pets in large numbers. Ticks are blood sucking parasites and are mostly found in tall grass. When your dog goes for a walk they attach themselves to the passing animal. Ticks have harpoon like mouth parts that allow them to attach themselves firmly to your dog’s skin while sucking blood from their hosts.

Ticks are also dangerous vectors of many diseases. An infected tick can carry the organisms that cause Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and many types of ehrlichiosis, as well as many other potentially fatal diseases.

K9 Advantix repels and kills all the commonly found ticks that pose a danger to your pet, like Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Lone Star ticks and Brown dog ticks.

Facts on Mosquitoes

Many species of mosquitoes can be found across the USA and they can be a problem all year round if temperatures and humidity are favorable. Mosquitoes are mostly merely an annoyance, but it’s important to remember that they can spread viruses, protozoa, and other pathogens like worms to our pets.

Mosquitoes do feed on blood and the female mosquito actually needs to ingest blood to be able to proceed with normal egg production. But because mosquitoes are common carriers of diseases, it is very important to keep them away from your pet. Mosquito transmitted diseases are a major issue when it comes to maintaining the health of your dog, especially because mosquitoes can pass on the parasite that causes heartworm disease in dogs.

That’s why the ability of K-9 Advantix to repel and kill mosquitoes on your dog is so important.

Facts on Biting Flies

Another major threat to your dog comes in the form of other biting insects such as sand flies and stable flies. Sand flies are widely spread around many regions in the US and worldwide, especially areas with warm temperate, subtropical and tropical cl mates. The importance of sand flies is due to the health hazard they pose to your pet, which results from the ability they possess to transmit viral, bacterial & protozoal diseases.

Biting flies are known to cause severe stress to pets. Their bites cause major irritation of wounds which through continued scratching, can lead to other secondary bacterial infections. Advantix for dogs is great for repelling and preventing biting flies from blood feeding on your dog.
