K9 advantix® 55 Flea and Tick Adulticide will control fleas and ticks on dogs within one day of treatment and will continue to protect the dog from further flea and tick infestation for at least four weeks. Reinfestation from the emergence of new fleas and ticks in the environment may continue to occur for six weeks or longer after treatment is initiated. Retreatment at monthly intervals is required if reinfestation is continuous or if flea and tick control is desired. If re-treatment becomes necessary earlier than 4 weeks, do not retreat more than once weekly.
For effective flea and tick control, treatment of the pet should be combined with the sanitation of any area used by the pet. Vacuum floors, carpets, and furniture (discard vacuum bag after use) and wash the pet’s bedding, living quarters, and surrounding areas. If pest problems persist an insecticidal premise treatment may be required.
Shampooing of the dog may shorten the duration of protection, therefore, re-application following shampooing is recommended.
The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of pets with K9 advantix® 55 Flea and Tick Adulticide rapidly kills fleas and may reduce incidence of this condition.
For use on pregnant/lactating animals consult your veterinarian.
