K9 advantix® II medium dog will control fleas, ticks and lice on dogs weighing 4.6 - 11 kg or less within one day of treatment and will continue to protect the dog from further flea, tick and lice infestations for at least four weeks. Reapply every month for continual pest control in situations where there is an ongoing risk of flea and tick infestation. Otherwise, treatment must only be repeated if pest problem re-occurs. If re-treatment becomes necessary earlier than 4 weeks, DO NOT re-treat more than once weekly. A veterinarian should be consulted when pest infestation continues to be a problem on the pet.

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® II medium dog rapidly kills fleas and may reduce incidence of this condition.

K9 advantix® II medium dog provides multi-stage flea control effectively breaking all flea life-cycle stages for quick and lasting control of flea populations. Fleas, flea eggs and larvae are killed following contact with a K9 advantix® II medium dog treated pet. Kills adult ticks and lice only. 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. For effective flea, tick and lice 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.

Do not shampoo or immerse the dog in water immediately after treatment. The dog can be shampooed, immersed in water or exposed to rain 3 days after treatment. The duration of protection may be shortened by shampooing, water immersion or exposure to rain. Re-application may be required after such activities.

Consult a veterinarian before using on sick, aged, pregnant or nursing animals or animals receiving drug or other pesticide treatment. DO NOT apply to dogs less than 8 weeks of age.
