Product Information

The successive feeding activity of fleas on dogs may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of dogs with K9 Advantix® II rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.

K9 Advantix® II kills existing fleas on dogs after initial application within 12 hours. Reinfesting fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further flea infestation lasting at least four (4) weeks. Pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for six (6) weeks or longer depending upon the climatic conditions.

K9 Advantix® II is waterproof after 24 hours and remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming or after exposure to rain or sunlight.

To successfully prevent and control fleas and ticks, all dogs must be treated with their own dose of K9 Advantix® II.

Apply according to label instructions, ensuring that the product is applied to the skin, not on top of the fur.

If your dog wears a decorative collar, it may be helpful to remove the collar before application, so it doesn’t absorb the product.

Remember, your dog needs to be dry at the time K9 Advantix® II is applied and remains dry 24 hours after application.

Even indoor dogs need protection against fleas and ticks because you or other pets in the household may bring fleas and ticks into the home. Fleas in your dog’s environment can reinfest your dog. If you have a flea infestation, consider treating your home and yard with appropriate premise products to protect against fleas.

Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas and ticks.
