Product Detail: K9 Advantix
Advantix For Dogs
Advantix for dogs is a spot-on treatment with wide ranging effects.
- It kills fleas and flea larvae in the environment for 4 weeks
- Repels and kills the paralysis tick for 2 weeks
- Repels and kills the brown dog tick and bush tick for 1 month
- Repels and kills mosquitoes and sandflies for 4 weeks.
Advantix can be used on puppies from 7 weeks of age. It can be safely used on pregnant and lactating female dogs.
Advantix repels ticks. The great advantage of this is that it can repel a tick before it bites your dog. Any ticks attached prior to application of Advantix will be killed by the product but will remain attached.
Advantix continues to be effective after a treated dog is exposed to water. This allows the dog to continue to participate in swimming and being bathed.
Advantix is manufactured by Bayer Australia Ltd.
How to use the product
Advantix for Dogs is applied as a spot-on treatment at skin level. For dogs less than 25kg the entire contents of the tube is applied between the shoulder blades. For dogs over 25kg, the appropriate dose is divided and applied between the shoulder blades, between the hips, and at one point in between.
Advantix for dogs is available in 4 different sizes.
- Dogs less than 4kg -green pack
- Dogs 4-10kg - turquoise (aqua)pack
- Dogs 10-25kg - red pack
- Dogs over 25kg - blue pack
Note - dogs over 50kg require dosage with 2 pipettes from the blue pack.
Owners of growing dogs need to be aware of any changes in their dog's weight to ensure that the appropriate dose is given to protect their dog as it grows.
Tips and tricks
Dogs generally accept the administration of spot-on treatments fairly well. However if your dog doesn't co-operate, using distraction techniques may be of benefit. Having another person pat the dog or offer a small treat at the time of application is often beneficial for such animals.
If your dog likes to roll in the dirt or grass immediately after application, take the dog for a walk immediately after application to ensure it is not rubbed off.
After every application of Advantix, owners should consider placing a marker on the calendar for the next due date to ensure continuity of protection and avoid forgetting a dose.
Advantix contains 2 active ingredients
Imidacloprid 100 g/L and permethrin 500 g/L.
Contraindications and warnings
Advantix must not be used on cats or animals other than dogs.
Do not allow cats to actively groom or have close physical contact with a recently treated dog.
Ensure that Advantix does not contact the mouth or eyes of the treated dog.
Not for use in puppies less than 7 weeks of age.
During tick season daily tick searches are still recommended.

We have been using this for several years. We live on 5 acres with many trees. no fleas or ticks. Plus have researched and Joe's is always the least expensive.
Best prices anywhere
I have three dogs and Joe's prices can't be beat anywhere, I have been coming back for years and good quality for half the price.
I've used this product for years, it has worked without any upset to my dogs and no incident of fleas or ticks. What more can you ask, I rate it a 5-star.
Our property supports a very healthy tick population. After one of our dogs contracted lyme disease (very expensive to treat), we started using K9 Advantix and haven't had a problem in years. We buy from Joe's Pet Meds because of the low price and quality service. We just make sure to allow plenty of lead time when ordering as it sometimes takes more than the 4 - 10 day delivery time advertised.
Great product! Great price!
We've been using it for couple of years now and it always works great. Also Joe's pet meds offers it for a much better price then pet stores, which is great too=)
It really helps with the fleas and havent really noticed any mosquitos on my dogs. Great price and fairly fast delivery (about two weeks). I love this site!!! Been using this on my dogs for about a year and no side effects :)
i have used this on my old weiney dog for years works great no side effects and keep buggys off my lil hot dog shes happy which makes me happy thank you Joes for great service !
The best product ever!
I've been using this product for over 10 years after trying many other brands. All others seem like flea/tick food... they have no chance with advantix! It is more expensive, but in the long run it's cheaper. You wont regret it
Expensive but worthy
This is a bit pricey but I have no regrets. As long as it is very effective on my dogs and got no side effects. Thank you Joe's Pet Meds for this amazing product.
Tick and flea solution
I've been buying Advantix from Joe's Pet meds since 2014. My dogs are very prone to fleas since we live in Florida but Advantix is really a great help in controlling and preventing them. Great solution indeed.
