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.

I am a shopper and no one beats Joe's prices on flea products. I have used this and several different products. I have 12 cats and 5 dogs so we use some flea prevention around this farm. Thanks Joe for keeping it affordable.
'Happy and tickless'
5 and 7 year old Australian Shepherds, Fat Chance and Riley have been treated with Advantage and now Advantix since birth. Living on country property surrounded by wooded acreage, these long-haired dogs are tick magnets. But thanks to Advantix applied once a month, our dogs are tick free, flea free and happy.......even in the height of flea and tick season. Joe's Pet Meds is the only place where we make these life and money saving purchases (they are also on Heartgard). Navigating their website is fast, easy and service is prompt. Two happy Aussies and their Mom thank you, Joe.
Best Solution for Our Dogs
We have used K9 Advantix for 7 years, after trying many other solutions. We've found it's the best for where we live, a mix of swamp and prairie in the American south. We never have an issue with fleas, it repels mosquitoes, and we've only ever found two ticks. That's a much better result than we had with any other brand, which our vet told us have all mostly become ineffective against fleas and ticks in our area. Great price, fast shipping.
used it for years
Don't think you can find it cheaper anywhere else. Always comes in a short amount of time.
This is great
I have a multi dog-cat household and have rotated Advantix and Frontline Plus for my dogs and Revolution and Advantage for my cats and we have been flea/tick free for years. These products are wonderful and buying from Joes has never been a problem! :-) I also like the generic heartwormer and use it for all my dogs AND cats monthly. Thank You Joe
I use the Advantix on both of my bull dogs and have had a wonderful experience with this flea, tick and mosquito control. We live in Florida among about 100 acres of woods that are a breeding ground for both ticks and mosquitos and the Advantix helps repel both amazingly. I have had no flea or tick breakouts since I have started using this product. I would highly recommend.
Used it for years and always works great!
