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.

Joe's Pet Meds has the best price for ticks and fleas. My friend recommended Joe's Pet meds to me and I'm now buying meds for my dogs here. It's a wise decision coz u get to have the same products at a lower price.
Great treatment for ticks and fleas
No regrets on trying this one. I've bought many treatments for ticks and fleas, but most of them, unfortunately didn't work on my dogs. K9 Advantix easily get rid off the parasites. After my first application you can see great results after a few days. And it's amazing. Everyone who's having trouble with ticks and fleas should definitely try this one.
Spot on treatment
Thank you Joe's Pet meds! This treatment works well. No more problems with fleas.
If you're looking for a safe and effective treatment for ticks and fleas, this is definitely the right med for you. I've tried this to my dogs and I've been buying this from Joe's Pet Meds for already 2 years and I got no complaints. Best tick and flea treatment ever.
K9 Advantix is a great treatment!! Ticks and fleas are gone. Works fast.
Best so far
Loving it!! I've tried a lotof flea and tick control products nut nothing works like K9 Advantix. It is so far the best I've ever tried. My dogs are also happy because finally, they are flea free.
Great price here at Joe's
I love shopping here in Joe's. It's very convenient. Shipping is fast, too. Most importantly, items are on good condition and prices are unbeatable. I couldn't imagine life being a pet owner without Joe's.
Fleas and ticks, gone!
Big thanks to K9 Advantix. My dogs are now free from ticks and fleas. Summer brought those fleas back to my dogs. It's terrible. Good thing I got to order Advantix from Joe's Pet Meds and apply immediately. Thank you
Thank you for having Advantix on your product list. I'm giving my dogs Advantix for years now but I'm tired of the vet's prices. I look on Joe's Pet Meds and I'm happy you got Advantix. Big help on my budget.
Not bugged again
I have 2 golden Retrievers. We love the outdoors. I run them daily sometimes at the Gettysburg Battlefield, our local cabin by the creek and at various parks, some with shoreline. I have been using your products for years now. They work superbly with no side effects and are 1/2 the price of my vet. Recommend your products and your company highly. Plus I like your funny advertising man!!
