Advantix For Dogs

Advantix for dogs is a spot-on treatment with wide ranging effects.

  1. It kills fleas and flea larvae in the environment for 4 weeks
  2. Repels and kills the paralysis tick for 2 weeks
  3. Repels and kills the brown dog tick and bush tick for 1 month
  4. 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.

  1. Dogs less than 4kg -green pack
  2. Dogs 4-10kg - turquoise (aqua)pack
  3. Dogs 10-25kg - red pack
  4. 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.

Active ingredients

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.

My husband and I uses this on our four dogs and it's been very effective! It works on all of them and it does not leaves any fleas and ticks behind. Few days after application you can really see the difference. After some weeks, yes, totally no more ticks and fleas.

This is certainly one of my favorite products for my dogs. Every summer I find this essential since ticks and fleas are very prevalent. And I make sure I get to order Advantix from Joe's ahead of time so there would be no hassle in the shipping. So far I don't have any complaints in Joe's Pet meds. I always get what I want.

So happy to find this in Joe's. My vet's price for Advantix is ridiculous. Good thing it is available here. It is what my vet recommended for my dog's tick and fleas. And it's so effective on him.
