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.

Ensure that Advantix does not contact the mouth or eyes of the treated dog.

all in one
K9 Advantix is like an all in one product for my dogs. I think K9 advantix is a must and you should always have this on your pet things cabinet. It does not only kills fleas and ticks but also protect my dogs from mosquitoes that might carry heartworms. I highly recommend this product to all dog owners!
Been using this for years. It started when my dog got a lot of fleas and ticks and my vet recommended this to me. That's also when I found Joe's who gives cheaper prices for pet meds. Thanks Joe for making pet health not a burden to pet owners.
Tick and Flea free

Cocker Spaniel owner
I am confident that my Cocker Spaniel is protected from ticks and fleas with K9 Advantix. Since I've used this product I've never seen any ticks and fleas crawling on my baby.
K9 Advantix - Complete protection
My little Sadie loves to run through the tall grass and chase after bunnies. With protection from K9 Advantix, I don't worry about what's hiding in the grass, waiting to bite. K9 Advantix is the most complete flea and tick protection available, not to mention the great price. Joe's Pet Meds can't be beat!
WE find K9 Advantix treatment for our Jack Russell is the best flea and tick treatment.
This product has been very effective for my dog
