We are pleased to announce our newest defense in flea and tick control. K9 Advantix™ is a topical solution made by the Bayer® Corporation that repels and kills mosquitoes, all species of ticks, and fleas. A single application of K9 Advantix lasts for 4 weeks and can be used in conjunction with other heartworm preventatives. It is safe to use on puppies as young as 7 weeks and adults of any weight. K9 Advantix is water resistant so bathing and swimming are fine after the product dries. K9 Advantix should NEVER be used on cats.

Here is a closer look at how K9 Advantix specifically targets each parasite:

  • Mosquitoes:
    • Repels and kills (Mosquitoes can carry heartworms and West Nile Virus.)
  • Ticks:
    • Repels and kills Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks and Lone Star ticks. (These ticks can carry Lyme disease, Erlichia Canis, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis and Tularemia.)
    • Does not allow ticks to bite and attach.
  • Fleas:
    • Stops fleas from biting in less than 5 minutes and starts killing within an hour. (Fleas transmit tapeworms and severe flea infestations can cause anemia or even death.)
    • Kills adult fleas before they can lay eggs.
    • Kills 98%-100% of fleas within 12 hours of initial application.
    • Kills flea larvae in the pet’s environment before they can develop into adults.
