    Frequently asked questions:

    A: A single application of K9 Advantix keeps working for one month.

    Q: How often should customers use K9 Advantix?

    A: Experts recommend that pet owners should apply monthly to keep their dogs protected year round.

    Q: My pet is strictly indoors. Should I still use Advantage?

    A: Yes, Ticks and fleas can be brought into the home by people or other pets without pet owners even realizing it. Immature flea stages remain dormant until conditions are appropriate for development and infest pets after hatching. That's why it is important to also protect indoor pets.

    K9 Advantix kills fleas and ticks on Dogs K9 Advantix for dogs is effective flea and tick treatment for dogs. When a flea is exposed to imidacloprid on a treated pet, the compound is absorbed through the insect's intersegmental membrane. Here, the compound comes into contact with the flea's nervous system. Imidacloprid then acts inside the synapse of the insect to disrupt transmission of the nervous impulse. Imidacloprid binds to post-synaptic nicotinic receptor sites inside the synapse, essentially "locking" the receptor in the open position thus hyperstimulating the cell. As this occurs throughout the nervous system, it leads to death of the insect. Furthermore, imidacloprid is highly selective in its activity. It only binds to insect nicotinic receptor sites, showing virtually no affinity for mammalian receptor sites. As an analogy, one may think of a lock and key, where the insect nicotinic receptor site is the lock and imidacloprid is the key. Imidacloprid only "fits" the right "lock," and does not fit similar receptor sites found in mammals.

    Why killing flea lavre is important Flea larvae live in the canine's environment on bedding, carpeting and anywhere the dog regularly sleeps or plays. By killing flea larvae in the canine's environment, imidacloprid kills potentially re-infesting fleas at the source, before they have a chance to reproduce to infest the pet and the home. This larvicidal activity in the environment, combined with the rapid adulticidal activity on the pet, eliminates existing flea infestations quickly and prevents new ones from developing, all without the use of environmental foggers, sprays, or insect growth regulators.

    Larvicidal activity Imidacloprid is the premier flea control product, in large part, due to its unsurpassed adulticidal activity. However, imidacloprid also possesses significant larvicidal activity. In fact, Advantage, and now K9 Advantix, are the only flea adulticides that can make a larvicidal claim.

    How imidacloprid kills flea larvae in the environment Once K9 Advantix Dog is applied, both active ingredients (imidacloprid and permethrin) spread across the body. Imidacloprid, in particular, spreads rapidly. During this process, imidacloprid forms very fine particles that bind with the superficial lipid layer on the skin surface. This lipid material is slowly shed off of the animal, via the normal replenishing activity of the epidermis. This "dander," made up of bits of epidermal cells, lipid, hair fragments and such, also contains imidacloprid. Thus, the treated dog, in essence, treats its own environment. As imidacloprid is an extremely potent compound (i.e., very small amounts kill fleas and flea larvae), sufficient amounts are deposited to effectively kill flea larvae in the pet's surroundings.

    Inhibition of flea biting Studies conducted in Germany by Dr. Heinz Mehlhorn also demonstrate that imidacloprid possesses significant anti-feeding activity, and fleas that jump onto an imidacloprid-treated dog stop feeding in 3 to 5 minutes. Additional studies, conducted by Dr. Michael Rust at the University of California at Riverside, confirmed that imidacloprid demonstrates significant anti-feeding activity, even at very low doses. These results are significant as it is the feeding activity of fleas that elicits an allergic condition known as flea allergy dermatitis.

    Activity of imidacloprid against ticks The highly specific mode of action of imidacloprid makes it an ideal compound for insect control. However, it does limit its utility against ticks and mites because they are arachnids (the same class as spiders) rather than insects. Research has shown that imidacloprid does not bind as well to arachnid receptors as it does to insect receptors. For this reason, imidacloprid is not utilized as a stand-alone ingredient for canine tick control. Rather, its limited activity against ticks is best exploited to enhance the efficacy of other compounds, permethrin in particular.

    Best Flea Med I've Found
    April 13, 2015
    I used to use other brands of topical flea medication, but my dogs still ended up with ticks. My two heelers are in the woods and underbrush and all around our pond all summer long, and they are exposed to lots of ticks. The K9 Advantix is the best I've found for ticks. It didn't completely eliminate them, but the dogs get much less than they ever did before. No fleas either. I'm very pleased with K9 Advantix.

    Love shopping with Entirely Pets
    December 10, 2012
    On my last order of K9Advantix I was, as always, totally satisfied and delighted with the prompt service from your company. The product arrived very quickly and was, of course, exactly what was ordered. I have been shopping with Entirely Pets for varioous items for a long time and have never had any problem or disappointment. Keep up the great service! Sincerely,

    K9 ADVANTIX is by far, the best dog pest control product that I have ever used for our dogs. We took them in for their Spring Vet visit, and they were amazed that between the 3 of them not1 flea or tick could be found, and they are indoor/outdoor dogs. I also like the fact that it protects against musquitos and biting flies.
    It can get quite expensive to purchase this for 3 dogs, So I have to shop around for sales & good pricing. Entirely Pets had, hands down, the very best price that I have found.

    Bad year for ticks!
    April 15, 2012
    This year came with a bumper crop of ticks. I started Advantix early in March this year after picking a dozen or so ticks off my dogs. I haven't seen any ticks on my dogs for a couple of weeks now. Advantix really works.

    Worked After Frontline Failed
    November 21, 2011
    I told my vet that Frontline had stopped working and she tried to convince me I had just been using it incorrectly. If I hadn't been on Facebook and talked to other dog moms with the same problem I might have tried for longer than the 3 weeks I gave it to wait for Frontline to kick-in after my dog and home were flea ridden (vacuuming every night and waking up every morning to pick fleas out of the sheets). 3 long wasted weeks of my life. K9 Advantix is the best. Never have had a problem since i switched.

    I wouldn't leave home without it!

    There just are not enough words to describe the awful feeling you get when you find that your beloved pets have ticks. Suddenly you are consumed with worry over your pets health and your own. Ticks are a severe dicomfort for your pet and interrupt your daily routine. Advantix not only wipes out the ticks but keeps them from returning. It is the most effective product that I've tried and it protects from fleas and mosquitos as well.

    We tried several products that my dog hated and didn't work. Been using this for 3 years and haven't seen a flea since. So easy!

    I have used this on my dogs for a few years now.It provides wonderful coverage, and lasts for 1 month.
    I apply a stripe from the neck area to the base of the tail. That area will appear a bit greasy, but the dogs will have absolutely NO ticks, NO fleas, and will not be bitten by mosquitoes.
    This is a wonderful product, and I highly recommend it!

    I would never consider using anything else.
