    Frequently asked questions:

    Q: How long does K9 Advantix last?

    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.

    Q: Can I bathe my pets during the month after application?

    A: Yes, you can give your dogs or cats a bath. We recommend a non-detergent shampoo for best results.

    Q: For what age pets can I use K9 Advantix on?

    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.

    Great stuff
    K-9 Advantage Green seems to work better than a lot of the other flea products I've tried. Kept fleas off my dog longer than most.

    Product does not work like it says
    I had to use all my product on both my dogs the first month. After all the time it took to get the product to me and the hassles with that...my dogs were getting sick and had sores all over them from all the flees they got moving to California. Even after getting a shot at the Vet, an ecxpensice dog shampoo and the first initial dose of Advantix, my dogs flees were still not gone. I had to use the other one on both of them to finally get rid of the flees. This was a horribly miserable time for them and for me to see them like that. The company was like pulling teeth to get the product sent to me in a timely manner and without a lot of confusion.

    Advantix and the Vet.
    Entirely Pets allows me to buy the products I need for my little guy. The vet requires an appointment and exam when all we need is something to stop the fleas. Entirely Pets saves me time and money and I do not have to make an extra trip to the vet.

    This is the most reasonable site for Advantix K9 around. This is the only product that works on my dogs, and I have four dogs!

    Works okay
    this stuff seems to be decently effective at best, my dog definitely stopped chewing and scratching at fleas within a day or so. however, i did find a flea on him that im not sure was dead or not. i recommend looking for fleas and picking them out even after applying this. only time will tell if this stuff works the entire month because my dog is in constant exposure to new fleas with the multiple walks he takes per day!

    GREAT!
    I love this product mostly due to the fact it is for mosquito's, as well as flea's & ticks. I live in Vermont and it has been a nasty and terrible year for those buggers, but my pups are protected and we have had no problems with mosquito's, ticks or fleas! i love this product and will only use this on my dogs!!
