K9 Advantix II repels and kills fleas, ticks and mosquitoes to protect the dogs that support our troops.
K9s For Warriors is a non-profit organization that supports veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI) by pairing them with a specially trained service dog. These dogs were selected from shelters and trained to help soldiers anticipate and endure stressful situations to help them adjust to civilian life.
These shelter dogs need protection from parasites and the diseases they carry just like any dog; so to provide this much needed support, Bayer has stepped up to provide all dogs in the K9s For Warriors training program with a 12-month supply of K9 Advantix II. This allows each dog to undergo the Assistance Dog International certified training needed to provide unparalleled emotional support to their soldiers.
Service dogs need to be trained to identify the onset of seizures, panic attacks, and other medical issues to fulfill their duties as assistance dogs. This training requires ample resources including medication to ensure that the dogs stay healthy and fit for service; and for this reason, the organization has made K9 Advantix II their official flea & tick preventive.
Additionally, Bayer is sponsoring a team of ten shelter-to-service dogs for the full expenses of their training and adoption. The 2015 K9 Advantix II Dog Team is composed of some of the bravest and kindest shelter dogs you could ever hope to know. You can also view their progress through their program and in their new forever homes at MyK9Hero.com.
So How Does Your Purchase of K9 Advantix II Help Soldiers?
Last year, Bayer donated $10,000 worth of K9 Advantix II to the service dogs of K9s For Warriors; this year Bayer is upping the ante. In addition to the aforementioned provisions to the dogs in training and the 2015 K9 Advantix Dog Team, Bayer is donating $1 for every purchase of K9 Advantix II between March 1 and May 31, 2015 to K9s for Warriors- up to the tune of $150,000.
