PetMeds® K9 Advantix II: Flea Control for Dogs

 
Filed under Dr. Dym's Vet Blog
How does one provide protection to their dogs against 5 major disease carrying external parasites such as fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, lice and biting flies?  The new and improved K9 Advantix 2 product kills 98% of adult fleas are killed within 12 hours, and the trio of main ingredients also repels many of these parasites as well.


Being water proof is also a wonderful benefit, especially in those dogs who swim or are bathed often. Of course the best side effect with this product is the wonderful broad spectrum parasite control which is highly superior to most other products. Rare reactions include sensitivity at the site of application, digestive upset and even less commonly neurological reactions.

Pet owners should wait at least 1-2 hours for K9 Advantix II to dry before allowing dogs around cats

One of the main client concerns with K9 Advantix II is its use in households with cats. When this product first came out it was recommended that it be used only in those households without cats, but with additional research it was found that it was safe to use this product on dogs who live with cats, as long as one allows 1-2 hours for the product to adequately dry on your dog, before reintroducing them to the cats in the home. Please note, this product is NOT to be used directly on cats due to potential severe toxicity.

If you have been using K9 Advantix on your dog, are you planning on switching to the K9 Advantix II?

    How about a REFUND from the manufacturer of this over-priced K9Advantix (version 1) for it’s inefficiency!! I have yet to see it keep the fleas off my 2 dogs for a solid month yet!! I’ve purchased a 12-month supply, and re-apply every 3 weeks…

    I used Advantix II on my dogs (black lab and dachshund) and it worked wonders on both of them, but especially the black lab who was chewing herself raw. Within 2 days of the application, she was no longer biting and scratching, and within a week, her hair was growing back.

    My dog is a Pomeranian Mix.

    He scratches or bites on himself all the time.

    He is about 33 lbs.

    Try antihistamine such as benadryl at dose of 1 mg per pound twice daily. Yucca intensive by azmira also may help as well from 1800petmeds. Add fatty acid like be well to meals
