I hate ticks! Living in the country means they’re inevitable. I purchased two boxes of this for my large dogs and they still have living ticks! Imagine my dismay when I see these nasty demons on my dogs after I applied this medication. I followed the directions and unfortunately this product is completely ineffective against the disgusting blood suckers. I’m now out quite a bit of money for the two boxes and my dogs are still not protected. I’m now looking for another option.
I have two boston Terriers, I called and the representative said it was the best, I think she meant the worst. It did not work at all! I would like to send the other two back And get some kind of refund it was a waste of sixty two dollars. Not happy at all, We are big fans at chewy but not lately. When our dog food was delivered they put it at the mailbox down our drive way. Called and reported it They saw the picture and never got to call back. We are thinking about canceling chewy.
I want to say I use this on my dogs because i live in a wooded area by a creek, ticks are a major issue here. We get fleas also and this product works great, its a contact killer that kills when the pests get on them, they dont have to take a bite to die. This product can cause a tingly sensation on the skin which some sensitive dogs, one of mine included, can look like an allergic reaction. The sensation will go away once the product dries. As far as i know there are only 3 products that kill on contact, this, vectra and seresto collar. The pills they have to take a bite in order to die there is no repellant in the pills. I choose this because my area is loaded with ticks fleas mosquitoes, and this works for us. Plus if my dog has a true allergy reaction some dawn dish soap and it removes the product, unlike a pill that is internal. Imo this is a far safer option than most, do not let cats near it though. It is deadly to cats. When applying do not put it all in one spot, start between the shoulder blades put a little there then in 3 more small spots down the back. Never overload one area with the product. Small spots also help reduce any tingly sensation the dog may get. Dont let the dog rub it off for about 2 hours after take him for a walk or play with him. Dont let other dogs mouth each other till its dry, dont let kids pet him till dry. Once dry you can brush him out and never know the stuff was there. Wait 48 hours after a bath to apply and makes sure he is dry, I dont let them get wet for 48 hours after also. after that its pretty well set up. For the first 12 to 18 hours if your dog was infested you will see a lot of activity as the fleas and ticks go hyper trying to escape the product, that is normal. What isnt normal is skin burns or scabbing where you put the product, if you dump toomuch in one spot it can cause it, as well as a true reaction to the ingredient in some dogs. Any lethargy drooling staggering can mean your dog ingested some by licking it off, or is having a true allergy reaction...wash them with dawn twice and call your vet. I dont put it where they can reach it, and i observe them until its dry. I still choose this over an internal pesticide, you cant remove an internal chemical.
I used advantix for year for my dog. In recent months, I noticed my dog always have scars on his back. and it’s always found the scar on the spots after 2-3days afterI used the topical. Not too sure what happened, but I will stop using it and maybe use some flea collar instead.
I have seen a decrease in the number of ticks on my dog but not completely gone. I have not seen any fleas but she didn't have any prior to application. I'm planning on trying a different product after this one wears off.
been using this product for years. works 3 weeks to the day. if you go over those 3 weeks in the summer when fleas are everywhere outside, simply apply and in literally a couple of hours ALL fleas have disappeared! chewy accidentally shipped me the ADVANTAGE and I wouldn't even use it. waited on my k9 advantix to arrive from a new order.
I have bought 2 kits for my dogs depending on their weight and still have fleas. Spending more money for sprays, shampoos to keep them free of fleas at least for a couple of weeks. The pill works much better but they give me a hard time to take. This item is very expensive for their effectiveness. Would not recommend to spend your money.
My order arrived quickly so my pets get their treatment before being boarded. K9 Advantix Ii keep my pets safe from fleas & ticks. I have been using K9 Advantix Ii for over 20 years.
I used this on my 5 year old golden doodle, after always using the pill from the vet, and made her break out in scabs and was SUPER uncomfortable.
This is a great product and the only one I can use on my fur babie's my boy get's a reaction to the other stuff..I use half of the dose on each of my dog's at the first sign of flea's and works very well and fast delivery from chewy 🙂
