Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
I have been using it for last 2 months and during the 2 months of time i have seen more ticks around my dog than i have ever in my entire life. My dog was on frontline for 4 years with no problem until he had fleas last year which then i had to switch to Nexgard. But Nexgard being too strong and expensive, i thought i would try K9 Advantix ii this year. From the beginning, it didn’t repel him from getting a mosquito bite and then…i would find a tick here and there weekly. And today, i grabbed a grain thing around my dog after he finished his lunch and omg….omg… it was a fully fed fat tick. I freaked out because i have never found one that well fed on my dog before. We are going back to nexgard.
I decided to use this tropical on one of my dogs. Bad idea. He was itching and biting himself something terrible. I checked his skin but no rash, just itchy. He is rolling around biting hisself. My husband and I took him out in the backyard and shampooed his back. He seems to have calmed down a little. Will take him to the vet tomorrow if this still persists. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!!
I've used this for two months now and my dog has fleas. She is scratching all the time and even creating wounds. I feel horrible, and I don't know what to do besides brush and bathe her every day because I can't apply a different flea treatment for another three weeks. It's very disappointing and a waste of money!
I haven’t had a problem with fleas or mosquitos on my dog, but the ticks are the main reason I bought this topical, and it doesn’t seem to help with keeping them off at all. I will use my second dose at the 4 week mark and will see if anything changes. Going to try a different brand next round and hopefully will have better results!
We found fleas on our Golden Retriever and immediately ordered this. We bathed her and once dry we gave her this topical treatment. It’s been 1 week - and we are still finding fleas on her!! Doesn’t work. Save your money. They say the chewables work much better, that’s what we’re trying next - from a different brand!
I have been using K9 Advantix II on my 8 year old Lab ever since she was old enough for flea/tick meds and it always worked great until yesterday when I found a tick on her that was attached and then today there were 2 more. We do a lot of hiking and never had any issues until yesterday. Ugh so totally upset.
Initially she responded well to the product and the fleas died off. Unfortunately, in less than a month, she's scratching again. My yard and house have been treated. I don't want to give her an oral medication but may have to.
I've been buying this in bulk for awhile now and haven't had problems in the past. This year is another story. Despite the claim on the front of the box, this product DOES NOT repel or kill fleas. I've got 5 unopened boxes, so I called Elanco (the company listed on the box) and they tried to argue semantics about the word "repel" and how it doesn't actually mean that it will keep fleas away from dogs or prevent them from laying eggs or biting. They denied my reimbursement and hung up on me when I asked for clarification. So now I've got 5 boxes of this useless product, a house full of fleas, and 3 large, uncomfortable dogs unable to sleep through the night without itching. So thanks, K9 Advantix II for being a complete waste of money but more importantly for making my house an incredibly stressful place to be. I've already started an auto-ship with Bravecto, and I encourage anyone else to not buy K9 Advantix II unless you prefer having to wash every fabric item in your home.
I put this on both of my big dogs and 3wks later I have picked off 30+ ticks off of each dog (that is 60+ ticks total) and they are all alive!!!! This stuff is horrible! My vet said they definitely don’t recommend it and I sure do not either!
Great prices, fast shipping and excellent service. I have several collars from them, and when I was slightly displeased with the width of one of them, the response from Chewy was immediate and above and beyond. I will absolutely stay loyal to Chewy.
