How is K9 Advantix II different from K9 Advantix?
With the addition of an insect growth regulator (IGR), K9 Advantix II kills all life stages of fleas. K9 Advantix II also prevents development of fleas, flea eggs, larvae (maggots), and pupae (cocoons), and prevents fleas on a treated dog from infesting your home.
What is the benefit of repellency?
Repellency helps prevent ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes from attaching, biting or feeding. A repelled parasite doesn’t bite or attach. If it doesn’t bite or attach, it can’t transmit the organisms that may cause disease.
What is the difference between K9 Advantix II and other tick and flea products?
K9 Advantix II repels and kills ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. It repels biting flies and kills lice, too. Its repellency activity and broad spectrum make K9 Advantix II different from other tick and flea products.
Is K9 Advantix II waterproof?
Yes. There is no need to reapply the product after weekly swimming or a bath. For best results, use a non-detergent shampoo.
Can I use K9 Advantix II on my cat?
