Adantix For Dogs - Comprehensive Protection

Advantix is a triple protection product designed not only to repel and kill ticks and fleas but also to kill and repel mosquitoes before they can bite. Effective ingredients in advantix include imidacloprid and permethrin which work synergistically together against parasites. In other words, the action of imidacloprid complements the activity of permethrin. Applied topically once a month, advantix is designed to be gentle enough for puppies 7 weeks of age or older and dogs of any size. It is also designed to work for up to four weeks and to maintain it's effectiveness after swimming and bathing. However, advantix has compounds that could be adverse to the feline physiology and metabolism, therefore, k9 advantix is for dogs only and it should never be used on cats.

Whats New With Advantix II

Both advantix products are manufactured by Bayer and both contain the ingredients imidacloprid and permethrin to help repel and kill fleas, ticks and mosquitoes in the adult stages, and both come in blue, red, green, and teal. Advantix ii has an additional ingredient however - pyriproxyfen. The ingredient pyriproxyfen is an insect growth regulator that will help prevent eggs and immature fleas from developing into adults, so not only will it help control adult fleas but it will help prevent further infestation from developing ones as well - something not all products can do. Since Advantix 2 has an extra ingredient it may cost more than the regular variety but the extra protection it provides may make it worth the extra cost to many pet owners, particularly those with a bad flea problem inside their home.

Advantage Flea Products Compared To K9 Advantix Meds

Advantage flea products and K9 Advantix flea and tick control all contain the ingredient imidacloprid to repel fleas, all are applied topically monthly and all are water resistant. However, k9 advantix contains an additional ingredient, permethrin, that advantage products do not have. Permethrin works in combination with the imidacloprid to control fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, something that advantage products alone cannot do. A very important reminder, K9 Advantix is designed for dogs only because it has ingredients that should never be used on felines, as a matter of fact, it should not even be used on dogs if there is a possible chance that a cat may lick or groom that canine. However, advantage products are available for both dogs and cats in a traditional variety known simply as Advantage - mainly for fleas, and in a new variety, known as Advantage Multi which helps control both fleas and heartworms.

Frontline vs Advantix - Differences And Similarities

Frontline and Advantix utilize different ingredients but both offer versions that work against adult flea and ticks only and then slightly more expensive options that also help fight fleas and ticks at egg, pupae and larvae stages too. Advantix is designed to help repel mosquitoes whereas Frontline is not. On a personal note we've tried both Frontline and Advantix on our own dogs. We liked K9 Advantix for our outdoor dogs because we liked the added protection against mosquitoes and it held up well against our dogs constant efforts to take a dip in the horse trough. However, it seemed that Advantix did not give much "cheat time" after the four weeks of usage were up - in other words the minute those four week were gone Advantix's effectiveness rapidly declined. So we like Frontline better for our inside dogs.

Caution For Cat Owners

Many flea and heartworm topicals are for use on dogs only. Everyone understands that this means they are not for use on cats, however, it also important to remember to take the necessary cautions to avoid exposure to your cats simply from playing with or grooming your dog. Many felines like to lick their canine companion or may get the liquid on them while the two of them are playing. If you have a cat that often comes in contact with the dog you are treating you may wish to choose another flea topical that is safe for cats too such as frontline or advantage products.
