Advantix For Dogs

Advantix for dogs is a spot-on treatment with wide ranging effects.

  1. It kills fleas and flea larvae in the environment for 4 weeks
  2. Repels and kills the paralysis tick for 2 weeks
  3. Repels and kills the brown dog tick and bush tick for 1 month
  4. Repels and kills mosquitoes and sandflies for 4 weeks.

Advantix can be used on puppies from 7 weeks of age. It can be safely used on pregnant and lactating female dogs.

Advantix repels ticks. The great advantage of this is that it can repel a tick before it bites your dog. Any ticks attached prior to application of Advantix will be killed by the product but will remain attached.

Advantix continues to be effective after a treated dog is exposed to water. This allows the dog to continue to participate in swimming and being bathed.

Advantix is manufactured by Bayer Australia Ltd.

How to use the product

Advantix for Dogs is applied as a spot-on treatment at skin level. For dogs less than 25kg the entire contents of the tube is applied between the shoulder blades. For dogs over 25kg, the appropriate dose is divided and applied between the shoulder blades, between the hips, and at one point in between.


Advantix for dogs is available in 4 different sizes.

  1. Dogs less than 4kg -green pack
  2. Dogs 4-10kg - turquoise (aqua)pack
  3. Dogs 10-25kg - red pack
  4. Dogs over 25kg - blue pack

Note - dogs over 50kg require dosage with 2 pipettes from the blue pack.

Owners of growing dogs need to be aware of any changes in their dog's weight to ensure that the appropriate dose is given to protect their dog as it grows.

Tips and tricks

Dogs generally accept the administration of spot-on treatments fairly well. However if your dog doesn't co-operate, using distraction techniques may be of benefit. Having another person pat the dog or offer a small treat at the time of application is often beneficial for such animals.

If your dog likes to roll in the dirt or grass immediately after application, take the dog for a walk immediately after application to ensure it is not rubbed off.

After every application of Advantix, owners should consider placing a marker on the calendar for the next due date to ensure continuity of protection and avoid forgetting a dose.

Ensure that Advantix does not contact the mouth or eyes of the treated dog.

Itchy Dog No More
Nov 29, 2011

We recently moved into an apartment and the previous owners were not very responsible cat owners. They left fleas. My 8 year Shiba Inu was so itchy he would just sit and whine. I felt terrible. I log in to Pet Shed ordered the K9 Advantix and told Kit it would all be better very soon. And sure enough in a couple of days we received a package in the mail. I applied the Advantix and seriously within days Kit was not itchy any more. Yay No more fleas.

Got my order in a very timely manner. Wouldn't use anything else for critter control especially the mosquito control factor since mosquitos are a vector for heart worms, one less thing to worry about. It really works as advertised...

very satisfied

After frontline wasn't working in our area on our dog, we switched to Advantix. It does a great job keeping our 70-lb dog flea and tick free and it helps with the mosquitoes too! As an added bonus, Petshed has the best price out there!

This website is the only place I will buy pet meds for my dogs. They are promptly delivered at the projected date, the are 100% effective, they are the lowest price I have found online or at the vet's office, and the website is very user friendly. There is not a lot of excess packaging, which is better for the environment. Not only is Pet Shed working towards creating a greener website, but my weimaraner and my beagle have been running through heavily wooded areas and I have not seen a single flea or tick on either one of them. Great product and wonderful service. Thank you Pet Shed!
