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.

Bye Bye Ticks!

We live in a tick hot zone and from spring to late fall, we have more than our share. K9 Advantix has been my best choice, as it not only kills the nasty bugs, but repels them. It has worked fantastically for my Labrador, and gives me peace of mind that fewer live ticks make it into the house. I've had Lyme disease twice, and it's no fun. So K9 protects my dog and me! I feel better knowing that when he runs through the woods like the carefree pup he is, he has an invisible shield protecting him.

Had to get something different as Frontline quit working. This is a superior product by far as the mosquitoes here in Texas are terrible and it takes care of the fleas and ticks too. I have been dealing with Pet Shed for many years because their prices are the best, shipping is exceptional and their customer service is outstanding. Never had a problem!! Will be ordering for many more years to come.

Best flea control ever!

I have been purchasing my pet care products from Pet Shed for years. I have always been very happy with the products and service. This past year, for the first time, my golden retriever and Pomeranian were infested with fleas. It was heartbreaking to watch all the scratching and knowing that they were just miserable. I had previously used Frontline on them and it just wasn't working anymore. So I took a leap and bought the K9 Advantix and was so happy when it controlled the problem! No more fleas!!! Now they only scratch when they want to. Thanks Pet Shed!

After quick and timely receipt of Advantix, we applied the product as we were going out for a walk. The key selling point for us is that it not only kills bugs after biting the dog, it repels the bugs in the first place. Our dog is very sensitive to bug bites to the point where he has needed a steroid shot. This product has prevented that problem from recurring. Thanks for offering it at a reasonable price.

Frontline stopped being effective. Advantix seems to work great. Pet Shed also has the lowest price for this product. I have been shopping with Pet Shed for years and they have always shipped promptly and have the best pricing.
