Benefits of using Advantix II and Advantage II


Benefits Of Using K-9 Advantix II

All new K-9 Advantix II takes superior flea control to the next level with the addition of the insect growth regulator (IGR) pyriproxyfen. Dogs and puppies older than 7 weeks of age and older can be treated with this water resistant formula that protects your dog continuously, even after shampooing and rain exposure.
What makes K-9 Advantix II different?
Synergistic Effect The two active ingredients imidacloprid and permethrin are often used alone as effective treatments against parasites. However, the combination Advantix formula works synergistically to provide more protection than each of these ingredients alone. Together, they complement one another to enhance their effectiveness and provide complete protection against fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
The active ingredient imidacloprid is an EPA approved topical insecticide that kills adult fleas by disrupting their nervous system. Fleas in their larval stages are also killed when they come in contact with the treated pet or their immediate surroundings. Permethrin is a synthetic pyrethrin compound commonly used to kill flying insects, fleas, and ticks.

EPA approved for use in dogs, permethrin affects the nervous system of parasites, causing repetitive nerve firings that eventually paralyze and kill them. Permethrin is longer lasting and more stable than natural pyrethrin. For this reason, it is commonly found in repellents, premise sprays, and in products intended for slower, but sustained action. K9 Advantix II takes advantage of these properties to offer superior protection against fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.

Benefits Of Using Advantage II

What makes Advantage II different?
Advantage II takes superior flea control to the next level with the addition of the insect growth regulator (IGR) pyriproxyfen. New and improved Advantage II now actively targets the ENTIRE flea life cycle for effective treatment of existing fleas and prevention of flea infestation.

Advantage II still contains the proven active ingredient, imidacloprid, found in Advantage, which kills 98-100% of adult fleas within 12 hours, stops fleas from biting in 3-5 minutes, and kills re-infesting fleas within 2 hours. The result is fast-acting relief from biting adults whether your dog has fleas or picks up fleas from another animal. The addition of the insect growth regulator (IGR) pyriproxyfen means Advantage II inhibits development of flea eggs and larvae to break the flea life cycle, so there is no development into biting, breeding adults.

Advantage II is a non-prescription topical flea control treatment specializing in fast, convenient and economical flea control. Also an effective treatment against chewing lice on dogs. Advantage II remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming, or after exposure to rain or sunlight.
