Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldenrock Only product that works for my dog!
My dog has a skin condition that causes her to itch to the point of removing hair from large patches of her skin. We were using Frontline and it was not working. I read a review here from someone with a similar problem and they stated that Frontline could not absorb through the skin if they had certain skin conditions. I tried K9 Advantix and can only rave about how well it worked and continues to work for my dog, even three years later. I know each animal is different, but I can't sing the praises loud enough for how this changed my dog's life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Uncertain Not for all dogs apparently....
I have used K9 Advantix II for several years and never have had fleas or ticks on any of my dogs. However, we have a young puppy now who seems to be a tick magnet. I had never even seen a tick until last month. Last month she got a tick the day before her 30 day reapplication.The tick was fully engorged before I found it still very much alive. I reapplied this product May 20th. Today is June 6th and I found another tick attached and alive just tonight. Thankfully it has worked great for everyone else, but unfortunately this little puppy is not having much success with it. So I guess I would tell people that yes this is a great product, but it may not be the answer for every dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GranmaIII Worth every penny!
The fleas down here have become adjusted to Frontline and it just doesn' work anymore. Thank goodness for Advantik II. I have one of those fluffy dogs and she sure can find a reason to roll in the grass, ground, well, you know. This product kills those pesky fleas and I haven' t seen a tick since I started using it. I would suggest that every southern #Maryland down# dog owner switch.

I recommend this product for fleas but not for ticks, I treated our lab last week and this week I pulled 10 ticks off of him, they were still alive and attached,is there a product out there to help with ticks? This product is to expensive not to work well for both fleas and ticks like it claims it does!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tickedoff Regular Advantix II user: Found 11 ticks on my dog!
I have been using Advantix II for about one year. My dogs receive a scheduled application monthly. Yesterday we went hiking, and I pulled off 11 attached ticks from my border collie and 3 from my papillon. Both dogs received a recent application, so it was not at the tail end of their 30 day cycle. I am so dissapointed! While this product does seem to work for fleas, it certainly does not work for ticks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nancy44 It's like it ATTRACTED ticks
I cannot believe I spent so much $$$ only to have to reapply it in 15 days and our 3 pups STILL had ticks on them that we had to pull off daily. It really didn't work at all on either of our lab mixes and our poor min pin! One day, he had 5 ticks at once. I realize the ticks here in Texas may be bad this year but it's the last time I'll buy K9 Advantix II.

We have 2 dogs and have NEVER had fleas. I read reviews and switched from Frontline. We are switching back to Frontline. Lesson learned... if it works, don't change it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Denee DOES NOT WORK FOR TICKS!
5 months ago I switched from frontline plus to advantix II to combat fleas....it seems to work for fleas, however for the past two months I have been removing 4-6 ticks per week, from both dogs...everything from seed ticks to large engorged deer ticks! We apply consistently on the 15th of each month but it is not working. This is too expensive to not see a reduction in ticks! Open to suggestions as to what product to try next!

Rated 3 out of 5 by houndmama1 Advantage use
I am a director of a greyhound adoption group. Last year the fleas were horrible and I used several products with not good results. Although Advantix/Advantage is not cheap by any means I had to go back to that and resign myself not to be totally flea free for the summer. After using several products the advantage did the best job and I will continue to use and recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gsdlover Doesnt repel or kill biting ticks
My dog had an engorged tick on him today. The product states that it repels ticks, and if not, kills them when they bite. This tick was NOT dead, was engorged. I found another tick in my house, alive. I assume he brought it in. I have just put his monthly treatment on last week (April 27/28) Very unhappy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunbob In His Hands Small Animal Rescue only uses Advantix
Our rescue uses Advantix II on all of our dogs. We have a tick problem in our area, and the Advantix keeps them tick free. We go through a lot of flea & tick meds because we usually have 20-50 dogs in rescue, although some of these are our dogs and some are permanent fosters. We have tried the cheaper products, but the Advantix works and the others didn't. works nearly as well. It is Advantix for us all the way.

After reading several positive online reviews, I switched to K9 Advantix II. I quickly found it's not at all effective at preventing ticks. I'll be switching back to Frontline.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tracey Doesn't work for ticks!
I am so very disappointed in this product. My dogs are suffering needlessly because it doesn't work on ticks! We had the house and lawn treated and I treated the dogs with K9 Advantix the same day. I used this product at the advice of the gentleman in PetSmart. he stated it was 'the' product for my needs, swore up and down it worked for him in the past. Unfortunately, speaking in the present, this has done nothing to the ticks except allow them to do what they do best, multiply! Looks like I'll be heading back to the store and footing the bill for a different product that really does what it claims AND paying for yet another expensive treatment of my home and yard.
My evening was spent taking ticks off of the dogs. My poor welsh corgi had 37 ticks of various sizes/stages and we're not done yet. I do not suggest use of this product for ticks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Darrell Nothing is working
Have used this product over the past 6-7 years on my (3) malteses, and would say it has worked excellent. But recently in the past year or so, my area seems to have been over ran by an infestation of ticks and I've tried everything from lawn care, shampoos, dips, collars and even still the K9 Advantix spot on. Instantly take the dogs outside they come back in with ticks on them, but can't seem to see them in the grass. This product and no other product is not working at all. Any advice??

Rated 1 out of 5 by smalltownjewel I am very unhappy with this product. I have used it twice in less than 2 months and even still I am finding fleas on my dog.
So angry! This flea medicine is not cheap and I have gave it more than one chance and I am still very unhappy with it. The vet said I was within a safe timeframe to put it on my dog. It was less than the original 30 days but he was covered in fleas. I put the medication on him on the 6th and here it is just 1 week out and he already has some fleas on him. This is useless medicine if this is how it is going to work. I wish I could get a refund because this was a complete waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rssz6768 This product resolves my dogs issues with ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and other biting insects like flys, etc. Kills chewing lice
I tried Frontline and Frontline plus and various other types of treatments. K9 Advantix II does the job and I never have to worry about my dog during the spring-fall time in Michigan. It may cost a little more but it is worth it. I highly recommend this product.

Reading previous reviews, this seems to be a good product. Unfortunately, my dog suffered from the side effects and has been scratching/itching ever since I applied the medicine (applied application yesterday). Will be going back to his original flea medicine instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pixieeyes26 Works great but it is REALLY expensive.
I love how easy the packaging is to use versus other products. I've never had a flea problem, even after I brought a stray in my house that an hour later I looked and he was covered in fleas. I love the product but I can no longer afford the incredibly high price tag every month. I have to switch to something cheaper.
