Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Does NOT work! Waste of money!!!
I have been using K9 Advantix on my dog for the past 3 months and it does not work at all. I switched to Advantix from PetArmor which was just as bad but more affordable. I thought paying so much for a product would mean something but after 3 months I am very disappointed. For instance, I put Advantix on my dog, Riley, five days ago and there are fleas all over him. I do not expect Advantix to be a miracle worker and perhaps I could maybe understand if he had fleas after a few weeks but five days later??? According to the label, Advantix is supposed to kill fleas within 12 hours of application. That is completely false. I'm tired of spending so much money on products that do not work and this is one of them that I will surely never use again!! Perhaps if your dog stays indoors his entire life and never goes into a yard then Advantix might be useful. Other than that its a waste of money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MsDee62 Doesn't work
Last month I bathed and brushed both my dogs(X-large 90 & 110 lbs and appllied K9 Advantix as instructed. I have pulled 2 ticks off of my yellow lab; one a week after I applied and one 2 weeks after I applied. I'm not very happy as this stuff isn't exactly cheap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Miafaye Better than frontline plus
We have 2 dogs and have always used frontline plus - until this year. While it still works well on our geriatric retriever/lab mix, it was not working AT ALL on our 1 year old English Setter. She was literally covered in fleas and almost bald from scratching. Turns out she is allergic to flea bites! We switched to Advantix for her and although we still see some fleas - it's very easy to tell since her hair hasn't come back in yet (2.5 weeks after first application) they seem groggy and die soon after we see them. It does state that it can take 2 hours to kill reinfesting fleas - with her allergies, that kinda stinks, but still seems better than frontline.

I have been using this product faithfully monthly and my dog was diagnosed with Lyme Disease for the second time! It does a good job controlling fleas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jsjba Very Dissatisfied
I have been usin Advantix for several months now and never seem to have the fleas under control. I bathe my dog frequently and use a flea comb. Spray and wash bedding but still find fleas a few days later. I have been using this expensive product every couple weeks and have been very dissatisfied. I have been trying switching brands every other time like other customers have mentioned, the fleas seem to enjoy the Advantix.

I applied K9 Advantix II a little over a week ago and my dog now has a ton of fleas, more than when I put it on him (I had moved from Nashville where there aren't many fleas and didn't need preventative to HIlton Head where there are tons of fleas)...it seems like every time I take him outside more jump on him. I have no idea what to do now....and this product is insanely overpriced for NOT WORKING.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tina2001 Wish they had similar product for humans
I used to use Frontline, but I don't think they have a product with protection against mosquitoes. I've only used one dose of K9 Advantix and have noticed that he isn't bothered by mosquitoes. No ticks on the dog, but found one on me. No fleas and I've seen the rabbits and squirrels scratching furiously, so I'm sure they probably have fleas. Bottom line, while the product is very pricy, I'd still recommend it and I'll continue to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 The BEST @ repelling mosquitoes
We have 3 dogs who routinely bring in fleas, ticks, and suffer from mosquito attacks when they are outside.
Nothing else does what K9 Advantix does when it comes to mosquitoes. They will hover over our dogs, refusing to land on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 It works for us!
I've used Advantix II for over 5 years on my Bichon Frise and its the best. He is 3,000% allergic to fleas and this has been the best relief for me and him. We have lived in many different US climates and its worked well whenever we moved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by woodbridge13 DOES NOT REPEL or KILL TICKS
Despite applying k9 Advantix II every 3 weeks, my dog is covered in ticks each time she comes home from a run through the woods. I pulled 20 ticks off her in the past 24 hours. This product is expensive, and DOES NOT WORK.
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR TICKS

Rated 1 out of 5 by lhasaowner My dog has had Ticks while on this product
I just found a second tick on my dog after using this product. He is a Lhasa Apso with almost a full coat...I followed product instructions to a tee...and both ticks were attached and neither was dead. Last summer I had to apply every 3 weeks rather than four to keep him free of fleas. For the price of this product, I do not think it lives up to its advertising. I would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Itching It USED TO work
I used K9 Advantix last year and it worked fine - no fleas, no ticks, no mosquito attacks. In April of this year I noticed that it didn't work any more. Thought it was a bad batch or the product was old, so I got a fresh supply from my vet. Either Bayer has changed the formula, or the flea population has had a major change, because ADVANTIX II IS NOT WORKING TO KILL OR REPEL FLEAS THIS YEAR. I've resorted to the flea comb until I can test out another brand. Now I'm stuck with 6 more tubes for extra large dogs of very pricey non-working flea stuff.
Bayer, what happened?

Rated 5 out of 5 by soccermom5 Amazing Product to use when you are concerned about ticks being on your dog.
I use this product on my dog to keep the ticks and fleas under control. My dog doesn’t have contact with wooded areas. He is spoiled and primarily stays indoors; he is a large dog with longer hair. We have a large wooden deck in our back yard and see at least 2-3 bunnies in the neighborhood daily. Our back yard has full sun with very little shade which used to be a blessing because the ticks were never seen. This year has been different. I have seen ticks on my fence in my own backyard, on my neighbor's dog and to be honest found one on my dog. I realized that I didn't apply the product yet for this year so I applied it last month. I have not seen a tick on my dog since. Thank you K9 advantix II.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pianomom Doesn't work AT ALL!!!!!
I don't know if I got a bad batch of this product or what the problem is, but it didn't work. At all!!! I used it on 3 different breeds (Cocker Spaniel, Yorkie, and German Shepherd.# It never did get rid of all of their fleas, and within one week, they were ALL a mess - fleas everywhere! Purchasing this product should give the owner piece of mind, especially since you all got a big piece of my bank account to pay for this product for 3 pets!!) and instead, it brought about frustration and even MORE expense #had to purchase other products) We also threw away all bedding, because the problem took so long to solve and we didn't want to take any more chances. We treated the house, the yard, the pets, and all their bedding, and we still had a problem with fleas. And, yes, we used it exactly like the label recommends. Horrible experience, and lots of money spent!! I will NEVER purchase this product again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sparkie The products does what it claims to do.
I love the advantix product. It's easy to use and it does it's job. None of the pets we have ever have fleas since using the advantix. We do see an occasional tick but they are always easy to get off of the dog if found. The product is easy to apply and last for the time specified. The price is a little steep but it's worth paying it since it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 Not that great.
We recently moved and discovered our new area had a lot of ticks. We had our 1 acre yard sprayed with a promethrin alternative, our new puppy got vaccinated and we started using Frontline after extracting 14 ticks in a 2 day period. We still saw many ticks on her (sometimes dead) but often alive. We are primarily concerned for ourselves since we are not lucky enough to be vaccinated and I know too many people who's lives have been ruined by lyme disease. The vet recommended K9 Advantix since ticks are immediately repelled and less likely to latch on and stay (entering the house). A few days after Advantix a 1 hour long walk on the road produced 10 ticks (alive) when we got home. Advantix isn't the answer. Maybe it's the best topical dog treatment, but the 10 happy ticks we found thought otherwise. We are more scared than ever.

My dog has never been bothered by pests since we started using this product. We live in the country and there are tick everywhere, more this year than in past years. We have found ticks on ourselves this year after being outside on our property, but none on our little dog, ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by michele0755 The best product out there!
I transferred my dog from Frontline Plus to Adavantix II about a year ago. Using Frontline Plus I was still finding ticks on him that were attached. Since using Advantix II I have not seen any ticks or fleas on him at all. I will continue to use and let all my friends and family know about this great product.

This product works well. We have 2 Border Collies, and they have both done well with the product. I recommend reapplying just shy of every 4 weeks to keep there from being a gap in the medication wearing off.
