Indications for K9 Advantix
K9 Advantix is an effective, once a month flea & tick treatment that uses three types of medication (imidacloprid, permethrin, pyriproxyfen) to kill, prevent the growth of, and repel these pesky parasites.
Imidacloprid is the most widely used insecticide in the world, attacking the central nervous system of fleas, while having little to no effect on mammals.
Permethrin works in much the same way as imidacloprid, but against ticks, killing them on contact.
Pyriproxyfen is an insect growth regulator (IGR), which means that it prevents flea larvae from further developing into adults, thereby stopping the flea life cycle in its tracks.
