Anti-parasitic in the form of a liquid contained in a tube conceived to be applied directly to the skin of puppies and dogs and which serves to kill on contact the adult fleas and ticks living on the animal as well as to stop the development of larvae and eggs present in the environment.

Name and concentration of the molecule: Imidacloprid 8.8%, permethrin 44%, et pyriproxyfen 0.44%.

Indications

Used to kill on contact the adult fleas and ticks living on puppies and dogs as well as to stop the development of flea eggs and larvae present in their environment.

Action mode

Imidacloprid works on the neuroreceptor cells of adult insects causing a malfunctioning of the central nervous system which leads to their death.

The pyripoxyfen controls the growth of insects by preventing the maturation of their eggs and larvae. It mimics the growth hormone of young insects and stops their development during larvae metamorphosis and development.

Permethrin is a toxin which acts at the level of the neurological cells of insects by interfering with membrane exchanges.

Posology

As a cure: apply 1 tube once a month for a minimum of 4 consecutive months.

For prevention: apply 1 tube per month.

Manual

First open the tube by perforating the tip with the integrated needle in the cap of the tube. With the animal in the upright position, part the fur on the back to expose the skin. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and empty the tube progressively by pressing on it at 4 different areas along the spine.

Recommendation

It is advised to apply vitamin E right before and on the same application areas as the K9 Advantix®II to avoid the appearance of itching that may be caused by K9 Advantix®II.
