How to apply K9 Advantix® II
How to Apply
Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes can cause diseases that may compromise your dog’s health.
Fleas and their bites can irritate your dog, spread diseases and lead to a variety of health concerns. Discover more about how fleas can make your dog sick — and how you can help stop them.
Ticks carry many ailments that can have a long-lasting impact on your dog, including one of the most common tick diseases: Lyme disease.
When it comes to mosquitoes, it’s not just the buzzing and biting that can annoy you and your pet; it’s the bloodsucking, too. By piercing the skin and drinking directly from a blood vessel, mosquitoes’ bites can result in serious consequences that may compromise your dog's health and happiness.

Luckily, with K9 Advantix® II, new fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further infestation for at least 4 weeks. As fleas die they are no longer able to stay hidden against your dog’s skin, and therefore you may also be seeing dying fleas coming to the surface of your dog’s fur coat.

How do I apply K9 Advantix® II?
Use only on dogs. DO NOT USE ON CATS or other animals. Do not apply to dogs weighing less than 4 lbs.
Remove applicator tube from the package. Use scissors and peel down foil.
Hold applicator tube in an upright position. Pull cap off tube.
Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
The dog should be standing for easy application. Evenly apply the entire contents of the tube along the top of the dog's back, from the shoulder down to the base of the tail. The number of spots depends on the size and weight of your dog (please refer to the product label). At each spot, part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and gently squeeze to expel a portion of the solution on the skin. Do not apply an excessive amount of solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run off the side of the dog. Do not get this product in your dog’s eyes, or allow your dog to ingest this product.
