Advantix with the active ingredients Permethrin and Imidacloprid is a fast-acting agent that kills fleas, ticks and lice. It is also a remedy that repels ticks, sandflies, mosquitoes and stable flies. These parasites can transmit various diseases to your dog. Advantix's repellent reduces this risk. Advantix is a spot-on anti-flea and tick remedy for dogs and is applied with pipettes. Advantix creates the so-called hot foot effect. Ticks that land on the coat of the treated dog react as if they are walking on a hot plate. They have no time to attach themselves and fall to the ground where they die.
It is very important to prevent the tick from biting the animal. Ticks are carriers of serious diseases, such as Babesiosis and Lyme disease. As long as they do not attach, they cannot transmit those germs to the host, and your dog and yourself will stay healthy. In fact, ticks can also transmit diseases to you. Ticks already present on the dog should be removed with, for example, a tick hook or tick forceps. Advantix remains effective even after exposure to water. However, it is better not to wash the dog directly after applying the pipette.
