Repels and Kills Ticks, Fleas, and Mosquitos The active ingredients in K9 Advantix II help keep your dog safe from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. These effective compounds attack the pests’ nerve cells, paralyzing and effectively killing them, as well as repelling them from future attacks. Most ticks are repelled and killed before they can attach, which may reduce the risk of transmitting disease-causing organisms to your pet. K9 Advantix II effectively kills and repels Deer ticks, American dog ticks, Brown dog ticks, and Lone Star ticks.
K9 Advantix II is waterproof, so there’s no need to reapply after your dog has a bath or goes for a swim. Studies show that dogs are still protected against parasites after exposure to water, though for best results, dogs treated with K9 Advantix II should be bathed with a non-detergent shampoo.
