My dog spends a lot of time outside so effective flea control is important. We also take her for walks in hills and tall grassy areas, a haven for ticks. Now that diseases like the West Nile Virus are becoming more common mosquitos have also become an issue. Thankfully there are products out now that can combat all three of these pesky, and potentially harmful, insects. To keep our dog protected we use K9 Advantix. It is a once a month topical prevention and treatment for fleas, ticks and mosquitos.
We have found it very easy to use, one application on the animal's skin between the shoulder blades will last for up to 4 weeks. It is water proof so its perfect for that dog you just can't keep out of the water, or that dog who needs frequent baths because he insists on rolling around in the dirt. The price is reasonable and will depend on the weight of your dog and whether you want a 4 month or 6 month supply.
I recommend this product to all dog owners. Even if you don't have an issue with fleas, ticks or mosquitos in your area it is still a great product to use to prevent the possibility of future problems.
Please note: K9 Advantix is used specifically for dogs.
