Advantage for dogs 10-25kg (Advantage red/Advantage maroon) - each monthly dose contains 2.5ml of 100g/L Imidacloprid solution.
DO be very careful to measure it out correctly, and if there's a question err on the side of underdosing. K9 Advantix contains a permethrin, which is what makes it so extremely toxic to cats, and at high doses it's equally toxic to dogs. Permethrins/pyrthrins are basically a non species specific neruotoxin, meaning if any animals gets contact with too high of an amount they can cause problems for that animal, including people. I think horse people tend to be a little more relaxed about the 'toxic chemical' part because to us it's fly spray!
Veterinary Therapeutics in 2000, looked at the "Efficacy of imidacloprid on dogs and cats with natural infestations of fleas, with special emphasis on flea hypersensitivity." A large population of dogs and cats (some 3272 animals) with flea allergy dermatitis skin lesions were given Advantage flea control topically, in accordance with directions. The study found that fleas were killed rapidly and that animals were prevented from being reinfested by fleas for at least 28 days following the single dose. Some animals were washed and even shampooed during the study without this affecting the efficacy of the treatment (I would still exercise caution if using soapy shampoos though) and all animals showed improvement in their clinical flea allergy signs regardless of living conditions (e.g. flea burden in the environment), coat type or body size. The study showed Advantage flea control to be highly beneficial in helping to treat animals with flea allergy dermatitis.
Advantix II for my 24 lb dog dosage? - Dogs - - City-Data Forum
K 9 Advantix for Medium Dogs 8 - 22 lbs (4-10 kg) 6 Month Dose Pack
Split large-dog Advantix doses between multiple small dogs; use a syringe and refer to this website to extract the right dosage for your dog. For my two dogs in the 11-20 lb size class I should apply 1 mL of advantix.The picture to the left is a picture of the flea preventative I've been using on Kitsune. I can understand why some of you are probably very confused! That box of Advantage II is for extra large dogs, and my Kitsune, although large for his breed, is only 22 lbs. But don't worry, I'm not overdosing my dog on flea medication! Quite the opposite, in fact.If you suspect your dog may be pregnant, ask your vet before you giveyour dog the dosage of K9 Advantix. The same goes for elderly or sick dogs. In many cases, it's safer to avoid using the medications in Advantix for the time being.So, what I do is I purchase Advantage for extra large dogs. When I open a tube of Advantage, rather than putting it right on Kitsune I instead put it into a glass vial. I then use a syringe (without a needle) to draw out how much liquid I need, then put that on Kitsune. One tube of Advantage for extra large dogs ends up being just under what I'd need for Kitsune for four months worth of treatment. To show you how that can help you save money, lets just pretend that Kitsune weighed a bit less and that I could get 4 full doses out of one tube of extra large dog Advantage.
