A simple and easy way to prevent your dog from picking up fleas and ticks is by buying them Advantix. Advantix is a spot on vaccine that will protect your dog against fleas, ticks, lice and flying insects such as mosquitos. As a topical application you should try to ensure your dog doesn’t lick the formula once it is applied to their skin for up to 30 mins. It isn’t the end of the world if they do but Advantix is a topical application and shouldn’t be ingested.
Advantix is a safe method for preventing fleas and ticks and can be used on lactating mums as well as puppies from when they’re 7 weeks old. As well as these two great benefits of Advantix, it is also water resistant, so there’s no need for your dog to stop loving life.
A handy tip for when you are applying Advantix to the back of your dog’s neck is to make sure they’re standing. If your dog is less than 25kg the whole of the solution can go between their shoulder blades onto their skin, a dog above 25kg should have the formula split between their shoulder blades and their back.
