How Advantix works on ticks:
Once Advantix has been applied, it quickly spreads to the complete surface area of your dog?s hair and skin.
Ticks are repelled as soon as they come into contact with an Advantix-treated dog: Advantix does this by hyper-exciting the fine nerve endings of their feet (the so-called ?hot foot effect?) so they leave your dog before they have a chance to bite and attach. However, this short contact is enough to subsequently kill them.
If parasites do not bite or attach, they cannot transmit the diseases they may carry.
How to use:
For dogs up to 10 kg body weight: administer the entire contents of the pipette between the hair on the shoulder blades.
For dogs over 10 kg body weight: administer the entire contents of the pipette between the hair on four sites on the back from shoulder to tail base.
