What is Activyl Tick Plus?

Activyl Tick Plus is a monthly spot-on flea and tick treatment that contains an innovative new ingredient called indoxacarb to kills fleas, while also containing permethrin to control ticks and reduce the risk of disease. Activyl is fully activated when a flea lands on your pet and is killed using the flea's own enzymes. This brand-new technology is called bioactivation. Activyl Tick Plus is only for dogs and kills ticks, adult fleas, flea eggs and larvae; thereby, breaking the flea's lifecycle.

Find Activyl Tick Plus for Dogs at 1-800-PetMeds
For: Dogs/Puppies (8 weeks or older)
 
Benefits:
New technology for flea control
Kills fleas, flea eggs and larvae
Kills 4 tick species that may transmit disease
Breaks flea's lifecycle
Quick-drying and fragrance free
Waterproof even after bathing

How it works:
Activyl works to break the flea's lifecycle by killing not only adult fleas, but also flea eggs and larvae, which reduces the chances of your pet becoming reinfested by fleas. The ingredients are spread through your dog's skin and coat, and when a flea lands on your pet, it takes up the active ingredient of Activyl Tick Plus and causes the enzymes in the flea to change. Activyl Tick Plus then reaches it's full active form and the flea becomes paralyzed and unable to feed. This process is called bioactivation — the newest technology in flea control. In addition, Activyl Tick Plus is waterproof, quick-drying, and fragrance free. As a bonus, Activyl Tick Plus also contains permethrin, which provides a broad-spectrum tick protection and kills four major tick species, which reduces the risk of your dog contracting a deadly tick-borne disease.

Cautions:
Do not use Activyl Tick Plus on cats, or allow your cat to lick or groom a dog treated with Activyl Tick Plus. Do not use on dogs or puppies under 8 weeks of age or under 4 lbs. Certain medications may interact with pesticides. If signs of sensitivity occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What is Activyl Tick Plus used for: Activyl Tick Plus is a monthly flea and tick treatment for dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age or older and over 4 lbs. It combines indoxacarb to kill fleas, flea eggs, and larvae to stop the flea's lifecycle, and permethrin for tick protection. The ingredient indoxacarb is a new innovative way to kill fleas by using the flea's own enzyme to activate Activyl Tick Plus to its full potential.

Availability of Activyl Tick Plus: Activyl Tick Plus is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How Activyl Tick Plus should be used: Use Activyl Tick Plus on dogs or puppies 8 weeks of age or older, and over 5 lbs. It is available as 0.51 ml applicators for dogs 4.1-11 lbs, 1.0 ml applicators for dogs 11.1-22 lbs, 2.0 ml applicators for dogs 22.1-44 lbs, 4.0 ml applicators for dogs 44.1-88 lbs and 6.0 ml applicators for dogs 88.1-132 lbs.

To use Activyl Tick Plus: Hold the applicator in an upright position away from your face and snap the tip by bending it and folding it back on itself. Part the hair and place the applicator tip against the skin on the base of the skull. Applying Activyl at the base of the skull will help prevent your pet from licking the product. Squeeze the applicator firmly and apply the entire contents directly to the skin (for smaller dogs). Do not allow Activyl to run off and do not have contact with the treated area until it is completely dry. Reapply Activyl every 30 days.
For larger dogs: Start applying the contents between the shoulder blades working your way down to the tail while applying Activyl in 2-3 spots along the way. Make sure you thoroughly part the hair on each spot so the applicator touches the skin and not just the fur.

What are the side effects of Activyl Tick Plus: Individual sensitivities while rare, may occur after using any pesticide product. Do not use on cats, since it may be fatal.

What special precautions are there: Do not use on pregnant or lactating females. Do not use on puppies under 8 weeks of age or under 4 lbs. Do not allow children to apply product. Use the entire contents on each dog and do not split one tube between pets. Weigh your dog to ensure you are applying the right dose formulated for the weight of your pet. Consult your vet before using on debilitated, aged, or medicated pets. Do not use on pets intended for breeding, pregnant or nursing.

Causes substantial but temporary eye injury. Harmful if swallowed or absorbed through skin. Do not get in eyes or on clothing. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet.

If in eyes: Hold eyes open and rinse slowly and gently with water for 15-20 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing. Call a physician if irritation persists.

If on skin: Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse skin immediately with plenty of water for 15-20 minutes. Call a poison control center or doctor for treatment advice.

If swallowed: Call a poison control center or a doctor for treatment advice. Have a person sip a glass of water if able to swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to by a doctor or poison control center. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

In the event of overdose: Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

How should I store Activyl Tick Plus: Do not remove tube from pack until ready to use. Store in a cool (below 77°F) dry place inaccessible to children and pets. Do not refrigerate and protect from direct sunlight.

Causes greasy residue, irritates skin This product turned my little terrier's white neck fur tan and created an ugly unusually oily stain that seemed to spread and worsen by the hour. I decided to give him a bath to remove the messy product after a few days after becoming alarmed over his red, irritated skin. He was also excessively lethargic after this product absorbed into his skin. 03/23/2014
Not the best product This product is highly effective at preventing fleas and ticks, I never saw either on my Golden Retriever for the 5 months I used it. However, the residue left by the product is absolutely horrible. Very greasy and impossible to remove from the dog's hair. Even after bathing the residue does not come out, it transfers to your hand weeks after application. My dog also experienced itching where the product was applied. I have dicontinued use. 03/03/2014
Yay! We bought a vacation home in San Diego, which has a lot of fleas due to the weather. My dog apparently is deathly allergic to them! (We don't have fleas in Phoenix's dry climate). After she lost most of her fur, I took her to the vet and he gave me 3 months supply of this med. Works like a charm! She has not scratched since. I want to note that my husband also sprayed the yard but that wouldn't prevent her from getting fleas on walks. 02/18/2014
Caused Adverse Reactions Unfortunately, we have a very negative experience with this product that caused extreme pain/discomfort in our 14 lb. shihtzu. Approximately 5-6 hours after applying, she started getting very itchy (I thought she might actually have fleas). It progressively got worse, to the point where she was constantly crying and in extreme discomfort if not pain and couldn't go 30 seconds without having to itch. I noticed that she was primarily trying to itch the spot where we applied the treatment. About 8-10 hours after it's application, it got so bad we decided to give her a bath and rinse the product off her completely. It helped for about 15 minutes before she was right back to her previous crying/itching. We tried to relieve the itchiness with a 1/2 dose of Benedryl about every 5-6 hours. It did help, but the only other relief for her seemed to be my husband and I lightly rubbing the area constantly (which we thought was a better alternative to her scratching at it constantly). **NOTE** After talking to our veterinarian, he suggested to continue with the Benedryl and to give her a bath with Dawn Dish Soap. Apparently, this is the only product that will get rid of whatever is in Activyl Plus. He then suggested that if that does not do the trick to take her in for a steroid injection. 01/13/2014
Terrific product We had a horrible infestation of ticks for about 2 months and our little dog doesn't even go outside. This was recommended to me by a person that works at an animal shelter and she raved about. We have been using it for 4 months and our dog is totally perfect now. We recommend this highly. It is expensive, but what isn't now. 12/05/2013

This topical leaves a huge greasy mark on her that she then tries to rub off on the carpet, the furniture, etc. How long after applying can I give her a bath and use shampoo on her? Will the shampoo remove the medication?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We suggest waiting 36-48 hours after application for a bath. The shampoo must be soap free to ensure that it does not remove flea and tick topicals.
