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.

Overall: wonderful My dog has never gone one summer without fleas, even with consistent usage of Advantix and Comfortis. However, with Activyl, I'm so happy to say she is flea-free for the first summer ever in the 5 years I've had her. However, I did deduct a star because I've found 2 ticks on her. It was no big deal; I removed them quickly; however, she has never had a tick prior to using this, so suffice it to say, the tick prevention may not be very effective. Overall though, with only 2 ticks found, I'm more than happy with Activyl. 09/26/2014
Amazing for fleas I've used many products in the past: Frontline, Advantix, Seresto...but nothing has worked as well as Activyl Tick Plus. Frontline and Advantix don't seem to work anymore against fleas (did they change the formula?)...and my dogs HATED wearing the Seresto collar. My vet switched to Activyl at the beginning of this year and the results have been great! I haven't seen 1 flea (or tick) all year. Activyl does leave a wet spot after application, but I simply wash the spots with a damp cloth and brush it out after it dries (at my vet's recommendation). If fleas are an issue in your area, I'd definitely recommend giving Activyl Tick Plus a try. 09/02/2014
Brittany Spaniel I've been using Actyvil Tick Plus on my Brittany (spaniel) since we've had her - 7 months. APPLICATION I am very careful to apply it exactly 4 weeks as directed. If needed, I bathe my dog the Saturday before, then apply the medicine on Wednesday, and then do not bathe her again until the following Saturday. I have to bathe her that following Saturday usually to remove the greasy spot. PROS: --> No fleas! We haven't had a flea. We even visited someone who had fleas, and returned back without a single flea on her and I haven't seen one in my house. --> OK with repelling ticks We went camping one weekend in June - real camping in a tent, and she didn't get a single tick or flea the entire time. We checked her thinking she would have something, but she was clean. I have only seen a single tick on her and that was after walking in some particularly heavy undergrowth near a lake. The tick had already bitten her and I had to remove it. I docked 1 star for effectiveness, but I still think the performance of the product is good. CONS --> Greasiness As stated by others, it does leave a greasy spot. It's not terrible with my dog's fur, and I'm usually bothered by that type of thing. It does feel sort of gross if you touch that area. Granted, brittany spaniels have a single coat of fur (and no under coat like german shepherds or goldens), so this may account for the difference in the greasiness. For me, it does go away by itself, mostly if she rolls around in dirt playing the dirt sort of 'sticks' to it (it looks gross since she's mostly white dog) and then the greasiness sort of dissipates away. It will go away also with puppy shampoo and water. I usually do this 2 days after application. It's even been as simple for me before as putting some puppy shampoo on a rag and just lathering the area behind her shoulders then rinsing with water - if I don't have time for a complete bath. When my vet recommended this to us - she did say the most common complaint was the greasiness. --> Temporary itchiness It also does seem to make my dog itch a little bit. We really only notice it on the day of application, she'll occasionally stop and scratch - but it doesn't seem to be significantly bothering, and if she had fleas I think she'd be scratching a lot more. --> Price Compared to other topical flea and tick medicines on the market, this does seem to be one of the more expensive. I haven't had experience with other topical to know if the price vs. effectiveness is worth it and cannot comment on that. All in all I'd say it's a product that worth trying. 08/08/2014
Great product I have 3 dogs on this product and love it. The main reason I started it was my Bischon has a problem with flies. The vet started me on this and we have had no fleas for almost a year. He does get a tick once in awhile by his ear same with my Blue healer and Australian Shepard but one once in a month isn't nothing to 5-10 I was getting off of them in a days time. I will keeping using this product as long as I can. 08/02/2014
very effective This year has been horrible for ticks, here in Tennessee! In the spring, I was first using Frontline Plus, which, by the way, does not repel ticks, only kills them after they are already attached. Every single day, I still had to remove ticks, alive and dead, from my Australian shepherd puppy...three to four a day! This was particularly bad because my puppy, who is very sensitive to ticks bites, developed allergic reactions at the site of the bites, that made it very painful for him to remove the ticks. I also used to find ticks crawling on the floor in the house, that my dog brought in. Many times I even found ticks on myself! I was really beginning to get paranoid. Then, I switched to Activyl Tick Plus. This stuff is amazing!!! I have not seen a tick on him, since I've started to use it 4 months ago . There are no more ticks on the floor....and, more importantly, there are no more ticks on me. If you take your dog hiking or playing on the grass in areas known to be infested with ticks, you must use this product. By the way, about the greasy residue on the fur that some people complained about... personally, I much rather deal with the greasy residue on my dog's fur, than to have him die of some infectious disease. Anyway, It's really not that bad and it does come out , eventually, on his own. It really was not as big of a deal to me, as some people made it sound. My dog has gotten worse things on his fur, and they surely did not even kill the ticks! 07/31/2014

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: 
My groomer told me that you should wait for at least 3 days before you bathe your dog, and most importantly, make sure that you use a soap free shampoo, otherwise you'll 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.
