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.
Dogs/Puppies (8 weeks or older)
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.
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.

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.
