What is Activyl?

Activyl is a monthly spot-on flea treatment that works like no other flea product on the market. Activyl works by using a method called bioactivation, a method in which the active ingredient, indoxacarb is fully activated by using the flea's own enzymes. Activyl can be used for both dogs and cats, and kills not only adult fleas, but also flea eggs and larvae too; thereby, breaking the flea's lifecycle.

For dogs only, use Activyl Tick Plus to protect against ticks.

For:

Cats/Kittens and Dogs/Puppies (8 weeks or older)

Benefits:
  • New technology for flea control
  • Kills fleas, flea eggs and larvae
  • 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. Activyl is spread through your pet's skin and coat. When a flea lands on your pet, it takes up the active ingredient of Activyl and causes the enzymes in the flea to change. Activyl then reaches its 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 is waterproof, quick-drying, and fragrance free.

Cautions:

Do not use Activyl for dogs on cats, or allow your cat to lick or groom a dog treated with Activyl. Do not use on cats or kittens under 2 lbs, or dogs or puppies under 4 lbs, and no kittens or puppies under 8 weeks of age. Certain medications may interact with pesticides. If signs of sensitivity occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Brand Name:

Activyl

Generic Name:

Indoxacarb

What is Activyl used for:

Activyl is a monthly spot-on flea treatment that works like no other flea product on the market. Activyl works by a method called bioactivation. This method uses the flea's own enzymes to change Activyl into its fully active form. It kills not only adult fleas, but it also kills eggs and larvae too; thereby, breaking the flea's lifecycle.

Availability of Activyl:

Activyl is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How Activyl should be used:

Use Activyl for Dogs, on dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age or older. It is available as 0.51 ml applicators for dogs 4.1-14 lbs, 0.77 ml applicators for dogs 14.1-22 lbs, 1.54 ml applicators for dogs 22.1-44 lbs, 3.08 ml applicators for dogs 44.1-88 lbs and 4.62 ml applicators for dogs 88.1-132 lbs. It is also available for cats 2-9 lbs in 0.51 ml applicators and cats over 9 lbs in 1.03 ml applicators. It lasts for a full 30 days.

To apply Activyl for small dogs and cats:

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. 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:

Individual sensitivities while rare, may occur after using any pesticide product. In cats, accidental ingestion may cause intermittent salivation, licking of the face, shaking of the head, and squinting.

What special precautions are there:

Do not use on pregnant or lactating females. Do not use on puppies or kittens under 8 weeks of age. Use the entire contents on each cat or 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 dog. Consult your vet before using on debilitated, aged, or medicated dogs. Certain medications can interact with pesticides. If signs of sensitivity occur, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Causes eye irritation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling and before eating, drinking, chewing gum, using tobacco, or using the toilet.

If swallowed:

Call a physician or poison control center or a doctor for treatment advice. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water and do not induce vomiting unless told to by poison control center. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

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, continue rinsing. Call a physician or poison control center or a doctor for treatment advice.

If on skin:

Wash thoroughly with plenty of soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

In the event of overdose:

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

How should I store Activyl:

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.

Activyl is rated 4.1707 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have tried multiple flea products, and this is the only one that works, even after bathing my dog. I kept hearing my family complain about the products they were previously using as well, and ended up switching to Activyl too, and have experienced no fleas. I recommend it to anyone looking for a flea med that actually works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless.. I wouldn't use on cats I live in California where, with the drought, the flea problem has gotten really bad. I had to go to oral, NexGard which works great, for my dogs and the cats have tried Advantage, Frontline, Seresto collars & even Revolution with terrible results. So I bought this and its been on them a week. They still scratch all day and night. I have hardwood floors so they aren't hiding.. this just isn't working. I wouldn't waste my money. I'm not sure whats going to work but I'm moving on to the next one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Activyl I have two dog's, & have tried several different brand's of flea prevention! Nothing I tried would help any longer than one week..... My poor dog's were constantly miserable & always scratching from flea's! Four month's ago I bought some Activyl to try... this stuff work's excellent!..... My dog's & I are very thankful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got rid of the fleas Dog is allergic to Frontline (makes him sick), and Comfortis did less than nothing for the fleas. Tried this in one last attempt to help the dog (and us, as he is an inside dog). And we have no fleas and the dog doesn't get sick for a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works. This works great for my two indoor cats. I apply it at the first sign of a flea and then an infestation just never happens. People who are complaining that it doesn't work, if you have an animal that spends most of its time outdoors, then fleas are going to happen. It doesn't matter if you drench your animal's fur in cyanide or whatever (don't), fleas are going to hop onto your pet and they will take a while to die. You can't really be upset about a product not working if you are literally making your family pet sleep outside in the dirt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worked for about a week and a half I'm so fed up with fleas! Living in the south, fleas are hard to get rid of! They are immune to Advantage 2 so I ventured out and tried this on both my cats and dog (separate ones for cats and dogs) and it worked for about a week and a half! Now I have to find the next flea medicine to spenda small fortune on..... I will definitely keep y'all southerners updated on what isn't/ is working

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing that worked! I am an owner of 3 Dogs (indoor/outdoor) and 2 inside cats. We used to use Advantix ll on the dogs. It worked well for a while, but stopped working and we ended up with a severe case of fleas inside and outside! Nothing worked to kills these mutant fleas! I found this stuff, I was wary because of the price and fear of it not working. But I was disparate!! It was amazing! Shortly after putting it on the cats you would see the flea(s) coming to the top of the fur drunk like and dying! Its not very greasy and no smell. Well worth the MONEY!

Q&A

I have a tick issue. No matter what i do in my back yard/ front yard. Professional extermination companies have not solved the issue. Most likely because they don't want to kill my doggys. . I am going to try Seresto . if this don't work any ideas?

if using a vial of lg. dog activyl for cat that is 10 lbs. what is correct dosage

Asked by: elixir
As a licensed pharmacy, we can only recommend applying the correct tube on your furry baby according to your furry baby's weight. This prevents over or under medicating your furry baby.

Shelf Life

Does Activyl Spot On for Cats have a shelf life?
Asked by: Anonymous
Like most topical flea protection products. Activyl does not have an expiration date. Stored properly and Activyl will continue to be effective.
