This product has ONE job - and it does it well
After years of trying everything (topical applications, pills, baths, daily combing) to keep fleas off my cats, I finally found Activyl. It works like a miracle! I have been using Activyl for several years and don't have any plans to change. My cats go outdoors, so I still check for ticks, as this product ONLY KILLS FLEAS. But it REALLY KILLS FLEAS. No more itching, no more flea dirt, no more flea bombing the house.

No good.
Used about 3 weeks ago. My dog didn't have too many ticks but she still needed treatment for the ones she did have. 3 weeks later to now and my dog has way more ticks than before this treatment. I am very disappointed at this product. Do not reccomend.

You'll never find anything better
Activyl is far better than anything else on the market. 3yrs ago my 3 pommeranians got these horrible fleas from my brothers house. He had fleas so bad in his house and yard that you got bit as soon as u walked in. With mine I tried K-9 advantage, frontline, the pill, and an injection all at or from the vet's office. Plus I used the yard and house treatment. Nothing worked and my poor babies acted like I just made the fleas more active. My vet said the fleas were used to the products therefore having no effect on them. I had to figure out something. I looked online for anything that showed promise. I found a article in Florida about how Activyl was the only thing helping with the severe sand flea crisis they were having. So I figured I've spent $100's trying to get rid of those stupid bugs, what would hurt to try. I could only find it at petmeds.com. I ordered enough to treat my 3 and my brothers 2 dogs and 2 cats. The first day they were itching worse than ever, but that night they were sleeping peacefully. After a few days my brothers house was free of fleas. I took my dogs in to my vet to show him since he was having problems too. He now treats his dogs with it, as well as tells his patients bout it. After we treated I never had fleas again til a few months ago. I ordered it again and I'm pleased to say it still works great. So I don't have any other advice but that if you CAN'T STAND seeing your fur babies SUFFER, please do yourself and your precious baby the favor. By the way, other flea meds work by pesticides being put on the skin that can hurt your baby then the flea has to bit to die. Activyl is applied to skin but the just has to touch it. Then it start breaking down the enzymes of the fleas body. NO BITING. Your baby will roll around your house, spreading the treatment. It never damaged my carpets or couches. You don't need and sprays to treat the house or yard. The fleas have to go back to ur pet, which means as soon as they touch your pet they die. Only rule is don't bathe them with flea shampoo. Other than that enjoy freeing ur pet of their pest.

Fantastic for fleas on cats and dogs
I purchased this product for my cats and dog! After using another brand for years it just stopped working. I must say the fleas disappeared. The only thing I don’t like is my outside cat’s have been riddled with ticks! I know your product does say kills and repel ticks so I’m not blaming the product for that. I wish you had a product that works for ticks as well.

It will be up to your discretion if you thing the 4-14lbs or the 15-22lbs would be good for your furry baby. You can start off with the 4-14lbs but once again it is up to you. You can also ask your veterinarian to be sure what will be best for your furry baby.

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. It kills not only adult fleas but also flea eggs and larvae, thereby breaking the flea lifecycle.

For dogs only, use Activyl Protector Band to protect against fleas and ticks for up to 6 months.For heartworm protection, try Ivermectin Pyrantel - Generic to Heartgard Plus.

For:

Cats/Kittens and Dogs/Puppies (8+ weeks of age)

Benefits:

  • New technology for flea control
  • Kills fleas, flea eggs and larvae
  • Breaks the flea lifecycle
  • Quick-drying and fragrance-free
  • Waterproof even after bathing

How does Activyl work?

Activyl works to break the flea 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 the most important thing I should know about Activyl?

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. Activyl is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Activyl to my pet?

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.

How should Activyl be applied?

Use Activyl 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. DO NOT USE ACTIVYL FOR DOGS ON CATS. For cats, use only Activyl specifically formulated for cats and kittens.

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.

Activyl for Dogs & Puppies, 8+ weeks of age offers monthly dosing in 5 sizes from 4 lbs to 132 lbs.
Activyl for Cats and Kittens, 8+ weeks of age offers monthly dosing in two sizes: 2-9 lbs & 9+ lbs.

What are the potential 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 happens if I miss giving a dose of Activyl?

Apply the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and apply the next one as directed. Do not apply a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Activyl?

Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

What should I avoid while giving Activyl to my pet?

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.

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.

What other drugs will affect Activyl?

Certain medications can interact with pesticides. Consult a veterinarian before using on medicated pets.

This product has ONE job - and it does it well
After years of trying everything (topical applications, pills, baths, daily combing) to keep fleas off my cats, I finally found Activyl. It works like a miracle! I have been using Activyl for several years and don't have any plans to change. My cats go outdoors, so I still check for ticks, as this product ONLY KILLS FLEAS. But it REALLY KILLS FLEAS. No more itching, no more flea dirt, no more flea bombing the house.

No good.
Used about 3 weeks ago. My dog didn't have too many ticks but she still needed treatment for the ones she did have. 3 weeks later to now and my dog has way more ticks than before this treatment. I am very disappointed at this product. Do not reccomend.

You'll never find anything better
Activyl is far better than anything else on the market. 3yrs ago my 3 pommeranians got these horrible fleas from my brothers house. He had fleas so bad in his house and yard that you got bit as soon as u walked in. With mine I tried K-9 advantage, frontline, the pill, and an injection all at or from the vet's office. Plus I used the yard and house treatment. Nothing worked and my poor babies acted like I just made the fleas more active. My vet said the fleas were used to the products therefore having no effect on them. I had to figure out something. I looked online for anything that showed promise. I found a article in Florida about how Activyl was the only thing helping with the severe sand flea crisis they were having. So I figured I've spent $100's trying to get rid of those stupid bugs, what would hurt to try. I could only find it at petmeds.com. I ordered enough to treat my 3 and my brothers 2 dogs and 2 cats. The first day they were itching worse than ever, but that night they were sleeping peacefully. After a few days my brothers house was free of fleas. I took my dogs in to my vet to show him since he was having problems too. He now treats his dogs with it, as well as tells his patients bout it. After we treated I never had fleas again til a few months ago. I ordered it again and I'm pleased to say it still works great. So I don't have any other advice but that if you CAN'T STAND seeing your fur babies SUFFER, please do yourself and your precious baby the favor. By the way, other flea meds work by pesticides being put on the skin that can hurt your baby then the flea has to bit to die. Activyl is applied to skin but the just has to touch it. Then it start breaking down the enzymes of the fleas body. NO BITING. Your baby will roll around your house, spreading the treatment. It never damaged my carpets or couches. You don't need and sprays to treat the house or yard. The fleas have to go back to ur pet, which means as soon as they touch your pet they die. Only rule is don't bathe them with flea shampoo. Other than that enjoy freeing ur pet of their pest.

My vet told me that we needed to switch to activyl from our other flea brand. It definitely works! The fleas died immediately! So happy now.

Fantastic for fleas on cats and dogs
I purchased this product for my cats and dog! After using another brand for years it just stopped working. I must say the fleas disappeared. The only thing I don’t like is my outside cat’s have been riddled with ticks! I know your product does say kills and repel ticks so I’m not blaming the product for that. I wish you had a product that works for ticks as well.

It will be up to your discretion if you thing the 4-14lbs or the 15-22lbs would be good for your furry baby. You can start off with the 4-14lbs but once again it is up to you. You can also ask your veterinarian to be sure what will be best for your furry baby.
