Advantix for Flea Control

K9 Advantix II for flea control

As a dog owner, you know the importance of maintaining your pet's active and healthy lifestyle. In addition to regular exercise and a healthy diet, your dog also needs protection against parasites, like fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Using a monthly flea preventative, like K9 Advantix II, can help reduce your pet's chances of attracting fleas.

Depending on where you live, flea season can last anywhere from several months to all year long. For instance, in Florida, fleas can live year-round due to the warm temperatures and humidity. But what if you don't reside in these regions? Does that mean you only need protection in the summer? Not entirely.

Given the appropriate conditions, fleas can survive indoors for months at a time. Plus, fleas can be transferred between animals. Preventing a flea outbreak in your home and on your pet is much easier than having to fight a full-blown flea infestation, which can take weeks or even months until they dead.

If your pet already has fleas, the first step is to use a flea medicine like K9 Advantix II. It starts to work within minutes of application and continues to kill 98-100% of fleas in 12 hours.

And if your pet has fleas, then your home is infected as well. Flea eggs and larvae do not live on your dog, but in the pet's environment, in areas like carpets and bedding. To eliminate fleas in your home you will need to use home and yard flea control products such as a room fogger and carpet powder. In addition to flea control products, 1800PetMeds sells everything you need to kill fleas in your home.

Buying your pet meds online, including your dog's flea medicine is a great way to save time and money. With the wide selection of products offered on 1800PetMeds.com, deals and discounts on your dog's pet supplies are just a click or phone call away.

Place your order with 1800PetMeds and experience the savings and convenience our 8 million customers have already discovered.
