Luckily, with K9 Advantix® II, new fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further infestation for at least 4 weeks. As fleas die they are no longer able to stay hidden against your dog's skin, and therefore you may also be seeing dying fleas coming to the surface of your dog's fur coat.
