FrontLine & K9 Advantix


Recommended Posts

Hello All! K9 Advantix is just imported in my country(Thailand) and I really like to know how it's difference from FrontLine. I have used Frontline for my dogs for long long time and thought it's very good. But K9 Advantix can repel and kill mosquitoes which Frontline can't,so I'd like to test it. Does anyone use K9 Advantix and Frontline? Please tell me more about K9 Advantix. . .Thank you so much in advance :)

advantix is a combo product of advantage (active ingredient imidacloprid) and permethrin. personally i would not use anything on my animals that contains permethrin, it's just too much of a risky substance. as a side note, advantix should not be used on any dog if he or she has any contact with cats at all, since it is toxic to them.

frontline has fipronil as an active ingredient.

to learn more, you can do google searches on imidacloprid, fipronil and permethrin.

i don't know, but i do know that permethrin is highly toxic to cats.

dogs tolerate it better but it's still not something i'd want on mine. i don't even like using flea shampoos that contain permethrin or its derivatives.
