Igor I live in the private sector, and every year I take a few ticks off my own shepherd after walking. I decided to get rid of this inconvenience and bought Advantiks drops. The result was surprised: after the treatment, my pet never brought home blood-sucking insects. Very useful tool.

But recently there has been a trip to nature, and here on the Internet I’ve been reading terrible posts about animals coming just hung with ticks (just the trip turned out to be at the very peak of tick activity). On the advice of the veterinarian, she acquired this remedy - as a result, the animal is healthy and not bitten by anyone. Thanks to the manufacturers!
Marina. I was surprised when I found fleas in my Chinese Crested, because I constantly bathed her. Among the majority of funds from these insects Advantiks chose due to the large number of positive reviews. The tool really helped - the wool became clean, and the animal stopped behaving restlessly.

Mechanism of action
After applying Advantix® drops on the withers of an animal, the active substances quickly spread out over the entire surface of the body, becoming fixed in the hair and lipid layer of dog skin. Active components not only scare away the parasites, but also kill them.
The insect, which has already fallen on the coat, is not able to gain a foothold there, experiencing the so-called effect of “burned legs”. As a result of such a burning contact with the drug, the parasite has no desire to bite the dog, and he usually jumps out of the fur, falls down and dies.
Frequency of use
The developer recommends using Advantix® drops every month (during the period of increased parasite activity), since the protective properties of the drug are maintained for about 28 days after its single use.
It is interesting! Advantiks for dogs will not lose their protective properties if the animal's coat is superficially wetted with water.
Но после длительного пребывания питомца в естественном водоеме или в ванной потребуется повторная обработка, которую производят не чаще 1 раза в неделю.
Состав, форма выпуска
Капли на холку Адвантикс® – это комбинированный инсекто-акарицидный препарат, представляющий собой прозрачную (от желтоватого до коричневого цвета) жидкость со слабым характерным запахом.
В состав адвантикса для собак входят, наряду со вспомогательными, два действующих компонента:
Both active ingredients of Advantix (imidacloprid and permethrin) are quite toxic.. Imidacloprid belongs to the insecticides that are included in the group of chemical compounds, similar in action to nicotine and therefore called neonicotinoids.
Important! For mammals, imidacloprid (in a small dosage) is not dangerous and is considered to be of low toxicity. True, experiments with rats have shown that overdosing of imidacloprid inevitably causes problems with the thyroid gland.
The role of neonicotinoids is to damage the central nervous system of insects and arachnids (ticks), while permethrin (a typical insecticide) acts as a neurotoxin on parasites. Bayer supplies the drug in a polyethylene tube-pipette (packaged in 0.4 ml, 1 ml, 2.5 ml and 4 ml) packed in blisters of 4/6 pieces.
Until the final drying of the droplets on the skin / coat of the animal, it is not allowed to contact it with nearby objects so that the preparation does not get on the furniture, walls and personal items. During the day after Advantix is applied, the dog cannot be bathed and ironed, and also not allowed near children.
The person working with the drug should not eat, smoke or drink during the procedure. After processing, the hands are washed with warm water and soap: this can not be done if you were wearing medical gloves.
It is interesting! Advantix, caught on open skin, can lead to tangible chemical burns. If a toxic liquid (in large volume) accidentally spilled on the skin, the affected area is washed under running water for at least 15–20 minutes, after which it is treated in an outpatient clinic.
Empty tube-pipettes are forbidden to be used for any domestic needs: they are thrown away, having previously been closed with caps. The drug retains its properties for 2 years when properly stored, when the closed factory package is in a dry dark place (at 0–25 ° C), separate from feed and products.
Advantix cost for dogs
Drops on the withers of Advantix® from JSC “Bayer” are sold in stationary veterinary pharmacies and through online stores.
The average price of the drug (depending on the dosage):
- drops on withers Advantics (Bayer) for puppies and dogs up to 4 kg (4 pieces of 0.4 ml) - 1 645 ₽,
- drops on withers Advantics (Bayer) for dogs 4–10 kg (4 pieces of 1 ml) - 1 780 ₽,
- drops on withers Advantics (Bayer) for dogs 10-25 kg (4 pieces of 2.5 ml) - 1 920 ₽,
- drops on withers Advantics (Bayer) for dogs over 25 kg (4 pieces of 4 ml) - 1 470 ₽.
Drops are quite expensive, so they are sold not only packs, but also individually.
For three years, I defended my Yorkshire terrier from all sorts of ectoparasites with the help of Advantix. Drops were applied from April to October, the packaging with 4 pipettes was enough for three months.
In parallel with drops, I used ectoparasite shampoo (unfortunately, I don’t remember the name). Both products, shampoo plus drops advantiks, worked great. Last year, it was not possible to buy shampoo, and we went to the country with a dog treated only with advantix. After a couple of days, she took off her first sucked and swollen tick (and then found others).
After talking with dogmasters, I learned that the drops belong to the first stage of protection, but there must be a second one, which we used as a shampoo for a long time. On the advice of a veterinarian, they also bought a collar from parasites: there were no signs of poisoning, as well as possible allergic reactions.
Now I can’t trust these drops 100% anymore, but I don’t know if there’s any fault with the manufacturer, because I’ve heard that they have started to fake Advantiks.
We have an Alaskan Malamute, in whose wool it is very difficult to find ticks. And when we moved out of town, after the walk, we took 3-4 3-4 ticks off it, despite the regular treatment by Leopard. After once we discovered an already stuck tick, we decided to switch to a more powerful drug and chose one of the most expensive, Advantix.
It will also be interesting:
For one vial laid out 700 rubles. Despite good reviews, we continued to inspect the dog after each walk. Ticks of wool are both removed and removed, that is, Advantix does not protect against their attack (there is hope that it protects against sticking). Mosquitoes do not scare at all: they sit on the face all the time.
The dog moved the procedure of applying drops well, but after a week he started having otitis (although before that the dog had not been sick for 4 years). The doctor suggested that this could be a reaction to drops, since there were no other provocative factors. I consider Advantix a remedy with dubious effectiveness, since I have not noticed its actions.
