Advantix For Dogs
Designed specifically for dogs, Advantix harnesses a patented combination of two proven ingredients, Imidacloprid (from Advantage) and Permethrin, to protect your dog from ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and sandflies.
Advantix is the only spot-on product that not only kills ticks, but actually repels them. Repelled ticks drop off your dog before they have the chance to bite or attach.

|Actions||Imidacloprid is a chloronicotinyl nitroguanidine synthesised from the nitromethylene class of compounds. It binds to the insect's nicotinyl receptor sites on the postsynaptic neurones, disrupting normal nerve transmission. Imidacloprid kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides sp.) rapidly, and larval flea stages in the pet's surroundings are killed following contact with the treated pet.Permethrin is a type I pyrethroid insecticide. Pyrethroids affect the voltage gated sodium channels in vertebrates and nonvertebrates. They are open channel blockers, affecting the channel by slowing both its activation and inactivation properties. The prolongation of the sodium channel leads to a stable hyperexcitation state.|
