Question from Angela Knittle

Is there a difference between K9 Advantix and Advantix ii ? If so, what is the difference? Thanks

Our Vet Says:

Bayer, the manufacturer of Advantix, launched a new product on the market called Advantix II.
Advantix the original version has as active ingredients imidacloprid and permethrin , both insecticides.  This will protect your pet against fleas, ticks, mosquitos and flies.
Advantix II, the new product, has as active permethrin (insecticide) and pyriproxyfen (insect growth regulator). The second ingredient   will prevent eggs and immature forms from developing into adults therefore it is better than the first one.
K9 Advantix II is similar to Frontline Plus.
Both products are once a month treatments and will prevent fleas and ticks for that time as well.
