Being quite involved in the world of pets meds this is just a note to let anyone that is interested know that Generic Advantix is now available and for a very low price. It is a perfect replacement for Frontline and is currently over half the price. The generic K9 Advantix works just as well as the branded form but is available for about half the price. We even ordered it ourselves as we have found it is more suitable for the Dogs here in Spain. Here is the link to buy:
UPDATE: I was sad to find out the generic version is no longer available. UNTIL I found somewhere to buy the brand for the same low price. So, we can still make the same savings, see the link for details and the great price.
We have found it to be very efficient at ensuring the Dogs do not have fleas and more importantly for us it really is very effective at stopping ticks. They can be a real problem as the Dogs are always in and out of the rough grass (yes, even in Spain) and the woods.
We did try to buy generic Advantix a while ago but it went out of stock within days so we have now quickly placed a bulk order to take advantage of the prices while it is still available. We have not heard back just how long it will remain in stock for so if you do currently use it I would suggest that you buy sooner rather than later.
Here is just what you can expect from K9 Advantix:
K9 Advantix stops fleas from biting in less than 5 minutes, begins killing fleas within the first hour of application and eliminates 98%-100% of adult fleas and ticks within 12 hours of use. Repels and kills ticks before they attach themselves to your dog, while also repelling and killing mosquitoes before they can bite. The active ingredients, imidacloprid and permethrin, work together for a quick knockdown by affecting the flea, mosquito or tick’s nervous system. Because K9 Advantix provides such quick knockdown of these insects it can helpful in limiting the spread of the West Nile Virus and Lyme disease. It is also ideal for dogs suffering from Flea Allergy Dermatitis.
We decided to use it as an alternative to Frontline Plus as leishmania is a common problem in Europe and it is recommended by local vets as providing more protection. And although not a heartworm medicine it does cut down the chances greatly of the Dogs being bitten by mosquitoes so if you do not currently use a heartworm medicine it will lower the chances of infection.
The prices are ridiculously low so even if you use Frontline or something similar you may like to swap while the generic K9 Advantix is still on offer. The price for a large Dog for a six month supply is $34 so it is about half the price of Frontline Plus, and for smaller Dogs the price simply gets ridiculous. I really do recommend it highly. It gets rid of fleas in minutes, stops ticks ever attaching and helps to stop mosquito bites too so it about as good as it gets. We have now swapped from Frontline as the cover is better and it is about half the price. Take a look at the prices via the above link. I was amazed how cheap it is and I deal with pet meds supplies on a daily basis and bought it while it is still available.
Hope this helps.
