Advantix – External anti-parasite for dogs
Advantix is an external antiparasitic for dogs that prevents and treats flea infestation. Its unique active ingredients target harmful insects, protecting your dog against fleas, ticks and other pests.
Dogs can get fleas in several ways. One is contact with other dogs infested with fleas during a walk, a game of play in the dog park or green spaces frequented by other puppies. Fleas can also enter the owner’s home by attaching themselves to socks, pants or shoes.
Biotur makes available to legal entities Advantix, the external antiparasitic specially designed for dogs.
ADVANTIX – ANTI-PARASITE TOPICAL MEDICINE
Fleas and ticks the dog can contract must be removed from the animal’s skin as soon as possible to avoid dermatological problems such as dermatitis, psoriasis or other more severe symptoms.
Each pipette contains the substances imidacloprid and permethrin. The product can also be used as part of the treatment strategy against flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). The product exhibits acaricidal and repellent (removal) activity for up to four weeks (Rhipicephalus sanguineous, Ixodes ricinus) or three weeks (Dermacentor reticulatus) against tick infestations.
EXTERNAL ANTI-PARASITE FOR DOGS – SYMPTOMS
To identify if the pet is infested with fleas or ticks, there are several symptoms that the owner can observe, namely:
- Intense scratching, especially in the neck area
- Redness in the affected area
- Bumps or bumps on the dog’s skin
Also, the owners must be constantly attentive and check the dog’s fur and skin, especially in the area of the ears, neck, paws and belly.
ADVANTIX – METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION
Make a path in the dog’s hair between the shoulder blades and apply the contents of the pipette to the skin without massaging. Place the tip of the single-dose pipette on the skin and squeeze the pipette several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin in several places on the back.
The dosage schedule is as follows:
The minimum recommended dose is: 10 mg/kg live weight (w.w.) imidacloprid and 50 mg/kg live weight (w.w.) permethrin equivalent to 0.1ml/kg w.w.
Treating all dogs in a family (household) is recommended to reduce re-infestations with new fleas. Other pets in the same family or household must be treated with appropriate products.
