How does K9 Advantix II for Dogs work?
When you apply K9 Advantage to your pet, it spreads at the hair root level over the skin's surface, assisted by the movement of the body, which provides all-over coverage. This revolutionary chemistry impairs the flea's nervous system, which kills the flea. Since reinfestation is likely to come from outdoors or the pet's environment, those new fleas will also be killed within 2 hours. K9 Advantage protects your pet from further infestation of fleas for up to one month.
