Misleading tube dispecers.
The tubes are 1mm, unlike other tubes on the market for a 4kg dog only need 0.4mm. Tubes are deceptive to use on small dogs. Seriously bad reaction to dose
Purchased in June 2021 at Budget Pet Products for $70.29.
2 weeks after I applied this product to my dog the correct way, there are big fat attached healthy ticks on my dog. Product not working Dont get why. My vet said it was one of the best treatments available.

No product in the tubes
Tubes should contain 4 mL of medicine,most only contain 1 mL. I bought 12 tubes and all are the same. I used a syringe to remove product from tube. It takes 4 tubes to get the correct dose for an extra large dog.

Is not 100% effective. I found a tick on my dog that was engorged.
I have been using Advantix 2 for years on my dog. Recently I found a tick on my dog that was engorged. We are in an area where there are Lyme carrying ticks so I am really concerned. I thought it was suppose to be 100% effective. Now I have to wait 5 to7 weeks to see if she shows signs of having Lyme disease. I can't believe this is happening.
Doesn’t help at all against ticks
I bought Advantix especially to protect my dog from ticks as we are in high tick season and she had so many lately.
My dog has 23.3 kg, so is fully in the range for medium dogs (10 kg-25 kg).
I applied it properly in the neck and along the spine. That was 4 days ago. She didn’t have a bath or a swim meanwhile.
My dog is still full of happy, alive, fat ticks. I found 4 ticks alone today, 2 of them fat like a fingernail, so they had a really good meal. The effect of Advantix on ticks is zero!
I can’t talk about flees, my dog doesn’t have them, but against ticks Advantix is a waste of money.

Remains oily with lots of residue for days
I have given the amp a good shake before applying and each time I have applied this product it remains oily and tends to run a fair way which I understand is the carier but the residue like dandruff is awful.This continues for more than 2 days.
My happy and healthy 20 lbs 8 y.o. Havanese have never had issues with any preventative meds until I put this poison on him. Three day later, he is still having seizures, respiratory issues, fever, and depression. In the past three days, we spent one night in the emergency room and today at his regular vet. Stay away from Bayer, Merck, and other merchants of death, and buy a good tick collar or chewable alternative instead. And if they ever tell you it is harmless to apply carcinogenic neurotoxins, ask them to demonstrate that point by applying them on their children first.

Product kept fleas away in past. Previously dog was not as energetic after applications but survived.
Be cautious useing this product. Last application (around 7pm) caused healthy happy and loving 4 year old cocker spaniel to be admitted to vet hospital. A few hours after application dog became slightly uncomfortable. By next day dogs entire body was tense like he was flexing all of his muscles at the same time. Breathing sounded raspy. He had a difficult time panting as he would stop and start panting continuously like he wanted to pant but something was stopping him. Stayed in same spot for 2 days. Would eat and drink if food and water w...as brought to him. Only went outside to pee when carried. Became paralyzed in hind legs and refused water and food at the end of day 2 (48 hours after application). Day 3 dogs facial expressions, seem like he is ready to go for walks and play fetch but his body is still tense and he can no longer walk. Taken to vet and left there on day 3. The evening of day 2 dog became paralyzed in hind legs. Didnt pee or po for over 24 hours. Could no longer be carried outside due to pain (dog would bite you) On days one and two dog was able to walk but he walked wobbly with legs not in correct position sort of sticking out. Very strange. Dog is at vet now and prognosis is bad if he cannot regain movement of hind legs he will have to be put down. I am in shock as I am not ready to put my dog down he is only 4.

Great product and works perfect for my Bulldog
Great product and works perfect for my Bulldog.
I don't understand why this product has bad reviews.
My Bulldog got attacked by flies on his ears and nothing worked but this product!
I used sprays and creams on his ears and this is the only product that keeps the flies away!

Kills fleas, ticks, and dogs
I never leave reviews, but I hope to save someone the heartache of missing their best friend. My dog is well within the weight limit (6 month cane corso) and has never had health issues. Very healthy puppy. After applying this she could not eat, drink, barely breathe, or move. I had to carry her just to pee. Defecated herself because she's unable to move. I called the 1800 and was told to bathe her and take her to a vet. Thanks no thanks! Please find something else to give to your dog

Shih T'zu having a horrible reaction.
I bought Advantix on Friday and administered it on my 11 year old Shih T'zu. Throughout the evening and night he was digging at his backside and very itchy, rolling over trying to scratch uncontrollably. He is also twitching and jumps up from his sleep and can't seem to settle. This has been day 3 and the same thing this morning, very itchy, biting at his backside and very jerky. I called the vet and was told to watch him. I would never use this product again and I hope this settles down very soon. We have used other products with no problems.

Shih T'zus BEWARE.
Put this crap on my poor wee Shih T'zu. Took him for a walk less than an hour later. After 5 minutes he sat down which he Never does on a walk. Coaxed him back up for 100 ft + he did the same thing. 3rd time he lay right down + wouldn't get up. I had to carry him home. He was very lethargic. I bathed + scrubbed him well + rinsed with lots of water. Now he is suffering tremors. Most reports I have read that state these symptoms all mention Shih T'zus. Willy's symptoms are: lethargy, weakness in back legs, full body tremors. Hopefully he will eat + drink tomoro.

Disappointing: worked for less than 2 weeks.
I applied as directed and did not bathe my crossbreed dog (to avoid reducing its effectiveness) but after 13 days she had a lot of fleas. Will not be buying again.

Questions & Answers
Hi, Help please, my dog (StaffyX 7yrs) is currently getting steroids (Prednisolone) as well as antibiotics (Cephalexin) for her excessive scratching/hotspots and is also currently on heat. Her monthly Advantix treatment would be due now. Can I safely give it to her or would that be an overload on medication? Thanks in advance
What happens when a dog takes advantix and is currently on medication?
Is it safe to use out of date advantix.
Should be fine as long as its not too out of date (less than 12 mos out of date). The expiry usually has a bit of lee way
And it will be safe to use - the worry is wether it will still be effective. If the box was stored in a cool place thats even better but if in direct sunlight not as good and you may not want to push the expiry to much
Stephen This product isnt very safe to use while it is in date, I certainly would NOT use it out of date.
