K9 Advantix Vs Frontline Plus

by | Jan 23, 2021 | Knowledge Center

There are so many choices when it comes to protecting your pet from fleas and ticks. You can choose the store-bought version, however, these products are not as effective as a product with more potency. Two of the most widely used products are K9 Advantix® and Frontline Plus®. Let’s discuss the differences between the two.

The Flea Collar used to be the only choice and then the store-bought products came about. Frontline Plus® came on the market in the 90’s. Frontline Plus® contains ingredients that have never before been used for flea and tick control. Ingredients include S-Methropene and Fipronil. Fortunately we have other alternatives to the ineffective flea collar.

S-Methropene is a juvenile hormone. This hormone is a growth regulator. Hormone growth regulators must not be present to keep the pupa from molting to an adult insect.This helps breakdown the life cycle. The other ingredient, Fipronil is an insecticide and helps attack the central nervous system of the insect. It takes time for the poison to affect the insect which gives it time to go back to it’s colony and help destroy the others.

K9 Advantix® and Frontline Plus® both kill fleas and ticks. They also,are both waterproof. They both contain 2 pesticides to kill both pests. However, Frontline Plus® is safe for cats and after the application dries it is perfectly safe for children. K9 Advantix® is lethal to cats and is questionably safe for children for a few days. Frontline Plus® is also safe for pregnant and lactating pets.

Frontline Plus® is a topical product and should be applied to your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Make sure to get the product on the skin and not just the fur. It is a one spot product so you apply the entire amount to that one spot. Once applied it starts killing fleas and ticks within 18 hours and continues to be effective for 30 days. You can buy this product at your local vet’s office or on-line. There is no prescription necessary.

Let’s review the advantages of Frontline Plus®:

  1. Effective
  2. Gentle
  3. Easy to Use
  4. Cost Effective
  5. Waterproof
  6. Safe
  7. Convenient

Make sure to research on-line for the best value for flea and tick protection. Most importantly, make sure you are providing some type of pest control for your pet so they will be healthy and happy.
