Apply the Correct Dosage

K9 Advantix II products are specifically formulated and tested for efficacy and safety on dogs of specific weight ranges. The full dose of the correct product needs to be administered on a monthly basis. Control measures may fail if the manufacturer’s instructions on the label aren’t adhered to closely. Don’t under-dose or over-dose pets. Under-dosing sometimes occurs when pet owners split treatments between different dogs. Under-dosing can also arise from toxicity fears.

Re-dosing Early

Don’t apply more than one tube per treatment, even for larger dogs. Under normal circumstances, one dose will last 4 weeks. However, in severe flea infestations, re-treatment is allowable earlier in order to establish control. In these situations, don’t retreat more often than once every 7 days. Once flea control is attained, return to a monthly re-treatment schedule.

    I accidentally ordered the size up in flea treatment thinking my dog would weigh 55lbs. But he is only about 45lbs. And I gave him the flea treatment. Will he generally be okay?

      I don’t have the qualifications to answer this question, due to legal liabilities. I’d recommend contacting your dog’s veterinarian to address this concern. Sorry I can’t help more.

    What is the per pound? If a 55 b dog gets a 2.5 mL dosage, isn’t it that .05 mL per pound. So a 60 lb dog would gt 3 mL – yes or no.

      There is no specific dose per pound. The dosages are based on four weight ranges, as found on the labeling and in this article. The labeling should be adhered to for dosage. I can’t legally recommend any off-label usage. If you have a question specific to an unusual case, it would be best to contact a veterinarian.

    My Rhodesian Ridgeback weighs 130 lbs. Will one tube for dogs over 55 pounds work or should I use two tubes?

    • Adam Retzer July 30, 2017, 7:45 pm

      I am not a licensed professional, and thus can only advise you to adhere to the labeled instructions. If you are worried that this dosage is insufficient, I’d recommend asking your dog’s vet.

    My dog weighs 10.5 lbs. which should I use

    • Adam Retzer September 28, 2017, 3:42 pm

      This is a good question. I’d assume that either the small or medium product would be effective and safe, however I can’t recommend either as I’m not certified to advise off-label use. I’d contact your vet to see which product would be safest and most effective.
