Advantix repels ticks. The great advantage of this is that it can repel a tick before it bites your dog. Any ticks attached prior to application of Advantix will be killed by the product but will remain attached.
Advantix continues to be effective after a treated dog is exposed to water. This allows the dog to continue to participate in swimming and being bathed.
Advantix flea and tick control is manufactured by Bayer Australia Ltd.

Owners of growing dogs need to be aware of any changes in their dog's weight to ensure that the appropriate dose is given to protect their dog as it grows.
Tips and Tricks for Using Advantix for Dogs
Dogs generally accept the administration of spot-on treatments fairly well. However if your dog doesn't co-operate, using distraction techniques may be of benefit. Having another person pat the dog or offer a small treat at the time of application is often beneficial for such animals.
If your dog likes to roll in the dirt or grass immediately after application, take the dog for a walk immediately after application to ensure it is not rubbed off.
After every application of Advantix, owners should consider placing a marker on the calendar for the next due date to ensure continuity of protection and avoid forgetting a dose.
