Save

Generally safe to use on dogs who are more than 7 weeks old, Advantix can cause skin irritations, such as burning or tingling sensations, in animals or humans when the medication comes in contact with their skin. Removing the chemicals from the skin quickly helps reduce further discomfort and negative reactions.
