Can you apply K9 Advantix before 30 days?
Yes, if after two weeks the flea preventive you applied isn’t working, you can reapply flea treatment early, or switch to another brand. I recommend using Advantix or a chewable prescription product from your vet, like Bravecto, Nexgard, Simparica, or Credelio. This recommendation is unrelated to Petco or PetCoach.
