Fleas rise to the top of your pet's coat as they die, so consider it a triumph if you start seeing more fleas at first, after treating your pet. If you’re still seeing fleas after application, it may be because your pet has picked up new fleas from the environment, which may include other pets, surfaces and outdoor areas. It may take up to 30 days to break the entire flea life cycle. Additionally, you should also treat sources of new fleas (i.e., carpet, yard, etc.) to ensure complete flea control.
I have been using this product for the last 4 years. It used to last about 20 days and then stopped working. This latest batch I bought from Chewy which are 2 boxes of this bigger size for my rescue cats does not work at all. I also bought 2 boxes for my smaller cats. I first treat every cat with Capstar and then the next day use this Advantage II. The next day after using this product, there were fleas back on every cat that was treated. It clearly says on the box that it kills fleas and it did not kill them as promised. I am so disappointed because that is $56 a box for 6 doses. I bought 2 of this size box and 2 boxes of the smaller cat size. That is $224.00 plus tax I am out of because this product does not work! I want my money back!!!!! Can anyone please help me? Thanks
A vet had given me Advantage II a year & a half ago. Worked fine, so I started buying it through Chewy to save a few dollars. Never had an issue with my boy. He didn't like getting a monthly application but also didn't get fleas. I put the last application in the box on him today, and within 15 minutes, I noticed muscle tremors. His neck and head are shaking, he's lethargic, and almost acting drugged. This has never happened before with this medicine! I've called the vet, and they instructed me to wash the application site with soap & water and bring him in if his condition worsens. Of course, I've found others online talking about Advantage II making their cats sick and even some reports of death. We are praying our boy will be alright and pull through, but DO NOT USE ADVANTAGE II! The risk to your pet's well-being isn't worth a moderately priced poison made by the Bayer company !
Four cats, who only go to the veterinarian and live only on the second floor of my house, got fleas at the veterinary clinic. Since the pandemic, we can't go in with them. And now because on Sundays they do TNR, we still can't go in. So, feral cats are there as my cats once were. Memories of a flea problem for my indoor domestic cats in the 1980s, when I took in a lost cat came back. Trying to give flea baths at home, where the fleas went around the cat's eyes and jumped off my cat at me and having to flea bomb the apartment. No More! Just put Advantage II on them as directed, keep them from licking each other for 24 hours. Vacuum every corner. Put all the their bedding in the dryer on high at least for 30 minutes and no live fleas so far. I will keep this up for several months to a year. Flea larva will spin a pupa, which is like a cocoon. The pupa is very hard and has a sticky outer coating that helps it hide deep in carpets and fabrics. The pupa stage can last as little as a week or up to a year. Here's where I have to try out my new steam cleaner as steam will kill everything in the corners and the carpets on the floor and the cat trees.
I’ve been trying to get rid of fleas on my cats for 6 months, trying safer versions and comparable meds and this has been the only medicine that has worked so far. They are currently only their 3rd month of using Advantage and I will continue using this in the future. We got rid of the fleas when they got on the Advantage.
I have been using Advantage for many, many years and can attest that it is truly an effective product (it is important not to skip a month, though). I have found that even my squirmiest cats throughout the years have tolerated this medication well since it requires just a quick little squirt to their nape. Of course it does leave a temporary medicinal smell, but offering a treat afterward seems to help ease any distress. And, thanks to this product, no flea problems!
Have been battling fleas using Advantage for 5 months without success. After talking to my vet I was told most fleas are becoming immune to the active ingredients in Advantage, making it much less affective. Switched to a product with the active ingredient as Selamectin and fleas are officially eradicated 2 weeks later. Although selamectin is rx only, it's definitely worth it and is typically cheaper! Don't waste your time and money on Advantage.
I am disappointed with the Advantage flea spot. It does not work well for my Cat. It’s been on since Oct. 15th, He still scratches little fleas up and out. I also have the flea light traps around. Is there some better than Advantage.
After applying this flee treatment there has not been any relief for my cats. The flees still there after a week since the application. I only gave it a one star review just because there was not a big zero as a review!! I spent 200 plus for the flee treatment and the deworming pills which I have not been able to give to them since we still have the flee problem. Definitely would not buy it again.
My new baby came from Human Society with fleas. They treated him but it did not go away. I was giving him other bought from Chewy, did not work. My 5 yrs old F got the fleas from the kitty but not many. It looked the advantage worked. but not 100 %.
The Advantage works great on them. Was getting a different kind and always had to chase them down to apply it, but with the Advantage they don't run and hide so it must not irritate their skin. I think the other did.
