Instructions

How to open:

  • Be sure tube is at bottom of pouch.
  • Using scissors, cut the pouch across the top and remove tube.

How to apply:

  • Remove one applicator tube from the package.
  • Hold applicator tube in an upright position facing away from you and your pet’s face and eyes. Pull cap off tube.
  • Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
  • Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
  • Part the hair on the neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin. Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes, or allow your cat to ingest this product. The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occur for a short time if the cat licks the product immediately after treatment. Treatment at the base of the skull will minimize the opportunity for the cat to lick the product. Do not allow the product to run off.
  • Discard empty tube.
  • Under normal conditions this product is effective for a month. However, in cases of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than 4 weeks. Do not retreat more often than once every 14 days for kittens or once every 7 days for small and large cats. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly retreatment schedule.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Advantage Topical Solution and Advantage II?

We have added an insect growth regulator, pyriproxyfen, to Advantage.

What is an insect growth regulator (IGR)?

An IGR, such as pyriproxyfen, inhibits the development of flea eggs. It also offers additional larvicidal properties when compared with imidacloprid alone.

How does pyriproxyfen work?

Pyriproxyfen mimics the juvenile growth hormone of fleas. This hormone prevents immature flea stages from molting into the next stage of the life cycle and keeps them from developing into adult fleas.

Why is it important to use a product with an IGR?

With an IGR as part of your flea control, the flea life cycle is disrupted at multiple stages through different active ingredients and modes of action. This is often referred to as integrated flea control (IFC). The addition of an IGR to Advantage II provides ovicidal, as well as additional larvicidal properties to target flea infestations and kill all flea life stages.

Is Advantage II waterproof?

Yes, there is no need to reapply the product after weekly swimming or a bath. For best results, use a non-detergent shampoo.

    I live in Florida, in an apartment complex, where you can't avoid fleas. The heat and humidity during yhe holidays escalated my flea issues in only a few weeks time, to the point one of my cats was slowly scratching off his fur. I bought this based on reviews and because of their weight. Arrived in 2 days, dropped off at my office, so shipping was great. Used it on all three cats. First two days, fleas were dying, or jumping off and dying. First week was great. Third week I'm starting to see fleas again; on me, as well.. Because I have three cats, I vacuum and do laundry often. Plus, it's been 55 or below the last few weeks.

  • The best thing I have tried!

    By on

    I have literally tried everything for my cat... the collars, the sprays, the inexpensive squeeze on flea control treatments and nothing worked... I finally decided to go ahead and spend the money on the Advantage II Flea Treatment and wish I would have done it sooner. Literally noticed a HUGE difference within 2 days. My cats skin no longer has little sores from him scratching or seems uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend :)

  • Works well, good value

    By on

    My family has trusted Advantage for fleas since I was a kid, for both dogs and cats. I've never had a pet have a bad reaction to the ingredients (1 dog, 5 cats), and it controls fleas well. I usually combine this treatments with the Micodex spray, to spray pet bedding, carpets, etc. Having a pet with a flea allergy is difficult, but this product has always been great. Just be sure you buy the one that fits the weight of your pet.

  • Disappointed

    By on

    Gave 7 of my cats all individual doses & was shocked to find fleas alive in them a few days later. I'm repeating the dose in 2 weeks( for an extremely bad infestation), so I'll see, otherwise I'm going to cancel my auto delivery and try something else.I washed all their bedding after I applied the flea treatment.

  • Advantage II for large cats worked!

    By on

    I tried Frontline for Cats after noticing that my 11 year old "indoor only" cat, Theo, had fleas. After two treatments (and 12 weeks later) he was still not "flea free." (Note, I also worked diligently on eliminating fleas from the house by vacuuming/mopping almost every day and with the help of a professional exterminator). After two months, they seemed to be gone from my house but not entirely from Theo. So for the next monthly treatment I switched to Advantage II for large cats (21 lbs is rather large). I'm not sure if the Frontline would have also worked upon the third treatment, but a day or two after applying Advantage II, the fleas were entirely gone and have not come back.

  • Doesn’t last a month

    The methodology of this treatment seems not as effective as other treatments (revolution). Meaning this stuff doesn’t get into their skin, it’s like hair oriented, so depending on your cats and how they groom, they can in like 3 weeks or so, end up full of flea irritants quicker than your 1 month dose allots. I may be wrong about the specifics above, but all i know is this treatment doesn’t work the full month, and in the last week it simply makes your cat’s lives uncomfortable. That said, it’s quite available almost everywhere. I find it at brick & mortar places and online and the price here at Chewy is super reasonable compared to other treatments.

  • Disappointed in Product

    By on

    I was disappointed with the Bayer Advantage II Flea Treatment for Large Cats, 9+ lbs. He was still itching and I was getting bit by fleas jumping off of him. I was very satisfied with the speed of delivery through standard mail. I will shop chewy.com again and try a different brand of flea control.

  • Love!! This stuff!!

    By on

    I have been finding dead flees on things which is awesome! Our cat still gets them but flees are a big problem where we live. Thankfully we never have a huge issue thanks to this stuff they keep them at Bay. It helps to give them a bath with Dawn dish soap unscented then put this on it seriously works way better than Frontline!! I will buy again and again

  • Cheaper and quick

    By on

    Love to save money any way I can with 3 cats and a dog- Chewy helped do that. Ended up getting this about $25 less than in stores with a coupon and auto ship discount. Like this brand for flea treatments especially with cats that run out the door from time to time. Who has time for store shopping anymore? Let Chewy do the work for ya

    I have a 10 year old cat who stays indoors. I’ve had him since he was a kitten, he’s been outside a total of about 20 minuets his whole life. He has never had fleas and I have never given him a preventative, up until about 5 months ago. I noticed a lot of what looked like black dandruff, but found out that it was really flea poop. He was infested and so was my house. I gave him a flea bath with some stuff that said it was a preventative too and tried treating my house. Didn’t work. Took him to the vet and they gave him some capstar and a preventative treatment that you can only purchase at the vet, he still had fleas and so did my house.

Fleas on him died, got my house treated professionally. Knock on wood, but no fleas on him or in my house for about 4 months now! I just got a puppy, had some advantage ready to put on her as soon as she got to our house. I’m very pleased and will keep using this product. … more
