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

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.

    Totally satisfied and it works.

    By Robb on Sep 14, 2021

    Ferris was relieved overnight. As I was looking through his coat the next day not one flea. Additionally over the next couple of days he was scratching, but I believe these were the last of the fleas. The fleas are killed if he is bit. 5 days later and he is not stressing from fleas. I will have to keep supplies stocked so we don't have this occur again. The convenience was key. I had been to several pet store websites. The stores that sell ferrets didn't have any treatments in stock or even on their stock lists. One store advertised it on their website as "in stock". Since it was 45 mins away I called ahead to ensure the treatment was there. They did not have it stocked or in stock. I should Ferris was relieved overnight.

    Didn't work

    By Fleas on Aug 23, 2021

    Would give zero stars if possible.. After following the instructions, and having to reapply 14 days after 1st dose, still dealing with fleas. My ferret stays indoors 24/7. We don't have carpet, vacuum every day, and change fleece daily to try and make sure that I was doing everything I could to help my ferret get relief from fleas, it hasn't helped one bit. Won't be repurchasing.

    No fleas on Halloween Rainbow the Ferret

    By Rachel on Apr 2, 2021

    Last year, this stuff took some time to work because I had a bad infestation. I usually only treat the cat that goes outside every month, but my mom’s cat visited from out of state and came with fleas that were resistant to the flea meds. We didn’t have to switch this medication for the ferret. It took two months but the fleas were gone. I also recommend a flea comb and regular brushing. The pets like it. Last month, I found a flea on my indoor cat because I used the comb. If I hadn’t, I probably would not have noticed fleas on the animals until they spread to the ferret, or hopped on my child. You probably are aware that fleas are easy to spot on a white ferret, especially with a comb. No Last year, this stuff took some time to work because I had a bad infestation.

    Used twice already but it is not working

    By LauraSD on Oct 3, 2020

    I am sorry to say it didn't work for me so far which is very frustrating, plus the product is not very cheap either... Already applied the product twice (with a 2 weeks break between applications) and I still keep finding 3 - 4 fleas on my ferret using a flea comb. The house is being vacuumed and cleaned 2 times a week, including the ferret room where he runs fee and plays during the day, bedding and plush toys are being washed in hot water every 2 - 3 days and dried on "high" cycle, and the cage where he sleeps at night is cleaned from top to bottom every single morning. He doesn't go outside and I have no other pets. Had ferrets since 2015 but something like this never happened.

    Treated backyard fox squirrel

    By Heather on Oct 7, 2020

    I’ve been hand feeding a mama fox squirrel in my backyard ever since we went into quarantine. She had fleas all over her and had scratched her skin raw in some places. I tried to hide capstar tablets in her food or water but that only killed adult fleas, not larvae or eggs. I parted her fur and gave her one dose of advantage and the next day she was flea free. It’s been 29 days since she was treated and she’s still flea-free.
