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.

    I don't see a change...

    By on

    I recently used this to try to treat my ferret. I don't think it even did anything. My Ferret still has a bit of an itch and acts completely the same. I am going to try to give it a chance but it has been a while already.

    Will definitely rebuy

    I love this treatment, it's highly effective and my babies are now super happy. I applied it on wednesday and separated my ferrets for 24 hours. When I checked on them at the 24 hour mark I didn't see any fleas on them, I only saw a bunch of dead ones on their bedding. You have to get below the fur, directly on the skin for the best results and I recommend separating them for 24 hours so the treatment is uninterrupted and they don't wash it off eachother. Make sure to apply between their shoulder blades.

    My baby girl is all too happy!

    By on

    This product worked so well for my baby girl. We had a terrible flea infestation this year and they attracted to her all too well. This product works amazing! You have to treat your home properly and apply this as needed (but no more than once every two weeks). This is my third box. Fleas have disappeared on her while this product works its magic, and she's very happy!

    Advantage ll for ferrets

    By on

    My husband and I were looking for flea medicine for our ferrets and could only find it on Chewy.com. After I placed my order I called them regarding a question about the timeline of delivery. The gentleman that I spoke with was very nice and helpful. We received our order within a couple days and now our little furry kids are very happy! It was more expensive then we were hoping for especially for a package of 2. Over all the product works great and the people are very nice when you call.

    FAST EFFECTIVE FLEA TREATMENT!

    By on

    I adopted a 2 year old ferret, skin and bones, covered in fleas. I was so grateful that I could buy ferret flea meds OTC instead of waiting to get her into the vet office. I have used advantage products in the past for dogs and cats no complaints and this is just as effective for our pocket pets! great product

    Fleas are gone

    By on

    My ferret has had several fleas. I've given her flea baths, and they would all come off but she would have them again by a day or so later. This product totally wiped them out. I used this product on her about 2 or 3 weeks ago and she has yet to have a flea on her. This works amazing!
