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.

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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Works like a charm!

    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

  • The Best Flea Medicine

    By on

    I have two cats, one allergic to fleabites. Poor guy was loosing his hair, and I had already tried 3 months worth of Frontline with no success. Later in the day after applying, I already saw a HUGE difference between this and the last medication I tried. This is pricier, but definitely worth it. I wish I knew about this first, but I am very happy I found something that works.

  • Got Rid of Fleas Immediately

    By on

    I try to write a review on everything I purchase. Our neighbors indoor/outdoor cat gave our indoor/outdoor cat fleas and he spread them to our indoor girls. I thought I was going to go crazy! My neighbor now wants to get some for her cat. We weren't infested, but we were pre-infestation. I've used other flea products before and they either didn't work or didn't work for long. The fleas get bad here in the summer, so this product was a life saver.

  • Worked at first, but didn't last long

    By on

    This seemed to make a difference at first, for a cat that had quite a lot of fleas... but over time it stopped working, even when applied the same way each month. The fleas never fully went away, and continued to bother the cat. This is an indoor cat with no other pets and the cause of the fleas was never identified in the first place, but there certainly wasn't any ongoing exposure so if the treatment really did what it claims, they should have been eliminated and never returned. Four months later and still battling this issue...

  • Great product that works!!

    By on

    I previously used a different flea medication that didn't work so my poor cats were stuck with fleas for a whole month because I couldn't apply new meds. I decided to buy Advantage II praying it would work. I found that Chewy has the cheapest pricing around! Most pet stores charge almost double! I thought it may be too good to be true. Nope! Super fast shipping and the meds have worked because i haven't found a single flea!! Going to keep giving then these flea meds since eggs that fell off of then can still hatch and restart the infestation! They didn't even realize the meds were on them and didn't try to reach it! (They tried to reach the other brand because it was sooo greasy).

  • Quickly got a flea situation under control

    By on

    Thanks to a neighbor's roaming outdoor kittens, I ended up with a minor flea problem in my house which I began to control with a carpet spray. All of this occurred just prior to adopting a new cat and he apparently ended up picking up a few of the remaining fleas. With Chewy's fast shipping, the Advantage II arrived in a couple days and it looks like the problem has been solved with only one treatment (will continue for a couple more months to be sure). The instructions recommend applying the product directly to the cat's skin but my new cat is an adult Maine coon with very soft, fine hair so it's almost impossible to fully expose the skin but it still worked and he is now flea free!

  • Relief for my kitty

    By on

    For some reason this season my cat had a bad case of fleas like never before. I went to a local pet store to get flea treatment and did not want to pay their price and only had the 6 pack available. I did a search right in the store and found Chewy.com. I saw where they had a 2 pack for a price I could afford and placed an order right away. It was seamless to do. I was thinking it would take days to before I got the order. Much to my surprise, a box from Chewy was delivered the very next day! I put the flea treatment right on my cat and could see she was relieved. Thank you Chewy. I have mentioned your website to others too.
