Description

Your furry friend must have a current heartworm test result on file with your veterinarian in order to be prescribed heartworm medication. Please visit your veterinarian to have this test performed annually to protect your four-legged friend. Advantage Multi for Cats is a broad-spectrum topical solution prescribed by veterinarians to provide pet parents with a convenient monthly application to help protect their cat or ferret from pesky parasites. This easy-to-use solution works to kill adult fleas, treat and control ear mites, roundworm and hookworms—it may also help to prevent heartworm disease in some cats and ferrets.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.

    Keeps our cat happy

    By BCSTX on Apr 1, 2021

    We adopted a little girl who came infested with tapeworms. We got her treated and started her on this. So far we are all much happier. I did deduct one star as one of my cats do not like the smell. It isn’t as strong as some others but it is not pleasant. The smell fades during the day but he’s unhappy for a full 24 hours.

    By Jhope on Apr 19, 2021

    The medicine was easy to open and apply. Product worked as the Vet recommended but I had to keep a close eye on the cat for any reactions.

    Would Not Buy Again

    By Grey on Jan 9, 2021

    I switched to this from Revolution because it's a little cheaper. I will be switching back. It takes 2 days for this to finally soak into my cat's coat. The Revolution only takes a few hours. It's messy and I feel like it's not worth its price. I can't tell you about its actual effectiveness against fleas because my cat is indoor only.

    Used for years now

    By Petlover on Dec 27, 2020

    I like this formula as it covers everything and I don't have to buy a med for fleas/ticks, and another for heartworms ... or wonder about ear mites and worms.

    Once a month

    By Jazzee on Sep 19, 2020

    This is our first cat in twenty years. She has been a delightful addition to our family. When giving this application, she isn’t so sweet, but it is a quick way to protect her against infection from fleas and other pests
