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.

Uses

Advantage Multi for Cats is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria Immitis in cats and ferrets 2 pounds or over. Advantage Multi for Cats kills adult fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and is indicated for the treatment of flea infestations.

Possible Side Effects

Contact your veterinarian if your cat or ferret experiences pruritus/scratching, scabbing, redness, wounds and inflammation at the treatment site; lethargy; and chemical odor.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your pet is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Do not dispense dose applicator tubes without complete safety and administration information. Avoid oral ingestion. The safety of Advantage Multi for Cats has not been established in breeding, pregnant, or lactating cats or ferrets. The effectiveness of Advantage Multi for Cats against heartworm infections (D. immitis) after bathing has not been evaluated in cats. Use of this product in geriatric pets with subclinical conditions has not been adequately studied. Several otherwise healthy, thin geriatric cats experienced prolonged lethargy and sleepiness after using this drug.

  • Remove one dose applicator tube from the package.

As specified in the following table, administer the entire contents of the Advantage Multi for Cats tube that correctly corresponds with the body weight of the cat.

Cat (lbs.) Advantage Multi for Cats Volume (mL) Imidacloprid (mg) Moxidectin (mg)
2-5 Advantage Multi 5 0.23 23 2.3
5.1-9 Advantage Multi 9 0.4 40 4

*Cats over 18 lbs. should be treated with the appropriate combination of Advantage Multi for Cats tubes.

  1. While holding the tube in an upright position, remove the cap from the tube.
  2. Turn the cap over and push the other end of cap onto the tip of the tube.
  3. Twist the cap to break the seal and then remove cap from the tube.
  4. Part the hair on the back of the cat's neck at the base of the head, until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and apply the entire contents directly on the exposed skin. Lift tube away from skin before releasing pressure on tube.

Do not get this product in the cat's mouth or eyes or allow the cat to lick the application site for 30 minutes. Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity tor ingestion by grooming. In households with multiple pets, keep animals separated to prevent licking of the application site. Stiff, matted hair or a damp, oily appearance of the hair may be observed at the application site on some cats. This is temporary and does not affect the safety and effectiveness of the product.

Heartworm Prevention: For prevention of heartworm disease, Advantage Multi for Cats should be administered at one­month intervals. Advantage Multi for Cats may be administered year-around or at a minimum should start one month before the first expected exposure to mosquitoes and should continue at monthly intervals until one month after the last exposure to mosquitoes. If a dose is missed and a 30-day interval between doses is exceeded, administer Advantage Multi tor Cats immediately and resume the monthly dosing schedule. When replacing another heartworm preventative product in a heart­ worm prevention program, the first treatment with Advantage Multi for Cats should be given within one month of the last dose of the former medication. At the discretion of the veterinarian, cats older than 6 months of age may be tested to determine the presence of existing heartworm infection before treatment with Advantage Multi tor Cats.

Flea Treatment: For the treatment of flea infestations, Advantage Multi for Cats should be administered at one-month inter­vals. It the cat is already infested with fleas when the first dose of Advantage Multi for Cats is administered, adult fleas on the cat will be killed. However, re-infestation from the emergence of pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to occur for six weeks or longer after treatment is initiated. Cats treated with imidacloprid, including those with pre-existing flea allergy dermatitis have shown clinical improvement as a direct result of elimination of fleas from the cat.

Ear Mite Treatment: For the treatment of ear mites (Otodectes cynotis), Advantage Multi for Cats should be administered once as a single topical dose. Monthly use of Advantage Multi for Cats will control any subsequent ear mite infestations.

Intestinal Nematode Treatment: For the treatment and control of intestinal hookworm infections caused by Ancylostoma tubaeforme (adults, immature adults and fourth stage larvae) and roundworm infections caused by Toxocara cati (adults and fourth stage larvae), Advantage Multi for Cats should be administered once as a single topical dose.

    This product was recommended by my vet. It is a good product for an outside cat. Wish I could make her an inside kitty but so far not working. This will protect her until she decides to retire and live inside.
