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 alleviate symptoms caused by 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.

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 pet 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 dog is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Do not dispense dose applicator tubes without complete safety and administration information. Avoid oral ingestion. Cats may experience hypersalivation, tremors, vomiting and decreased appetite if Advantage Multi for Cats is inadvertently administered orally or through grooming/licking of the application site. The safety of Advantage Multi for Cats has not been established in breeding, pregnant, or lactating cats. 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.

    Does its job

    By on

    A rating isn't very meaningful for this item, because if your vet prescribes it, you buy it. Thankfully, this item also does its job well.

    This is the first time I ordered this product online with Chewy. It was very cost effective to make the change and I am glad I did. My Shelley just got a treatment and she and I will be happier when it takes effect. Thanks Chewy :-)

    This stuff works

    By on

    I have 4 cats who are indoor cats but they had fleas..most likely brought inside from our feet after mowing the lawn..purchased another flea product which did its job but only killed adult fleas, which it was designed to do. After 2 weeks they were itching again, so I searched for something else and this product had great reviews, rightly so.My cats are so relaxed now, no itching and its been almost a month..so happy to have found this!

    Perfect flea protection

    By on

    Since I’m a crazy cat lady and have 3 rescues and now 2 orphans I’m bottle feeding and will probably keep the last thing I need is fleas. This product has always come thru for me and the kitteos. No fleas here so I’m happy and so are they.
