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 Dogs is a broad-spectrum topical solution prescribed by veterinarians to provide a convenient monthly application to help alleviate canine companions from symptoms caused by pesky parasites. This easy-to-use topical solution helps to treat circulating microfilariae in heartworm-positive canines, fights against adult fleas, treats and controls flea infestations, and sarcoptic mange, along with common intestinal parasites including roundworms, hookworms and whipworms—this medication may also prevent heartworm disease in some dogs.

Uses

Advantage Multi for Dogs is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria Immitis and the treatment of Dirofilaria Immitis circulating microfilariae in heartworm-positive dogs. Advantage Multi for Dogs kills adult fleas and is indicated for the treatment of flea infestations (Ctenocephalides felis). Advantage Multi for Dogs is indicated for the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange caused by Sarcoptes Scabiei Varcanis.

*Dogs over 110 lbs. should be treated with the appropriate combination of Advantage Multi for Dogs 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. The dog should be standing for application. Part the hair on the back of the dog between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. For dogs weighing 20 lbs. or less, place the tip of the tube on the skin and apply the entire contents directly on the exposed skin at one spot between the shoulder blades. For dogs weighing more than 20 lbs., place the tip of the tube on the skin and apply the entire contents directly on the exposed skin at 3 or 4 spots on the top of the backline from the base of the neck to the upper back in an area inaccessible to licking. Do not apply an amount of solution at any one location that could run off the side of the dog.

Do not let this product get in your dog's mouth or eyes. Do not allow the dog to lick any of the application sites for 30 minutes. In households with multiple pets, keep each treated dog separated from other treated dogs and other pets for 30 minutes after application to prevent licking the application sites.

Stiff hair, a damp appearance of the hair, pink skin, or a slight powdery residue may be observed at the application site on some animals. This is temporary and does not affect the safety and effectiveness of the product. Shampooing 90 minutes after treatment does not reduce the effectiveness of Advantage Multi for Dogs in the prevention of heartworm disease. Shampooing or water immersion 4 days after treatment will not reduce the effectiveness of Advantage Multi for Dogs in the treatment of flea infestations. However, shampooing as often as once weekly may reduce the effectiveness of the product against fleas.

Heartworm Prevention: For prevention of heartworm disease, Advantage Multi for Dogs should be administered at one-month intervals. Advantage Multi for Dogs may be administered year-round 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 for Dogs immediately and resume the monthly dosing schedule. When replacing another heartworm preventative product in a heartworm prevention program, the first treatment with Advantage Multi for Dogs should be given within one month of the last dose of the former medication.

Treatment of Circulating Microfilariae: For the treatment of circulating D. immitis microfilariae in heartworm-positive dogs, Advantage Multi for Dogs should be administered at one-month intervals. Treatment with an approved adulticide therapy is recommended because Advantage Multi for Dogs is not effective for the treatment of adult D. immitis.

Flea Treatment: For the treatment of flea infestations, Advantage Multi for Dogs should be administered at one-month intervals. If the dog is already infested with fleas when the first dose of Advantage Multi for Dogs is administered, adult fleas on the dog will be killed. However, reinfestation from the emergence of pre-existing pupae in the environment may continue to occur for six weeks or longer after treatment is initiated. Dogs 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 dog.

Treatment and Control of Intestinal Nematode Infections: For the treatment and control of intestinal hookworm infections caused by Ancytostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala (adults, immature adults and fourth stage larvae) and roundworm infections caused by Toxocara canis (adults and fourth stage larvae), and Toxascaris leonina (adults), and whipworm infections caused by Trichuris vulpis (adults) Advantage Multi for Dogs should be administered once as a single topical dose.

Treatment and Control of Sarcoptic Mange: For the treatment and control of sarcoptic mange caused by Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis, Advantage Multi for Dogs should be administered as a single topical dose. A second monthly dose may be administered if necessary.
