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.

Possible Side Effects

Contact your veterinarian if your dog experiences localized pruritus, hematochezia, diarrhea, vomiting, lethargy, inappetence or pyoderma.

FAQ

Is Advantage Multi for Dogs waterproof?

Advantage Multi for Dogs prevents heartworm disease in dogs after a swim or bath, 60 and 90 minutes respectively after application.

How do I apply Advantage Multi for Dogs?

Do not apply to irritated skin.

  • Remove one dose applicator tube from the package.
  • While holding the tube in an upright position, remove the cap from the tube.
  • Turn the cap over and push the other end of the cap onto the tip of the tube.
  • Twist the cap to break the seal and then remove cap from the tube.
  • 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.

How old does my dog have to be to use Advantage Multi for Dogs?

Advantage Multi for Dogs is for use on puppies at least 7 weeks old and weighing at least 3 pounds.

Does Advantage Multi for Dogs expire?

Advantage Multi for Dogs does have an expiration date that can be found on the bottom edge of the package. Advantage Multi for Dogs should not be used past its expiration date.

When can I bathe my dog after using Advantage Multi for Dogs?

We recommend bathing before applying product. The product can be applied once the pet is towel dried. 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 does 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. Please use a pet shampoo that is soap-free.

Can my dog go swimming after using Advantage Multi for Dogs?

Yes. A study showed that when dogs went swimming 60 minutes after application, Advantage Multi for Dogs still effectively prevented heartworm disease. A study also showed that swimming 4 days after treatment did not reduce the effectiveness of Advantage Multi for Dogs in the treatment of flea infestations.

When should I put Advantage Multi on my dog?

You should apply Advantage Multi for Dogs monthly (every 30 days), all year-round.

How does Advantage Multi for Dogs work to kill fleas?

Advantage Multi for Dogs is applied to the pet's skin. The active ingredient spreads over your dog's body to kill fleas through contact so they don't have to bite your dog to die.

What if I miss an Advantage Multi for Dogs heartworm treatment?

Life happens. If you forget or miss a dose, simply treat your dog immediately. Advantage Multi for Dogs is heartworm prevention that forgives if you forget. It kills immature heartworms that may already be in your dog and continues to prevent future infection by killing newly acquired baby worms throughout the month. After a single dose, if you forget and go more than 30 days in between treatments, just treat immediately and resume your monthly schedule.

Does Advantage Multi for Dogs kill ticks?

No. Advantage Multi for Dogs provides broad-spectrum protection against heartworms, fleas, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and the skin parasite sarcoptic mange. If you are concerned about ticks, Bayer has effective products that treat and prevent tick infestations.

How often can I use Advantage Multi for Dogs?

Use monthly, year-round, to prevent heartworm disease; kill adult fleas; treat flea infestations; treat and control hookworms, roundworms and whipworms; and treat and control sarcoptic mange.

    Really works

    By on

    started our Chihuahuas on advantage multi after we experienced a lab on it after she contracted heart worms. One year after starting advantage multi she was Heartworm free. Love that the chihuahuas don’t have to fight with giving a tablet. They accept the application to the neck so much easier.

    GREAT, but NOT for TICK CONTROL

    By on

    Great product for all the critters that it will work for, BUT it isn't made for TICKS! * I thought I'd read through the discription and looked over all the nasty bugs, BUT I FAILED to NOTICE that this product DOES NOT COVER TICKS. * Now my FurrKid has to go through treatment because of a DeerTick bite, and it's on me because the box makes no claims to TICK CONTROL.

    Garbage garbage

    By on

    Tried on my dog. Works like Garbage. Treated my dog and did absolutely nothing. For the fleas. Or ticks. So please stop selling stuff that does not help for any conditions that are stated. Especially for heart worm . My dog never had heart worms. Before I switched to the stuff you are selling at a very high price. Going back to the sentinel that works for every condition heart worm flea and ticks. At a very reasonable price.

    Protection with ease

    By on

    I have used this Advantage multi on my dogs for 20+ years and I've found it to be an effective protection against heart worms and fleas when used as prescribed. And the once a month, one application is very easy to do. While somewhat expensive the peace of mind it offers is worth it. And Chewy offers the best savings around.

    Advantage multi 3-9 lb. dog

    By on

    This was highly recommended by my vet because my 7 lb. chi would spit out cut up heart worm pills. This med has all the preventive medicines that the other pill form had. I like it because you just apply to her skin directly and no fitting to swallow any pill.

    Switched but now back

    By on

    Switched to another product to save money. Heart worm covered but was twice as expensive to cover fleas because other product did not do that. Had used this product for 7 years. Never a flea or parasites. Am now back to stay after 1 month on other brand.

    Great med!

    By on

    I have used this before. I have a pet with no teeth so anything she chews is difficult. The topical works well.
