Instructions

How to open:

  • Be sure tube is at bottom of pouch.
  • Using scissors, cut the pouch across the top and remove tube.

How to apply:

  • Remove one applicator tube from the package.
  • Hold applicator tube in an upright position facing away from you and your pet’s face and eyes. Pull cap off tube.
  • Turn the cap around and place other end of cap back on tube.
  • Twist cap to break seal, then remove cap from tube.
  • Part the hair on the neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze the tube to expel the entire contents directly on the skin. Do not get this product in your cat’s eyes, or allow your cat to ingest this product. The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occur for a short time if the cat licks the product immediately after treatment. Treatment at the base of the skull will minimize the opportunity for the cat to lick the product. Do not allow the product to run off.
  • Discard empty tube.
  • Under normal conditions this product is effective for a month. However, in cases of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than 4 weeks. Do not retreat more often than once every 14 days for kittens or once every 7 days for small and large cats. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly retreatment schedule.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Advantage Topical Solution and Advantage II?

We have added an insect growth regulator, pyriproxyfen, to Advantage.

What is an insect growth regulator (IGR)?

An IGR, such as pyriproxyfen, inhibits the development of flea eggs. It also offers additional larvicidal properties when compared with imidacloprid alone.

How does pyriproxyfen work?

Pyriproxyfen mimics the juvenile growth hormone of fleas. This hormone prevents immature flea stages from molting into the next stage of the life cycle and keeps them from developing into adult fleas.

Why is it important to use a product with an IGR?

With an IGR as part of your flea control, the flea life cycle is disrupted at multiple stages through different active ingredients and modes of action. This is often referred to as integrated flea control (IFC). The addition of an IGR to Advantage II provides ovicidal, as well as additional larvicidal properties to target flea infestations and kill all flea life stages.

Is Advantage II waterproof?

Yes, there is no need to reapply the product after weekly swimming or a bath. For best results, use a non-detergent shampoo.

    I try not to let my cats outside, but one (who was rescued after living "on the streets" for six years) dashes to the backyard whenever he can. Fortunately, he doesn't kill anything, he just likes to lay amongst the shrubs. Anyway, I've always used another flea & tick product on him, and I used it again this spring. Last month, I found fleas on him! I don't know if the fleas here have built up a resistance to the other product, but Advantage II is doing the job now.

  • Works when Others Did Not

    By on

    Advantage II gets rid of fleas and keeps them off. Frontline Plus stopped working on our Illinois fleas, so thank goodness for Advantage. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 applications every couple of weeks for bad cases, but it does work. I use the large cat formula even on our smaller cats. It repels ticks too, ive never seen a tick on my cats even during tick season.

  • EEK Fleas!

    Our two kitties suddenly had fleas big time. They do have access to 'country living', so it's not too surprising that they would pick-up some fleas from any stray cats in our area. I had used Advantage in the past with great success and so ordered some from CHEWY and had it pronto. Kitties are once again flea free! Phew!

  • great product

    although this is NOT an instant fix, but by being consistent and applying this every month, it does work. if you already have an infestation this will help to REDUCE but you need to wash everything, bedding and all. carpets, couch everything needs to be addressed. even though your pet may not be an outdoor animal, you yourself can bring them into your home. I know I've been there! a couple of times. get ahead of the flea season before the season. that has always been my trick. and just because it's winter and you don't see fleas, trust me they are still around. you have to be vigilant, persistant, and on top of it always. remember this is a monthly dose, do it monthly!

    Our two cats got a terrible flea infestation after we moved into a new apartment. We purchased medicine from the vet up the street and bathed the cats MULTIPLE times to kill the live fleas, but found that the fleas were NOT gone after TWO months of treatment!... So after searching around online, I found chewy.com where this product was listed. It worked IMMEDIATELY. Just like the product said, we could tell that our cats were feeling better within 12 hours of the application. They were itching less, and in more affectionate moods... Our previous medicine was Frontline, which they approve for kittens that are over 1/2 pound in weight up to full-sized cats.

  • So Far...So Good!

    By on

    Applied this to our 6 cats and, so far, not a flea or itch seen! I like the fact that the fleas do not have to bite to die. 2 of our cats are SEVERELY allergic to the bites, so this has brought them much relief! I will buy it again in another month!

    This was the first time ordering from this company. I ordered Advantage 2 for my cats. I ordered this on a Sunday and received my order my Wednesday. Very pleased and will order again from this company. Thank you for a nice experience.

  • So far, so good!

    I bought this as more of a preventative measure since my cat goes outside more in the spring through fall. So far I have seen no evidence of ticks or fleas! It's easy to apply (once I can catch my cat) and it's a good deal for a six month supply. So far I do not notice any type of side effects after applying. Ordering is always easy and shipping is always fast and it's easier (and cheaper) than going to the vet and/or dealing with getting rid of fleas!

    So I have one cat and my roommate has her own as well, both a little less than a year old. They're indoor cats and have never stepped outside however we got fleas somehow and it has been the worst experience of my life. We have been struggling with these little bugs for a month and a half now. I bought shampoo a comb 2 sprays even a carpet treatment and also this product and STILL have fleas. I even had exterminators come to our apartment!! I didn't even notice a difference after applying this and I even applied another one 2 weeks after rather than a month as I read that if you have an infestation to apply a new one two weeks after and still nothing has worked.

Just bought the Seresto cat flea collar today however and am really hoping that'll work, already saw two fleas practically fall off of my cat and couldn't really jump away from me grabbing them so that's a positive note already! I'm just praying that the collar works I hate these things!! Anyway posted a little pic of my cutie so you can all gush (hehe) AND pray that she finally gets some relief!! … more
