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.

    By on

    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. I even bought a new powerful vacuum So I have one cat and my roommate has her own as well, both a little less than a year old.

I even bought a new powerful vacuum and everything - I cannot believe the fortune I have spent because of these terrible bugs and I cannot believe that this product did not work after reading all of the postive reviews. 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

  • First experience with Advantage WOW!!

    By on

    My indoor only cat Missy suddenly was infested with flees, the only thing I can figures is an outside stray came in door for a few seconds and must have dropped flees or eggs on the door mat and Missy sometimes sleeps on it when I'm at work. I took a chance on this expensive brand because it was highly recommend by former users. Before using her head felt like it was covered in dirt, which was all flee eggs. After applying first dose she really scratched for a couple of hours next morning her head was clean and no more scratching. I was shocked at how quickly it worked. I can truthfully say you get what you pay for and it was well worth the cost.

  • Advantage II Flea Treatment for Large Cats

    By on

    I just treated my "Biggies" and my "Teenies", too with Advantage II. As always, it works great. I use it regularly and I have found it to take care of any problem and I now use it as a preventive to make sure no new fleas have hatched out. That keeps my house safe as well as my cats. It's a good product and I would recommend it to others.

  • Excellent flea product

    By on

    I have always used Advantage on all my pets because it does work and I think more safe to use than others. I have needed to use every 3 weeks instead of 4 when the fleas are worse in my state.I love Chewy because their customer service is super great and their shipping super fast.

  • Working, no fleas!

    By on

    All other spot on treatments had stopped working in previous years. They say the fleas are immune? Tried this, so far it is working! It may be the same ingredients as before, but in heavier doses for larger cats? My big fat cats are happy, I'm happy. I am applying every 4 to 5 weeks.

  • Best flea treatment I've found

    By on

    I tried a cheaper brand (I have several rescue cats). But fleas came back and a few cats started losing fur. Applied Advantage II on all of them on 4/1. Today is 4/15 and fleas are gone and fur is growing back. Everybody is happy.

    I was going to get frontline.. but read reviews on chewy... and people love it. I now know why! This stuff works so quickly... puts frontline to shame. Thank you chewy community, your reviews help so much when choosing a product!

  • BYE BYE FLEAS

    By on

    I almost never write reviews but this product deserves one. My indoor cat got a nasty case of fleas. I decided to give advantage II a try. It arrived the next day so I parted the cat's fur as instructed and applied the product. The day after I applied the advantage II, I combed out just a few live fleas and a lot of dead ones. Day two after I applied it, I combed and combed but the only "live" flea I could find was just barely alive. My cat is back to enjoying log naps without being startled awake by flea bites.
