  • Why Worry About Fleas?

    Aside from causing irritation, fleas can lead to Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) and even anaemia in serious cases. Infected fleas can also transmit tapeworm if swallowed during grooming.

    Fleas bite humans too. Home infestations can take months to clear because only 5% of fleas live on your pet. The other 95% are in your home environment as eggs, larvae and pupae.

    One application of Advantage remains effective for up to 4 weeks in pets and up to one week in rabbits.

How to Apply Advantage

For dogs < 25kg: Part the coat between the shoulder blades until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin.
For dogs > 25kg: The entire contents of the Advantage® tube should be applied evenly to three to four spots on the top of the back from the shoulder to the base of the tail.

FAQs

How often should I use Advantage?

It is recommended that you apply Advantage to your dog once a month all year round to achieve protection from fleas.

Can I use Advantage to treat louse infestations?

Yes, Advantage for dogs can be used to treat biting lice in addition to fleas. You should book a check-up with your vet 30 days after treatment, as some dogs may need a second treatment to clear up the louse infestation fully.

How long do I need to wait after bathing my dog before I apply Advantage flea treatment?

If you’ve recently bathed your dog, it’s recommended you wait at least two days before treating them with Advantage flea drops.

Can I allow my pet to swim when using Advantage?

Yes. The active ingredient in Advantage sits in the waterproof layer of your dog’s skin and the product remains effective if your dog becomes wet on occasion (for example after exposure to heavy rain or swimming). However, re-treatment may be necessary on some occasions, for example if your dog is a frequent swimmer; in these cases do not treat more frequently than once weekly.

Can Advantage be used to treat Flea Allergy Dermatitis in my dog?

Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) is an allergic reaction some dogs suffer with when they come into contact with flea saliva as a result of flea bites. It causes dogs to scratch and bite their skin to relieve the extreme irritation. This can lead to hair loss, skin ‘hot spots’ or nasty infections.

Advantage spot-on flea treatment can be used as part of a treatment strategy for Flea Allergy Dermatitis, where this has previously been diagnosed by a veterinary surgeon. The active ingredient in Advantage is able to kill fleas through contact, meaning they don’t have to bite your dog in order to be killed.1 This means dogs are less exposed to the saliva they’re allergic to, helping to reduce FAD outbreaks.

Remove one pipette from the package. Hold pipette in an upright position, twist and pull off cap. Use reversed cap to twist and remove seal from pipette. The dog should be standing for easy application. The entire contents of the pipette(s) should be applied evenly to three or four spots all located at different application sites along the dog’s backline from the shoulder to the base of the tail. At each spot part the coat until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and gently squeeze to expel a portion of the contents directly onto the skin.

The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occa­sionally occur if the dog licks the application site immediately after treatment and should disappear within some minutes. Apply only to undamaged skin. Do not allow recently treated animals to groom each other.

Do not treat again within 4 weeks.

Use during pregnancy or lactation

Evidence so far suggests that no adverse effects are expected in pregnant or lactating bitches.

Warnings

Care should be taken to avoid the contents of the pipette coming into contact with the eyes or mouth of the animal.

Do not allow recently treated animals to groom each other.

Wash hands thoroughly after use.

Wash off any skin contamination with soap and water.

People with known skin sensitivity may be particularly sensitive to this product.

Avoid contact of the product with the eyes or mouth.

If the product gets into eyes accidentally, the eyes should be thoroughly flushed with water. If skin or eye irritation persists, or the product is accidentally swallowed, obtain medical attention.

Do not eat, drink or smoke during application.

Adverse Reactions

The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occa­sionally occur if the dog licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disap­pears within some minutes without treatment.

In very rare occasions skin reactions such as hair loss, redness, itching and skin lesions may occur. Agitation and disorientation has also been reported. Excessive salivation and nervous signs such as incoordination, tremors and depression have been reported exceptionally in dogs.

I have only ever used this and my dog has never had a flea in doing so i won't use nothing else but this

Excellent for fleas

Our dog caught fleas last year despite using Frontline and I could not get rid of them for about 2 months despite spraying the whole house etc. It was only when I switched to Advantage that we got rid of the damn things. Apparently fleas are now immune to Fipronil the active ingredient in Frontline. However Frontline still seems to work for ticks, which Advantage doesn't do so I now use both.

Having used Frontline on my cats and still finding fleas on them, I changed to Advantage, with no issues at all. So it made sense to use this when I got a dog. Used once a month, I have never seen a flea on him so will continue to use.
