  • 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.

  • Step 4 for cats
    Part the hair on the pet’s neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty its contents directly onto the skin.

FAQs

How often should I use Advantage?

It is recommended that you apply Advantage to your cat or dog once a month , or to your rabbit once a week 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 pets may need a second treatment to clear up the louse infestation fully.

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

If you’ve recently bathed your pet, 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 pet’s skin and the product remains effective if your pet 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?

Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD) is an allergic reaction some pets suffer with when they come into contact with flea saliva as a result of flea bites. It causes cats and 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 pet in order to be killed.1 This means pets are less exposed to the saliva they’re allergic to, helping to reduce FAD outbreaks.

My cat is strictly an indoor cat. Do I still need to use Advantage?

Parasites can get into your home without being invited, which means indoor cats aren’t immune from catching fleas.

Fleas can enter your home through many means, including on your clothing, on other pets and on rodents which may have also broken into your home. These fleas can then easily be passed to indoor cats causing an infestation in your home.

On behalf of our human mommy we thank you for the excellent delivery, price and product. Mommy used this on us in the past - and lo behold we had no little critters bothering us!

Works well and it's delivered to my door.

I used to use Frontline but found it less expensive now, so I changed to Advantage and I'm really pleased. It works really fast. Petshop's bottomless bowl means I don't have to remember that I've run out and I don't have to worry about going to the shops during the current pandemic.

Perfect!

So much cheaper than similar products you can buy from the vets. The spot on pipette makes it so easy to apply to even the quickest of cats.

Good service

It seems to work as cats don’t have flees and getting a regular subscription keeps on top of the situation as well as being better value. Very happy.

Excellent service, customer service responded to my query quickly and efficiently. The product arrived within a couple of days and excellent value, I will be using this company from now on.

Excellent product, excellent price.

Excellent product at a very good price. I have 5 cats and have used this for about 5-6 years. None of my cats object to having this applied. It is the most effective flea treatment I've ever used without prescription. Fast delivery, highly recommended.

A product that can be trusted.

Actually works unlike some other brands. Advantage all the way

Fantastic product

by -

I have used other more well known brands before but they did not work effectively enough. I have been using Advantage 80 for the past few months and I can honestly say I was dubious that it would work but I had to try something, I have 3 female cats and my home was starting to become infested and the cats were also suffering, I couldn't have been more wrong. I think it only took a few days once treated and I stopped seeing any evidence of fleas at all.

very effective treatment

by -

Great value for money , not a flea seen after switching to this product on my Tom cat Boris who socialises with all the alley cats in the neighbourhood

Cannot recommend this company enough .

by -

My monthly flea treatment went missing in the post and after 5 days I emailed to ask about tracking the parcel and received a lovely email from Megan who tracked my order , deemed it lost and sent me out a new order by courier that day

Great product. I foster rescue cats and these are the best price I have found.

Clear at last

by -

This has been a lifesaver. A flea problem we could not get rid of. No matter the amount of hoovering, bleaching, spraying and cat treatments. After using this the effect was immediate. Two treatments in problem gone. Will continue to use this. Well worth the money.

Best place to order from

The product is good and at a good price. The only thing is delivery takes a while and packaging could be better as the box is always a bit beaten
