Advantage II Dosing and Administration
Hold the applicator tube in an upright position facing away from your patient’s face and eyes. Pull the cap off the tube.
Turn the cap around and place the other end of the cap back on the tube. Twist the cap to break the seal, and then remove the cap from the tube.
Part the hair on the cat’s 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 the cat’s eyes or allow the cat to ingest this product. 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.
Advantage® II for Cats can be applied monthly, year-round to keep your patients protected from fleas. A single application of Advantage® II for Cats stops biting fleas for one month.
However, if the cat has a severe infestation, re-treatment within a month may be necessary. Do not re-treat more often than once every 14 days for kittens or once every 7 days for small and large cats; after flea control is attained, your client can return to a monthly re-treatment schedule.
Side effects, although very rare, may include signs of skin irritation such as redness, scratching or other signs of discomfort. Gastrointestinal signs such as hypersalivation, vomiting or diarrhea have also been reported. Individual sensitivities, while rare, may occur after using ANY pesticide product for cats.
