Advantage II medium dog
What is Advantage® II for Dogs?
A monthly topical flea treatment that works through contact so fleas don’t have to bite to die.
•Controls fleas (including all life stages) and lice and helps to protect against Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD)
•Remains effective after bathing and swimming*
•Available in four different sizes for puppies and dogs
•Convenient, easy-to-apply monthly flea preventative.
• Kills 98% - 100% of fleas on a pet within 12 hours of the first application and kills reinfesting fleas within 8 hours.
• Bathing should be limited to once per treatment period with non-medicated dog shampoo.
How does it work?
Advantage® II is not absorbed internally when applied to the skin. It spreads in a thin layer and remains locked in the oil of the pet’s skin. Contact by the parasite with the treated hair coat and skin results in paralysis and death of fleas and lice.
Advantage® II not only kills adult fleas through contact, the product also contains the insect growth regulator pyriproxyfen which is distributed into the home on fur and skin shed by the dog and prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into the next stage of the flea life cycle, effectively killing them, too!
