What is Advantage II?

Advantage II is a monthly flea preventative for dogs and cats that offers comprehensive flea protection by killing adult fleas, larvae, and eggs. Plus, it kills fleas through contact, which means fleas don't have to bite your pet to die. Advantage II also treats, prevents, and controls lice on dogs. Advantage II does not kill ticks, so we recommend using the Preventic Tick Collar along with Advantage II (dogs only).

For:

Dogs (3 lbs or over and 7 weeks of age or older), Cats (2 lbs or over and 8 weeks of age or older)

Benefits:
  • Convenient, once-a-month application
  • Kills through contact - fleas dont have to bite to die
  • Kills fleas within 12 hours of application
  • Kills all flea life stages including flea eggs and larvae to prevent infestation
  • Treats, prevents, and controls lice infestations (dogs only)
  • Safe and easy to apply
  • Waterproof - remains effective even if pet gets wet (use of a soap-free shampoo is recommended)
How it Works:

The first active ingredient is imidacloprid, which acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death. Within 12 hours of application, 98-100 percent of fleas are dead. The second active ingredient, pyriproxyfen, is an insect growth regulator. Once a female flea lays her eggs, pyriproxyfen works to prevent the eggs from hatching, ending the flea life cycle. Also, the active ingredient in Advantage II kills through contact, which means that fleas don't have to bite your pet to die.

Cautions:

Individual sensitivities, while rare, may occur after using any pesticide product for pets. If signs persist, or become severe, consult a veterinarian immediately. Do not get this product in your pet's eyes or mouth.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Only use Advantage II on dogs/puppies over 3 lbs and over 7 weeks of age, and cats/kittens over 2 lbs and over 8 weeks of age.
  • Apply Advantage II once a month every month.
  • For dogs up to 20 lbs, part the pet's hair between the shoulder blades until you can see the skin. Place the tip of the applicator on the skin and release all of the tube's contents on a single spot directly on the skin.
  • For dogs 21 lbs and over, apply entire contents of the tube evenly in 3 or 4 spots on the top of the back from the shoulder to the base of the tail. At each spot, part the hair until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the applicator on the skin and release a portion of the Advantage II solution directly on the skin. Do not apply an excessive amount of solution at any one spot that could cause some of the solution to run off the side of the dog.
  • For kittens and cats, place the applicator tip through the cat's hair to the skin on the neck at the base of the skull and release all of the tube's contents on a single spot directly on the skin.
  • Use only one applicator per treatment.
Tip:

Under normal conditions Advantage II is effective for a month. However, in case of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than four weeks. Do not re-treat more often than once every seven days. After flea control is obtained, return to a monthly treatment.

Customer Reviews
Advantage II is rated 4.2348 out of 5 by 2,751.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product We have 5 extra large dogs, and 6 cats, so when we use Advantage II, we dont have any problems at all with fleas. I have found, however, it can take a couple of days before all the itching subsides. Still, for the money, this is a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Advantage 2 for cats I only trust & stand behind Advantage 2 flea medicine for cats. It's the product that I will use on my cat. I would recommend this product to others to use. It starts to work within 2 days. My cat has no flea eggs on him when I use this product. I'm a happy & satisfied Advantage cat owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I started buying Advantage II for my cats when I had a flea problem and it worked wonderfully. Hadn't had a problem since I give my cats this every month. Very pleased with the results

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fast I've always used Frontline for many years with no problems. Recently, Frontline just wasn't getting rid of the fleas and my cats were miserable. A friend suggested Advantage and a few days after applying, I noticed a big improvement. It does have a strange smell at first and leaves my cats' fur looking wet for 2 days, but it kills the fleas, fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Instantly Having been a Vet Tech in the past I have tried all the flea control products and home remedies, but this product produces results in 24 hours. I won't use anything else. Living in the South fleas are a givin, but since using Advantage II they are no longer an issue with my indoor/outdoor pets. No more fleas in the house is a huge plus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a little tube! I have two cats that have never had a flea in their life. A few months ago, i briefly fostered another cat. Once she left, I discovered that mine had terruble fleas almost to the point of getting sick. I flea combed daily, gave flea baths, sprayed with a flea spray, set flea traps but nothing was working. On the advice of a friend, I tried the Advantage. BEST MOVE EVER!!! In two days I saw improvement and in four, not one flea, not even dander and their scratching stopped. I only wish I'd found this stuff sooner. It's well worth the money and my cats are healthy and happy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will only use advantage FLEA meds on my cat. It's the only product that works & I stand behind this product. I recommend any one else to use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Stuff! I have two cats, ages 5 & 3. Until a couple of months ago, they never had fleas (indoor cats only). I adopted a third cat from the human society that unfortunately I had to take back; however, she brought an army of fleas with her that stayed. My cats got horribly covered in fleas despite multiple combings, sprays and baths. The older one was actually getting sick so I made the decision to try Advantage on advice of friends who use it on their pets. BEST DECISION EVER! I applied it the day I got it and the fleas were gone within 3 days. No matter scratching, no more dander all over the place and both cats are happy and active again. If you have any of these uninvited pests in your home, it's worth the money and relief to buy it. It's a miracle in a tiny tube.

How effective is this towards east-coast fleas (ex. Georgia)?

This is a great product. We guarantee your complete satisfaction or you get your money back. The first active ingredient is imidacloprid, which acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death. Within 12 hours of application, 98-100 percent of fleas are dead.
