What is Advantage XD?
Advantage® XD is an easy-to-apply topical flea treatment for cats. It packs 2 full months of treatment and continuous protection in each dose, lasting longer than traditional 1-month formulas. This topical, spot-on formula goes on easily in seconds (see product label for more information). Advantage® XD starts killing fleas through contact in 30 minutes to 4 hours. Advantage XD kills fleas through contact, so they don't have to bite your cat to die. Advantage XD continues to kill fleas for 2 months, which outlasts the typical six week flea life cycle and prevents reinfestations. Even indoor cats need flea protection because humans and other pets can bring fleas into your home. This convenient topical solution is fragrance-free and waterproof after 24 hours.

Advantage XD Directions:
- Remove one applicator tube from tray
- Hold applicator tube in an upright position.
- Open applicator tube by twisting the nozzle tip.
- Part the hair on the neck at the base of the head until the skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube directly above the skin. For best results, apply at the base of the head, not between the shoulder blades. Avoid getting the product in your cat's eyes or mouth.
- Discard empty applicator tube in the trash.
Treatment at the base of the head will minimize the opportunity for the cat to directly lick the product.
