The active ingredient in Advantage flea treatment for dogs is able to kill fleas through contact, so fleas don’t have to bite your pet to be killed.1 It’s easy to apply, fast and effective, and helps protect your dog against fleas.
How do dogs get fleas?
Fleas can invite themselves into your home and onto your dog in several ways:
If you come in contact with fleas, these pesky parasites can hitch a ride on you or your clothing and enter your home.
Other pets your dog comes in contact with can pass fleas to your dog.
Wild animals such as rabbits and possums can transport fleas into your garden, and your dog may pick them up there.
Don’t forget to think about all of your pets you might not have seen the cat scratching, but if they are not treated they could bring fleas into your home too.
How often do I use Advantage?
It is recommended that you apply Advantage to your dog once a month all year round.
When to start using Advantage?
You can use Advantage on your puppy from birth. However, treatment of the mother prior to weaning protects the litter while in contact so it is not usually necessary to treat unweaned puppies. Treat the mother until weaning and the individual puppies afterwards.
Can I use Advantage on a pregnant or lactating bitch?
Yes, Advantage is registered for use during pregnancy and lactation.
