sitting cat Advantage® II

What is Advantage® II for Cats?

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 helps to protect against Flea Allergy Dermatitis (FAD). Available from your veterinarian in three different sizes for kittens and cats.

How does it work?

Advantage® II is not absorbed internally when applied to the skin on the back of the neck. It spreads in a thin layer and remains locked in the oil of the pets skin. Contact between fleas and the treated hair coat and skin results in paralysis and death of adult fleas.

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 cat and prevents flea eggs and larvae from developing into the next stage of the flea life cycle, effectively killing them.

How does Advantage® II benefit my cat?

Approved flea control available from your veterinarian.
