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!
How does Advantage® II benefit my dog?
Less irritation and discomfort for your dog. Stops fleas from biting in 3-5 minutes.1-3 Kills eggs and larvae through contact: breaks more flea life cycle stages to help prevent further flea infestation.
Approved flea and lice control available through your veterinarian and local pet stores.

How to apply to your dog
Advantage® II comes in a pre-measured applicator tube appropriate for your dog’s weight. It easily spreads on the skin to provide full-body flea protection through contact.View Transcript
Follow these easy steps:
Remove collar prior to application. Remove one applicator tube from the package.
Hold applicator tube upright and pull cap off.
Use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal.
Starting at your dog’s shoulder blades, part the hair.
For small dogs, apply entire tube to one spot on the dog’s back between the shoulder blades. Do not rub the product into the skin: allow it to dry naturally.
For large dogs, apply entire tube to one or more points along the back line. Applying Advantage® II at more than one point allows the product to be spread evenly over the dog. Do not rub the product into the skin: allow it to dry naturally.
