Advantage II for Cats

Advantage II for cats has been redesigned and improved, enhancing the protections the flea medicine offers for cats and their owners. Similar to other treatments for dogs, Advantage II for cats only has to be applied one time per month, and it will provide a full 30-day protection from fleas and their eggs or larvae. By cutting off the birthing cycle of the fleas, the medicine breaks any kind of establishment and infestation within the cat's hair or bed. Further, the medicine actively kills existing fleas with a half day or 12 hours, removing their ability to propagate and stay on until the medicine wears off.

The chemicals used in Advantage II are only lethal and toxic to fleas and insects. Known technically as pyriproxyfen, the prime ingredient has no impact on cats, humans or other mammals. The fleas exposed are killed quickly by the chemical, avoiding flea bites and related irritations or infections as a result.

Advantage flead medicine is waterproof, kills both adult and immature fleas, approved by the federal government for use on cats, applies easily, and each package covers from four months to a half year, depending on the size of the animal and dosage. So protect your feline friend as well as yourself from fleas. Use Advantage II Cats to draw the line of defense in your home.

    Keep your cat and your home safe from fleas with Advantage II Small Kitten for Cats under 5 pounds. Formulated for cats eight weeks and older and weighing under 5 pounds, Advantage II kills fleas within hours of application and protects against future flea infestations.

    The Importance of Flea Protection

    Protecting your cat from fleas is essential for health and well-being. Flea bites not only cause discomfort for your cat, but also can cause irritation that can lead to skin infections. In some cases, flea bites can lead to allergic skin reactions, or even result in the transmission of other disease-causing organisms, such as tapeworms.

    Kills Fleas Within Hours of Application

    Millions of pet owners have found success against fleas with Advantage Topical Solution. Its successor, Advantage II, kills even more flea life stages. Advantage II kills fleas through contact, so they don't even have to bite to be destroyed. This helps reduce the risk of secondary problems, such as flea-allergy dermatitis.

    The active ingredient in Advantage II, imidacloprid, acts on the nervous system of the flea to cause paralysis and subsequent death. Advantage II destroys the fleas living on your cat within 12 hours of application, providing quick relief for your pet. Reinfesting fleas (newly hatched fleas jumping back on your cat) are killed within two hours of application, so if your pet picks up fleas from another animal or infested environment, those fleas will be killed as well.

    Protects Against Further Flea Infestations

    If you are already dealing with a flea infestation, you may only be aware of the adult fleas, which comprise a mere 5 percent of the full infestation. The flea eggs, larvae, and pupae make up the other 95 percent of the infestation and can be virtually invisible to the eye. The insect growth regulator contained in Advantage II effectively breaks the flea life cycle at multiple stages to treat existing infestations and prevent future infestations. Each dose of Advantage II provides protection for an entire month.

    Waterproof Formula

    Advantage II is waterproof, so there's no need to reapply after your cat has a bath or goes out in the rain. Studies show that cats are still protected against fleas after exposure to water, though for best results, cats treated with Advantage II should be bathed with a non-detergent shampoo.

    How to Apply

    Applying Advantage II to your cat is a fast and easy process. First, remove the applicator tube from its packaging and use scissors to peel down the foil. Next, hold the applicator tube in an upright position and pull the cap off the tube. Use the upturned cap to break the protective seal, and you're ready for application.

    How to apply

    Part your cat's hair on the back of the neck at the base of the skull until the skin is visible, then place the tip of the tube on the skin and gently squeeze out the entire solution. Placing the treatment here minimizes the cat's ability to lick the product, which is bitter tasting and may cause salivation for a short time if licked after it is applied. Do not get this product in your cat's eyes or mouth. Dispose of the container and do not reuse or refill. Do not empty unused product in any indoor or outdoor drain.

    For optimal control and prevention of parasites, use Advantage II every month. Do not use this product on any animals other than cats.

    Length of Effectiveness

    Under normal conditions, Advantage II is effective for one month. However, in cases of severe flea infestation, retreatment may be necessary earlier than four weeks. Do not retreat more often than once every 14 days. After flea control is attained, return to a monthly retreatment schedule.

    Caution

    See back panel for first aid. For instructions on storage and disposal, see supplemental labeling inside package.

    Keep out of reach of children.

    Does the pet need a veterinarian office call in the last year to get the product?

    KEY INGREDIENTS
    Imidacloprid

    Imidacloprid is an ectoparasiticide, an antiparasitic agent that targets parasites living primarily on the surface of a host. Chemically classified as a chloronicotinyl nitroguanidine, imidacloprid inhibits neurotransmitter transmission in insects, resulting in paralysis and death.

    Benefits

    Imidacloprid exhibits both adulticide and larvicidal flea efficacy; it not only kills adult fleas and larvae on your pet, but it also kills larval stages in your pet's immediate surroundings.

    Main Purpose

    To kill fleas at all stages of their life cycles and stop them from being able to move or feed.

    Pyriproxyfen

    Pyriproxyfen, the added compound in Advantage II, is a pyridine-based pesticide. A juvenile hormone analog, it interferes with the hormone signaling of growing insects, so that insects in immature stages are unable to mature. Additionally, a female insect that touches the toxin will produce eggs that will not hatch.

    Benefits

    Pyriproxyfen provides an added layer of protection for pets and their surroundings. It interrupts the flea life cycle at multiple stages, halting the growth and development of insect eggs and larvae and preventing reinfestation.

    Main Purpose

    To prevent flea eggs from hatching and larvae from growing.
