Description

Advantage II Flea Control Medium Cats 5-9 lbs

Keep your cat and your home safe from fleas with Advantage II Medium Cats 5-9 pounds. Formulated for cats eight weeks and older and weighing 5 - 9 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.

Usage Info

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.

Ingredients

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.

Active Ingredients % by Weight
Imidacloprid 9.10%

Great Price and Service by Miss Bunny from Saint Augustine, Florida06/28/2013

A great product at a great price....quick delivery too!

by from 11/04/2011

When I put the product on one of my four cats her fur turned a light ble in the area that it was applied. The other three were fine, I was just wondering if I had one that was fake. I know it sounds strange but this would be something I would never think of to make up. So if you can please get back to me. In about two weeks or so I have to give them the next treatment.

only thing working right now by mmn1 from monroe, nc03/17/2014

Have tried other flea control meds, but they have stopped working; thank goodness for Advantage II Flea Control.

Good alternative to Frontline by Catty08/06/2013

My cat doesn't seem to respond to Frontline anymore, so I tried Advantage per my vet's advice and it seems to be helping. It doesn't smell as bad as Frontline, and the price is very affordable. This item was shipped quickly to my house and I plan to order it again.

Improved product over original Advantage formula by Sue-Huntington Beach CA02/25/2013

Less greasy and much less chemical smell compared to the original formula. Although my cats don't like to be dosed, the original formula stung their eyes and may have had a burn-sensation. The Advantage II formula does not have the smell or the sting.

by from 11/18/2012

To use one of my grandchildren's favorite expressions, Advantage II Flea Control is "awesome." But so is Entirely Pets! Like most everyone in America I'm on an extremely tight budget, but I'm very good at staying within it. My sister says "Deb can pinch pennies until Lincoln screams!" Thank God for THAT gift!

What a difference!! by Cat Lover from Rockport, Texas04/17/2012

Texas has a horrible flea problem this year since it didn't get cold enough to kill any of them. My cats were in torment and another brand I used was like water. It did nothing. Then I read about Advantage II and it worked like magic. I have already ordered a second batch for next month. I have 10 cats to keep clean of fleas and this is doing the job. Thanks so much.

cats are happy and that's what it's all about by ron from florida03/21/2013

Was easy to register for purchase and payment. Timely shipment and the cats ( all feral and nuetered) will be very happy , I'm sure. If they're not itching , I'm not b****ing.

Awesome by Cat from Niagara Falls, NY04/19/2014

I've used this product for years and love it! I have even convinced my mother & cousin to use it. I can't imagine being without it again. My pets (kids) health and sanity from scratching are very important to me!

Advantage II Flea Control by Nancy from Salem, Ohio08/12/2012

I am very pleased with this product and the service.

by lou04/03/2012

very good for all my cats they don't seem to have ant more fleas or any discomfort

Effective and easy to use by 1 MO cat servant from Missouri06/06/2012

My indoor-only cats came up with fleas. Their vet says this will be a terrible year for the pests, and to keep the cats dosed with Advantage from now until the first hard freeze. I was concerned that the medication would be too much for my 18-year-old and 19-year-old cats, but no ill effects--and it takes care of the fleas well.

Advantage by fromlu from Arkansas03/29/2012

We changed to advantage last year after Frontline quit working on our cats. Advantage seems to start working instantly. We live in the South and fleas are a problem in the summer months for our in and out cats. Advantage has helped this problem tremendously. No more fleas!

Works Great by phil09/30/2013

This product works so much better than anything else on the market. I saw a difference within a few hours. The best part is no more flea baths, which my cat hated. She didn't even seem to notice this on her. It works really great.

Absolutely works by GOLFMOM from California07/15/2012

I put Advantage on my cats and never see a flea, they don't scratch or bite at fleas, no fleas in my house. Advantage absolutely works! I've been using it for years. I've tried the other brands that make the same claims and they don't work on my cats.

"from a cats view" by Babalu from Los Angeles, California06/28/2012

Being a real "Tigress" -- a la Chinese calender -- and cats being my "smaller cousins," I can feel the terribly disturbing ITCH the flea season inflicts on my beloved four-legged friends.........the reason I always buy "ADVANTAGE II" -- made by the trusted company BAYER. It's the BEST and long-lasting, 6 to 8 weeks. All 10 cats under my care -- my now indoor/outdoor feline recues -- "purringly" appreciate the needed treatment, and have become the "HAPPIEST CAMPERS" of the whole neighborhood.

by unhappy03/20/2012

I was disappointed when I opened my package and looked at my products that I ordered. I was sent some of the wrong stuff. I ordered $250.00 worth of cat flee medicine and got some for cats and some for dogs. I had to call and explain and the person on the other end was not very friendly. I tried to explain what I rcvd verses what I ordered and he said "just tell me what you didn't get so we can send that out and send a slip for you to return the other" WOW.

Great value and works for my cat by Catty06/18/2013

I've tried Frontline, but for some reason fleas seem resistant to it on my cat so my vet recommended Advantage. It's been working well so far, and is much more affordable. Definitely give it a try, it seems like different brands work well on different cats.

Good product - Good price by MagieduLac from Chelsea, QC10/23/2012

Totally satisfied. Much cheaper than at a local store. Will definitely buy again from you.

Good and long purchase by funnylittleone05/30/2013

Usually I just buy for 4 months for my cat. I decided to order 1 year's supply of flea medicine. Well I won't have to worry about it for quite a while. I have been with you for a long time and never had a complaint.

by hermbob02/12/2013

I have a six lb. cat and really like being able to buy for her weight instead of a one size fits all. It absorbs quickly.

Disappointed by Dimples02/28/2013

I don't know if the product was old or what, but on two occasions that I ordered this product, after two weeks on my cats (I have 10) it didn't work anymore and I had to use another vial because the fleas were so healthy..
