The Importance of Flea Protection
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.
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.
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.

Good value for Advantage Purple (feline) by hkilarny from Hertford, NC01/10/2012
I've used Advantage Purple successfully for over ten years. Entirely Pets provides this product for a competitive price. Ordering online is hassle-free and I always have the product within 2-3 days. A-plus service.
Apparently the packaging from the factory has changed recently. The previous packaging was a little more user friendly with perforations between the doses. The vials were easy to punch out. The newer packaging requires using scissors or knives which increases the possibility of damaging the vial and losing the valuable contents. This is my only complaint.
Flea Control by Julie from Hallsville, TX10/25/2011
The Advantage ll seems to be keeping the fleas away from my cat but it has only been a few weeks.
by love my kitty kitty12/14/2011
I really am not sure. I've noticed my cat has tape worms again, so I don't think this product is working effectively.
Works Great by j1975r from CA01/12/2012
Have tried both Frontline Plus and Advantage II.
I see better results with Advantage II.
It could be that Advantage II goes by the size of your cat instead of Frontline Plus is one size fits all.
I would recommend Advantage II.
Works great - Advantage ll Flea Control by tina from VA02/03/2012
I have two indoor-only cats that had fleas. I had been using Frontline for about a year and noticed that recently it wasn't working. My vet recommended Advantage. I was told that the fleas might have developed a resistance to the Frontline. I bought Advantage ll for large cats and it has worked very well. No more scratching and not as much hair falling onto my furniture! I recommend Advantage ll, especially if what you are currently using is no longer effective.

Excelent service and a good product,would reccomend to anybody
Very Good by Barb from Indiana11/29/2011
Advantage for cats over 10 pounds works very well. I was using the 5 to10 and it was not doing the job. This time I tried the over 10 pounds dose and it is doing a very good job. I can really tell the difference. I didn't realize how much of a difference until I tried it. It has gotten rid of all the flea's.
great stuff,buy it it does work...does what it says.
Totally happy by 2fatcats from Greensboro, NC11/29/2011
This stuff worked better than Frontline for my two cats. Our fleas were pretty bad this year and we were having a hard time controlling them. After a week - we're flea free.
by marmar from Stockton Ca11/29/2011
I think this product works better than frontline for my animals
The only product that really works! by Mitzi from Canaan, CT03/27/2012
My daughter is a veterinary assistant, and when my cat picked up fleas somehow, I purchased a product at the local pet store. It didn't do a thing! When I asked my daughter for advice, she told me that buying anything besides Advantage was a complete waste of money. It's the only flea repellent recommended by the veterinary hospital where she's employed--and I can see why this is so. It's the best! We are now free of fleas.
It does the trick by Cat Mom from Iowa10/19/2011
We had fleas really bad this year because of the drought. The Advantage II does the trick. No more fleas. Not on the cats and not in the house.
This product works! by Alty from Altoona, PA01/06/2012
We noticed using another flea brand - fleas on our cats head. We decided to switch and try the Advantage II product and after using have not been able to find any fleas ! What a relief. Good product - will recommend to friends
Best Flea Killer Yet!! by EJ from Centerville, IN10/05/2011
I have three cats now and have had to deal with heavy fleas this past summer. I was using Frontline as I had heard it was the best. It was ok but turns out for my cats, Advantage was the best for them and us. I have used flea preventatives for my animals all along but when I had fleas that seemed to stay around forever, then I decided to try Advantage again. It worked so well that now I use only Advantage. I found that using Advantage on the animals along with dousing my carpets with table salt, the fleas disappeared. Now, it is Advantage monthly for all my animals.
