Description

Advantage II Flea Control Large Cats over 9 lbs

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

Flea Cycle
The adult fleas you see are only a small percentage of the infestation.View larger.
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%
Pyriproxyfen 0.46%
Other Ingredients 90.44%
Total 100%

Net Contents

Flealess by Mo01/23/2013

We have used Advantage II Flea Control for our cats for over ten years. It is easy to use, safe and very effective. Entirely Pets has a great price and speedy service.

Big savings by Gary from Mobile, Alabama01/22/2013

I would just like to tell all who sees my review that if you want to save money then give entirelypets a try and you will see you can do more for less. Thanks for the savings entirelypets.

Barely lasted a week by FeistyAmazon07/03/2012

My kitties were itching within just a few days of applying this product. I am finding sadly, that Advantage no longer works and am looking for a product that will be far more effective for at least 4-6 weeks. It is too expensive spending the money I have to for one pack of this as I have multiple cats and this box won't last me past a month. I flea bombed before they came back in, vaccumed and did all number of things to get the flea population down, but Advantage no longer holds them off to any degree! IT is a lousy product.

Advantage for Cats by freeangel777 from Montgomery, Al11/06/2012

I have used the Advantage products for over 20 years. I have owned a total of 8 cats, not at the same time but have used the Advantage product on all my cats, and it works. No fleas on my cats for a month and no fleas in my house. I currently have an old cat, 15 yrs old that has to have this treatment every three weeks versus four weeks because she is alergeric to fleas, so this product is a blessing for her. Diane NelsonTreuil

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.

flea medicine for cats by dianenelson180677701/28/2012

they have change this medicine. It does not last a full month, maybe three weeks but I have to have something to kill the fleas

smart purchase by cj from washington state01/06/2013

good products, good price, and very speedily delivered. Thanks

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.

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.

Works great! by KittyOwner12/30/2012

I have had great results while using this product. This year is the first time I've ever had a problem with fleas in the past almost 8 years of owning pets (dogs and cats) and this product helped to get rid of them promptly. I would highly recommend this product to other consumers! :-)

Good product by i dont have one from Houston, TX06/13/2012

Seems to work for the most part. I have multiple cats and it works on them all.

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.

consistently good product by Nellie11/06/2012

I have been pleased with this product as it has been totally effective in preventing fleas on our cats. It is easy to apply but my one complaint would be it isn't easy to get out of the packaging. Our cats have had no side effects from this product.

Great Flea Protection by bluemoon from Middleport, NY08/19/2012

Eases my cats flea symptoms within hours and keeps them away! The best product for my multi-feline household.

by Thankful07/14/2012

Advantage truly works - no fleas, no eggs, no scratching. Use it regularly and you will not have any issues with your cat.

excellent outcome by Rosey with 4 cats06/19/2012

previous product stopped working (frontline) and the Advantage 2 did a great job in eliminating the fleas on our cats.

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.

Love this product by Mary from Prince of Wales, NB Canada06/22/2012

I have purchased the Advantage II for my 13 lb cat, he is outside a lot & I have never found a flea on him....I think it is the best product on the market! Love it!!

my cat loves this stuff by timmy from Lavergne., Tennessee04/06/2013

he used to hide and feel awful after getting these tubes of flee medicine, now he doesn't mind at all and there are NO FLEES. THANKS LOADS

Fleeing fleas by Old Uncle Mikey from San Francisco02/02/2013

My wife and I wish there were a less messy way to treat the cats for fleas, but Advantage definitely does the job of keeping the fleas off. We have one cat that's allergic to flea bites and this is a life-saver for her.

Quick Shipping!!! by mduff07/22/2012

Last time I ordered flea/tick control online (different company). I waited three weeks before I got my order. Fleas were out of control by that time. Entirely Pets: GREAT PRICES and fast shipping :-)

works well by Kris01/23/2013

This is a tried and true product that works well on my cats. Easy to use.

Switching products by cat lover07/23/2012

Our vet told us last week that Advantage ll does not protect our cats from ticks. In the future we will be switching to Frontline Plus. Cat lovers take note. jnj Hendersonville NC

Best price! by Jenny from Massachusetts12/10/2012

I have 3 cats, one outdoor two indoor. This is the best product! I tried frontline and the fleas were immune to it! I tried this and within 24 hours the fleas are gone! I could purchase Advantage at my local pet store, but its almost $20 more! I've been using this for 6 months, and I highly recommend it!

by from 10/29/2011

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.

no fleas here! by lori03/06/2013

We have had very good luck with keeping the fleas away since we started using advantage on our cats.

by kari from Indianapolis, IN05/09/2013

This product works great for cats. It is easy to apply, at the nape of their necks, and appears to be fragrance free

by donnacat11/25/2012

I've been using Frontline and it seemed to just stop working after 2 wks. Advantage II got rid of the fleas and it's been 3 wks. now and no fleas!

Does a good job by Barb from Indiana06/11/2013

I have to over weight cats. the advantage 11, works great. I tried the regular and it did not last a month and didn't seem to kill all the flea's I would recomend the advantage 11 if you have large cats. It works well.

Works great but be advised... by Swedee05/30/2013

First used this in June 2010. All cats responded well--except one stopped eating after one week, was tested and pronounced terminally ill; but by continuing to feed by dropper and rubbing on mouth, after one month the cat suddenly recovered his appetite! An apparent reaction to the medication. He had dropped from 12 to 7 pounds; has recovered and now weighs 13 pounds. This May 2013 applied medication to 7 cats; one cat aged 16 reacted by pulling a large section of fur off of his back and neck--wherever the med was applied. I will not re-treat either cat with reaction. They get enough residual protection from the other cats.

Great price! by Kathy07/31/2012

I shopped around and this is the best price I found for the product that my vet highly recommends. Especially if your cat is allergic to flea bites, this is what to get.

by outdoor girl from New Albany, PA10/22/2012

great product, seems to work better than Frontline Plus

Great product! by DaisyGirl02/22/2013

Love this stuff! It really does work to keep the fleas off of my pets!

Quality Product with Quality Price by Bern from Bronx, NY01/22/2012

As a rescuer, I work in volume and need best product for best price. That is what I got with this purchase for Flea control, Advantage II for cats over 9 lbs.

Never Disappointed by Betsy from Los Angeles, CA05/15/2013

I have used Entirely Pets for over 6 years and have never been disappointed - in fact, the service constantly exceeds my expectations. The price is the best. The shipment arrives faster than promised. The product is correct, and the website ordering easy to use. Thank you for being all that you promise.

works well,easy to apply by Joyce from Mobile, Al08/10/2012

We live in the deep south and have tons of problems with fleas-even though my cats are all indoors we treat all of our dogs and cats here-all year around!

Hassle free purchases by catsmeow from Richlands, NC06/26/2013

I love the convenience of being able to order the advantage II products for my cats from the comfort of my home and receiving them so quickly. I have always been completely satisfied with every order from Entirely Pets!! I also enjoy the promotional codes that allow me to purchase the same great products I can get from my vet at a much lower price.

Didn't work for me this time by Laura from Vidalia, GA11/06/2012

I have a cat that goes in and out, it didn't seem to take care of the fleas this year. I will try something new next time. I live in the country and I think the fleas and ticks are worse here.

Good Product by Johanne12/15/2012

Have used this product for a few years with our cat though not full proof.

by rich.04/29/2012

great stuff,buy it it does work...does what it says.

by from 11/14/2012

I have used this product many times over the 8 years I have had my cat. I have bought the product both locally and using other websites similar to entirely pets. I'm sorry to say that this time the product seems to be less effective for fighting off fleas. I had to give my cat another dose a few weeks early because she seems to be scracthing/itching now. I'm wondering if this product is diluted or possibly expired, given the discounted price.

So So Satisfaction by Natasha from Charleston, SC~So

Great Value by Shelleyt from Nova Scotia,Canada06/07/2013

Ordering my flea products from you folks has been a big savings which really helps when a person has more than one to provide for.Thanks! :)

advantage II for large cats by MarBear from New Brunswick, Canada12/19/2012

I have a long hair very large orange cat that loves the outside in the summer, he have never been bothered by fleas. I apply the advantage once a month...it's that easy. I have never used anything else. Love the product.

Great Product by cweberrn from Pasadena, CA02/20/2013

We had a massive flea infestation and our cats were just covered in fleas. Money is tight so I couldn't afford to buy Advantage which I had always used in the past. Luckily I got a check that I wasn't expecting and now I had the money to buy my cats the Advantage that they needed. Within 48 hours they were flea free and I was finding dead or mostly dead fleas in my bed where the cats all like to sleep. This new formula seems to work a lot better than the original and for that I am very grateful. I'm sure my cats are too! Also I was able to get the products on sale and that definitely helped my budget.

Win the great flea wars! by dj from Sunnyvale, CA01/16/2013

After years of being flea free, they managed to invade our happy home and make the cat's life a misery. This product is quick and easy to use, and I have observed no negative side effects.

Good as it gets by citycat from Port Richey, FL11/09/2012

I live in Florida where fleas are a year round problem. My cats usually can go out in the yard without getting fleas.

Love the Advantage II by Cindy from Eugene, Oregon12/27/2012

I have 6 cats and have just adopted a dog. I use the Advantage II monthly and have had no fleas, even when there is an outbreak in our area. Love this product!

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.

Great purchase by AngieM from Upstate New York03/18/2013

I have never been dissapointed with this product or from this supplier.

Great product, but doesn't include de wormer by bill from Ottawa Canada06/04/2013

We've bought this product before and works well, but in the past it also had a de wormer in the product as well and now it doesn't.

Good value and great shipping. thanks -gv

Advantage by Teralee105/26/2013

Great product--no more fleas I'll be buying it again!

Good product by Barb07/11/2012

I have three cats and Advantage ll is the best I have found. At first I was using the regular size. It wasn't working. Then I discovered they had a large cat size. I tried it and it works just fine. It really made a big difference. Worked fast and lasted longer. So I will keep using the large cat size from now on. Just wish they would come out with one that doesn't have a odor that the cats can smell. That way I wouldn't have to hold them down to apply. and we would all be happy.

Advantage 2 by karmanigault from South Carolina03/08/2013

As always a great price for Advantage 2 and fast service. This product does the job

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.

Worth the money by Texas Shopper Donna05/21/2013

Works great - lasts longer than expected and is money well spent.

working great!!! by dtreuil from Montgomery, Al01/15/2013

I have been using Advantage for Cats now over 15 years with a total of 6 cats, not all at one time and the product works. I currently have two cats left and one goes out and in daily while the other due to age is house bound. They both do very well on the product and I have not seen a flea yet. Thanks

Never again!!! by scochra4 from TN05/20/2013

It's that special moment... When you take your cat to the vet, only to be fussed at because she is eat up with fleas & ticks, and it's only been 20 days since you treated her!

economical purchase by peggy from Cincinnati, OH05/29/2012

I have 3 cats so a 6 month supply is good for 2 rounds for the cats. Cats don't like it though and avoid us when they see we want to apply it to them.

by strawberry from kingston ont. Canada06/02/2013

ordered online late Saturday night and the package was in my mailbox on Monday.

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.

Works Great by Icabode from Birmingham, AL11/07/2012

This works much better than any other brand

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

Great product by Pam from Enumclaw, WA03/15/2012

Advantage 2 for Cats by Rosey with 4 cats05/05/2012

Very happy with the advantage product. The previous product we were using stopped working. When we applied the advantage, we noticed a decrease in the flea problem on our 4 cats. We will certainly stay with Advantage for awhile.

Advantage II by Tams from Torrance, CA07/06/2012

Excellent product. We have used this product for a while on 2 cats with great results.

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.
