Description

Advantage II Flea Control Kitten for Cats under 5 lbs

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.

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.

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

No, this is an insecticide, not a drug. However, the manufacturer sells its product for resale only through veterinarians, so proper usage, etc. can be explained.

Product should be safe for such use provided the patient is receiving veterinary care. Otherwise, if the pet is inactive or hospitalized in a cage, the product may not spread around the body as rapidly as usual.

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%

Didn't last very long! by Connie11/12/2011

Although it is safe for younger cats and does not require a prescription from a vet, it does not continue to kill fleas for more than two weeks.

Good stuff. by Squeak from Fremont, CA09/17/2013

I bought it for 2 stray kittens that I'm now caring for, until I can find them a home. the little guys were covered in fleas. I dosed them up & less then 6 hours later they were clear of fleas. and ready for more food. The Advantage II is at a great price, $10. bucks cheaper then the pet store that I go to.

Repelled, Did NOT Kill by ScorpioMaurus from Milwaukee, WI11/05/2011

A Huge waste of $40 the fleas stay off the kittens now and just attack us while we walk through the room it did NOT kill the fleas. I normally use Frontline but wanted to save a bit of money, Now I have to purchase Frontline for the next treatment so I didn't save anything.

I'm glad I found this by Elisa from Wisconsin11/04/2012

I am glad I found this product for use on kittens. They are hardly scratching at all and I plan on dosing them again after one month

Excellent! by Amy07/28/2013

Started working immediately! Very happy with the product and so is my cat!

Good product by Sparky from Terre Haute, IN11/26/2012

I've used Advantage flea meds off & on for years -it's very gentle for kittens. Entirely Pets also delivers quickly -think it was 48 hrs.

Excellent for Small Cats by ME204/11/2014

It's works wonderfully and is a lot cheaper than giving my small cat pills everyday!

Great for my new kitten by pwurmser07/21/2012

Took in a feral kitten and was scratching alot, so got the Advantage II and he was fine the next day, didn't see any fleas.
