General Information

The successive feeding activity of fleas on pets may elicit a hypersensitivity skin disorder known as flea allergy dermatitis (FAD). Treatment of cats with Advantage rapidly kills fleas and may reduce the incidence of this condition.

Advantage kills fleas on cats within 12 hours. Reinfesting fleas are killed within 2 hours with protection against further flea infestation lasting for up to four (4) weeks. Preexisting pupae in the environment may continue to emerge for six (6) weeks or longer depending upon the climatic conditions. Larval flea stages in the pet’s surroundings are killed following contact with an Advantage treated pet.

Advantage is waterproof and remains effective following a shampoo treatment, swimming or after exposure to rain or sunlight. Monthly treatments are required for optimal control and prevention of fleas.

Storage And Disposal

Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal.
