Advantage® II Small Cat / Rabbit / Ferret kills 98-100% of the existing fleas on cats, pet rabbits and pet ferrets within 1 day after treatment. Protection against further flea infestation can last up to 4 weeks on cats and pet ferrets and up to 8 days on pet rabbits.

Retreatment at monthly intervals is required if re-infestation is continuous or if flea control is desired. Fleas, eggs, and larvae are killed following contact with skin debris from an Advantage® II Small Cat / Rabbit / Ferret treated pet. Advantage® II Small Cat / Rabbit / Ferret provides multi-stage flea control effectively breaking all flea life-cycle stages for quick and lasting control of flea populations.

Do not shampoo or immerse the animal in water immediately after treatment. The animal can be shampooed, immersed in water or exposed to rain 3 days after treatment. Advantage® II Small Cat / Rabbit / Ferret retains its ovicidal and larvicidal efficacy for up to 4 weeks on cats and pet ferrets and up to 8 days on pet rabbits following a shampoo treatment, swimming or exposure to rain. The adulticidal effect may be shortened by repeated shampooing, water immersion or exposure to rain. Reapplication on cats may be required after such activities. Do not reapply before 4 weeks on pet ferrets or pet rabbits.

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

For effective flea control, treatment of the pet should be combined with sanitation of any area used by the pet. Vacuum floors, carpets and furniture (discard vacuum bag after use) and wash the pet’s bedding, living quarters and surrounding areas. If pest problems persist, an insecticidal premise treatment may be required. A veterinarian should be consulted when pest infestation continues to be a problem on the pet.
